I'm still mourning A Clean Well Lighted Place for Books. The Computer Literacy bookshops. The Spiderman CG animation on MTV. (it didn't suck. it was just different.) The animated series Downtown on MTV, too. The fact that I never got to watch X23, to decide if I'd like it or not. Next Generation magazine. Mangajin. My favorite neighborhood Thai/Vietnamese restraunt. Hell, the local pizza joint just closed, too.
I'm going to feel no shame in promoting the hell out of the things I love, now that I think about it.
[Edit] Here's one: Bento Xpress! Everybody, go to Bento Xpress! Say "Hi" to Don and Molly! Try the spam sushi. Talk about Hawaii. Read surfing magazines while waiting for your order.
