Idea: a chain of popup stores. (I don't know what it even means, but it seems like everything is now either a chain or a popup store.)

faux news

Golly, there are a lot of links today. Kick it:

MEDIA

 MagazinePriceSearch.com. Never ever subscribe to a magazine again without looking here first. The New Yorker for $19.46. Time for $4.67. Spin for $3.36.

 Good Poynter.org convergence map.

 FoxNews tried to shut down AgitProperties.com for their "Faux News" merchandise. I wonder if my Faux News t-shirt (ordered through Disinfo.com) is a collectors item?

 Cyberjournalist's mammoth list of blogs published by journalists.

MUSIC

 Zowie, Pitchfork is going mainstream. Or something like that.

 SFGate: Hip-Hop Intellectuals: A Radical Generation Comes Of Age.

 The video for Foo Fighter's "Low," starring Dave Grohl and Jack Black, is a little extreme. I think it was banned from MTV.

FILM

 Someone translated that Baudrillard interview about The Matrix into English. GreenCine ponders it.

FASHION

 Gothic Lolita is in this week.

WORDS

 Someone has spend a long time cracking the code of the intro page of Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle. The conclusion is amusing.

 Pre-order David Foster Wallace's newest: Everything and More: A Compact History of Infinity, which tells the story of Georg Cantor.

 Guardian essay on irony: The Final Irony. Recommended.

 That funny Onion: Ask Raymond Carver.

 Recommended summer reading from dozens of authors.

INTERNET

 Game: Dr. Strange Blix.

 CityCreator.com. And an elaborate block-building application.

 A syllabus to a class I'd like to take: CTCS 505: New Media and the Consumption Cycle.

 Tom Friedman in the Times asks Is Google God?

 Lame Times story on internet dating.

 A zillion Amazon RSS Feeds.

ART

 Zoom and explore the art of the Renaissance.

ARCHITECTURE

 Frank Lloyd Wright's vision of Baghdad.

FILM

 "I used to hate the Internet. I thought it was just a place where people stole our products. But I see how influential these fans can be when they build a consensus, which is what we seek. I now consider them filmmaking partners."

LOCAL

 The Strib dissects Block E. See also, from a while back, Peter Ritter's City Pages critique.

 The Rake has a decent converging history of Schell's and Grain Belt beer.

 According to Alexa, 40% of CityPages.com's traffic is now through Babelogue.

 Did you hear that Rock Star closed? It has even been nuked from the City Pages database. Great food, horrible location.
