The List

The List: What's In and Out for 2009
The New Year is underway, and that means it’s time to clean out the cultural wardrobe. Hank Stuever of the Washington Post offers his annual take on things that are so last year, and others sure to be cool in the next 12 months. This is an abbreviated list; for the full article visit The Washington Post

  • Out: LOLcats

  • Out: Dressing like “Mad Men”

Personally, I think LOL cats should still be "in". The kids and I will occasionally peek at the site and we end up in fits of giggles! You just have to overlook the annoying baby talk that is "LOLspeak" (not evident in photo below, but in most others!).
