Trying really fucking hard to not be part of the problem.

Game, Set, Match

For those of you who read this site via RSS, I've launched the 2005 List of Lists page. (Previously: 2004 | 2003 | 2001.) As usual, email me if I'm missing something.

DATING

Is it true that Match.com had its employees go on bogus dates just to keep people subscribed to the service? And do they post faux-profiles that present flirtatious intent? Yes, according to a lawsuit...

New York Magazine has six sex columnists compare notes.

BOOKS

Not sure what this rebranding is about, but print.google.com has become books.google.com.

GalleyCat has an excellent first-hand account of last week's New York Public Library debate between Google and publishers groups. (Also in NYT.)

I didn't even realize that NYT gave Marjane Satrapi (the author of Persepolis) a blog which apparently illustrates her experience growing up in Iran. I say "apparently" because it's behind Time Select.

MUSIC

The only good thing about reissues is getting to read contemporary rock critics on classics. Pitchfork, somewhat surprisingly, rolls out a 10.0 for Springsteen's Born To Run 30th Anniversary Edition.

CELEBRITY

Google Maps + Celebrity Addresses = Celebrity-Maps.com

PHILOSOPHY

Deborah Solomon calls up Jean Baudrillard for an interview in the Sunday Times Mag. Peculiar answers.

TV

Did you hear about this supposed reality show where contestants will be tricked into believing they're in outer space!? (via)

FILM

The trailer to some crazy ass shit that Tarantino produced.

Spore isn't out for another year yet, is it?

Maybe not, but isn't this a splendid time to get some buzz going about it?

*gasp* Did I catch a 'Madonna' in there? If I see pictures of you dancing around your apartment to that CD I'm so suing.
