stuff to read

The Observer's 10 Worst Cover Songs

I Was a Zombie Extra in Romania


The Nation praises new Eminem video (no, really)

more on Japanese baby names (turns out Spider-Man is not allowed; surely at some point somebody will write haiku based on the forbidden words)

Queen bootlegs itself

somebody analyzes the politics of Page 3 girls (again: no, really)

a celebration of Scottish gloom

Nobel laureate can't be published in the US

Graham Greene in the Age of Bush

210 channels and still a wasteland

and today's too-much-free-time sites are superhero blogs, not ones about but ones "by" superheroes: Hulk and Green Arrow (I'm waiting for Barbara Gordon's)
