I will never understand the obsession a disturbingly high number of men have with womens' feet, for example, and I doubt Rex Ryan could explain it to me.
Because maybe I'm wrong but I've never heard of April Fools' jokes starting early.
But GQ articles editor Devin Gordon put all that noise to rest:
Blanket tweet, since this is coming up a lot: No, this story is not an early April Fools joke. gq.com/news-politics/…

The linked photos above are from his radio show days last fall. Should remove all doubt.
I RTFA. Short version: Bissinger is extremely pretentious and self-centered, thinks about his clothes constantly, wastes $$$$, not much of writer, father or husband anymore, but seems to think his mid-life crisis is important because it's about him.
I don't actually care whether it's a joke. I've never heard of Friday Night Lights before this and my only exposure to Buzz Bissinger is when he was sitting in a chair looking angry, very angry, as Will Leitch was running rings around him in a discussion about media.
I have no intention to read the many pages of this article; I have no intention to ever care about Buzz Bissinger or the twisted things he's into. If he tells me he has spent $600,000 on Gucci clothing or whatever it is (I thought they just made bags), I will believe him.
Also, this thread is useless without commentary by our resident fashion plates, like (IIRC) Smitty.
I was expecting a Keyshawn hijack.
I just learned that Buzz Bissinger isn't a character from the Tank McNamara comic strip.... so that's something...
1. You're kind of being a killjoy here. Bissinger is an ####### and any opportunity to mock him should be seized. If George Saunders has confessed to a Gucci addiction, I'd probably seriously consider that I was missing out and I should also start buying Gucci. I want to look hip and dangerous, too!
I wonder what his kids think reading this article. Well, I'm going to inherit a fortune in tacky Gucci clothes that may be valuable if we can scrape off all the crusted ejaculate!
I doubt he's buying leather goods every single day like a true addict.
Oh and there is never a situation in which a man should be wearing high heel boots in public.
What if you're the king of France?
Leather is for bikers, celebrities, and kids.
I have a really nice leather jacket, but I always feel silly when I try it on and end up going with something else. I would feel more comfortable wearing it with sunglasses and a European accent.
"Buzz Bissinger" is one of those thousands of names that sort of float around in the space occupied by "Justin Lieber"
There are only two times a man should wear leather in public (what you do in private is your own business). He can wear leather if it is for a movie with a budget of at least 40 million dollars and he can wear leather if he wears it while driving a motorcycle but he better be near that damn bike at all times otherwise he looks like a doofus. Also it can only be black (and not shiny black) or brown (basic black or brown).
I've seen 2 of the 4; I've not seen Animal House or Princess Bride (despite the appearance of one Peter Falk).
I tried watching Animal House a few years ago and shut it off about 30 minutes in. It held zero interest for me.
As to Princess Bride, it's simply not my kind of movie, even though I generally like comedies. I also don't see the period pieces or "epics" like Lincoln. Or anything that is set before 1960 or in a foreign land or with kings and dragons and sorcerers and emperors and witches.
The basic premise of Animal House seems to me to be "revoltingly stupid people do revoltingly stupid things." I'm not sure why that's supposed to be funny.
Gef, thanks for sharing. Three times :-)
I take it you're not a fan of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
I think that goes without saying though if you're a butcher and you're walking down the street in a leather apron there is in fact something wrong you.
See my previous post about not having had cable in 8-odd years. The handful of shows I've watched on DVD since then have invariably been horror/sf.
It was sidesplittingly funny for me,
It was sidesplittingly funny for me, because that was exactly what Duke was like circa 1962**, with the SAE House and the ultra-uptight student Judicial Board. And every other Duke alum I knew at the time that movie was released had the same reaction.
like the one when the send-up of the folk singer guy is singing the "I gave my love a cherry..." song to the rapt, adoring, women, and Belushi grabs his guitar, smashes it to bits, and then politely says, "Sorry."
The last non-sf/horror show I watched regularly was ... season 2 or so of Gilmore Girls? Felicity? Maybe Allie McBeal?
Now the first few seasons of Gilmore Girls I will stand by as quality television, not just because of when I first saw it!
Then again, I love The Three Stooges.
I'm guessing "no," given the demographic skew and general tastes of BBTF, but, has anybody else seen Spring Breakers yet? Cuz, if you haven't, you should. It's ####### fantastic. I promise you this opinion is coming from a place of movie snobbery and not "OMG Selena Gomez 4 lyfe," too!
I definitely want to see it although I'm having a difficult time convincing the wife it's for legitimate film watching reasons. The preview looked amazing.
[Animal House] was sidesplittingly funny for me, because that was exactly what Duke was like circa 1962**, with the SAE House and the ultra-uptight student Judicial Board. And every other Duke alum I knew at the time that movie was released had the same reaction.
