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

It's not at all fucked up that someone launched a celeb gossip blog in the form of Digg -- it's fucked up it was Conde Nast.

Drop a prospective hottie into SingleStat.us and it emails you when their status has changes to single (after you pay $4).

Google Map of the Apple iPod space advert (zoom in).

MUSIC

Using Cobain's suicide note to see what Google Ads turn up. Ouch.

Awesome history of a ubiquitious six-second drum break, sampled in everything from NWA's "Straight Outta Compton" to jeep commercials. You've heard it a million times but never even realized it.

This is weird. Both The Times (Sia Michel) and The Sun write up Tapes 'N Tapes and cite blogs (positively and negatively, respectively) as the primary reason for their success.

FILM

The Criterion version of Dazed & Confused comes out today.

Trailer to Woody Allen's newest (already?!), Scoop, starring Scarlett Johansson.

TV

Daily Show takes a swipe at Katie Couric in industry ad.

Is that "iPod ad" really an iPod ad? The proportions are wrong, and I thought I read somewhere the claim that it was an ad was a hoax. And note how the water body(?) in the scroll wheel is the same color as the lake next door. If they wanted to make an ad, wouldn't they put it in the desert?
