New York City according to various scenes from American Psycho.New York City according to various scenes from American Psycho.

Scouting New York has an awesome article entitled 'Patrick Bateman’s New York: What Happened To The World of American Psycho' in which they investigate the many top NYC spots mentioned in the movie. You'll get a look at some of the locations used in the movie and what they've become today as well as expected difficulty in getting reservations at each place. And no, you will never get a reservation at Dorsia (spoiler alert, it doesn't exist).

A list of ten bizarre candies up for sale at your local dollar store. Gummy Rats anyone?A list of ten bizarre candies up for sale at your local dollar store. Gummy Rats anyone?

I don't know what's so bizarre about this list of delicious treats from Cafe Society. I mean who wouldn't want to eat a marshmallow-fluff-type-substance in a tube with a picture of a gorilla on it? At least the fluff comes out from the top of the tube and not the bottom (not sure if this is the case upon further inspection). Bonus: panda flavor available as well.

Some amazing photos of that pesky volcanic ash for you to gawk at.Some amazing photos of that pesky volcanic ash for you to gawk at.

If you happened to be doing some overseas traveling over the past few days you might have noticed a delay or two (possibly more numerous than that). While this would've made for a really good excuse to justify the lack of recent GLM postings, sadly (or happily - depending how you look at it) it wasn't the case. More on that later.

Photoblog: Sunrise Over Ontario
Sunrise Over Ontario

Slightly grainy shot captured recently whilst engaged in a weekend quick trip over the border. Should also be noted that this photo was taken with my trusty and newly updated iPhone 3GS which takes pretty good photos now that they've added that handy autofocus feature.

Location:

Lake Ontario, Canada

This is quite an endorsement for Canon, with a network giant entrusting the finale of one of its most popular shows to the 5D Mark II (which happens to be the first digital camera to take the Presidential portrait as well).

Yes folks, you might want to think twice the next time you catch a quick snooze on the back row of a commercial airline flight. You may end up in a part of the airport  that you did not quite expect (or a different destination entirely).

Did you know that there have been thirteen complaints of foreign objects in Pepsi cans since 2007? All of which have happened to come from the same manufacturing plant as well. Don't worry, the FDA is on the case and this should all be resolved shortly. Ribbit.

As the final numeral, the number nine holds special rank. It is associated with forgiveness, compassion and success on the positive side as well as arrogance and self-righteousness on the negative, according to numerologists.
