"...as human beings we are capable of making sense of situations based on the thinnest slice of experience."
Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink and The Tipping Point.
AND THE WINNER IS...: In the contest between pop stars with overinflated egos, a penchant for public temper tantrums, and the occasional freak out, Kanye West has convincingly smacked down Guns N Roses among CD buyers. Meanwhile Taylor Swift -- who by all accounts does not have an overinflated ego, a penchant for temper tantrums or the occasional freak out -- is getting ready for her 19th birthday party. The Thin Slices staff eagerly awaits our invitation.
GIVE A GUY A BREAK: Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy is one of those dudes people work themselves into a frothy hatred over that's completely out of line with reality. Details magazine headlined its feature on him, "Is it time to stop hating Pete Wentz." Yes, we at Thin Slices say: stop hating him.
FLOATER: Trace Adkins joined Varsity Fanclub, Miley Cyrus, David Archuletta, Darius Rucker for Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. Adkins floated through "You're Gonna Miss This" with family in tow. It was just last week that The Blade's Brian Dugger spoke with Adkins about the new disc and "All I Ask For Anymore." (KC)
