Well, bloggers, I've got some good news and some better news for you. The good news is that I have a list of great media blogs (intern-approved!) to check every chance you get. The better news is that I have a list of great blogs (not necessary pertaining to the media) that are bound to brighten your day (or at least make you smile in your cubicle).
For All You Media Moguls...
Nymag.com's Daily Intel: your daily dose of hard, breaking news with a dash of sarcasm and a pinch of irony.
The Daily Beast: its Cheat Sheet is all you need to have any sort of intelligent conversation with a) your parents, b) the guy on the subway, and c) your coworkers. One of my personal favorites is today's photo quiz - Guess the Stars' Shaved Heads. Inspired by Colbert.
Romenesko: facts-forward and serious. Warning: might induce a yawn or two.
Gawker: boasts articles that run the gamut, from Laura Ling/Euna Lee coverage to horrifying Father's Day gifts to hippie schools refusing kids financial aid.
Jezebel: your celeb/fashion fix. Loving some of the headers, like thinspiration and (un)fitness.
For All You Entertainment Junkies...
Nymag.com's Sex Diaries: every week, various bloggers ("hot young things" or "divorcees" or "the older women") document their sex lives. Some postings can get a little racy, but others are rather educational.
Overheard in New York: an oldie, but goodie. There's some quality one-liners from NYU students on the 1-train...
Texts from last night: clearly journalism at its finest.
This is why you're fat: but that deep-fried peanut-butter-and-banana sandwich just looks sooo good!
Postcards from yo momma: think FML meets 'yo momma' jokes.
That's so fetch: great recommendations for new songs, movies, etc. And I hope you didn't miss the URL's reference to Mean Girls (her dad created Toaster Strudel).
What Claudia wore: don't lie, you obviously remember Claudia from The Babysitter's Club. Well, she's the inspiration for this fashionista blog. It keeps you posted on all levels of fashion icons - Chuck Bass' obsession with purple on Gossip Girl to the new Jackie O, Michelle Obama.
Awkward Family Photos: need I say more? We know and love them.
Those should keep you busy for the remainder of the week (or at least until the Ed Intern Party tonight)! I'm off to blog about fall beauty tips. Stay tuned, and good luck to all the Ed Trust Fund applicants!
