best of 2002: the web

Expect lots of updates tonight while I ignore my kids who are probably going to fight to the death at some point this evening. I'll videotape if you want to.

I'll especially be updating this post tonight, which is meant to bring you my favorite new websites (non-blogs) of 2002. If you have any to mention, feel free.

I think I'm giving you guys way too much freedom with my blog. I'm sure I'll pay in the end.

Anyhow.

Best new website of 2002: Gawker

It is a live review of city news, and by news we mean, among other things, urban dating rituals, no-ropes social climbing, Condé Nastiness, downwardly-mobile i-bankers, real estate porn -- the serious stuff.

It reminds me of all the things I take for granted living so close to NYC. I need to get on the LIRR more often.

But what exactly is real estate porn?

On an unrelated note, the Rams fans are cheering first downs here against the Niners. Whilst 17-0 down. At halftime. Far cry from celebrating the Lombardi Trophy isn't it, folks?

I don't know where I'm gonna be able to watch the playoffs in this country, but I'm totally gonna tailgate before the Giants game, even if i have to do it in my own driveway...

Real Estate porn is media showing places you're never going to live

We've recently seen something that doesn't occur very often, namely the invention of a new form of porn. The newest porn is relationship porn, first found in TV shows like "The Bachelor" and the Fox fiasco

I thought Real Estate Porn was playing Monopoly with Hookers.

Oh shit, I jinxed it. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Luckily, we're in the playoffs, otherwise i'd be seriously pissed off. However, from a distant perspective, it is pretty hilarious when you think about it.

Yet another smug fan gets his ass bit. schucks...

Gawker's fun -- lots of little tidbits buried in the daily read.

Woody Allen movies are real estate porn.
