The side-benefit of dating Jewish girls in this silly city: my Words With Friends gameplay has become much better!

tube poker?

FILM

Who wants to play Tube Poker? Cool, here are the rules and a trailer.

Trailer to Walk The Line, wherein Joaquin Phoenix plays Johnny and Reese Witherspoon plays June.

Cronenberg in the Times Mag.

ONLINE

A lot of people are talking about Yahoo's recent forays into content, including hiring Kevin Sites (who some people know as an intrepid Iraq blogger, but I know as the guy who beat me for the Wired Rave Award -- I kid). Yahoo has already launched a promotional page, Kevin Sites in the Hot Zone, which hints at some of what he will be doing.

Google Earth used to discover Roman ruins. Up next: WMDs in Iraq.

MUSIC

It took a full month for the New York Times to retaliate Salon's heavy-metal-is-smarter-than-you-think feature with their own heavy-metal-is-smarter-than-you-think feature.

Oh what the heck, another M.I.A. profile (WaPo). But the one in The Observer a couple weeks ago was better.

Please, someone else read the NYT Mag cover story on Bono and tell me if it's worth it, cuz it's just going to lay untouched by my bed for a week otherwise.

PRODUCTS

A while ago, The Onion did a parody of the Gillette vs. Schick battle over blades on the razor. Then it became real.

NOT FOOD

Smoking Gun: Hooter's Employee Manual.

MUSIC VIDEOS

I think Prodigy only exists to make music videos. The new one for "Voodoo People" is a reality tv sendup.

DESIGN

Huh, Business Week gave John Maeda a column.

Best part of the Gillette deal: they call it a "system". Puh-leez.

no no no rex. the bono article is quite informative. skip the middle part about the history of the band. the rest is good. there's a lot of information about what he's negotiated (cancelling debt in africa) and now what he's negotiating (more aid for sick and hungry in africa). also good explanation of how he's been able to reach out to all sides, particularly in the american political fray. the libs already are on board, but it's surprising how he's reached the right and gained their support. (amen, amen.)
