FREE Cultural Escape: DanceAfrica Bazaar

This massive outdoor market with over 250 vendors began yesterday, continues today, and will wrap up tomorrow.   I’m not particularly interested in buying any of the wares (divestment folks, its the way of the future), however, culturally speaking, it could almost be  like a trip to Africa.   Since I haven’t

“Boozin’ and Tomfoolery” And Cheap Wowch

Big, galactic high-five to MyOpenBar (which I’m always ready to give) for listing tonight’s sarty (sale-party) of Wowch stuff at I Heart.   I don’t actually care about the clothes, but the Wowch seems to be a legend.  I’m not talking about whatever cultish fame he/she ( I don’t even know!)

The Cheapest Gyms Ever?

Gyms. We’ve lost site of their true purpose.  Locker rooms with Bay Rum, moisturizer, and whatever fancy stuff women use.  Since when does working out demand immediate pampering?  I learned some perspective after a year working out in Nicaragua.  There were 3 types of gyms where I lived.   Gym

“How Much Is that Laser Removal, Again?”

By now everyone, living or dead, knows about our girl Kari the “Hipster Grifter” who parlayed the urban white males offensive fetishization of Asian women into big, big money. When the folks at Vice magazine met her they fell hard for that edgy haircut, childlike eyes and of course the
