Elsewhere in the Ist-A-Verse
DCist is screwed in the event of an oil crisis. Not that we’re not all screwed in the event of an oil crisis, just D.C. is more screwed. Don’t sell your car yet, District resident, a cabbie can kick you to the curb if he doesn’t like your address. Not even Metro can save you now.
Londonist experiences the London of the future through the wonders of 3D modeling, but while the 3D guys are intent on building up, this kid wants to bring it all down. And these Londoners see sounds and hear colors without the assistance of modern pharmaceuticals.
Torontoist has got a guy that’s going for the world karaoke record. Fifty hours straight. Damn. That is stupid. Lots’a smog in the city makes for crazy pictures and a one-day transit strike pisses everyone off.
SFist throws down with the world’s nerdiest fight club this week. Or are these reenacters actually the world’s nerdiest fight club? Have them fight for it! And Google hates America.
Austinist does an interview with Found Magazine’s Davy Rothbart which is available as a podcast/MP3. Clemens returns to the state of Texas and the New York Times is in love with Texas eats.
Miamist has a brand new hurricane season to deal with but luckily this holy (and expensive) grilled cheese sandwich is in town as a shield. There’s also an interview with recent College Football Hall of Fame inductee Bennie Blades.
Phillyist drops a post about an article about a few of their hometown papers. There’s an interview with DJ and film aficionado Jay Schwartz. And it’s World Cup time.
Chicagoist gets all bookish on the Printers Row Fair (once, twice, three times). That’s a lot of books. Mark Cuban wants to buy the Cubbies and no one can agree on this band called Be Your Own Pet.
Seattlest is drowning in festivals both film (Seattle International) and music (Sasquatch). <
