The side-benefit of dating Jewish girls in this silly city: my Words With Friends gameplay has become much better!

my bitch

I'm so pleased with myself. I made a t-shirt today that reads "REM KOOLHAAS IS MY DELIRIOUS BITCH." Maybe I'll make a bunch to sell online -- perhaps a whole line of them, like "MATTHEW BARNEY MASTERED MY CREAM" and "SPIKE JONZE CAN SUCK MY VIDEO." Ideas welcome.

TV

 K Street is better than you've heard. The Times has an article on how it's affecting political and social dymanics in D.C. And Newsweek has an interview with James Carville.

 This is oddly cool. MTV International played the surrealist game of Exquisite Corpse to create 16 30-second tv spots that are surprisingly unique. Exquisitemtv.com collects them all, with maps that show how each progressed around the globe.

 Emily Nussbaum on tv theme songs.

 AdBusters does some experiments in watching tv.

SHOPPING/TRAVEL

 Soundwalk creates collage CDs of sounds (movies, music, found sound) of neighborhoods to create something like a sonic version of travelguide.

 Flight001 appears to be a store for urban nomads. Compact objects for the digerati jetset.

 Sidewinder is a hand-powered cell phone charger.

FILM

 Drudge says Disney is ticked at Miramax for the violence in Kill Bill, and predicts a possible split.

 Salon interviews Richard Linklater. And Mim Udovitch interviews Tarantino.

MUSIC

 Yeah Yeah Yeahs on NPR's All Things Considered (or, actually, Karen O.'s parents).

 Here in Minneapolis, we got to see a crazy reinacarnation of Tron with a live soundtrack performed by electronic musicians using Game Boys and other digital devices. The genre of 8-bit music isn't totally new, but it seems to be catching some steam. Even MSNBC.com is writing about it (the audio interactive halfway down the page is pretty cool).

WORDS

 Times Review of Books likes the new Stephenson.

ARCHITECTURE

 Slideshow tour of VW's Transparent Factory.

ART

 Seattle Museum Krishna interactive.

 Sylvia Plath: painter. Who knew?

ETC

 MacArthur Genius Awards announced.

 Top Twenty New Jobs for Rush Limbaugh.

 In addition to the previously mentioned Hilton sisters and Olsen twins, I should point out the importance of the Bush sisters. Barbara and Jenna are on Friendster (okay, they're fakester accounts). (Possible update on Friendster/Google: Friendster said no.)

 ObeyTheSuit.

LOCAL

 I'm not sure what exactly to think about the Strib's scary! hacker! story on 1A of the Sunday paper.

 The PiPress is doing First Ave. nostalgia now too. (Some good musician quotes though.)
