THE BEST OF THE
Over the last 12 months, The Black Table has published 365 stories
-- one for each day -- and here are our 10 favorites. Individual stories
that were great, yet overlooked, or popular stories that deserve to be
WEEK IN CRAIG ARCHIVE.
Since our third week, we've been recapping the weekly goings-on in
the world of Craiglist, using the popular message board-cum-classifieds
site as fodder for cultural commentary from Amy Blair and, initially,
DO IDIOTIC THINGS.
The Black Table's burning desire to find out how things work has led to
a series of "how to" columns. In these, we've learned how to
make a blender into a lamp, create a trucker hat from crap and also make
pruno, a nasty prison wine.
ROCKS AND ASSORTED
In his series of Rock and a Hard place interviews, A.J. Daulerio tortures
other reporters with impossible lines of questioning. The results are
both hilarious and revealing, as media folks drop their guard just enough
to let us sucker punch them.
THESE TEN SONGS
WILL MAKE YOU...
Go crazy, get horny or drink beer. Molly Simms dives into her vast music
collection to bring you a regular run of 10 songs that suit certain occasions,
like weddings or, well, getting it on.
LADIES LOVE TO TALK.
We worship at the alter of female persepective, daring women to discuss
unladylike topics like hard alcohol, death and boobs. And once we stop
giggling like little kids, we'll tell you what great insights we've learned
over the last 12 months.
THE YEAR, RUN
Every week, Aileen Gallagher looks back at the news that was and tells
you what you should have read about. In the process, she also tells you
how you should feel, but hey, that's the good old liberal media bias at
LIFE AS A LOSER EXPERIENCE.
For four years, give or take, Will Leitch has chronicled his hellish existence
on Earth in the Life As A Loser column. Here you can find all of the columns
he's done, some of which can be found in a book published on Arriviste
DOZEN BEERS REVIEWED.
With so many beers on the market, deciding what to drink is rapidly becoming
a problem. The Black Table lab opened its doors to review the best and
worst of lagers, ales and nasty malt beverages, while getting incredibly
drunk in the process.
BIG LIST OF BLACK LISTS.
Over the summer of 2003, The Black Table launched a new initiative, asking
readers to submit little reviews of damn near everything. Once a week,
they dissected the banal and skewered the stupid, doling grades out to
all things high and low.
