steve holt!

Wouldn't it be fun to turn this into a Maureen Dowd blog for a couple months? Yeah, okay, maybe not.

TV

Arrested Development is going bye-bye. Steve Holt!

Rich people love The Apprentice.

Biz Week's interview with MTV's Jason Hirschhorn covers a lot of interesting ground, including Comedy Central's Motherload, MTV's Overdrive, and iFilm.

MEDIA

NY Mag's long look at Mike Lacey (New Times' exec editor) and the history of the Village Voice is the best piece so far on this whole alt-weekly skirmish.

ONLINE

WaPo does a conspiratorial Google rant, but it's also the first mention of Google's dream to make your DNA searchable. You read that right: "Sergey Brin says searching all of the world's information includes examining the genetic makeup of our own bodies, and he foresees a day when each of us will be able to learn more about our own predisposition for various illnesses, allergies and other important biological predictors by comparing our personal genetic code with the human genome, a process known as 'Googling Your Genes'."

Paris Hilton doesn't change facial expressions.

For the true nerd: digg vs. dot.

MUSIC

Madonna's new album comes out this week. Have you seen the video to the first single? Yowza.

New White Stripes video staring Conan, directed by Michel Gondry.

New Shakira video. NYT is all hyped on her this week: The Shakira Dialectic.

A large Wikipedia entry on Paul Is Dead.

FILM

NYT has a small item on the film Zizek, which I saw here in Minneapolis last week.

Was that you sitting in the back at the Lagoon (at Get Real) with the groupies asking you all sorts of questions? My wife was wondering who that was.

we used to. the lounge at the burnsville bowl. discotrek which was in cedarvale (now grandslam) uncle sams. that was 1978-180 though. burnsville bowl used to have a slide, like the one's at the water parks, that took you from the upper level to the lower level. really.
