Now hit the gym. This is a pretty incredible time-lapse transformation. And quite a collection of boxer shorts.
Best new kitchen accessory: Laser Cheese Cutter.
More cheese, breaking big over Europe — “Take Me To The Clouds Above” by the Mashup Kids. It’s a fromage-y, delicious hybrid of U2’s “With or Without You” and Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know?”

Salon interview with Mark Simpson, who coined the term “metrosexual”, answers questions people have posed to him. He talks about Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Tom Cruise, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. A couple quotes:
“I know this will come as a shock to millions, but gays are not necessarily more stylish than straight men. Exhibit A: the gay fashion “expert” on Queer Eye [Carson Kressley] who dispenses sartorial advice while dressed like the Children Snatcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”
“From a marketing perspective, though, it makes perfect sense to maintain officially that metrosexuals are all straight — after all, advertising is trying to persuade as many men as possible to relax their sphincter muscles, cooing in their ear that there’s nothing gay about being fucked by corporate consumerism. Which, ironically, is true.”
