Because I'm feeling linkspammy today...

Taggers strike Montrose with knitted graffiti

Their movement had started small, with a knitted cover on the door handle of a Montrose boutique, then a cover for the pole of a nearby stop sign at the corner of Dunlavy and Hawthorne. Reaction to the pieces was immediate and positive. The two founders took graffiti names, AKrylik and PolyCotN, and ran with it, forming a crew and calling it Knitta, Please!

Is my town cool or what? *wonders what my griffiti knitter alias should be*

Famous-type person Elijah Wood brutally accosted by that most lethal of coffee shop denizens, the sketchy, pitch-happy "producer"

Then the "producer" dude actually had the nerve to say to Frodo, "So, do you live around here?" Frodo was trapped into explaining that no, he lives in Venice, but his mom was at a hairdresser's up the street. How cute is that?? Not only does he hang out with his MOM while she's getting her hair done but even fetches her coffee!! (Hmmm. Maybe he's gay after all.)

Fox counters the CW with its own new network

Seriously, could they have come up with a potential line-up that sounds less appealing to me? I think not.

Gaucho pants are back?

Really? Really? Are you sure you want to do that? I've still got pictures from the last time they were in style, and I can assure you that's one fashion trend you are gonna regret in five to ten years. Or even six weeks.

And in the Department of Awwwww: Brokeback shirts go for $100,000

"They really are the ruby slippers of our time," said Gregory, 45. A longtime gay activist, Gregory plans to keep the shirts "as they were, on the hanger, entwined. I would never wear them, put them on, or separate them."

Um, wouldn't it more inovative to beat the CW by putting up *better* shows on the network it currently owns? Rather than creating something to compete with itself. Not that it's new format makes any sense anyway.

Leggins too. Worn under short skirts. I wa hoping it was a catalog fad, but I've seena few students here at school doing it.

EEps. I don't *want* to relive my HS fashion nightmares!

What is WRONG with people? Did they learn nothing from our fashion faux pas?

I wonder if this means men will be wearing mesh 'shirts' in the summer?

Re: the kitters. How cool is that? I hope you get tagged next time you're in the area!

Re: gaucho pants. I don't get it. I really don't.

Re: Brokeback shirts. Dude, SOB. *sobs loudly*

Can't wait to see you this weekend!

More evidence that the Very, Very Gay Twin and I really are leading parallel lives: weird project-whoring stalkers ("I've randomly knocked on your door to see if you'd like to force your students into a pen-pal program with prisoners!" "How 'bout if I give you someone else's number?"), spilling caffeinated drinks all over business establishments...really, the only difference is that he's shorter, wealthier, cuter, and gets to drink coffee. Oh, and is possibly gay. ;)

They really should get Johnny Weir and Tim Gunn on the case re: gauchos. That's a throwback that needs to be killed, buried deep, and salted immediately. Perhaps that could be the CW's next reality show, especially if they don't pick up the TWoP-suggested "Bitch, *Please*!" in which Johnny Weir and Svetlana Khorkina live in an apartment together and poke Dick Button until he joins them in saying mean things.
