    helpamazon has made it easy to donate towards the relief effort underway in east africa and south asia following the horrible tsunamis on december 26th. an absolutely staggering 116,000 people are estimated to have lost their lives, and that’s just as of this posting… please take a moment, find something you can do without buying in upcoming weeks (a fancy dinner, a round of drinks, a video game, your morning latte) and make your way over there to contribute. feel free to use these badges to help spread awareness, which is oh so difficult during the holidays. thanks for your time.

    jerry orbach died today of prostate cancer, which he’d been battling since earlier this year. orbach, as lennie briscoe, was an amazing fixture (so much more than an actor) on law & order, one of my favorite shows (as many of you know). gothamist has an excellent post, so i’ll just send you over there instead of copying the links… and if you haven’t had a chance to watch him in action, flip on TNT for syndicated episodes – they’re on every night.

    on SNL tonight the tv funhouse was a spoof on rudolph, and i’m honestly still laughing… rudolph was doing his thing, yelling “merry christmas delaware! next stop virginia and north carolina!” but santa said “no rudolph, we’re skipping them this year! screw the red states, voting for that dumbass president just because of that moral values crap. i don’t want any part of them!” then he wipped out a map of the us, which had the blue states labled “america” and the big red blob of bullshit labled “dumbf***istan.” they even changed rudolph’s nose to blue, and santa met up with natalie merchant, moby, al franken, and margaret cho. all i can say is i’m glad santa is stopping up here at least! :)
