So one of those studies where they analyze the most exuberant countries in the world was just undertaken again. I was not surprised by the results, although I would have liked to see Sweden on the list.

why: because it is nicknamed "the World's Youngest Country"
it is pretty
it is right next to Australia

why: because all those spawn of British rejects are really quite pleased with themselves!
it is kind of warm
nobody lives in the middle!
it IS Australia
"I'm moving to Australia!"- Alexander
they have great electronic music (i.e. Cut Copy and the Presets)
they are attractive and also tan.

why: because Finland is awesome?
because they are near Sweden.
I love you Finland, you are our 4th or 5th largest group of readers.
they have Moomin
their government doesn't suck
they make good design
IDK what else to say
except that a group of Finns told me I looked like that bitch from Gilmore Girls. thanks!


because it too is close to Sweden!
all the Danes I've met have been really happy, which I think is sweet.
it's easy to start a business in Denmark!
they ride bikes everywhere
Qand you know, speak English.
I think they owned Greenland at one point. AWESOME.

I kind of wish I owned Greenland....>_>.....<_ div="">
who owns Greenland now?




countries that did not make the list
North Korea

why the United States did not make the list
we have
the tea party and Juggalos.

things that are coming up for the Useless Critic:

some kind of Oscar pool
another Ursula review!
two interview-things
concert listings
a review of the new Cut Copy album
a review of that new Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher film which I may or may not be seeing.

- b-r-i-t-t


  1. New Zealand also wins because they have Flight of the Conchords!

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

An Open Letter to the Actress: Milena Govich

Dear Milena Govich, Hey, how are you? What is up? Well, I assume you might get 5-7 fan letters a week, but I hope the glitter on my envelope stood out to you. In all seriousness, I have not been the most loyal fan of your filmography, but in the opening credits of the 2006 show, “Conviction,” I got to see you in your underwear. Ever since then, I have been one of your most active online stalkers (not a crime in all states I think). In the next letter, I promise to include an underwear photo for you, so we'll be even. Milena, I remember even back to the days when you worked on one of those other 200 Dick Wolf projects you did...what was the name of that show? “Law and Order.” Yes, that was it. You made history as playing the first female lead detective on the “Law and Order” original franchise for your role as Detective Cassidy. However, I will have to note your performance was strongly tainted when Chevy Chase guest-starred and gave you the nickname, “Detective Sugar-Tits.” At leas
