‘Sadness Town!’ plays terrible music for laughs

Local comedian David Tveite is sending-up Linkin Park, Godsmack and every other awful band you loved in high school.

Looking for a race less challenging than a marathon?

Forget 26.2 or 13.1. Try .10 or .05 if you want to participate in a race without months (or even minutes) of training.

Why follow Kim Kardashian on Twitter when you can follow Kim Kierkegaardashian?


Kim Kardashian: our new resource for Kierkegaardian thought. (Jonathan Short - AP)

Forget about Feminist Ryan Gosling and all his “Hey girl” commentary about gender issues. The new mash-up of celebrity silliness and intellectual thought has arrived, via the Kim Kierkegaardashian Twitter feed.

Yes, this is exactly what it sounds like: serious philosophical thought from Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard mixed with chipper observations from Kim Kardashian. (Well, they aren’t really from her but they very easily could be.)

The Kim Kierkegaardashian Twitter feed was born only a few weeks ago, but it already has 10,000-plus followers. It also helps that Buzzfeed picked up on it today.

Basically what you have is profound ideas that exercise your brain, combined with mindless comments that lower your IQ. Put the two together and they cancel each other out, allowing your mind to do exactly nothing while you read this online stream of idiot-losophy. But it’s pretty entertaining, as you can see from the additional tweets embedded below.

It’s also worth noting that Justin Buber — a Twitter feed that combines Biebs’ musings with “the existential wisdom of philosopher Martin Buber” — pre-existed Kim Kierkegaardashian. Luckily Kim Kierkegaardashian is a generous existentialist, which is why she retweeted one of his tweets earlier today.

Which other celebrities deserve a philosophical counterpart? Padma Locke-shmi? Dita Von Socrateese? Feel free to make suggestions in the comments section.
