From the Kardashians and Tim Tebow to "Planking" and "Mixology" as a valid career path, our LA team came up with the top trends of 2011 that they hope won't survive the new year. Say goodbye to those #winning feathered hair extensions ladies! MORE>>>
Although we like to pretend that New Year's Resolutions are actually positive and hopeful, when you think about it, they really just force you to dwell on what you hate about yourself: your looks, your job, your life. So this New Year's, instead of beating ourselves up over stupid perfectionist resolutions, let's direct our loathing towards the awfulness that surrounds us every day, be it in advertising, pop culture, news, or modern life. ["Besides, introspection is for bitches."-Emily] With that, here are 10 things that reared their ugly heads this year we hope that 2012 will wipe from the face of the Earth, bringing us fresh choices which, while inevitably just as horrid, will at least be mercifully different.

Watch The Throne, the collaborative audio-brain child from Jay-Z and Kanye West just smashed through iTunes on Tuesday and has been blasting through iPods and speakers everywhere ever since. We just reviewed WTT and there has been mass hysteria surrounding the album since it's release. What comes from hysteria? Trends! Could "Throneing" catch on and replace "horsemaning"? More»
via guestofaguest.com: No one is content to let planking take all the glory as this summer's most ridiculous trend. We've seen owling, leisure diving, and now, horsemanning, which involves having one person's face in a picture and another person's body to make it look like they have been decapitated. This sounds sick. MORE>>
No one is content to let planking take all the glory as this summer's most ridiculous trend. We've seen owling, leisure diving, and now, perhaps the best of all, horsemaning, which involves having one person's face in a picture and another person's body to make it look like they have been decapitated. It's actually really funny for as sick as it sounds. More»
via hamptons.guestofaguest: We are over planking, owling, and sloppy tuna-ing. Thank goodness for "leisure diving," the newest addition to this sumer's lineup of silly trends. Brian Thorne, Harvard Business School grad and co-founder of Leisuredive.com stated “Planking and owling lack a coolness factor." Ya it does. And where did it all start? Right here in the Hamptons!

Just add another one to the list. Not only do we have planking, owling, and sloppy tuna-ing, but now "leisure diving" has been added to the lineup. Brian Thorne, Harvard Business School grad and co-founder of Leisuredive.com, explained to the Boston Herald, “Planking and owling lack a coolness factor. The idea, pictures and backgrounds of leisure diving just screams summer fun." Ya it does. And where did it all start? Right here in the Hamptons! [Photo via]
Yesterday morning I woke up and started my day just like I do every other, asked myself what would Kieth Richards wear?, and chose an outfit accordingly. As I sat and drank my coffee while scanning L.A. NOW's tweets to get myself up to speed on the non-news they're hard at work reporting, it hit me like the Barney's bill from Hell, but way worse. This was deeper, bigger than me, a disappointment not in myself, but with the powers that be. Where are those powers, and can I slap them for this?: "Carmageddon: 'Planking' the 405 Freeway". Guys, I'm so concerned for society. This headline, and the accompanying photo above, more than the fact that J.Lo was playing on every station in the L.A. area on Friday afternoon, is the clearest sign the end is near. More»
via la.guestofaguest.com: Carmageddon was so anticlimactic after all the doomsdaying. But some people did take advantage! A group of friends held an impromptu dinner party on the 405 in Sherman Oaks early Sunday morning and they weren't the only ones to come up with a way to make the inconvenience fun. MORE>>>
Carmageddon: so anticlimactic! After all the prognostications of doom, what did you really get out of it? Half a demolished bridge? A whole bunch of hot air from city officials? A few discounted domestic beers? If you're Jesse Glucksman, Matt & Amanda Corrigan, or Barry Neely, at least you got a pretty bitchin' Christmas card photo out of it. More»

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
