MEATHEADS ARE PEOPLE TOO


(Amateur Female Jello Wrestling)

I talk too much. Let's focus on fun things coming up:

:::

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?

Stories about travel and far-away places. New Yorkers go all over the world but the city has a way of swallowing their homecomings. Orbit the earth and your friends just ask if you missed the pizza.

This homespun live talk show offers a chance for travelers to tell stories, to bring the world home and share it with the rest of us — travelers as well as those of us who don’t get out much.

Good kid Pauley hopped trains across Mexico, Anastasia Andino ended up with her own monkey in Thailand, and Omer Shah came out at home and ended up on Haj in Mecca. Interviews by Jeff Stark. Gorgeous slideshows tightly edited and mercifully short.

MP3:

This song is almost equally as annoying as it is good. Walk the fine line.

A band's place in myspace.

  4. And I don't think I've had anything in the New Yorker. Although with the way things have been going lately I might just not know about it.

    (But no, I don't think so. Would be nice though)
