WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Broke Bearcat

Dear Maija, A couple of my bros got a hold of a state-used ID printing machine and are about to make mass money selling fakes to other kids at UC. Would you judge me if I got my Cancun money doing this?  

They're Weird and They're Wonderful

When I look at a wine list or scan the bottles behind a bar, I look for the unfamiliar — and not just unfamiliar. In fact, the weirder the better. So when I’m confronted by a list of Napa cabs and a shelf full of easily recognizable Russian vodkas, I opt instead for a seasonal beer on tap. At least I know it will disappear soon enough.  

Great Scott! (Review)

Worthy of its exclamatory name

Unearthing a new restaurant is always an adventure, so I was excited to find myself exploring Great Scott! this past Sunday following an excursion with the family to Cincinnati’s Museum Center during the final days its Dinosaurs Alive! exhibit.  

Simon Leis Jr., Dusty Rhodes, and the Freedom Center

SIMON LEIS JR.: Yes, you’re reading that right. We’re giving kudos to Sheriff Simon for having the cojones to publicly say what many politicians agree with privately: Local governments could save mounds of money and provide more efficient services if Hamilton County took over some functions that are duplicated by cities and townships.  

Will 'The Big One' Stay Number One?

New ratings device could alter radio market

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 23, 2009
For a long time, 700 WLW has been Cincinnati’s top radio station. The 50,000-watt AM behemoth has been the home of local staples like Bill Cunningham and Jim Scott and enjoyed a huge lead in the radio ratings. But what would happen if “The Big One” was no longer number one? We might find out in December, when a shakeup in radio station rankings could accompany ratings giant Arbitron’s announcement of its fall numbers.  

Rampant Rock

Stuart MacKenzie discusses unreleased album, babes

The fact that Cincinnati, despite its size, feels like a place where everybody knows your name is a really charming quality, but it makes it difficult to interview people.I recently sat down with Stuart MacKenzie from The Lions Rampant in a semi-professional setting (The Comet) to talk about the band's new album.  

Sept. 9-15: Worst Week Ever!

Anyone who has ever been caught by their parents stealing stuff from a store knows how much it sucks when they drag you back in there to apologize and give back the Skittles. U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-South Carolina) knows this type of embarrassment, only he doesn’t have a shiny wrapper and eye-level product placement to excuse his actions.  

Country Club Going Cross Country

Extending its reach while leaving the West End

When I visited Country Club in the West End last week, it was bustling even though no other visitors were in the art gallery. Christian Strike, its owner, was too busy at his computer to talk. His Iconoclast Editions, an ancillary company headquartered in the West End gallery, had just that day issued a new, limited-run print by Shepard Fairey, the New York-based graphic artist who shot to fame with last year’s “Obama Hope” poster.  

Having Talent and Being Competitive

One of the things I like about Facebook is finding old friends I’ve been out of contact with. One of those friends is Donita. We went to elementary and high school together, and we both lived in East Enterprise, Ind. Donita still does. She sent me a Facebook message saying she’s been trying to find me. She’s been holding a plaque that my twin brother and I won from a school talent show. I’m guessing the year is probably 1962.  

Aug. 12-18: Worst Week Ever!

Living in a recession is hard. We at WWE! have already sold a kidney to pay for ramen and Playboy, and we can still only afford to drink Natty Light (in bottles when we feel like classing it up or we have a lady friend over).
