Every week I used to find a cool weblog (sometimes a local St. Louis blog) or some useful, interesting web site from here or there and write up a brief on it for the Sunday Everyday section Tuesday Here and Now section in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (I used to work there as Features Photo Editor). That's about it. Not much action here anymore. More of my stuff can be seen here: keaggy.com.

Officially Over: News of the no-longer hip

This week we peek in on 'Officially Over: News of the no-longer hip,' where you can learn about the hot new thing just as it's becoming the lame old thing. In blogger Nate's own words: "I am a man in my twenties going to school in Saint Louis, Missouri. I've tried keeping up on trends in fashion, the arts, and on the Internet, but I always seem to get wind of something just as the backlash forms... once the next big thing leaves the coasts, it must be on its way out. And I'm in prime demographic and geographic position to hear about things on the way out." Stay out-of-date at officiallyover.bloghorn.com.

The Weird Wide Web is an odd and entertaining place and that's why we love it. We especially love Cockeyed.com, where web celeb Rob Cockerham shares his funny product tests (how much really is inside a can of shaving cream?), his goofy pranks (changing the drive-thru signs at his local McDonalds) and his useful science experiments (yes, toast almost always lands buttered side down). Learn about everything you never needed to know at www.cockeyed.com.
