This came out last year, but we just had to tell you how excited we are about War on Terror: The BoardGame. According to the game's website, for 47 bucks, you get to:
"Send secret messages; fund terrorism; make deals; renege on deals; wage war; expand your empire; forge secret alliances; fund regime changes; kidnap politicians; be the terrorists."
In 8: A Memoir, Amy Fusselman’s followup to her excellent first memoir The Pharmacist’s Mate, time, rather than moving in a linear fashion, takes the form of the figure eights the author used to skate when she was a kid. Events, for her, don’t just come and go. Instead, everything from Fusselman's experience in the backseat of a cab to the sexual abuse she suffered in her youth at the hands of her babysitter’s husband stays around, affects her in the present.
I’m a huge fan of food and nutrition studies. Not so much the ones that tell me I should be adding or getting rid of something in my diet so that I might lead a healthier life. I ignore those entirely. But rather those that make me feel better about doing things I already do.

century music’s legends.
Congrats Mary Cheney on your new baby boy! One piece of advice for you: Remember to keep him away from Grandpa Dick. It’s not that we’re concerned he won’t love the little guy as much as his other six grandkids, we’re just worried that he’ll eat him.
When it’s hot in Cannes,
France, it’s sticky hot.
Even when the sun submerges below the horizon for hibernation, Cannes
still got hotter when the big parties started last night. In these identical
tents with name-tags designated to different countries, small parties form
along the beach every night, and it’s not exactly all the rage, but festivities
are festivities—the spirit of Cannes
engorges with each pounding bass beat on the streets.
Allegedly, anyway. According to porn star and blogger Barbie Cummings in an interview with ABC News, Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper James Randy Moss caught her with booze and prescription pills during what was supposed to be a routine traffic stop (92 in a 70). Cummings, a Knoxville resident who travels to LA here and there to film movie scenes, says she started to panic upon learning from Moss that the charge would prevent her from traveling over state lines.?xml:namespace>
