The Grey Album is less great in retrospect

two blogs to no blogs

Six months ago, I wanted to write about the trend in which a new type of blogger was emerging -- one who was not happy with just one blog, but needed two or three to satisfy different appetites. Now, however, I want to write about all the bloggers who seem to have let their sites go a little gray as they work double-time for big companies or small startups. Oh wait, both of those are autobiographical stories.

Hey look, some links:

MEDIA

The Times is hiring a futurist. Too bad I'm too busy with the present right now.

ONLINE

Patent infringements that most of us actually believe in: Netflix sues Blockbuster, TiVo sues Echostar.

Danah Boyd was on The O'Reilly Factor talking about MySpace. I wish she had mentioned either a) that MySpace is owned by FOX or b) MyDeathSpace.com.

Gawker has a headquarters.

TV

EW has a screengrab of the Lost map that Locke saw, which you can now stare at for 20 uninterrupted minutes.

Now this is TV blogging: 10 Best 80s Movie Music Videos.

BOOKS

Steven Johnson is writing another book you probably should have written first.

MUSIC

What's the new Spin gonna look like? This! OMG JK!

Onion A/V: Seven Songs With Factual Or Logical Mistakes In The Lyrics.

Tapes 'n Tapes album now available on Amazon.

New Yorker on Muzak.

Relive the Replacements' "Bastards of Young" video. Or fast-forward to today with the new Flaming Lips video.

Sebadoh III is being reissued and Pitchfork reviews it. Love this line, from Barlow himself: "Turning personal vendetta and small-minded revenge tactics into eventual cult status."

PERSONAL

Kurt Cobain died 12 years ago today in the city I now live in.

You know what? My workspace ain't that much different from Bill's. Except I think I have bigger monitors.

I can't possibly be the only one who saw Google Romance (April Fools!) and thought it was real. "When you think about it, love is just another search problem." Nay, hoped it was real.
