 I'd really like a subscription to the Japanese magazine Brutus. So I checked Amazon. Wow, it's there. Uh, for $173.73/year. Maybe not.

 This video from Death in Vegas is pretty rad.

 New MIT Mediaworks pamphlet: Writing Machines.

 This is scary as hell. The army is adapting retail video games as military action simulators. "Some military trainers worry that the more the games seem like war, the more war may start to seem like a game." Ender's Game is even quoted as an influence.

 City Pages' War TV Glossary.

 Have fun: CreateBands.com. I think this is how Creed came about.

 Sorta odd for the NY Times Mag is this long cover piece on the Donald Judd / Andy Warhol / Sol Le Witt / Bruce Nauman generation of artists. Includes an audio slideshow.

 Apple releases Final Cut Pro 4.0.
