GREENPOINT—Since March 4, the cult of cute known as Fred Flare has kept a sign with rotating messages in its window as part of the "Your Message Here" project. Leave a comment on their blog, and if they like it, they'll put it on the sign for a day. Those with something to anonymously declare to all of Greenpoint can post it here, but be warned: The comments section is currently so long that you'll almost definitely get sick of scrolling before you reach the end.

TWITTER—Marc Jacobs knows how to spell his new fiancé's home country, and you better not forget it. From the designer's Twitter: "I am amazed that some of you are asking who Brasil is, Brasil is re CORRECT way to spell Brazil! WHO IS COMING TONIGHT?!" We feel chastised, and we're not even sure why.
