MEDIA

Tucker Carlson and Jon Stewart are going head-to-head again. Their shows will air at the same time.

NYTBR has Richard Posner looking at the media.

MUSIC

NYT's Sunday arts cover story is on the history and future of the music video.

Spin.com: Klosterman Q&A.

ONLINE

Wired's 10 years cover story is starting to appear online. Good stuff, including Kevin Kelly's We Are The Web.

Of all the uses for Google Maps, this is by far the mostest awesomest. Instant maps of where the hotties are.

Speaking of which, did you know that there's a Google TV ad campaign for Google Maps?

FILM

NYT Mag profiles Jim Jarmusch.

Quirk ensemble indie film or trite remake of the genre, you decide.

An excellent list of good upcoming movies. (New ones by David Lynch, LaBute, Aronofsky, Tarantino, Linklater, etc.) Looks like 2006 will be a good year for film.

T-SHIRTS

What Is Scientology?

BLOGS

The Onion A/V Club has a blog.

BlogHer was the place to meet babes this weekend. Oh, I'm so bad. Here's a Flickr stream.

It's not a "rematch". Both their shows will just now be in the same timeslot.

Not a map of where the hotties are but rather a map of where the *self-proclaimed* hotties are. A dating service is a dating service is a dating service. Roses optional.

Sorry, I modified the first item so that it doesn't suggest a "rematch". And I'm certainly not going to argue with anyone about the scientific validity of HotOrNot, but it's not "self-proclaimed" -- it's voted on by users.

according to the map, there are no hotties in jersey...

A lot of dog faces on that flickr photo stream. I guess you had to be there...

the google maps commercial isn't a television campaign, since it's not actually airing anywhere. its whats known as a spec spot, which means it was done without consent of the client. new directors often do spec spots to build their reel.

Oh. I knew that. (No I didn't.)
