We've all done it. But I was doing it before Twitter was invented. Not my privates but...you know.  
 
A teary Rep. Anthony Weiner apologized on Monday for having "inappropriate" telephone and email conversations with six women over three years, though he said he did not break any laws and would not step down...The New York lawmaker admitted he posted a photograph of his bulging crotch on Twitter, saying he had lied when he previously characterized the photograph as a prank.
In an effort to introduce the greatest band of all time to yet another new generation, All Together Now joins rock stars and kids on favorites from the Fab Four's rich catalog. It's a fairly sweet selection of Beatles songs -- don't worry, your toddler won't be marching around to "Come Together" or "Ballad of John and Yoko." The disc opens with New York Dolls guitarist Steve Conte, who maintains the gritty spirit of his day-job band on the vocals for "Magical Mystery Tour."  
 
This very unique package also includes a storybook that illustrates the songs -- a great tool for youngsters not quite ready to jam on their Fisher Price guitar or discuss the musical merits of "Yellow Submarine" -- plus poems and Beatles facts that are sure to prompt lots of storytelling from Mom and Dad.
Seattle Times Thumbs-Up the Wii
Posted by jones in the wired 12 years ago
Nintendo's new Wii isn't perfect, but it's clever, cheap, fun — and downright aerobic  
 
Seattle Times personal tech columnist reviews the Wii...her New Best Friend.  
 
"Do you think the novelty of the controller will wear off over time?" I asked. "I don't know," a friend replied, "But can I come over tomorrow night to find out?"
When the Colbert Report's producers contacted Wexler's Capitol Hill office to ask if the Democrat would be interested in appearing, his young staffers went crazy. All fans of the show, they persuaded a somewhat reluctant Wexler to do it.  
 
So he did. Mistake. And Colbert convinced him to say thinks like, "I enjoy cocaine because it's a fun thing to do." and "I enjoy the company of prostitutes for the following reasons because it's a fun thing to do. If you combine the two together, it's probably even more fun."  
 
heh.
Nearly one year after catastrophic hurricanes in the Gulf Coast destroyed schools and devastated neighborhoods, many school libraries are still without some or all of their vital resources, including books, periodicals, and technology.  
 
Through TODAY Turns the Page and Scholastic, you can help get the right books onto the shelves of school libraries and into the hands of students. The money collected will be used to purchase an extensive collection of books at cost that will be sent to school libraries in the Gulf Coast.
in the grand scheme of public art, it seems a surprise that it's taken until now for guerrilla artists to meld the old-school world of grafitti with the all-media ready cellphone craze.  
 
enter grafedia...  
 
imagine being able to hyperlink text far from your computer--imagine having the ability to scratch out words in chalk, or in newspaper ads, or in sharpie and have anyone who happens by be able to "click" for more information. that's the idea behind grafedia.
Color Therapy
Posted by jones in health 13 years ago
Color Healing, Light Therapy and Chromotherapy are all terms used interchangeably with Color Therapy, which is a set of principles used to create harmonious color and color combinations for healing. This form of energy medicine is based on the belief that the human body is composed of energy fields. When the energy is properly distributed and circulating freely, the body is healthy. Imbalances or abnormal amounts of energy are believed to indicate an excess or deficency. Color is energy. The energy vibration of that color is what you need, in the moment, in order to improve and balance your physical and emotional state.  
 
anyone else thinking of a mighty wind?  
At times it’s easy to believe that Johnny Depp exists simply to defy our expectations. Combining a taste for the offbeat with a stunning fearlessness, Depp has made a career out of unpredictability. This series focuses on the wide array of characters that he’s played over the years; from slasher victim to Elvis crooner, amphetamine-fueled journalist to wide-eyed movie director, they’re all part of what we love about Johnny Depp.
