The Grey Album is less great in retrospect

the most exciting powerpoint of all time

Ya know, I haven't seen the Al Gore movie yet, but how fucking awesome is it that a gigantic powerpoint has been getting raves? It give nerds hope.... too much hope. On with the links:

MUSIC

National Review's Conservative Top 50 Songs. Fuck you, classic rock.

I started watching this commercial for Beck's beer thinking it was a new Beck music video. Actually, is there any difference anymore?

Suicide Girls interview with Mike Patton, whose Peeping Tom came out this week.

ONLINE

The New Yorker revisits Jason and Meg. The original, from six years ago. Gawker's take.

TV

I wonder why Pinky and the Brain isn't on DVD.

Holy shit, there's a lot of bad reality tv coming to network this summer.

LISTS

Chronicle of Higher Ed: The Lure of Lists.

WORDS

Guardian Mag profile of Douglas Coupland, in which 1) he subtly disses Steven Berlin Johnson's game book, 2) we learn he has a movie called Everything's Gone Green coming out, and 3) he delivers his definition of irony.

FILM

Google has movie trailers now too.

Pinky and the Brain, as well as Animaniacs, are coming to DVD in July at some point. Then again, with all of them on YouTube...who needs DVDs?

Yes, but Al Gore's presentation gives OS X nerds even more hope since he's using Keynote to give the presentation. And both his Powerbook and Safari are prominently featured in the film.

I haven't seen the film, but I will say that it his presentation was probably the best use of Keynote that I have ever seen. Almost film-worthy, maybe. :-)
