Seize the Day: New Research Helps Tightwads 'Live a Little'

While many people have no trouble treating themselves to luxury items or relaxing vacations, others have trouble spending on anything they don't perceive is a necessity. Those people are called "hyperopic," because they focus so much on the future they don't see the present. ... In addition to possibly undermining their own happiness, hyperopic consumers constitute a substantial barrier for luxury goods marketers," the authors conclude.

Anyone have access to the whole article? I'd like to read it, but I don't have a way to log in.


Goodbye, Yankee Stadium

"So take the memories from this stadium, add it to the new memories that come with the new Yankee Stadium and continue to pass them on from generation to generation," he said Sunday night.

And with his words echoing throughout the 85-year-old ballpark -- eerily reminiscent of famous goodbyes from the past -- he shut the door and turned off the lights.


*sniff*


How you can help to save some cherished words from oblivion

Dictionary compilers at Collins have decided that the word list for the forthcoming edition of its largest volume is embrangled with words so obscure that they are linguistic recrement. Such words, they say, must be exuviated abstergently to make room for modern additions that will act as a roborant for the book.

Coilhouse Magazine + Blog

COILHOUSE is a love letter to alternative culture, written in an era when alternative culture no longer exists. And because it no longer exists, we take from yesterday and tomorrow, from the mainstream and from the underground, to construct our own version. We cover art, fashion, technology, music and film to create an alternative culture that we would like to live in, as opposed to the one that’s being sold or handed down to us.


Preview of art from Deadpool #3

Um, wow. That's a very well-defined posterior. (Baby got back!)

...Sorry, it had to be said.

P.S. Really, REALLY not a fan of the regular cover of #2. (Whereas am loving McGuinness alternative cover. LOVE.) I...I just don't think he's quite *that* deformed. Say what you will about the cancer and healing factor messing him up, but I've never seen him drawn that hidious except in that ONE GLA Annual (with a guest artist) and in the alternate universe as Dead Man Wade. Also also? No offense to inner beauty and stuff, but I don't believe both Siryn and Copycat could have had such a romantic interest in Deadpool if he looked quite that scary. I mean, Copycat slept with him (multiple times) and everything (see also, Typhoid Mary, although *her* tastes are so questionable that you never know...). So, yeah: OUR Deadpool doesn't look like that. AND I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU SAY TO THE CONTRARY, BECAUSE I AM RIGHT. Who wants to write the crazy fan letter to Clayton Crain?


Past Presidential Debates in History

Fun to watch these clips, if only for the Bentsen-Quayle moment. BURN.


Do you hear what I'm seeing?

Another type of synesthesia; so weird but cool.

Ohh, linkspam! <3

The Coilhouse blog is really interesting as well, I'll have to take a closer look at it later. :)

Also, I'm not going to comment on anyone's butt, not at all.

Well, *I* will! How about:

- Hey sexy, you so fine, you so fine you blow my mind, hey sexy!

or possibly:

- Just shake that booty non-stop, when the beat drops!
