According to his Blackbook Magazine interview, Zev said,

elektro is a new platform for electronic dance music enthusiasts to learn about DJ culture and their favorite artists and producers.

5. Lose weight wasted. Luc Carl, infamous party boy, has written a book titled “The Drunk Diet, How I Lost 40 Pounds... Wasted." [NY Times]

According to the New York Times, Carl's book,

"...chronicles his makeover from an out-of-shape, chain-smoking party animal into, as he immodestly puts it, “the sexiest man in the world.” While there are profanity-laced weight-loss tips and a bookstore-friendly subtitle (“How I Lost 40 Pounds ...Wasted”), the book is not, as the obligatory medical disclaimer states, an actual diet plan."
