 I thought for sure it was a joke, but it's a true: Avril Lavigne's Song To Be Made Into Movie. Can you imagine being the guy who has to "translate" that three minutes of bilge into a 90-minute movie?

 Blast from the past: Is One Year Old (1996).

 TIME writes about

 Village Voice: A Short Cultural History of Wedding Rings.

 Video: that geek/supermodel ad from GE. (See also: Geek Test.)

 Blogumentary's most recent video post is great again: Jeff Jarvis (Entertainment Weekly creator and Buzzmachine proprietor) on blogs, journalism and democracy.

 Google puzzles.
