Today, it's with great pleasure that we bring you…

We're looking for web-savvy interns who have a knack for writing and a passion for sharing creative ideas to join us.
One of the coolest blogs to launch recently is My Parents Were Awesome. It was created by Eliot Glazer who wanted to show photos of parents when they were "super-awesome." As he states, "Before the fanny packs and Andrea Bocelli concerts, your parents (and grandparents) were once free-wheeling, fashion-forward, and super awesome."
So here it is! The design of the highly desirable, exclusive My Modern Metropolis t-shirt created by our multi-talented friend, Arlene Ibanez. The designs are printed on American Apparel t-shirts. Here's a look at them on an actual…
What happens when you take a highly popular old school children's toy and mix it with other pop culture figures? Well, you get something as wacky and weird as Mari Kasurinen's My Little Ponies. For those of us that can remember the early 80's, My Little Pony was a cultural… Continue
I just wanted to say I really enjoy this site. I love the classy feel to it. My Metro gives me a chance to actually have adult interaction with intellegent people, on new ideas and discussing todays topics. So thank you for giving us a chance to enjoy the web in a fun, smart way!
Usually, on this Monday, I list out three to five examples of some of my favorite modern things. Today, I decided to write about one specific photographer, Robert Ascroft. He established himself in the music world by working as an Art Director and Designer and only by shooting assignments himself did he fall in love with photography. What I enjoy most about his work… Continue

So welcome everyone and see you in video! (This clip will stay in our About… Continue

As much as the Met has opened up new and exciting opportunities and ideas, it's also given me a fair amount of stress. Putting yourself out to the public is damn scary, I don't care who you are. So as much as I love conquering that fear, I can't help but struggle with it each and every day.
Here are the particular questions that have haunted me these past few weeks:

I wanted to tell you how I became 1 of 100 ambassadors of OneWebDay, 'cause it's quite hilarious.
