Jumping on the 3-D (topless) bandwagon

The Sun has announced that it will publish a 3-D edition the week before the start of this year’s World Cup. The tie is (I suppose) is that 25 games of the World Cup will be broadcast in 3-D for the first time.

3-D glasses will come with the paper and content is said to include both advertising and editorial.

Undoubtedly the editorial content will include some some pretty nifty soccer photos, but remember, The Sun is most know for the topless women on Page 3.

The Sun is reportedly upping its press run by hundreds of thousands for the 3-D issue.

Matt, Thanks for the newspaper gag!

If you missed the opening of The Simpsons this week, head on over to Hulu and watch the opening sequence

The “Couch gag” takes our favorite family through the Springfield Shopper’s Sports and Business sections, through display ads (for couches, of course) the Classifieds (notice their plea for it to come back) and then to the Comics page before all are reunited.

Thanks Matt!

When there are no newspapers, where will all the angry people go?

Media_http1bpblogspot_ftuje

Here’s a fun blog highlighting stories from local newspapers about pissed off people. Complaints about noise, parking tickets, holiday hell, stolen car (couple pictured above), vandals, etc., etc.

Having worked at local papers (read that as small town) I know that some folks have no hesitation to run down to the local rag to complain just about anything and everything under the sun.

These days, I suppose most people (at least the technology able) just start a blog. But they’re missing out on the local photogs straining their noggins to come up with a creative way to illustrate the story.

I think that what makes this particular newspaper blog fun is the obviously posed photos of all the angry people.

I guess we know know the answer to the eternal question asked by the Prefab Four: “All the Angry People, Where Do They All Come From?”
