My e-mail accounts look like the inside of my head: organized but overwhelmed, and filled with unimportant stuff that sometimes gets in the way of the stuff that I actually need. I don’t know why I signed up for all these e-mail newsletters from Amazon and Dell and so on, but now I get the damn things every single day and I pretty much ignore them all, even if I feel like I might actually want to buy something from one of those retailers. That’s why I’ve pretty much fallen in love with Unsubscribr, a Web-based tool that allows you to unsubscribe from multiple e-mail newsletters at one time. All you need to do is enter your e-mail account—the service supports Gmail, Google Apps, Mac.com, Yahoo! Mail and AOL Mail—and give the site permission to securely crawl through your e-mail and dig up all the junk mail you put there when you thought Dell might give you a discount or something. (You break my heart, Dell. You break my heart. I thought we were friends, man.) A five-day scan is free, and a one-time payment of $2 unlocks a 30-day scan—more than enough time to drive nearly all the money changers from the temple.
A Peek at Life Is Beautiful 2017
Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return. English rockers Muse will bring their dizzying live show to the streets of Downtown. And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
