Agassi versus Sampras...Great match and fun to see these tennis titans on the court again. But inquiring minds really want to know: What happened to Michael Chang and the Reebok pump?

Team Liontame's 1-800-Hot-Stuff


I have a thing for pudgy, round creatures that wobble, instead of walk, like this adorable Chow Chow  vying for the Best in Show title at Westminster. His real name is Maddox, but his owners registered him as "Liontame's 1-800-Hot-Stuff". Take a look at  his competition here... 

This canine and I would make a stunning duo...just as long as he's trained, obedient and can do some light housework (i.e. fetching stuff, scaring burglars and being cute).  If he falls short on the housework, I'm sure he would make an excellent companion for lazing on a frilly canopy bed and popping bon bons all day.

Knapsack by Fatboy

Such a chic product... Throw a box of Kennedy's fried chicken and some beer in this thing, and you've got a party in the woods.  Red Riding Hood should hope for a picnic carry-all that's this nifty. (Speaking of Red Riding Hood,  I am less than excited about Catherine Hardwicke's rendition of my favorite fairy-tale. Here's a link to the unamazing trailer.)

Cake and Lobster...

Martha Rich, a Philadelphia-based artist, had an opening last month in New York, and to my dismay,  I missed it. Oh drat.  But she does have  an online gallery of her work at a site she named Cake and Lobster.  The site showcases quite a bit of food art (cakes and lobster, natch) and  some really quirky, retro illustrations  that appeal to me. Check it out.

North American English Dialect Map

...based on pronunciation patterns.  Cool project that includes links to video samples of regional accents,  but the design of the actual site could stand some improvements.
