Washingtonienne

ONLINE

The Washingtonienne snuck onto bookshelves this week. A few reviews: Wired | DCist | WashPost. And an excerpt.

The Gawker kids launched a new blog: Oddjack, about gambling.

MEDIA

80 Years of The New Yorker to Be Offered in Disc Form. Comes out in October. Amazon pre-order.

MUSIC

Someone must remix these: World Livestock Auctioneer Championship MP3.

New White Stripes video: Blue Orchid. Also, Jack White just married a Brazillian supermodel.

Some of my favorite music bloggers have created the Music Blog Network.

Celine Dion Weird Al-ing Michael Jackson. Strange.

MARKETING

MTV's new viral campaign: MTV Video Awards Categories That Didn't Make It.

Okay Stella Artois advert.

Interview with Rob Walker, who does the highly-recommended "Consumed" column in the Times Mag.

EDUCATION

Have you seen the essay question that has been added to the SATs? Being a kid today sucks: "A sense of happiness and fulfillment, not personal gain, is the best motivation and reward for one's achievements. Expecting a reward of wealth or recognition for achieving a goal can lead to disappointment and frustration. If we want to be happy in what we do in life, we should not seek achievement for the sake of winning wealth and fame. The personal satisfaction of a job well done is its own reward."

FILM

Did you hear that Johnny Depp tries to act like Michael Jackson all the way through Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Seems to be true: a new trailer.

New Wong Kar-Wai! New Wong Kar-Wai! New Wong Kar-Wai! (We've only been talking about it for two years, but at least there's a trailer now.)

I haven't read it yet, but you can be sure it's bookmarked: Zizek on Revenge of the Sith.

ART

10 Most-Faked Artists.

LOCAL

I've been putting a lot of time into MNspeak lately, so we've been a little slow here on Fimoc.

not that i want to ruin your chances of enjoying it, but 2046 wasn't all that great. or maybe i'm just not a Wong Kar-Wai guy.
