“Outside” now has the article on line with a new picture of Stephen “in training” for the 2011 race and a video from the photo shoot.

How many of you still have “Friday” stuck in your head? I’m convinced I’ll have it there until I die, but luckily it’s the awesome Colbert-Fallon version, and not the original. Today’s zeitgeist has plenty more on the “Friday” extravaganza, along with some other interesting news, so kick back with a beverage and enjoy!
Greetings, kids, and welcome to another news round-up! The Colbert news has actually been a little on the slow side lately, but there are a few stories floating around out there that deserve our attention. Today I’ve got a couple of items about Anonymous, more from the front in the ice cream wars, and a quick dose of culture from the art world. Here’s your zeitgeist for Sunday, March 13th.
