So, you've had it with the likes of "AVATAR," have you? Waiting around for the last Harry Potter flick? A new Tom Cruise movie (No, not the hoveround dude!) is coming out in June... Cameron Diaz co-stars in the film, directed by James Mangold. The blog CINEMATICAL tries to gauge the picture's value. The L.A. Times blogs that "Cruise seems to be the best part of the film."

Top Malaysian blogger babe Kimberly posts from nuffnang, making a spectacle of herself (and others) in the process...

Ever wonder why LiveJournal bans javascript? Word comes that a new Trojan virus, packaged to look like a downloadable Hentai game, could publicly expose your private internet activities.

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.

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.
