Molly, a giraffe born at Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon on
Tuesday is being cared for at the large animal hospital at TuftsUniversity's
Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in North Grafton
because her mother failed to produce milk. Tufts reports that, at three days
old, the newborn weighed 86 pounds and stood more than 5 feet tall. And that
both baby and mom, Mauzy, are “doing quite well.”

We got him to sit still for a few minutes to answer some questions.
Gaming News this week includes a fake disorder some douche bags in Switzerland made up because a little girl played too much PS2 and an informative interview with the producer of looming blockbuster Resident Evil 5. Also, 50 Cent needs to stop creating things immediately.
OMG! New Dharma station discovered at Obama's not-quite-the-State-of-the-Union address. How sweet would it be if Desmond ended up saving the economy?
Getting your song "banned" is easy work if you can get it, and despite the fact that no one can really ban anything anymore, people keep claiming their shit is being kept from other people by still other people in positions of authority. So for instance if you were to put your video on YouTube, it would be great fun if you could find a reason to send out a press release saying it was banned (although of course not from YouTube).
1) Apple iPhone 3G ($199 - $699) -- With 15,000 applications and counting, Apple's latest iPhone is gaining an amazing amount of popularity. The battery life still leaves much to be desired as well as the super breakable (and still not covered under the warranty) LCD screen, but the ability to check email, phone, the weather in multiple cities, use a GPS, and find a restaurant nearby are enough to keep you addicted for hours.
We all know Shaq is on Twitter. But
who could've guessed the strong solidarity he feels with his 150,503 followers?
It’s only Monday, and this

We've just returned from Clarendon Street in the South End, where Boston Ballet is beginning the final run-throughs of George Balanchine's rarely-performed three-act, Jewels, which opens at the Wang next week. We'll have better video coming soon -- um, like without my leg in it -- but to tide you over, here's a few minutes of what they're up to:

Hashanah shofar player from Late Night with Conan O’Brien — last
episode tonight! sniff, sniff — where he was a longtime writer, or as Dave “Tiny Hands” Gordon,

Anyone who suspects that marriage is the most barbaric of all American rituals should continue
reading. But if you’re one of those dips who think it’s acceptable for women to
behave like cliché “bridezilla” twits from the proposal to the honeymoon, then
I suggest you begin writing nasty comments now.
I arrived at the
Hynes Convention Center at 7:45am this morning
– exactly 15 minutes before security guards opened the flood gates for this
year’s Running of the Brides.
If you're a gamer, then you already know how slow the industry can get during the off-season (right now). Exciting releases are few and far between, and it makes me wonder why publishers have to shoot themselves in the foot every year by releasing every good game within a two-month Fall time frame, forcing us to try to play catch-up for the rest of the year.
The Boston Globe reports today that Amtrak
is cutting Acela fares in the Northeast by up to 25 percent. What they neglect
to mention though is that the federally subsidized transcontinental crawler remains
the most overpriced and organizationally offensive way to hop up and down the coastline.
No doubt I’m a
broke complainer who has for years made it a priority to bitch about the cost
of Amtrak; I only use it occasionally to make traveling uncomfortable for businesspeople
who think riders should be on library behavior regardless of whether they’re in
designated quiet cars.
Everyone on You Tube is downloading this woman freaking out at Hong Kong's airport. She allegedly missed her flight to San Francisco from Hong Kong and went into this rambunctious tirade.
According to Inside Edition, the woman only had to wait an extra two hours to board another flight to San Fran!
