Twelve Habits of the Bad Neighbor

A wise man once said, “You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have, the facts of life.” I think it was George Clooney. He may as well have been talking about neighborhoods, as one of the facts of life is that as much as there are good... Read more »

Ten Signs You're Too Old for Lollapalooza

Concert-going, or more specifically festival concert-going, is a young man’s (or woman’s) game. And alas, I am no longer a young man. Or woman—I’ve checked. I came to this conclusion during last year’s Lollapalooza while walking next to a fellow attendee who was on the phone with his mother, trying in vain to convince her... Read more »

The 8 Ugliest U.S. Presidents

Abraham Lincoln: the Sixteenth President of the United States <br><br>
Sorry Abey Baby, but out of respect for you I gotta be honest- you're not very attractive.

Top 10 Ugliest Rockstars

When I stumbled across this photo it wasn't even a contest anymore. The Irish version of Tom Waits, MacGowan has a handful of memorable songs with The Pogues but the truly unforgettable thing is his "Smile". It's so awful it's actually not amusing, it's just sad, kind of like the Elephantman. A rare example of how loosing all your teeth can actually be a good thing. It takes some kind of self-loather to put a busted mug like that out there for the world to gasp at. So kudos to you sir; the Ugliest Rockstar ever.
It’s easy to point the finger. I don’t actually know any of the people on this list and I’ve never seen them in person but let’s face it.
