Londonist would just like to take this opportunity to say a big 'hello' to the new newest members of the -ist family: Shanghaiist and Phillyist.

Shanghaiist (bit greedy with the vowels there fellas) are already answering some of the big questions of the day, such as 'could Cliff Clavin from Cheers have been Chinese?' and 'why the hell would anyone want to jump over the Great Wall of China on a skateboard?'.

Philadelphia meanwhile is all about the krumping and...erm, The Beckhams.

We wish them all the best of luck and we urge you to go and have a read right away.

I don't know how I didn't catch it till now, but it's Seattle, not Philly, that is all about the krumping and the Beckhams, as well as the Benjamins. Philly likes, uh, cheese steaks or something.
