As someone who has a habit of complaining about noise and neighborhood nuisances to anyone who is paid to listen (basically 311 if you know NYC), I can understand this neighbor’s frustration with the chaotic happenings at the Marc by Marc Jacobs Accessories store. But if the store is such a problem in the West Village, wouldn’t the neighbors already know what channels to go through? It might just be time to set up a neighborhood watch task force.

For someone who has to read the tabloids every week, yesterday’s People interview with Elin Nordegren was like Tabloid Christmas. We had been holding our breath with suspense for nine months to find out what was going through Elin’s head after she (and the world) found out her now ex-husband Tiger Woods had a secret double life as a man whore. And through the 12-page spread, I laughed and cried and learned a lot about Elin. So after the jump, eight things that surprised us about Elin. Keep reading »
Today, there are some big happenings in Wasilla, Alaska. Or at least big happenings for Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin—and that’s like 10 percent of the city’s population, no?

There’s gonna be a situation up in here. A cow situation.

Producer Sally Ann Salsano began casting her yokels months ago for a show tentatively titled “Party Down South,” and she must have found her trashy Southern belles and meth-addled good ol’ boys because the show has started filming. We’ll totally queue this up in the TiVo, along with “Persian Version,” the tentative title for the Iranian-American spin-off, and “Wicked Summer,” which’ll focus on “blue collar” folks in Boston. In the meantime, cue millions of Southerners irate about being depicted as hicks in five … four … three … [ABC News] Keep reading »
Boots, a pharmacy company in the U.K., has some explaining to do after Andrew Adams received a store loyalty card addressed to: Dr A Suicide Bomber. Boots supposedly has certain words flagged in its system, and it seems that someone wasn’t paying attention well enough to stop the card from being sent. The funny thing is that Adams says he rarely shops at Boots and didn’t apply for the card. Boots has launched a full and detailed investigation into the incident, but I wonder if an acquaintance of Adams works for Boots and sent this as a practical, not funny, joke.
