1. Since u been Gore

    Well, it’s official: Al Gore is a rock star. Yesterday, our one-and-only officially launched Save Our Selves, a campaign to combat the climate crisis, beginning with seven concerts on seven continents on 7/7/07 with artists ranging from Keane to Korn to our hetero-crush, Kelly. Ms. Clarkson, we’d follow you to the ends of Antarctica. Literally.

    Sunday marks Chinese New Year, and according to ancient astrology, the Year of the Boar produces lovers of nature. All the more reason to avoid shark-fin soup, abalone, and other endangered delicacies during a celebratory meal. Might we suggest Chinese space potato?

  4. Moany mo-mo-moany

    Woe warblers worldwide are vocalizing concerns ranging from deforestation to public transit to mobile-phone ringtones. We too would lift our voices and complain, but we can’t think of anything to rhyme with “apocalypse.”

  5. Horsepower

    When Daniel Radcliffe comes of age and gains access to his Potter of gold, what’ll be among his first purchases? Nope, not a shirt; he “reckons he might buy a Toyota Prius.” Happy trail, horseplaya.
