Around The Blogosphere 21 October 2010

AMAZING sidewalk art in 3-D CHALK!

Equally AMAZING XiaXue ::: Becoming evermore like her photoshopped self, has posted an inexplicably chio photo of myself taken at the dentist trying on to put on my Invisalign aligners.

NY Politrix ::: Jimmy McMillan, running for governor as the candidate of the one-man Rent Is Too Damn High Party, stole the show at the debate on Monday night with his repeated and crystal-clear message: The. Rent. Is. Too. Damn. High. The New York Times found out HOW HIGH...

As a man who made a fashion statement with his trademark black gloves, Hannibal Smith undoubtedly would have loved this fellow! (Turn your speakers to low if you're at work, then go to !)

This isn't good, is it? A blogger who is a fake, a fraud and a phoney?

This is worse: If you're a gay Facebook user, you may have noticed that the ads that appear on your page are particularly tailored to your preferences. How private is that?

Kimberlycun ::: Recently, I stumbled upon this BBC documentary on youtube about a phenomenon called folie à deux. It means “madness shared by two” in french and in Malaysia, it probably means “kena rasuk hantu”. Watching the videos truly gave me the creeps.

Orica ::: takes a look at some wild Harajuku Hairstyles!

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
