ocean's 12

CONSUMPTION

James Surowiecki brilliantly outlines the decline of brands in Wired.

ONLINE MEDIA

New: MediaBloggers.org.

Another cool media mapping application: 10x10. Here's how it works. (See previously: Newsmap.)

TV

The upcoming season of Six Feet Under will be its last.

L.A. Weekly raves about Veronica Mars too, comparing it to Buffy, Raymond Chandler, Twin Peaks, and The O.C.

GAMES

The reviews for Halo 2 are starting to appear on MetaCritic.

Slate asks Why Aren't Video Games Funny?

POLITICAL MAPS

Look familiar? (No, it's not the Jesusland one you've seen a million times already.)

FILM

Ocean's 12 trailer.

MUSIC

New on Technorati: Top MP3s.

Bret Michaels (yes, of Poison) has a country album out with a song that's in Country's Top 40.

What should we do with this trend where a musician puts together a mixed tape of their favorites songs? Should this be a saleable product? I own ones by Tricky and Morrissey. The other day, I noticed one of the dorks (I say that affectionately) from Grandaddy has one too. Lots of samples on the neat website.

WORDS

Decent NYTBR this week, with David Foster Wallace putting Borges on the couch.

LOCAL

Blogumentary was a quite a success. Chuck posts some pics from the premiere.

Ed Schultz has a book out. Who's he? He's an increasingly-famous former-conservative-turned-progressive talk show host outta Fargo. I was interviewed on his show a few times back in the college days.
