By TheFamilyInTheCar, published on May 25, 2008

I can remember having a cell phone when others didn't. However, post 9/11 has made having a cell a necessity. I know this is true, being a person born and raised in New York City.

The nomination has swung... (more)

...on women with the credo of "Celebrity, Sex, Fashion, Without Airbrushing."

It started at 12:07 p.m. EST with the posting by Gawker's intrepid weekend editor of congratulations to Jezebel. Today Jezebel and its editors and contributors were highlighted in a rather tepid story in the New York Times Fashion & Stylesection centering on the site's posts, comments, commenters, and the policing thereof. The headline of the story read "Not on Our Blog You Won't."

Because no interest is static, often there are stories on, for example, Kotaku that Consumerist readers may be... (more)

... the signage outside, but in a glowing orange neon. That neon didn't hold my attention for long because once I looked up, I almost forgot why I came in there in the first place. Before my peepers was a colorful mural using famous personalities to depict the Route 66 starting in what I think was New York and ending in Hollywood. Along the way, there were images of Louis Armstrong, John Wayne and James Dean with Marilyn Monroe hugging him from behind as they were riding a motorcycle.Then I walked into the dining room to my left and painted on the side wall was another mural with a stylized... (more)
