Hey, NY Times, 2006 is calling. They want their narrative back.

I can’t do food blogging this week—it’s been insanely busy, and I just didn’t have time. I don’t really have time now to blog, because I’m going to the WAM! conference in New York, but I thought I’d tell you a little story about the history of blogging, which is…

The coming Manhattan refuge crisis

Sorry for the radio silence. Yesterday, Marc and I awoke at 4AM in Dallas in order to catch a 7AM flight to New York that had a layover in Cincinnati. We feverishly checked to make sure our connection wasn’t canceled, but after we got to the airport—and after I discovered…

Friday Genius Ten “Great Gig in The Sky” Edition

There are a couple things in this world I didn’t think would happen to me after I moved from Texas to New York. One of them was definitely not, “Be standing outside like a dumbass when a fucking tornado rips right through.” And yet, there I was in Park Slope—one…

A controversy looking for a target

I’m a relatively recent transplant to New York City, as you probably know, but I have to say that this entire fuss over the Cordoba House has left me pretty annoyed. One the things you figure out quickly from living in New York is that people from all sorts of…

Bamboo Review: Inception

Spoilers! We don’t go to the movies as often in New York as we did in Austin for one simple reason: There isn’t an Alamo Drafthouse here. It’s strange, because I think one would go over really well. But like competent country-western bands playing in bars or nachos that are…

She, for instance, suggested that Barack Obama was basically a rapist because he campaigned against Hillary Clinton. Not an authority, but sadly, treated like one in the press, because she heads up…

Sluts will conquer the universe

Roy makes fun of a bunch of wingnuts who took the bait offered by the New York Post. The article was one of those faux trend pieces claiming women in New York have discovered celibacy, and the official wingnut stance was, “Good idea; too bad it’s too late for you…

Friday Genius Ten “Yes New York” Edition

Sorry about the lack of blogging. The reason I was traveling is a big one, though: Marc and I have made the decision to move to New York City, specifically Brooklyn. We’ve been considering a move for a long time, because as much as we love Texas, we’ve both lived…

Dude, there’s sex in other cities, you know

Okay, I’ve run out of patience. What’s it going to take? I’m young and single and write a blog. True, it’s not the Gawker, but still pretty popular and lively. I don’t live in New York, but I still live in a pretty trendy city stock full of creative types.…
