Screenplay idea: Man gets amnesia and reconstructs his life from blog comments he wrote. Short film -- he kills himself after 11 minutes.

BOOKS

Finally, a follow-up to my very old Amazon list "College Friends Who Punched Me," I have created "My Year As..." in response to the spate of recent books in which people do something (strip, change genders, read the encyclopedia, etc.) for a year. Let me know what's missing from the list.

ONLINE

Amazon's Most-Edited Wikis.

NYT Biz: Making money with MySpace. (Onion: New MySpace Security Measures infographic.)

Onion: iTunes To Sell You Your Home Videos For $1.99 Each.

Be honest, you spent your Sunday reading the Google/China NYT Mag story too.

TV

NYT (Itzkoff again) on Robert Smigel's upcoming SNL retrospective.

Full-length video on IFCtv.com: Behind The Badge (SXSW), with by Ben Brown of Consumating as the interactive lead.

Just when I began to think we had no modern cultural heros left, the Wonder Showzen guys come along.

MUSIC

Love the new Air video.

"Once you hear my audio demo, you'll just be blazed!"

Blender (on AOL?): The 50 Worst Things To Ever Happen To Music.

Smashing Pumpkins. Despite all my rage...

T-SHIRTS

I Facebooked Your Mom.

Please put your sexual picture in your weblog.

My first thought was, "Did he include 'Newjack: Guarding Sing Sing'?" And you had- but the 2001 book appears on your list as the retitled "Holding the Key: A Year Guarding SIng SIng." Marketing types are totally annus obsessive.

That's Amazon's titling, not mine -- I just shove in ISBN numbers.

I didn't mean it to read as if I was referring to you, but I guess it did come out that way- but you know that I know you are not in marketing!
