Elsewhere in the Ist-a-verse

Let's take a look back at a week that raised this Zen koan: if Kevin Federline got into a wrestling ring with a wrestler, who would you root for?
Austinist was in an entertainment state of mind as they covered the dickens out of the Austin Film Festival, depicted all the Big 12 football coaches as South Park characters, and interviewed Jose Gonzalez.
DCist went wonky this week as they discussed affordable housing and their probable new Mayor meeting with New York's Mayor Mike to discuss schools. Oh, and puppies. Cute, adorable puppies.
Londonist was all about sex and violence as they got a visit by Hugh Hefner and LL Cool J pulled a Jim Morrison only to see an internet chat-room fight dissolve into one guy going after another with a pick-axe.
Parisist was all over the Euro Disney "sex-tape" (seriously, check it out), linked to a video of some home-made video of travel trips, and threw themselves into the middle of a big debate on blogging (in French).
Sampaist said hello and had cool footage of a Red Bull formula racer running around Sao Paulo (text in portugese).
SFist thanked the Heavens for providing them with such entertaining political leaders. Their Mayor's 20 year-old girlfriend is got caught drinking, a state Assemblywoman was totally crushing on their Governor, and a fight over police foot patrols turned into a battle royale between the cops and a member of their Board of Supervisors.
Torontoist pondered all things silly this week, like silly Toronto Mayors in history or the U.S. Coast Guard taking live target practice over the Great Lakes and the silliest of sillies- a new Monty Python musical.
