Labor Day? PUH. We’re taking a Labor WEEK

These stock photo people are explaining that if you shopped more on our site, it would stay on line.

We’re taking a little break to rethink our business model. Operating an ad-free site that relies on visitors doing some shopping on occasion hasn’t proven to be as wealth-creating as we hoped, so we’re taking a little break through Labor Day (which we touched on recently), when we’ll return with popups, popunders, and annoying exit nag screens to see if we can’t find better ways to pay the hosting bills. We jest of course; if we can’t keep the site profitable without a) resorting to vapid viral linkbait b) tons of ads, and c) generally selling our soul, we’ll just find something better to do.

In the meantime, let us help you catch up on what you might have missed recently. You can also just browse posts by date, or by category. Or dive right into the terror of our shop with no article content to guide you. Have a great holiday week!
