Man, declared Jean-Paul Sartre, is in anguish: the anguish that comes from the freedom to choose. "When a man commits himself to anything, fully realizing that he is not only choosing what he will be, but is thereby at the same time a legislator deciding for the whole of mankind—in such a moment a man cannot escape from the sense of complete and profound responsibility. There are many, indeed, who show no such anxiety. But we affirm that they are merely disguising their anguish or are in flight from it. Certainly, many people think that in what they are doing they commit [...]
An important New York Post trend piece on fake breasts being so out of style that even Hollywood is over them notes that it's not only the possibility of being sent to the hospital because of bursting implants that's making their popularity wane — the many un-implanted women showing off their natural assets on the Internet are helping, too. "We [now] see a healthy balance of tastes, not just an overabundance of augmented breasts," says Internet Nudity Expert Sasha Grey, who apparently is qualified to judge what is a "healthy balance" of physical preferences because of her background as an American Apparel model?

Here is the Lane Bryant ad (for underwear!) (worn by and marketed to plus-sized women!) that was apparently too hot for airing during Dancing With The Stars and American Idol because it showed a lady heading off for a "lunch" while wearing only a trenchcoat, some lingerie, and a pair of shoes. Whether or not this is some big publicity stunt that the plus-sized fashion retailer devised is up for debate. Maybe the standards and practices departments at ABC and Fox are simply anti-nooners in general! But it should be known that the store has put up an irritable blog post about the whole thing that also manages [...]
It's been a while since we've done this on a regular basis, so I understand that we're kind of rusty. And this whole beta-testing thing has come with a number of distractions of its own as we tweak and adjust and confront the issues we need to address before we swing the gates wide open on this sucker.
