Apparently, 50 Cent and his movie campaign have stymied the efforts of The Bubble Project, a grassroots effort which placed 15,000 stickers on ads around New York City allowing people to add commentary to ads The Bubble Project says are over running public space. Flicker user and College Humor partner Jackob Lodwick who notes the sticker on the movie poster has been blank for two days and wonders if people are simply too scared of 50 Cent to make a comment.
Recently, several posters for the 50 Cent movie "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" caused complaints for their glorification of violence and were taken down by the movie's studio, Paramount.

There's a "Stop the Plucker" test in which the amount of eyebrow plucking determines ones level of Metrosexual-ness. And there's a "Guy-cologist" area in which a hottie nurse offers a host of exams. Even if the site was launched this past summer, wasn't the whole metrosexual thing over like a year ago?
The Bitchless blog has pointed out that, leveraging its Queens, NY location to reach the gay audience, Vespa Queens has placed an ad in gay newspaper New York Blade. This really isn't news other than the the cute word play between the name of the Vespa dealer, Vespa Queens, and the queens who read New York Blade.
