Hot Wheels

I want a pink car, dammit!Last year, Nisssa painted one of their compact model cars pink, then toured it around the UK as part of a breast cancer fundraising event. NOt surprisingly, folks begged Nissan to produce the car in pink for reals -- and they did. The 100 units sold out quickly, so they came back with another 150.

Oh, and the cute  video, complete with bicycles, ... Read More

I found myself a little forlorn this past Sunday, with no more episodes of the Sopranos to help ease me through the dreaded depression of those Sunday night, the-weekend's-over-beeyotch blues.  I tuned into HBO's new series, "Flight of the Conchords," figuring it was maybe going to be good since I'd just seen its star, the dorkily sexy Jemaine Clement, in a preview of the film Eagle vs. Shark. I was expecting to be mildly entertained, but instead, I ... Read More
