HBR's naked credibility grab
Tom Matrullo reviews the reviewers in this hysterically inspired bit of gonzo bloggery. Just a taste to give you some idea of what you're in for: "Locke, a reticent man who is said to live in Switzerland, offered no comment on the fracas. Despite his low-key lifestyle, he is well known for his London tailoring, staid manner of delivery and 40 lb. wing-tips (he travels with his own shoeshine boy, a little African lad of about 85 named Sammie)."
Yeah? You got a problem with that?

Amazon reviews Bombast
Amazon just reviewd The Bombast Transcripts. Zounds! I may have to fly to Seattle to give S. Ketchum a big hug.
With The Bombast Transcripts, Christopher Locke (a.k.a. RageBoy, that iconoclastic cybervoice of dissonance, disdain, and all things provocative) is leaping from your screen to your bookshelf. Look out. The scathing rants from the creator of Entropy Gradient Reversals -- probably the most wittily outrageous, cryptically observant, and eagerly puzzled-over Web zine ever to pollute the airwaves -- are explosive.

Mass Media - What's Wrong With This Picture?
A special report from The Nation, including a very useful chart -- which is, however, much more readable in the print edition. I wish they'd rendered this in HTML instead of using Flash.
"For all their economic clout and cultural sway, the ten great multinationals profiled in our latest chart -- AOL Time Warner, Disney, General Electric, News Corporation, Viacom, Vivendi, Sony, Bertelsmann, AT&T and Liberty Media -- rule the cosmos only at the moment. The media cartel that keeps us fully entertained and permanently half-informed is always growing here and shriveling there, with certain of its members bulking up while others slowly fall apart or get digested whole. But while the players tend to come and go -- always with a few exceptions -- the overall Leviathan itself keeps getting bigger, louder, brighter, forever taking up more time and space, in every street, in countless homes, in every other head."

Frank Paynter kicks off a new party blog -- as in party line, as said Jeneane Sessum when she started Reading Gonzo. Ask him and he'll add you as an contributor. Frank writes...
Last April or May I was seduced by blogging because I read every filthy screed that Chris Locke sends my way, and count myself fortunate to be on his EGR mailing list. But I put it aside. I set up a blog called "Aging Hipster Be Not Proud" and pride kept me from exposing myself before this august (or July at least) company. I'm kind of the bearded Emily Dickinson of bloggers at this point...
