tapiblogMy favorite TV station is NY1.  Yes, it is egocentric since it is all about NYC and many of you do not live in this part of the world. Oh well – what can I do? Similar to 1010WINS radio, NY1 gives you all you need to know in 30 minutes. My favorite feature is called ‘What’s in the Papers’. I time my gym going to make sure I am on the treadmill at 41 past the hour (in the AM) to get a recap of what each local paper is covering, including the NY Time, the Daily News, the Post, Wall Street Journal. The Observer and Newsday. Often tongue in cheek, it is the best five minutes of TV on any given day. Now NY1 is sharing this feature on the web and you can watch the entire week’s worth of coverage. Check it out here. In case you do not know, that animal above is a tapir.

–  Remember TV’s The West Wing:

–  Want to feel better about your monthly statement? Check out this list of Bernie Madoff losers from The Wall Street Journal.

–  File this under ‘what the f**k? – Alberto “I can’t recall’ Gonzales is writing a book about his tenure as Attorney General. “What is it that I did that is so fundamentally wrong, that deserves this kind of response to my service?” he said during an interview Tuesday, offering his most extensive comments since leaving government. During a lunch meeting two blocks from the White House, where he served under his longtime friend, President George W. Bush, Mr. Gonzales said that “for some reason, I am portrayed as the one who is evil in formulating policies that people disagree with. I consider myself a casualty, one of the many casualties of the war on terror.” Gasp!

–  2008 Mug Shots of the Year – good grief!

–  Love these top ten angry on-camera moments:

–  Interesting photo site – Russia’s best art museum guards. In the art museums of Russia, women sit in the galleries and guard the collections. When you look at the paintings and sculptures, the presence of the women becomes an inherent part of viewing the artwork itself.

–  The Dangers of Being a Television News Reporter – gulp!

–  A subway map for words: Visuwords™ online graphical dictionary — Look up words to find their meanings and associations with other words and concepts. Produce diagrams reminiscent of a neural net. Learn how words associate.

–  Whoa! Tom Cruise on Scientology

Great launch for the new year, Lobo! I particularly liked the Museum Guards – reminiscent, somehow, of American Gothic.

Happy New Year.
