At a press conference today
, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti announced the lease of 160 battery electric vehicles and 128 plug-in hybrids for the city's vehicle fleet. "Today, we take another step toward becoming the most sustainable city in America," the mayor told reporters.

Tumblr is partnering with Print All Over Me
— a website that lets designers add custom prints to a cycling selection of basic clothing silhouettes and collect a portion of the profits — to release its first ever clothing line. The project, in honor of Tumblr's 10th year of involvement with New York Fashion Week, spotlights young designers with large Tumblr followings.

There's plenty of strange stuff slapped onto
sites like Craigslist on a daily basis, but my favorite annual wave of weirdness hits every September. That's when patchouli-scented vagabonds like Katy Perry
and Susan Sarandon
return from Burning Man, the planet's most prominent and freaky utopian experiment / hippie party, and try to find the friends and lovers they made in the heart of Black Rock City. They're living in different cities; they might be living under different names. All they have to work with are a few substance-addled memories and the insane connective powers of the internet.
Of course, not everyone has the opportunity to go to Burning Man. They can read about each year's new batch of missed connections just about e...
