Last week Justin Bieber, who has generally stayed on our good side (mostly by virtue of his chivalry), went ahead and tried to change that by wearing a Kelly Kapowski t-shirt, even though a) Saved by the Bell came and went before he was even born, b) she is OURS, and he should know that and thus he should STAY AWAY, and c) he’s Canadian.
Bieber, you can have Selena Gomez, or Miranda Cosgrove, or Vanessa Hudgens, or Taylor Momsen, or any of these girls who can’t rent a car. But anyone born pre-Top Gun is mine. You got that? Stay the FUCK away!
But we’re not worried. Tiffani can fight her own battles. Here’s how she responded:
We expect to often see search terms like “justin bieber” and “miranda cosgrove,” and to a lesser, but more encouraging, extent “rashida jones” and “tom westman,” but it surprised us how often one of our top results has been “nasim pedrad,” the talented and pretty comedian now in her sophomore season on SNL. Not that we think that she doesn’t warrant that kind of attention, but it’s intriguing that web surfers have taken a particular interest in Pedrad, considering that SNL has no shortage of attractive and funny female cast members (Kristen Wiig, Abby Elliott, Vanessa Bayer, Jenny Slate until this season). Then again, it’s not terribly shocking, as Pedrad has continued to impress us with her diversity and poise, deftly portraying women like Kim Kardashian, Azam Farahi (aka Mrs. Ahmadinejad) and Cristiane Amanpour, as well as performing Lil Blaster in the Underground Records commercials.
Pedrad has also fallen into the unfortunate pattern of playing hyperactive, loquacious, often male, teenagers, which has been the only knock against her so far. However, despite that, our favorite performance from Pedrad was as wise beyond her years teenager Bedilia, a confident young lady who exhibits just a little too much appreciation for her parents.

See? She more than holds her own against Alec Baldwin there. If Pedrad can excise those other, more annoying, less successful characters then we see no reason why she won’t be one of our most popular search terms for years to come.
We’re lucky enough to post one of our all-time favorite clips today, thanks to the popular search terms “miranda cosgrove and justin bieber.” Those words have probably brought more teenage girls and middle age men to this site than any other. They likely realized pretty quickly that this site really isn’t for them, but we were happy to have them nonetheless.
From the wayback machine, here’s a young Justin Bieber calling out at Kanye at the 2009 VMAs:
They look SO young!
(and now we just sit back and watch the page views roll in)
Big news! Last week we passed the 300 post mark! That’s only going to happen once ever, so it’s a pretty big historical event. So, once again, thank you, thank you, thank you, to all those people who search for Miranda Cosgrove, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift and somehow ended up on this blog. THANK YOU. You guys are the reason we do this.
With us passing the 300 mark, we thought it’d be a good time to do an internal audit to see how we’re doing with our previously stated our goal of 365 posts in 365 days. Unfortunately, the results aren’t very encouraging. With 46 days remaining in 2010 we’re only nearing the 200 post mark for the calendar year, which means to reach our objective we’d need maintain an average output of 3.5 posts per day. However, if you eliminate weekends then that figure climbs to almost 5 posts per day, a number that grows even more daunting when you factor in the upcoming holidays, as well as our week-long vacation in early December. HOWEVER, we’re not throwing in the towel just yet. We might not hit our quota, but we’re going to keep reaching for that brass ring and do our darndest to end 2010 on a high note. A crescendo even.
And just so you don’t think we’re cheating with this post:

So I was checking my blog stats (yes, I am curious) and noticed that the top search that leads to this site is “miranda cosgrove,” the 16 year-old star of iCarly whom I referenced in my post about the VMAs. This is kinda concerning because either a) her legions of teen fans are scouring the web looking for more information on Miss Cosgrove or b) her legions of adult fans are scouring the web looking for more information on Miss Cosgrove. I really hope it’s option A.
Should I even tag her name here, or is that just inviting more trouble?
