Jan 24th 2007 3:17AM Wow, 'rik, I'm way disappointed. The list didn't exactly blow my mind, but it was solid. Where in the hell did you actually grow up? How about high school? I went to Loyola, so the city wasn't such a stranger...
Jan 23rd 2007 12:29AM The story behind the widget...hrm, quite the investigative journalist.
Jan 14th 2007 3:11AM Hrm...so, did you actively seek out the most run-of-the-mill, cookie cutter, faux resort in Antigua? Somehow, I figured a Gadling writer would have found something more creative, more out of the way, more, I don't know, real, than this...
Jan 3rd 2007 4:27PM How much would it cost to give Sadun the sack?
Dec 19th 2006 6:05PM Ah Erica! I've been disappointed in your posts for the last few days: so generally inane and tedious. But today, you're up to your old tricks. You don't have a clue to write about (who does these days, eh?), so instead you create "humor" piece. Wonderful. So sad, however, that your "sarcasm" notwithstanding, your little post is about as funny as Janet Reno doing an impersonation of Elian Gonzalez crying (wait, actually, that might be funny...in a weird kind of way). Regardless, the next time your funny bone starts to itch, don't scratch it: cut it off. Hey, while you're at it, why doncha do something about those pesky fingers which keep making the mistake of translating the babble in your brain into text.
Okay, that was a little harsh. Look...let's just say I hope Santa brings you a new job for Christmas. Happy Holidays!
Nov 28th 2006 3:42PM Wow. That was terrible. I'm not trying to be malicious, but if you're going to bother and put something with absolutely no value on the blog, you might as well make an effort and give it, I dunno, some adherence to a meter...maybe real rhymes...how about a shred of creativity...and maybe some basic proofreading: "let's us..." I mean, I don't consider myself a grammar and style pedant, but let's give it a real try, eh?
I'm terribly sorry about your tune,
The posting equivalent of a Zune.
If you put it to music and started to croon,
Most people and primates would suddenly swoon.
Get rid of it quick, via balloon,
Sending it sailing off to the Moon.
I beg only this from you as a boon:
Since your verses have pierced me like a harpoon,
Please don't repeat them when I'm in the room.
Now go ahead and kill me for using "room" as my last rhyme.
Oct 26th 2006 3:24AM Gee, Neil, you caught every one of my possible complaints about this article. I'll give the Kobe burger a try, but ignoring Father's Office is criminal while not mentioning Tommy's is akin to traveling to Paris and forgetting to mention the Eiffel Tower...okay, so the analogy isn't perfect.
Regardless, I'm a hundred percent with you on the Raymond Chandler comment, who I've been reading a lot of lately (and I've been traveling a lot through Union Station, which tends to figure prominently in his works). But I have to give you major credit for mentioning The Loved One, which I had entirely forgotten was set in Los Angeles (it was the first Evelyn Waugh I ever read). Bravo on a compelling critique of a solid article.
