Lately, I've been playing Myspace a lot, like, way more than usual. It is addicting; you leave a comment to someone, go take a few breaths or do a cartwheel or something, and the pangs start: did I get a reply? I used minutes of my time, sometimes HOURS, preparing the perfect comment, which I lovingly placed directly below your top 938424 friends! So you dash back breathlessly, the addict, goin ...

A prerequisite to appreciate Sin-e is to suspend any knowledge of and/or respect for Ireland, Irish food, service, or cooking. It is actually possible to accomplish this by spending some time on Pentagon Row. The Arlington shopping center is both a popular stop for tour buses and a hangout for lonely nomads fulfilling 3- to 6-month contracts at the nearby Pentagon, making the Row a disturbing ...

Somewhere in the core of Washington lies the Atlas District. Counter to the name, however, you won’t find this short stretch on any map. That is because, in many ways, the Atlas District (situated between the 1200 and 1400 blocks of H Street, in Northeast D.C.) is a new creation. In the first half of the Twentieth Century, H Street NE was a prominent business district and housed the Atlas Theat ... Continue Reading

Passing two shining, pre-pubescent paragons of American boyhood as I skulked through the misty Arlington evening, I overheard the familiar ejaculation of "That's so gay" amidst the gentle throb of the edge city traffic. The innocence of youth became the stupidity of youth in the blink of an eye. Though I was not so sensitive at the time as to butt into their high-pitched chat, I feel that I now ... Continue Reading

Sofi's Crepes is the tiniest of restaurants, tucked between The Charles and what used to be the Everyman Theater. Delightful in every respect, from the minutely-wrapped double sugar cubes that perfectly complement an Earl Grey to chunky iced coffee cubes (a simple and ingenious solution to the summertime woe of watery iced coffees) Sofi's charm lies in the slightest of details, and not just cubic ...

How many times have I lived this scenario: friends want to meet for lunch in downtown Washington. We have a reasonably big group, we’ve got only an hour or so, and we’re craving Malaysian. So we head to…Penang. There are two Malaysian restaurants on M Street NW—in fact, they’re on the same block. The former could never be mistaken for the latter. Penang’s food is a toned-down version of the ... Continue Reading

The new fall season is just around the corner, and the major networks are vying for valuable slices of the viewing public. Back in May, the networks courted advertisers during "Upfront Week," an annual event in which the networks unveil new programs in the hopes of gaining an early financial—not to mention public relations—edge. Below are a few shows that were not highlighted by their respective ... Continue Reading

The solar system just shrunk, did you know that? We only have eight planets now! Apparently, right under our noses, while we ran about like chickens with our heads cut off worrying about terrorists and reality television, some jerks in the International Astronomical Union (IAU) met in Prague and stripped Pluto of planetary status. Well, Pluto still gets a capital P from me, I tell you what, bec ... Continue Reading

Hangovers are nature’s way of saying last night featured more drinking than your body is supposed to handle. I’m no doctor and these conclusions are only those I’ve come to after five years of being of legal drinking age. Here’s a brief rundown of how I deal with one in the morning. A hangover isn't nearly as fun as what precedes it. But there are some ways to prevent one from happening. Yo ... Continue Reading

True confession time: my parents have turned me into a reality TV fanatic. No small feat, considering the fact that they live in Columbia, Missouri, and I’m far too cheap/busy/contrary to spring for cable. Growing up, the television in our house was a constant background hum; so central to daily life that our golden retriever became visibly anxious whenever anyone switched it off. I’m convinced ...
