A young, married couple have taken their lives -- and their office -- on the move. Using laptops, iPhones and wireless cards, they do freelance web design gigs from their RV as they travel the country. Webmonkey's Adam DuVander caught up with the threesome and their "Tumblewagon" in this exclusive Q&A. Read more...
Zoe is an extraordinary bellydancer, so captivating even the women in the crowd go completely wild. Her style is uniquely snakey and darkly dramatic. I'd LOVE to see one of her shows:

I remember being 13 when I first fell in love with this song, hearing it for the first time at Frank B Ernest, my Dad's old clothing shop. It pops back into my mind for unexpected visits every few months or so. And who could forget Harvest For The World (1988). Such a happy feel good song the message was lost on me back then.
This is my second favourite SNL spoof of all time! I would have inbedded it with youTube but they keep taking the full-length clips down. Watch it on the SNL site before it goes!!
Couric / Palin Open - Gov. Palin and Katie Couric get real and adorable
Although I haven't lived here long I can only imagine the topic of the televised Vice-Presidential debate would cause most Americans to yawn, but I have a feeling tonight's might break all records by having the same viewer ratings as Obama and McCains. It seems far more people are curious how she will handle the debate and much less interested in Biden or the actual information passed around in the debate. This may seem like a lot of pressure for her but actually is set in her favour. Additionally the bar has been set so hilariously low by recent media ridicule of her gaffes she can only amaze and surprise voters tonight, and I'm pretty sure she will. Another hidden but huge bonus in her favour.
Biden on the other hand who has years of heavy-duty experience behind him will need to carefully watch he doesn't come across as condescending -- particularly because the media are just waiting to accuse anyone of sexism towards her -- hoping rather she just naturally shows herself up. The public don't like know-it-alls (unless they are hilariously gay, oh man wouldn't that be a great debate! Hopefully in my time). This is going to be an extremely tough balancing act for Biden and will require a LOT of self-control if he follows the rules. There is so much he could say in this debate that I have a feeling he will hold back on to avoid being hated. I am hoping his personality will shine through. I hope he will get caught in the moment! I could learn a lot from his experience. I want to know more about how his mind works and I happen to like know-it-alls!
