Need a body double. Simple can't keep up. Who won Iowa and New Hampshire? Who, you say? Here's what we've got:

WORDS

 Salon is serializing Dave Eggers new novel.

FILM

 Gothamist reports on the casting to the new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy film, which includes Martin Freeman from The Office, Zooey Deschenal, and Mos Def. In other news, NBC is gonna try to adapt The Office. Ahem, no comment.

POLITICS

 GQ profiles Joe Trippi.

PUBLISHING

 Michael Wolff leaving New York, off to Vanity Fair, which sucks because now I'll have to start buying Vanity Fair.

WORDS

 Another mainstream "theory is dead" story.

 Huh, there's a Name of the Rose board game.

 I need a metaster too.

 Busuiness 2.0's 101 Dumbest Moments in Business.

CONSUMPTION

 I bought a red Danish couch named Opus today. Hello, modern world.

 New cut-n-paste agitprop flick: The Corporation.

 A very large collection of insects in rock and roll cover art.

TV

 The Voice gives The L Word a rave. So far, so do I. And the Joan Jett wannabe is my fave.

CELEBERITY

 Tallying the celebrity endorsements.

 Alex Trebek, genius driver.

 If you missed it, someone uploaded a quicktime video of the Paris Hilton appearance on SNL a few weeks back.

LOCAL
