blakeley: david: Benjamin Stein: My wife Arin has used the same hair conditioner for about 15 years: Herbal Essences by Clairol, and more specifically, the one with Rose Hips, Vitamin E, and Jojoba. A couple years ago Clairol discontinued the line. They stopped making her favorite conditioner… Sweetest love story about soap I’ve ever read. :) Someone turn this into a commercial...

Yes chiara and lauren, this post is basically just for you ladies. ew, duke. Automatic Duke sucks reblog. Automatic “I am familiar with The Great Gatsby” reblog.
You Just Can't Help Some People
stryker: -__- was the look on my face when my visiting friends ordered General Tso’s Chicken after I schlepped through a hundred slushy curb-ponds last night and nearly ruined my boots in order to get them to one of the city’s best dim sum spots in Chinatown. It was worst than the time my three friend’s ordered Philly cheese steaks at Katz’s (They were headed to Philadelphia the next day). ...

I think the best (non-specific) VYou question I’ve seen yet is: “How do you feel about dubstep?”

On the plus side, my annoying Facebook friend from...
“Perhaps, to time’s unblinking eye, this great crisis isn’t really about financial debt — perhaps that’s just a representation of a deeper set of truths. Perhaps it’s really about the deeper debts we owe to one another, and how failing to honor them has led us to a deeper bankruptcy: an insolvency of character, spirit, ethic, purpose, and above all, wisdom. Hence,...
Here’s an article under the category “Foursquare File”. (*groan*) It’s about the “mayor” of a bar. Not only do they not give the address of the bar - THIS IS BASIC SHIT, FOLKS - but they don’t even provide a link to: The bar’s website Their own profile of the bar Foursquare’s page for the bar Foursquare’s site at all. They do,...
$25 for $50 of food at Tree in the E. Village →
adeandabet: Good Groupon. Tree serves excellent, rustic French food in a tiny perfect date-spot of a restaurant (replete with outdoor heated patio).
I'm listed in Tumblweeds under #more, #spammy,...
ericmortensen: Tumblweeds is kind of a bummer. It kicks sand in the face of the curated and varied meritocracy of the Tumblr universe. The next generation of Tumblrs will all follow the same 50 people instead of gradually finding their own unique core community. As a result, the rich (influential) will get richer and the next generation will all feed from the same trough. Presumably, those who...
Randomly: Last night I had the burden of driving around the city for a bunch of errands, but I lucky enough to have selected an SUV from Zipcar as my vehicle. My biggest problem ended up being snow accumulation on the wipers, as Zipcars tend not to have windshield snow brushes and I don’t own one either. Aside from having to hand-wipe the snow away from the stuck wipers, the vehicle...

youngmanhattanite: nycthe: Adweek cause a stir with their article: “Who and What Is Rachel Sterne? NYC’s new chief digital officer brings accolades, but little experience to job.” The comment section looks like Obliterati with Sklar, Soup, Caroline McCarthy, etc. as her defenders. On the other end of the… BrianVan has an official opinion: It’s actually a really smart hire...
You can email me for the extended feature article-length argument here: I like a lot of the movies nominated for Best Picture this year, but most of them don’t truly advance the medium (and future expectations) the way that “Inception” does. When we’re looking back in 10 years, what movie are we going to want to watch again to be truly moved, stimulated, entertained? Which...
Here’s to posting at least once a day about Roethlisberger being a league-pardoned rapist. Goodell will love having to answer for that
note to self: if a Tumblr user who often reblogs interesting-looking, stupid charts happens to reblog an interesting-looking chart, it is probably a stupid chart.
Translated: “My identity is so strongly defined by consumption and social status among the cognoscenti that I think it’s cute to apologize for not having attended an out-of-the-way bar that sells the same liquor and plays the same music as a lesser-regarded hotel restaurant party in San Francisco.” I needed to archive/remove the photos for space/budget reasons, but I was way out...
