Our Most Popular Stories This Week Covered Social Networks, Parties, Lights and Awesome Free Things.
The first weeks back after holiday breaks always seem to just drag on, don't they? But this week didn't. Maybe it's because Dallas had some good things going on and we had the honor of covering them? Sure, that works.
On that note, let's take a look at our most popular stories of the week,
• Far and away our most popular story of the week? Newcomer Rondo Estrello's glowing, in-depth look into the potential of the New Myspace. It helps, probably, that Myspace itself tweeted out a link to our review, although the irony of Myspace using Twitter to get the word on a story out there to the world isn't lost on us.
• Next weekend, we're throwing our first-ever Hometown Glory affair, a Club Dada-hosted event that brings together some of the region's finest in the worlds of music, fashion and art. To get everyone in the partying mood, our resident DJ at this event, DJ Sober, offered up 43 minutes worth of bangers sure to get anyone's booty shaking.
• One of the biggest talking points in Dallas over the course year or so has been the ever-changing nature of the city's night-time skyline, thanks to a litany of new LED installations covering various downtown buildings. It's no surprise, then, that so many people were curious to read Cory Graves' interviews with the guys behind the Reunion Tower and Omni Hotel animations.
• People like free things. And they like reading about them, too, turns out. Our story passing along the news of the Dallas Museum of Art's landmark decision to make its halls (mostly) free to the public confirms this world-changing insight of which I speak.
• Pretty pictures from a concert featuring pretty people playing pretty music? That's a recipe for success, as we learned this week thanks to Jeremy Hughes' review and photo essay from Tuesday night's How to Dress Well show at The Loft.
And that about does it. Have a good weekend, everyone!
