By Annie Churdar in New Trends on Saturday 23 November 2013

I’ve always identified with my poor, overwhelmed computer when certain symptoms let me know it needs a restart. I know I need to empty the garbage, restart, and clear the PRAM.

Annie Churdar Contributor

By Annie Churdar in Video on Friday 22 November 2013

I think Ice Cube has a bit of an identity crisis on his hands. This video makes it pretty obvious. This is a sort of music video, a really weird music video. Between the gangster rap lyrics and family-friendly video clips, Ice Cube can’t decide if he’s a bad boy or a family man. What […]

The cat that currently lives with my parents could use a little exercise. The poor thing has looked pregnant for the past seven years. Her belly literally drags on the ground and the diet kitty food hasn’t been working. To say she’s ‘over-weight’ is a sad understatement. I think I’ll propose this cat exercise wheel […]
