Word On The Street: Average Nation

For those of you living under a rock the size of Alaska, the presidential election is five days away.

Halloween Costumes Done Right

This year for Halloween, instead of being a Catholic schoolgirl or throwing on a Lakers jersey to be Kobe Bryant (or Ms. Walk of Shame) again, why not show everyone how culturally aware (read: pseudo-intellectual) you are?

Taking Credit

It’s been relatively easy to bash Whartonites and their ilk over the past several weeks. “Look at those fat cats on Wall Street, with their $60 million severance packages,” everyone from the crazy guy next to the Button to The New York Times has sniffed.

Ego of the Week: Josh Bennett

Street: What’s the soundtrack to your life? Josh Bennett: The current soundtrack to my life is Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool. Socially critical, playful, lyrically complex — it’s essentially everything that I want people to say about my body of work when I’m gone. Street: Who’s the coolest person you’ve ever met? JB: The coolest person I’ve ever met would have to be [The Boondocks cartoonist] Aaron McGruder.

If iPod, Do You Pod?

Technology has fetishized miniaturization as of late — just compare Zach Morris’ shoebox-sized cell phone on Saved by the Bell to Derek Zoolander’s supersupersmall one.

Sex, casually

The other morning, when I woke up unsure of whether I was still drunk or just hungover, I found myself confronted by an important post-coital realization: I had screwed up (pun mildly intended). Before I go any further, understand that this is not that freshman-year-what-frat-house-am-I-in hungover regret.

Christina Thomas prefers to go by Tina. And we'll call her whatever she wants. Because she's kind of a big deal.

Self-proclaimed "hippie cowboy" and all-round quirky dude Andrew Avrin has things to say. Street: What's the soundtrack to your life? Andrew Avrin: This is the most unfair question I have ever been asked.

Ego of the Week

When girlfriend Donnie Johnson was asked to be EOTW last spring, Ruben "Silent H" Henriquez ever-so-nicely hid his disappointment at being overlooked.

Dying Stars

Stars' latest, the six-song Sad Robots EP, immediately feels like a collection of tunes that didn't quite make the cut for the band's excellent 2007 full-length, In Our Bedroom After The War.

Everything you think about the Radian but are afraid to tell your friends who live there

It’s been likened to the Death Star — you know, the fictional space-age abode of a certain Darth Vader — and for obvious reasons.

Ego of the week: Gabe Head

Street: If you could write your own superlative, what would it be? GH: “Tired of being introduced as the guy with the fellacious name.” Street: What was your first reaction when you found out what your superlative was? GH: I got three mentions! Street: In high school you were most likely to…? GH: “Star in a pornographic film.” Street: What do you plan to name your children? GH: Anything but Gabe. Street: Why not just go by Gabriel? GH: Because then I would never be in 34th Street. Street: When did you realize that your name might be the potential source of amusement for others / yourself? GH: My seventh grade teacher gave me the hilarious nickname of “Give ‘em.” Street: Who’s the coolest person you’ve ever met?
