  • Do check out Racked’s list of the Top 38 home stores  in New York—there are some of the usual suspects, but a number of indies with robust e-commerce sites too, for those of you who don’t actually get to live here and enjoy all of this glorious never-Spring weather we’ve been having.  (Racked NY)
  • The Secret Service has its first female director—a move that’s probably got a lot to do with trying to place that prostitution scandal as firmly in the past as possible, but how about we toast it as progress anyway? (Atlantic Wire)
  • Kids. (New York)
  • Here is Buzz Bissinger—the sportswriter who brought us the universe of Friday Night Lights, going on at great—and somewhat unsettling—length in GQ about his strange shopping addiction to Gucci. And here is a smart and troubled response to it. (GQ, XXfactor)
  • Thunderation! It’s a list of old fashioned swear words poised for a comeback.  (Mental Floss)

    Zoinks! Not sure who is the biggest carcrash here……I only had to read two paragraphs of that confessional by Buzz to see he was whacked. And then he kept going on and on, putting more nails in his coffin. Having a drink wiht him, Morgan and Aaron Greene would be dope.

    Thanks for keepin it real, nothing like a glimpse of the gritty underbelly of the human psyche to start one’s day.

    Was all about the guy when he went hardcore on Sandusky but this wasn’t a glimpse this was a gobsmack. And the pics? Too too much for me. And to that I’ll say MotherofGawd to expand the old Swears list.

    “Nothing like a glimpse of the gritty underbelly of the human psyche to start one’s day”. Indeed.

    I am sad for Buzz and his family. It does sound like he’s battling much more than a “simple” (though ginormous) shopping addiction. The kind of behavior he relates comes from pain…until the pain is healed it won’t stop.

    A little scary to think about how much more us “not so rich” folks could spend though, if money were almost no object…

    Also can’t wait to check out those homes…saving that for my mid-afternoon break. 🙂

  4. GREAT HORN SPOON – that list of swears was AWESOME. I am still laughing, and believe you me, I needed a list of swears today.

    Um, “somewhat unsettling”? That poor man…I want to make a joke about “all that money and no taste” but man, that was just a really sad read.

    Any change Bisinger’s piece could be an April Fool’s prank? If not, yikes! There’s a whole lot more going on there than just a shopping addiction.
