Idea: a chain of popup stores. (I don't know what it even means, but it seems like everything is now either a chain or a popup store.)

MEDIA

CBS MarketWatch has been sold to Dow Jones for $520 mill.

I think it's strange that a very long profile of Tom Brokaw ends up as the top story on Sunday NYT Arts this week. Has some good detail in it though.

TRENDS

T-shirt: Everything You Like I Liked Five Years Ago.

Um, non-trend: NYT tries to convince you that college kids are eating cereal like mad.

GAMES

Slate.com's review of Halo 2.

BEER

From the May 1975 issue of Oui [!], Robert Christgau reviews beer. Leinenkugel's and Heineken: A-. Labatt: C+.

MARKETING

In Japan, McDonald's is replacing that stuffy Ronald McDonald with McHotties.

More press on Crispin Porter + Bogusky, the agency that did the crazy chicken ad campaign for BK.

FILM

Trailer: The Ring Two.

You saw the big feature well on film that the NYT Mag did, right? I know, there's no reason for me to link to it, but just for the record, the piece on how the DVD is changing film is very good, even if it's way longer than it needs to be.

If you're a Jarmusch fan, the Guardian has a long profile.

LOCAL

Strib on the retro metro we're creating with that condo boom that's killing us lately.

Sunday NYT asks "Hüsker Dü II?"
