its not all brutal truth & awful revelations here @ the hours set. apparently there's a book & a blog called Stuff White People Like by a guy named Christian Lander, who just happened to be on Late Night with Conan Obrien (the only late night talk show that's even remotely tolerable). the interview was actually pretty funny. this Lander guy kinda sounded like me talking about white people, but in a much safer & cuddlier package.
recently i've been on a quest to figure out how to think like a white man so i can continue to advance my plans for world domination. i've been busy watching lots of Woody Allen movies, the Muse on Bloomberg TV & listening to NPR as much as possible all in an attempt to foster my delicate liberal sensibilities, but little did i know that my man Christian Lander literally wrote the book on all the whimsically ridiculous shit that white people like!
here are some hilarious examples:
