Cuffing Season is Upon Us

The autumnal season brings all sorts of familiar and favorable things to mind. The changing colors of tree leaves. Pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. Christmas music being played in department stores. Monday Night Football. And another sport altogether… Cuffing Season.

The hot “skin was showing” summer was jumpoff season, with casual hookups as far as the eye could see. But as summer winds down to a close it’s in our very nature to begin preparations for the cold months ahead. The high holidays are meant to be spent with loved ones, or at least a warm body. Join the Internets Celebrities on a field assignment to find out if Cuffing Season is real.

Throwback Thursday: The Baseball Card Movie

As we approach June, Baseball season is well underway. Which means I’m obsessing over stats for my roto league and Dallas is probably plotting his next trip to CitiField even though the Amazin’s season peaked early with the release of the “Meat the Mets” slice at Two Boots.

Back in 2009 IC’s director Casimir Nozkowski went to his neighborhood baseball card store and created this short doc on the wistful nature of the hobby. We learn in the video that 95% of the store’s customers were adults and maybe that’s part of the reason the business has since shut down. But as with old baseball cards, the video now serves as an artifact capturing an era gone by and also turns people playing a kid’s game into some sort of heroes.

 

The Dunk

Today being the 19th anniversary of “The Dunk”, who better than Dontrevius Wenters to drive it hard down Memory Lane.

7-Eleven is coming for those Bodega Dollars

Our old pal Willy Staley wrote an article for New York magazine about 7-Eleven’s upcoming NYC takeover. I remember 20 years ago when there were no 7-Elevens in Manhattan. They’re popping up everywhere these days giving bodega owners reason to worry.

7-­Eleven is betting that time-starved New Yorkers will come to appreciate the convenience of its more-than-just-­sandwiches spread of fresh food, which has, to 7-Eleven’s credit, expanded considerably from its stoner-pleasing roots. While the company is still talented at making food cylindrical in a way God never intended, and Buffalo-ing things that the Lord might never think to Buffalo, it has also introduced fruit and yogurt cups, salads, and other healthier items.

my living connection to happier days

I did all my email work in that one “legacy” tab, marveling at how much I preferred it to the new-look Gmail that was the only option in any newly opened tab. I carefully “slept” the machine at night rather than shutting it down. I cancelled any software update that required a system reboot. I worried about what would happen if I unthinkingly closed the tab. It was my living connection to happier days.

- James Fallows on resisting the new Gmail for as long as possible, via rc3.

As a guy who rode the old Google Reader until the wheels fell off I can definitely relate to Fallows. On the other hand, as we try to bring a better product with both a website redesign and a new addition to the team, for sanity sake you have to recognize you can’t please everyone and not every opinion is worth weighing. What gets criticized on launch may end up sorely missed by the time the next redesign comes.

The new Gmail is butt though.

Tasha takes the Ghetto Big Mac Test

You might remember Tasha as the young woman who told us she fucks with naps when we randomly interviewed her for Vend Diagram.

It took us a couple of years to have the good idea of bringing her into the fold for more of that magic. But as Dallas says we’re never late – because whenever we show up we’re always on time.
