December Top Movers

I’ll admit it: Sometimes I just don’t get the Internet. I had expected December’s Top Ten Mover’s list to feature Brittney’s naughty bits vs. Saddam’s final minutes in a voyeuristic showdown between sex and death. But alas, it was not to be. Other than the obscure, GoBritney.com, which doesn’t even appear to feature any of the infamous "oops" photos, neither Ms. Spears nor Mr. Hussein made much of an impact.

Dieting in 2007

It’s hard to believe we’ve reached the end of another year. It’s ever harder to believe we’ve gained that much weight. If I have any chance of fitting into last year’s swimsuit I need to act fast. So once again it’s time to join millions of fellow fatties as we make the annual New Year’s Resolution to lose the holiday poundage. If this year follows the trends we’ve observed in

November Top Movers

December 25 is just days away. For some that means looking forward to sitting around the Christmas Tree, sharing moments of joy with family. For others it means looking forward to no lines at the movie theaters and lots of Chinese food. And for still others it means looking forward to yet another year of being the creepy guy in the Santa hat at the Cabaret Lounge asking the cocktail

Perez Hilton and Britney Spears

Bloggers have the unique opportunity to present their views without fear of recriminations thanks to the relative anonymity the medium provides. Some use this to their advantage, and watch their popularity skyrocket as their posts become more and more controversial. But there’s where the twist comes in. The more notoriety a blogger attains, the less anonymity they can retain. So they have a choice — tone down their musings and

Daily Dish

Andrew Sullivan is leading a political revolution. A big, conservative, political revolution. A big, conservative, political revolution, possibly with show tunes. His book, The Conservative Soul, has earned both praise and scorn from all sides of the political spectrum, and his little corner of the blogosphere has been attracting the devoted and the curious in ever-increasing numbers, with huge spikes just prior to the election. Perhaps most importantly, he chose

October's Top Movers List

October is behind us and it’s no surprise that Halloween-themed sites had strong representation in the month’s Top Ten Mover list. HauntedHouse.com, CostumeIdeaZone.com, and HalloweenExpress.com all made strong showings before returning to their dark, dank, hibernation for the next 11 months or so. More power to them if they’re able to make it back to the list next year. My guess is one or more of these sites may pass

Moonbats vs. Wingnuts Part 2

Here we are, Election Day, and it’s all just about over except for the shouting. Trouble is, I think there’s going to be plenty of shouting come tomorrow. We might not know the outcome of some of these races until well into the wee hours of Wednesday, and both the Wingnut and Moonbat contingents will doubtless be hollering if their side comes up on the short end of the stick.

Senate Races

The mid-term elections on November 7th represent the first serious threat to Republican control of Congress since the GOP was swept into power in 1994. Conventional wisdom says that even if the Democrats are able to gain the 15 House seats needed for majority control, picking up the necessary 7 seats in the Senate would be a long shot at best. We thought it would be fun to take a

Moonbats vs. Wingnuts, Part 1

Political blogs are serving an increasingly more influential role in our democracy. They act as both barometer and incubator of political thought, disseminating information about the mood of the electorate while simultaneously initiating ideas and calls-to-action that influence that mood. And while a discussion of this ascendant political force probably deserves some level of gravitas, we instead choose sensationalism. We give you then, our analysis of: Moonbats vs. Wingnuts: What

Digg.com Being Dugg??

There’s rumors on the Internets that social newssite Digg.com might be the latest high-profile acquisition target. A report on TechCrunch says that media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. has been talking to Digg about a possible purchase, but that the expected asking price of $150 Million was a bit too steep. Why the interest in Digg? Digg’s commitment to "user-powered content" is interesting enough, but would it be worth the
