The Atlantic: The Next Slum? →
by Christopher B. Leinberger “As conventional suburban lifestyles fall out of fashion and walkable urban alternatives proliferate, what will happen to obsolete large-lot houses? One might imagine culs-de-sac being converted to faux Main Streets, or McMansion developments being bulldozed and reforested or turned into parks. But these sorts of transformations are likely to be rare. Suburbia’s...

Why won't you let me hook up with a guy who's awful!?
But keep it on the DL, I don't want those intrepid Weekly reporters making a big deal out of it. It'd be a tragedy if they published some silly idle rumors... again.
You call it prancing around Boystown, I call it appropriating-via-mocking an underground fad. Now all of Roscoe's staff wears that!
This is my friend, he's not in Medill, but he'll end up getting the job you want.
1. You're faking it, 2. you're a Taoist sex god that can control your semen or 3. you have a problem.
What if, like, they make us out to be a cautionary tale?
If they do that shit, we'll write a letter to the editor telling them why we're cooler, and if it's REALLY bad, I'll get them for defamation.

We're going to a Valentine's Day party thrown by porn stars???
Not porn stars, pornographers. They're not famous.
Is this NSFW?
No, it's just very homoerotic.
Haha ok, that's like my office in general so I think I'm fine.
We were just talking about you and, you know, your boy toys, and we just happened to remember Dean Malec and how awesome and adorable he is. So we think that you should get on that. If we could do an arrange marriage for you, that's who we'd pick.
"Camp is a lie that tells a truth."
"Camp is a biography written by the subject as if it were about another person."
"Camp is having a secret which one ironically wants to conceal and exploit."
I had my first boyfriend when I was five. His name was Hugo, and he lived across the street. We were playmates.
So this one essay, a girl is talking about how commercials use sex appeal. Which already is a little inappropes for an SAT essay. Then she proceeds to use the word titties. Twice. And spells it wrong. She spells a singular titty as "tity". ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Pack up your titties and go to community college, bitch. You have no future.
I changed my mind... I'm coming with you to Madrid.
"Mandy Mandy do you want my man candy? Girl you wanna thug, drinkin' bottles in the club? Come here and take it deep and let me know what you luv!"
The best part about my new Mexican bromance? The kid's name is... Oscar!

I just applied to go back to Madrid for a year starting in September and work at the office of the Instituto where I studied abroad in the fall of 2006. I was looking at some Google maps of Madrid and was bombarded with memories from all over the city. All the Metro stops and all their stories. It would be great to go back there for a year and finish what I started. I’m not really sure why,...

In the tradition of Paris, Je T’aime and New York, I Love You, comes TOKYO! Michel Gondry, Leos Carax and Bong Joon-ho each paint a visionary portrait of arguably one of the world’s most dynamic cities. Unexpected to the point of bizarre, TOKYO!, I can’t wait to watch. Must find a way to get into the special screening in Chicago…
