1. Stroll the Highline. New urban oasis on an obsolete elevated railway on the westside. 2nd section opens this week on June 8th.
2. Visit MoMA; World class museum where you can impress your date with your infinite wisdom of Picasso's eating habits. Hours extend to 8 on Fridays, and 8:45 on Thursdays in July and August.
3. Kayak the Hudson or East River. Maybe not for a 1st date (unless you decide your date is a jerk in the first few minutes, and you want to take the chance on seeing them tip into the murky East River after a barge comes by) but brilliant for those who are outdoor-inclined.... Read More
The biggest question being tossed around lately at me is: Do you think that blogging will eventually die out? My answer to that is: As long as you’re staring into that beautiful screen of yours where you’re getting most of your information from, then “NO”, no way, of course not. Not only is blogging bringing in a little extra cash for some of you bloggers but also it’s become a social phenomenon. Today it’s a whole new universe, and at BlogCatalog we’re connecting not only to our readers but also to the people behind their blogs. Our own blog, on BlogCatalog, has become quite interesting...

Dear Talk About It,
I found out from a friend of mine who does exotic dancing that Charlie Sheen is open to bringing in another goddess in his home! I'm so excited I don't know what to do. I have watched all of his shows and all of his recent interviews and think he is so hot! I really want to be with him but I'm having a hard time deciding how I can capture his attention. My girlfriend knows this guy who knows one of Charlie's former bodyguards who can help give him something from me. What should I do?
Hot for Charlie <3

Although Philip Lucky Dube has left this crazy world, he is always remembered. Dube was gunned down on October 18, 2007. His untimely death will always brings heartbreaking memories. He was unjustly assassinated while the world still needed him to preach peace, freedom for all human beings. He was gunned down in the presence of his son and daughter, whom he had dropped off in Rosettenville, Johannesburg in what is assumed to be a car hijacking crime.
Although the Rastafarians in Jamaica do not believe in death, it is difficult for me to follow that tradition and simply state that, ‘Him... Read More
A few months ago marked the 1st anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death. A death that shocked the world to a certain degree. He left a legion of fans in mournful remembrance. Jackson’s death, like his life, was shrouded in conspiracy and bizarre events. Another Icon becomes the victim of fame. We should have seen it coming. History it seems, when it comes to popular Icons, revels on repetition. Think Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Lee and Kurt Cobain. So many of these Icons left us in their prime. So what went wrong and why the trend?
An Icon by definition is a devotional... Read More
Who can I trust in a world of gossip?
What subject can I write about that has never been addressed?
Where can I find happiness in a "depressed America?"
When do I know, and not just hope or think?
Why do I make myself stay awake, when my body desires sleep?
How do I give and not expect to receive?
Which religion do I believe when they all claim to be true?
Whatever shall I do when all else fails, and accomplishment is key?
Whose worthy of a princess if he is not willing to make her his Queen?

Light-pink satin toe shoes dangled from their ribbons, tied together and hung over the back of the wooden chair. Their owner sat on the floor mat massaging her feet. Her big toes showed traces of blood. Today she had ceased exercises as soon as she felt her toes beginning to burn. Overdoing it wouldn't be helpful in the least. The performance was only ten days away. She needed to be in strong physical shape in order to dance the steps, make the jumps and stand on her toes throughout most of the presentation.
She was going to soak her feet in cold water laden with Epsom salts. The minerals... Read More

Shaun you're probably nearer the mark than most. "mmm...right right" spoken with contemplative "yawn" inflection when you join a writers' group or dare blurt out in front of established writers (any writers) you tend to scribble, usually sending all...
Very interesting train of thoughts, but I found myself asking, what about those that write under a ghost name...is it to keep their privacy, or perhaps lack of ego...I actually can see both sides, especially when you are talking about writing fiction....
