Fabio at Conde Nast

Fabio made an appearance today at Conde Nast and wowed the staff with his buffness, his manly locks and his friendly charm. He patiently took a seat while staffers one by one asked for an autograph. No wonder every housewife in America wants to do him. He even posed with a Wrassler for our upcoming show:

There’s a new bar in Williamsburg featuring tons of classic arcade games like Moon Patrol, Centipede, Frogger, and Donkey Kong,and Zaxxon.
(from tangentialism):
i don’t normally like big warehousey bars in williamsburg, especially when they’re right around the corner from where i live, but at first glance, i kind of like barcade. it’s super super “hipster”, but then again, there’s twelve arcade cabinets lined up against the wall. plus there’s lots of different beers, if that’s what you look for in a bar. i figure this place will do pretty well in the long run. this crowd seemed a little on the slim side for a saturday night, but i don’t think word’s gotten out yet

Tips For Getting Over The Bush Reelection

by Dan Kilian
1. Be white, straight and rich.
2. Adopt a state: Expatriate with others Democrats in mass to red states until the next election is over.
3. Have sex with your gay life partner. In public.
4. Turn up your arrogance when dealing with hicks from the sticks. When tourists ask for directions around your coastal city, say “Turn left at the 100,000 dead people in Iraq, and go directly to hell.” If they claim to have voted for Kerry, tell them to go to hell anyway. America isn’t about being fair anymore.
