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

waiting for a new year

Today, the Christian Science Monitor mentioned Fimoc (last paragraph). What's new in the big list? Well, there's the eye-catching Top 20 Nude Scenes of 2003 (Justine Bateman?), Yahoo's Top Searches 2003, Roger Ebert's Top 10, The Year of the Liar from the luscious Heather Havrilesky at Salon, and a whole lot more.

ONLINE

 NotFriendster.com

MUSIC

 Shatner to release new album, produced by Ben Folds.

FILM

 Trailer for Kill Bill Vol 2 (Japanese version).

TECH

 For a little bit of flashback fun, read this PC World story from two years ago that predicts what last year was supposed to bring. 1-GHz PDAs? Fuel cells for portables? Voice portals? Uh, yeah. At least they got the flat screens right.

BAD POLITICS

 Oh boy, gimme. Ann Coulter Talking Action Figure.

 Newsweek put Jon Stewart on the cover, and wrote a boring story about him.

 USA Today manages to pen perhaps the worst story ever on blogging and politics.

MEDIA

 The Times has a suprisingly must-read-ish 14-story collection on the future of media and technology.

 For those who have been sleeping the last week, a merger catchup: Comcast bought TechTV | FedEx bought Kinko's | News Corp bought DirecTV | Rex bought a $150 coffee pot that grinds the beans and makes the coffee with a timer.

 Kottke says he will read a magazine every week for a year. All the freaks come out to tell him which ones to try.

ARCHITECTURE

 Gehry: "I'm just an architect."

LOCAL

 Anyone know about this Trend Agenda thing coming to town? Okay, let me rephrase that: Anyone know how I can get in without forking out $350? "Trend Agenda is for those who want to help shape the future -- the curious and courageous. Philosophers, leaders, innovators and mavericks." Hell, they should pay me to go.
