Big Apple Blog Festival – April 10, 2006

Big Apple Blog Festival (BABF)

Welcome to the Big Apple Blog Festival (BABF), a representative roundup of this week’s posts by NYC bloggers.
The Big Apple Blog Festival likes to go on tour, and different blogs host it … if you have a NYC blog or you blog about NYC and would like to host an upcoming BABF, let us know … we’re taking some time off for Easter break, so the next BABF won’t appear until May 1, 2006, when it will be hosted by A Guy In New York …
This week’s Big Apple Blog Festival is hosted by Harleys, Cars, Girls & Guitars.
Some excerpts:

  • Ace of Spades covers Rudi Giuliani’s testimony at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui. This guy should fry.
  • Suitably Flip notes that “Joblessness Falls Again.” He also reports that Rep. Cyntha McKinney’s craziness goes far beyond slapping security guards. She’s a shill for the Scientologists.
  • Shakedown on Page Six! New York Post gossip column wants $220G for protection money. Or else… what? useless! worthless! insipid! has the answer.
  • Third Avenue thinks that conservatives are making far too much of the Islamification of Europe. Did you know that Holland prospects for foreign immigrants with a DVD of topless bathers? For subtle snarkiness, I think that Third Avenue is tops.
  • Oh, my God! Modern Fabulosity and I agree on something. This is the end of the world as we know it. We both agree… Katie Couric is not the answer. We just don’t agree on the question. “Whatever charms Couric had — bubbly personality, wide smile, optimistic charm — have long been excised by her rampaging ego and unfortunate plastic surgery,” sayeth Mr. Fabulous. Shouting Thomas (which is me) has a rather different take on the Couric problem: CBS news has no credibility, and a PC hire won’t help. Does this mean, Mr. Fabulous, that I’m not a homophobe?
