  • If your goal in life was to see Stewie from The Family Guy do the running man, then you can now die in peace.

  • Blake Bailey, who has been writing weekly dispatches to Slate on his exile from Katrina, lost his home but was reunited with his cat.

  • I'm so heatbroken that Jessica Coen is not an admirer of this blog. My work area has become a miniature 9th Ward, filled with my tears of torment and drool of discontent. Why won't Jess love me?

  • Chris Rock's middle teacher didn't care about black people. She does now after watching Everybody Hates Chris.

  • Today at Neighborhoodies: Broken Social Scene - 7/4 (Shoreline)

  • 20 pay-per-shit toilets in NYC? About time and not nearly enough, I say. I actually have a history with these pay-per-poopers, having been trapped in one when I was 9. Quite traumatic, but I got over it.

  • One half of one of spinachdip's favorite blogs, Cole Slaw Blog, is in Scotland and has amusing anecdotes. Also, it appears the other half is headed to Hilton Head, SC but afraid to admit it. Perfectly understandable.

  • Moss's loss is Sienna's gain, maybe. Also, Many Faces of Sienna (via c-rags)

  • That's it for the week. Zip it up, zip it out!
