Had my first experience with them last week and if I had even know I was being put INTO the back-scatter device I would have liked to opt out.

travelhighlights: One thing I can’t stand about traveling with others who are not on my schedule, is the insistence, far too often, to wake up in some ungodly hour of the morning to get an early start on the day. The way I figure, if you avoid any places with a long lineup (AS YOU SHOULD!)… That’s a vacation! Sounds relaxing. Sounds like it’s a good way to see half the things...

Allow me to issue some corrections up in this here: 1. Ann Patchett’s title was tongue-in-cheek; Condé Nast killed Gourmet because Condé Nast knows how to spend money and that’s about it. 2.

Mary Pilon: Monopoly in Video →
marypilon: Thanks to everyone who came out last night to Brooklyn for Nerd Nite! I had a great time! Some people requested I post the videos we didn’t have time for. Here goes! At one point, there was a Monopoly game show. The internet tells me it was in the 1980s and not around for very long. Mary’s presentation on the scandalous history of Monopoly was the best of the evening at...
doree: Overheard at Ace Hotel: “Do you know Rex Sorgatz? He’s like, this really annoying, like fameball-y type guy…” The Ace: Let us be your tent.
Hearst needs to “increase expectations” when it comes to digital pricing? They might first consider “increasing expectations” vis a vis content, which has been sliding towards that declined price the last ten years. No, another Tom Chiarella article about what it means to be a man (probably silence, shaving or some permutation thereof) does not count. Look at what GQ is...
