Samantha's sentence

BY Team Intern in General |

A British woman named Samantha Orobator (pictured) has been charged with drug trafficking and is facing the death penalty in Laos. Orobator, 20, was arrested for carrying half a kilo of heroin back in August in the country. OK, if you're like me and have watched enough of Locked Up Abroad, it's easy to see it's definitely not a pretty thing to be incarcerated in a foreign country. Especially one who believes in 'death by firing squad,' supposedly the ... Read More

Hipster Grifter, Busted

BY Laurie in General |

So apparently the Hipster Grifter aka Kari Ferrell turned herself in to the cops in Philly on Sunday night. I know a lot of people are fascinated with this girl, but really, what is the big deal? She's a cute Asian girl that happens to also be a really good liar. I do like that freewiliamsburg.com made a foldable doll, and promises to make a 'new Williamsburg foldable celebrity' each month. Who will be next? via gawker ... Read More

Learning How I Roll

BY Web Intern in General |

Remember back when one of our lovely interns posted about Bike Chic ? It got me thinking - can everyone on the planet ride a bike but me?I know; it's a little embarrassing. I'm 25 and I can't really bike. Oddly, in a city where a 20-something without a driver's license is fairly common, not being able to ride anything but the stationary in my gym feels shameful.The last time I tried to ride something with two wheels I was about 14. Let's just say it didn't ... Read More
