  • Close, but not close enough: a 3.9 earthquake hit Baja California today at 1:50 p.m. Now that we think of it, getting yourself prepared for a major earthquake is a great New Year's resolution!
  • Those rodes are slick, stay safe! This morning's crash on the 5 near the 170 left one dead and three others injured.
  • Who loves the politics of hair? Pam Spaulding at Pandagon writes that Essense Magazine's Top Ten Celeb Hair Moments of 2007 are questionable choices. "Nine out of 10 women selected have processed, straightened hair." Ladies, we'll keep on saying this, but we like the natural curls!
  • Only for the hardcore: Burning Man will no longer sell tickets at the gate, they are going pre-sale only.
  • Jimmy Kimmel to join Leno and Conan: "Though it makes me sick to do so without my writers, there are more than a hundred people whose financial well-being depends on our show. It is time to go back to work. I support my colleagues and friends in the WGA completely and hope this ends both fairly and soon.”
  • What's going on in San Francisco? Oh you know, the Mayor is trying to tax Soda Pop and UC Berkeley kids are doing their own version of UCLA's Undie Run, minus the Undie part (NSFW).
  • "Sorry, but because you are located in the USA you cannot use the search features of the website." TorrentSpy lost its battle against the MPAA in a Los Angeles court today.
