This Week In Girl Geek: Wherein I Let Veronica Mars Say Goodbye for Me

Posted at 10:30 AM May 07, 2010

By Kiala Kazebee


Anyone who follows me on Twitter* has recently been subjected to a barrage of tweets about Season 3 of Veronica Mars. You see, I stopped watching VM after the second season SUCKED SO HARD. I had no idea the third (and final) season was all Veronica Goes To College-y just like in BTVS Season Four when Buffy Goes To College! SQUEE!

And, unlike the original Beverly Hills, 90210 (which really went down the pooper when the kids all decided to attend the same fake UCLA school) when VM embarks on her path to higher education, Veronica Mars: The College Year is actually watchable. And smart. And funny. JUST LIKE IN BTVS SEASON FOUR WHEN BUFFY GOES TO COLLEGE SQUEE! Although I have to admit I was disproportionately angry when Veronica's new R.A. said "frak" and then had to explain it to her. Ugh. At least she's learning something important in school, though? I guess?

Why am I talking about Veronica Mars, you ask? What does a series about a smart, funny, forthright and beautiful girl with a penchant for investigating female hate crimes brought to an abrupt hault just when things were getting really good have to do with anything? Are you a moron? OUR BLOG IS SHUTTING DOWN. Do I have to draw you a picture? Because I will. I like drawing pictures. Anyway.

Since Heartless Doll launched in July 2008, we've brought you lists concerning all things lady: news, geekery, beauty, fashion, sex, feminism, boozing ... the list could go on and on. In fact, today the list will go on, because today's list is a list of the top 10 top 10 lists, by hits, posted on Heartless Doll.

10. Top 10 Best And Worst Things About Dating Nerds

Predictably, the Diggers were all a-digger about this nerd dating list I posted on April 22, 2009. For while dating nerds has many advantages, there are also some drawbacks--breathless sincerity and action figures in bed being two particular offenders.


9. Top 10 Most Ridiculous Undergarments Worn By Women In Video Games

An evergreen favorite, Bonnie Ruberg's video game panties list continues to trend for Heartless Doll. (Video games and panties ... yeah, go figure.) One of our first, posted July 22, 2008, this list wants answers about Lara Croft, beach volleyball and how in the world underwear passes for armor in the virtual world.

It's your end-o-week man dance!

Posted at 4:45 PM May 06, 2010

By Andrea Grimes


Because our links to videos of United States military guys doing awesome renditions of pop songs has gone over so well with our very randy readership, I think it's only fair to continue the tradition today with this video of Paul Rudd on Tim 'n Eric.

Sadly, while nude dancing is implied, it isn't shown. WHY DO YOU TEASE US TIM AND ERIC?

Are shopping videos haul they're made out to be?

Posted at 3:00 PM May 06, 2010

By Andrea Grimes


YouTube has had no small part in this new era of overshare, not least of which is the apparent trend of putting childbirth videos online. But while there may be something educational and useful about a gaping, baby-producing vag video, I fail to see who in the world could care even the tiniest bit about "haul videos."

What is a "haul video," you ask? The New York Times is here to tell you, today: they're home-filmed vids featuring (mostly) women showing off the crap they just bought at Target or wherever.

Ladies of the World, how do you doo?

Posted at 8:00 AM May 06, 2010

Ladies of the World,

You may not realize this, but Maxim magazine knows you well. Intimately, even. Maxim magazine knows what you like: things that are not in Maxim magazine. What you like to do: posing naked in skimpy lingerie. What you like to have sex with: anything with a swinging dick. And now, how you go to the bathroom when time for Number Two comes around. It's like they're reading our diaries, they understand us ladies so well!

See, girls like frilly puffy rainbows when they're bowelly engaged, and guys like wiping their asses with pinecones in the presence of hardened criminals as long as they're sitting on a germ-infested seat where the entire world can hear their activities.

Maxim even made a graph for us!

The Lady Politic: Mom-in-Chief

Posted at 7:00 AM May 06, 2010

By Naomi Zeveloff


This Sunday is Mother's Day. Which means it's time to talk about the best mother in politics: Hillary Clinton. Gotcha! We all know that Chelsea had to chip her way out of Clinton's womb with an ice pick. The real best mother is Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who is such a good mother that she wrote a book to America's daughters entitled "Know Your Power."

Well, it takes one's power to know one's power, Madame Speaker. Not only did Pelosi pass sweeping health care reform, but she also birthed five children in her day. And, to hear her tell it, there's no better boot camp for political life than motherhood.
