Around the World with the -ists
Bostonist was happy they finally found an Anna Nicole Smith connection to their fair city and that an Apple Store was opening up. They were less happy that new rules have been established limiting underage shows and that their Governor spending a lot of money on drapes.
DCist was full of debates. Like does the blogosphere hate their "American Idol" contestant. Or why the National Air & Space Museum has declined in popularity? Or the selling of a single beer and bad bus drivers.
LAist was all about the cool-- cool gas stations, supporters of the uber-cool Barack Obama, an interview with the sister of the very Sarah Silverman, and the not so cool way the LASD welcomes new recruits.
Londonist was very exciteable this week. They were excited about seeing the movie 300 and the view from the top of the Dome. They were less excited about a windowless apartment going for 400 grand and luke warm over graffiti artist Hugo Martinez.
Parisist was rocked this week with concerts from Les Guillemots, The Decemberists , and Rufus Wainwright, explored what Marie Antoinette wore to the revolution, and checked out a disturbing humans-as-meat demonstration.
Seattlest complained about people complaining about high housing prices and a local politician not knowing anything about NASCAR. They also pretended it was summer in their kitchen and enjoyed a High School basketball match featuring urban kids vs. suburban kids.
Torontoist protected to save themselves so they went to an Al Gore lecture, a Tin Foil Hat party, and mucked up corporate logos. Maybe it was because an old marquee of a historical movie theater collapsed?
