Busting out the school supplies

Calculator? Check. Notebooks? Check. Backpack? Check. New breasts? Check. Wait...what?!?

Neurontic has a new home

Check it out! www.neurontic.com. Right now it includes greatest hits, but please stay tuned. Further entries will be posted shortly.

Food Matters

Food Politics on Annotate has moved.

Occupied Territory

The soldiers' presence makes me feel that we are moving slowly, perhaps in the wrong direction.

Planet of the Insects

It's termite season in New Orleans. They swarm nightly, waiting for darkness to inflict their gentle terror.

Summer Back Down South

My traveling partner and co-pilot, Shanna, commented that we traveled through all of the seasons, freezing in the mountains of North Carolina, experiencing a pleasant cool in Tennessee, and then heating up for the last jag of a journey without air-conditioning through Mississippi and Louisiana.

Freeze face

If you're happy and you know it, you must have botox.

Voting Woes

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Unfortunately, neither mayoral candidate fits into the latter category for me.

Stay Tuned

Just a quick note to let readers know that Neurontic will be moving to a new home. I plan to "relauch" within the next few weeks. Stay tuned for further details.

Hope to see you there!

Cheap and chic - European jeans and the high-end denim market

As they did with the cheap plastic furniture sold at an Ikea near you, Scandinavians are way ahead of us in their taste for jeans, and are paying far less for them, too.

What Would Ahmadinejad do in a German Brothel?

Europe’s largest brothel caves to Islamic demands…what happened to the 72 virgins in paradise?

Lifestyle brands and the price of cool

One label with street-fashion credibility is pushing its commodity of coolness a new level.

College kids - still the easiest victims

With little money and barely any means to defend themselves, college kids have been the perfect targets for industry harrassment since the beginning of the file-sharing lawsuits. As the RIAA continues its ridiculous war on technology, they're taking another stab at college kids (who probably buy more music than any other demographic.) The RIAA would like to poke around on the private networks of major Universities. So, are schools there to educate, or to be monitored by monopolies and indoctrinate students with a particular, skewed corporate viewpoint? I guess it depends on who you ask.


I think the title says it all. No?
