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.)

how was the party?

Has anyone ever heard statistics on people who sleep less living longer? Or not living longer? I'd really like to know what I'm doing to myself in the long run. Okay, let's kick it:

FILM

 EW's Kill Bill cover story this week contains a parenthetical quote from Tarantino about Memento: "Good movie! But there's a hole, okay? And it's this! How, okay, does he remember... his own fuckin' condition?" This is why Tarantino still matters.

 Landmark Theaters has a new owner.

 A 2000-copy limited edition of the soundtrack to Lost in Translation packaged with a 48-page book of photos taken by Sofia is supposed to come out soon.

FASHION

 Alright girls, no more wearing my jeans. (That sounds frivolous, but it has been a problem in the past. Lori, I want my pants back.)

HISTORY

 100 Documents That Shaped America. I guess that's vaguely interesting, but frankly I'm more intrigued by the big "sponsored by HP" logo and "HP + Starbucks" ads.

WORDS

 [Insert joke here.] Danielle Steel to open art gallery for lesser-knowns.

MUSIC

 I guess this is the White Stripes blogging.

 Moby: "i'm almost tempted to go onto kazaa and download some of my own music, just to see if the riaa would sue me for having mp3's of my own songs on my hard-drive."

 The estate of photographer/videographer Guy Bourdin is suing Madonna for ripping off his visual ideas. There's a side-by-side comparison. Here's a fan site talking about the homage.

 The Voice reviews Chuck. I kinda like this line: "As someone who's shared a few drinks with Chuck at informal rock-critic gatherings (real hoo-has, those), I can tell you this is exactly how he holds court and conversation. He's great fun, but obdurate and occasionally too noisy." Dude, the secret is to scream louder than him.

TECH

 Bruce Sterling: Ten Technologies That Deserve to Die.

 Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 Demos.

 The Dean Campaign has released a starter kit for building your own community sites.

LOCAL

 Well, that's interesting. A Minneapolis Hidden Beach Bare @ss Yahoo Group.

 Peter on the M-80 project. I'll see you at the party.

 Ventura's MSNBC show finally debuts this weekend.
