metro: platform or runway?

*taps mic* Is this thing on? Anyone still out there? Yeah, it’s been a while, but between indulging in birthday shenanigans, and sorta realizing that I’m not as able to recover from birthday shenanigans as I once was, I needed...

video: 7-Eleven LARP

There’s a bit of a paradox in The Swanktuary. We love Mad Men but don’t really watch that many ads, unless it’s by accident. The time we see the most commercials is when watching a new show live–which is very...
