Hanukkah Ideas: Barbra Streisand’s Book Is “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” For Your Elders

What do Barbra Streisand and Kanye West have in common? Read More

While we will probably spend the next few days discussing how amazing Kanye’s new album is, let’s not forget that Barbra Streisand just put out her own My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, but she called it My Passion for Design.

Before I go any further I should probably mention My Passion is actually a book, not an album.  But after I caught a glimpse of the cover, I realized that Kanye and Babs have something in common:  they seem to be the only two people on the planet that genuinely don’t give a crap about the recession.  They’re like “we’re rich, bitches, and we’re gonna flaunt it.  We’re gonna get people to paint us humping a sphinx or snap us hanging out with a dog that looks like it costs at least $15K.”

Go out and purchase 3 or 4 copies of this, because it’s the perfect Hanukkah gift for your grandma, your grandma’s mahjong buddies, maybe your mom, that girl that reminds you of Rachel from Glee, and that drag queen who does a mean Liza impersonation.
