  • Top 10 Endangered Newspapers

    Those smug bastards over at Time magazine have drawn up a list of the ten major newspapers most likely to go under or go digital very soon. Topping the list is the Philadelphia Daily News, which nobody reads anyway (I’m from Philly), but some non-second-rate papers included on the list are the Chicago Sun-Times and the Boston Globe, which is reportedly losing $1 million each week.

  • Credit Crunch Casting

    Because everything is recession-themed nowadays, Empire magazine offers Hollywood some cheaper alternatives to expensive movie stars. In some cases, the alternative is actually an improvement, like when they suggest replacing Jim Carrey with Will Arnett. If only we could accomplish that forever, in real life, I think we’d all be much happier.

  • Recession Hits the Rialto

    Broadway musicals are dropping like flies due to tough economic times. Godspell, Brigadoon, and For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf have been scrapped before opening, and others are threatening the same. We say, what gives? Why is it that when pennies must be pinched, tap shoes and glitter are always the first things to go? Sigh. Read More ›
