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.)

Loathsome

STRANGELY FAMOUS

I would do anything to make NY Press' 50 Most Loathsome New Yorkers (which mentions the word "blog" 19 times -- hoorah!). Well, except move to New York.

Wikipedia's list of most sexually active popes. To make that list, I'd even move to New York.

FOOD

You see this new BK Enormous Omelet? 730 calories, 47 grams of fat -- more than a whopper. Delish, I'm sure.

GAMES

New Sony PSP advert featuring Franz Ferdinand's "Take Me Out."

MUSIC

As Greg said, Bjork and Matthew Barney are the last people on the planet you'd expect to live in New Jersey. And yet...

David Byrne's online radio station.

TV

No popup ads on my TiVo yet, but I'm ready to be pissed off too....

BOOKS

Cheney's daughter is writing a memoir.

BLOGGERS

This is the weirdest dot-com news we've seen in quite some time. Arianna Huffington is starting something called The Huffington Report, a culture and politics webzine that will have a group blog with a strange cast of characters: Larry David, Barry Diller, David Geffen, Vernon Jordan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tina Brown, and more.

FILM

Thank god Courtney Love is back. She will be playing Linda Lovelace in a biopic.

SCIENCE

This New Scientist article was a fun read: 13 Things that Do Not Make Sense. Includes the placebo effect, dark matter, and cold fusion.

Slate reviews Make, which I have to confess I had a very hard time reading, and I'm probably the market demo.

LOCAL

To coincide with the smoking ban, City Pages did a printable guide to the only remaining smoker bars in the Twin Cities (all in St. Paul, of course).

Wow, that Strib story on punk rock glasses sure was fun, eh? I'm not going to say anything more than that because I see all the people in this story around Uptown, and I don't want any of them to punch me and break my non-retro glasses.

CP's music writing sure ain't slowing down with Missy Miss flying the coop. First off, Julianne Shepherd calls Beck's newest album his best ever. Whoa there, cowboy! And then there are Bridgette's and Lindsey's nice SXSW accounts, parts of which I got to see with them.
