Links for 2008-05-22
Today was my last day in NYC so I’m late with links.
Last night we went to see the absurdly enjoyable, gleefully theatrical riff on Alfred Hitchcock’s “The 39 Steps” on Broadway; afterward we went backstage to meet one of the amazingly talented stars, Arnie Burton. Dinner at Vinyl rounded out (groan, couldn’t resist) the night.
ON TMV TODAY:
- DRM ALERT: Don’t give Microsoft the remote control - Bad Vista! Following reports that digital television viewers were blocked from recording the new season of NBC’s “Gladiators”, Microsoft confirmed that it is preventing users from recording the show.
- Georgia: publication features Obama in crosshairs on cover for article on white supremacist threat, spiralstairs @ Daily Kos and Blogs for Democracy have this too. Very alarming.
- Teen Alex Phillips puts girlfriend’s nude shots on MySpace: Child porn? - this is something I would typically give the full post treatment but given that TMV is skittish about such things I’m not sure where to go with this important topic. The kid was seriously out of line. The answer is NOT a child porn charge.
