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


 Salon is serializing Dave Eggers new novel.


 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.


 GQ profiles Joe Trippi.


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


 Another mainstream "theory is dead" story.

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


 SXSW web awards finalists announced. I'm trying to get down there this year, but it's looking iffy.

 I need a metaster too.

 Busuiness 2.0's 101 Dumbest Moments in Business.


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

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


 Res feature on Air that includes an excellent videoplayer. Go buy the new one, Talkie Walkie.

 Slate.com: Why Is Airplane Music So Universally Bad? NYT: A Better Night's Sleep, Flat Out at 35,000 Feet.

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

 Billy Corgan (or his 15-year-old sister) is blogging.


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


 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.


 Have you been reading Melissa's new don't-call-it-sex-and-the-city-ish column at CP?

 Fog of War finally opens here this week.

 Shhh... don't tell anyone else about our entrepreneurial genius.
