Giveaway Of The Week: We Covet Wow Wow Wubbzy! I like him because his show reminds me of the cartoons that I used to watch as a kid in the late seventies, and he's at least a little bit aesthetically interesting (sort of a streamlined, japanimation version of Spongebob Squarepants. Or a fuzzy hunk of cheese.) And you can win him! And his DVD! And stuff!

 

Chic Cheap Accessories We Covet The simplest way to look like you cracked the fashion code this fall is to go heavy on the bracelets.

We Covet Getting Tied Up In Knots I'm sure there must be many practical uses for this -- like, say, if you're one of those people that actually enjoys being out-of-doors and camping and stuff (shudder) -- but in my book nothing says Quirky Self-Sufficiency quite like being a master of knot-tying.

We Covet Can Has Cheezburger Book? I'm sorry, but it still hasn't gotten old for me.

GIVEAWAY: Babysitter Finder We Covet We the We Covet ladies are very pro-babysitter.

We Covet Cool Ties For Guys These hand-crafted, original silk ties from Sovereign Beck work just as well on design school types in heavy black frames as Wall Streeters in pin stripes.

Non-PC but Totally Cute Jewelry Item We Covet OK, so those people who don't believe in using animal skins are probably going to hate me for this one, but still. WORTH IT.

Hands Off: Jay Smooth is my Hip-Hop Vlogging Boyfriend

Jaysmooth

Meet Jay Smooth. He's a hip-hop artist and founder of the blog hiphopmusic.com. But I came to know him through his personal vlog, Ill Doctrine. And although I am ambivalently child-free and married to another man, when I watch Jay's insightful, funny and dead-on vlogs, I hear a high-pitched whine from my uterus to make little Jay Smooths with him. This vlogger crush may actually be even more fervent than my crush on zefrank, though not quite as bad as my crush on fictional vlogger Dr. Horrible, because, really, how could I love another that deeply?

Just let me show you what I'm talking about:

Because Here At MamaPop, We Like Us Some Peoples

Internetsinabox

MamaPop was asked to contribute a top ten list to Six Apart's new Blogs.com venture, and how could we refuse?

For one thing, we have EXCELLENT taste, and are incredibly discerning about the pop culture trash we consume. We are like dumpster divers whose garbage-palates have been refined through experience. Connoisseurs of rubbish, as it were.

And for another, we play favorites -- unabashedly, shamelessly. And, moreover, we feel certain that it is of great importance that our favorites be shared with the world, for the betterment of all humankind. You're welcome.

So without further ado, MamaPop's Top Ten Favorite Entertainment Blogs Of Super Mega Awesomeness.

Read em' and weep, suckas. Word to yer mutha.
