Londonist is one of thirteen in the worldwide Gothamist network. Once a week, the editors of each site - from SFist to Shanghaiist - compile some of their most interesting posts into a neat digest. Check out what's been going on elsewhere in the ist-a-verse:

  • Torontoist gawked at photos of all the celebrities who made it to this year's Toronto International Film Festival: George Clooney! Megan Fox! Ewan McGregor! Natalie Portman! And co-star of the smash hit White Chicks, Marlon Wayans!
  • Shanghaiist found out that somebody (possibly government related) is sending journalists in China targeted malware ridden emails, though we haven't figured out why yet.

  • Seattlest enjoyed the songs and F-bombs of the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia live show.

  • Bostonist analyzed why LA doesn't like Boston and why Catholics don't like reiki.

  • LAist realized that there's a clear media East Coast bias that's selling LA sports teams short...in favor of...Boston?! Shudder.

  • Gothamist found out that the same fish has been residing in a Queens pet store's fish tank for the past 41 years. Also, his name is Buttkiss.

  • Chicagoist sat down with writer/director Kevin Smith and found he had a lot to say.

  • DCist followed the arrest on bribery charges of the chief of staff of a popular city councilman and all the details still unfolding in the case.

  • Phillyist ran the gamut of funny this week. Very funny: an interview with Christian Finnegan; not funny at all: wrapping a cat in duct tape and leaving it to die.

  • Londonist did a couple of shifts on Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth.

  • SFist saw a PETA protester smack Ronald McDonald in the face with a pie at a kids' event.
