I can't agree more that ...

The NYT on The N

My So-Called Network: My only objection is the dissing of "Just Deal". It's one of the rare series that manages to be educational and yet have a plot. And not just a plot, but a plot that actually connects all the episodes. And we could only ever wish that a US teen series would be as realistic as Degrassi:TNG. I still wish The N would show the abortion episode though.

They really need to add Edgemont to round out their Canadian teen drama offerings. And, Gilmore Girls is already on ABC Family, and given the ratings it's drawing, I think they want to keep it for now. I could see it ending up on The N in another 5 to 8 years perhaps. The N would also do well to add The WB's Popular; another fantastic sarcastic teen show.

If this is true...

... then we're in big trouble. Break for News: "Search engine Google is ignoring thousands of news stories about the alleged theft of the U.S. presidential election."

This makes me


In this day and age, I really don't want to believe my own two eyes when I look at this flier that was distributed to potential voters of color.

The Postal Service partners with ... The Postal Service.

Pitchfork: "... Sub Pop is considering, under the auspices of their newly minted licensing deal, using local postal outlets as distribution points ..."
I would probably go to the post office more often, if they did have any indie-pop CDs. Maybe even a package, where, like, if I buy the CD, I'd also get a set of postcards and/or stamps bearing the logo/likeness of the band?
I must admit this is probably one of the coolest things that USPS has done in a long time, especially if they want to get a younger crowd talking about them.
