– Lindsay’s “highdeas” series is brilliant… “if you’re new here, I used to do this thing all the time where I’d put up Highdeas. Highdeas are ideas that you come up with when you’re stoned, or that sound like the person who came up with them was stoned.” and of course, it’s right up our alley. so it was very cool to see our submission (thought up by our friend Jason) show up… “the bacon bikini. You make a bikini out of strips of bacon, your girlfriend lies out in the sun and later you have a tasty snack.”

- saw on the Gothamist that nominations for the Bloggy Awards are open from now until Monday. it looks like a cool way to give a shout out to your favorite blogs, and ones that work overtime to bring us great content (like the Gothamist!) and hey, if ya like this site and feel compelled you can throw in a word for us :-)

A Test of Will captures first hand the holiday bag insanity at NYC’s La Guardia Airport, and pretty much nails in his comments the reason we’re all about the carry-on! (photo below is from his site)


- spotted on Nick’s cool CatchDubs… “SWAPATORIUM: A Journey Through Junkland – Flea Markets, Thrift Stores, Antique Shops, Garage & Estate Sales, Collecting, Odd Finds, Swaps” and we knew it was love at first site. got even better when we clicked around and found this post… “Several years ago, I purchased a large set of female mug shots from the 1940s. These are a few examples.”

- You Can’t Make It Up cracked us up with this rant on an NYT article about a snotty, spoiled chick and her apartment (we also like the random “Charles Nelson Reilly Says” posts speckling the site.)

- found this on Lusty Lady one of our fave sites… Manolo’s Shoe Blog is super fabulous, and these “Boots for the Super Fantastic Tough Girl” kick ass!

- a funny holiday story and comments from Peace Dividend… “I think if you purchase, for your 2-year-old son, a gun that makes burping sounds when you shoot it, you pretty much deserve what you get.”

- Rion‘s photos of New Years Eve in Times Square are incredible. rich and vibrant, they take you right into the heart of it all and the energy of the moment. the confetti shots are simply MAGICAL!

- and last but not least, Brooklyn Vegan is our favorite blog covering the NY MUSIC SCENE these dayz! this guy is hitting some of the best shows in NYC and posting on them the very next day! the writing is down to earth, real and informative, photos are raw and beautiful and the depth of coverage is fucking prolific. (and scroll through the archives and check out his best of 2004 compilations and lists)

The Power of Compassion

The Power of Compassion
like you, in the wake of the unbelievable devastation and death left behind by the tsunami, we’ve been overwhelmed with feelings of deep sadness alternated with intense helplessness. and we’ve been searching for ways to ease the confusion and pain that’s consuming our heart and thoughts (donating money, reading others thoughts, getting angry at Bush’s horrendous response.)

yesterday we caught the title of a book we’d been meaning to start by the bedside – The Power of Compassion (a lecture by The Dalai Lama) – and that line struck us with a moment of empowerment that we’ve found ourselves turning to over and over.

there’s no way to make sense of this incredible tragedy and the magnitude of what needs to be done right now. but the Power of Compassion lies within all of us and is a moving universal force that has the capacity to rise up and bring hope to this mess. and we find a small bit empowerment in knowing that we can be part of that force.
