Pop Clips 21 April 09

Forget Big Brother! It's BIG BIRD! "A University of Wisconsin researcher posted a 23-character message to Twitter using his brain..."

Monday's Siena Poll shows some people would rather have Eliot Spitzer back as New York's Governor... nevertheless David Paterson presses on. In my heart, he'll always be dearly remembered as the "Governor with a keen sense of humour!" Then there's Paterson, a special school for students with disabilities... And, let's not forget Andrew for one New York minute!

Women of Sand is a theater documentary that chronicles the testimonies of relatives of victims of the feminicides of Juarez, Mexico and has been performed by more than 30 groups worldwide writes Nuestras Hijas de Regreso a Casa [es].

Yesterday was the national holocaust memorial day in Israel. Coincidentally, it was also the opening day of the highly contested UN Durban II conference on racism in Geneva. Gilad Lotan updates us with reactions from Israeli bloggers, who link both occasions.

Paranoid Politicker? "An unholy alliance has emerged between Barack Obama, Hugo Chavez, Matt Drudge and Rush Limbaugh. The Fox News Channel is probably involved, too."

Because of Passover, the theme of last night's ep of Gossip Girl was, fittingly, redemption. Here's a re-cap from Gawker.

Check out the poster for the new Gossip Girl spinoff.

On Location Tours has launched a Gossip Girl tour of Manhattan!

Drivers nearing downtown Albany might see more action than they are used to in upcoming days as film crews shoot car chase scenes for an action-thriller starring Angelina Jolie.

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
