Or The Unfashionably Older
MTV broadcasted it’s 2010 Movie Awards. As the red carpet rolled out teens and pop-culture fans from around the world began tuning into to see the pomp, trend, and which artists would be receiving the “Golden Popcorn.”
The allure of fashion was complimented by Sway, Snooki and the “fierce” spikey-haired Christian Siriano who won a fashion design contest on Season 4 of Bravo’s reality show Project Runway. The show has since moved to the Lifetime TV channel. The pre-amble to the red carpet walk was a cross-promotional stunt where Snooki, a star from a an MTV reality show called Jersey Shore, had an MTV-hosted challenge where viewers would decide what dress she would wear for the awards. She then worked the Red Carpet as a correspondent.
Snooki (Nicole Polizzi), who I must confess to having never heard mentioned before, made the claim that she will be hottest on the walk. It is unclear if this was meant seriously, sarcastically, or if sheer bravado may be what it takes for a start to rise above the din these days.
SiressB Who is snookie and why is she on my TV with her dress painted on?

Facebook and Twitter applications will make texting obsolete sooner rather than later. At least that is how I see it. Why text when you can tweet?

Spokentwit, like the name implies, allows Twitter users to speak their tweets. The program opens up Twitter to not only text messages but to voicemail as well. A voice message recorded by a user is given a unique link that is automatically tweeted out by the user. The link leads to a file containing the actual voicemail message.

Bike the Drive, an annual event that occurs in Chicago, took place today in Downtown Chicago.
Bike the Drive started at an early hour of 5 a.m. beginning at Columbus and Jackson, downtown. The event includes a maximum route length of 30 miles.
Twenty thousand people attended the event as cars were kicked off Lake Shore Drive and the participants were able to bike next to the lake to promote exercise and benefit the Active Transportation Alliance, a non-profit biking, walking, and transit advocacy organization.
Bike The Drive was launched by the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation in 2002 in order to raise funds for programs to expand the Chicago area’s bicycle transportation network and promote bicycling as a form of transportation. Chicago is already a very active community and thus the ride looks to extend the communities activeness and encourage others to become more active and rely less on their car as a mode of transportation.
