Does Size Matter? Lincoln Calling, Pt. 8

We live in a culture where "bigger" is always perceived as being "better." Some might argue that this concept is The American Way.

Girl Talk Speaks Volumes

Girl Talk (real name Gregg Gillis) is a phenomenon. Who knew this one-time biomedical engineer would breathe fresh life into the mash-up movement?
