Pop Culture Update

1 - Television stations across America brace for their most recent election night fiascos. Anyone who sneezes anything that sounds like "Bush takes Hawaii" will spark a multi-network rush-to-be-first binge of state declarations. My understanding is that Dan Rather has already called Pennsylvania for Kerry.

2 - You call him "Senior Citizen Jones," Lady! The Raiders of the Lost Ark trilogy will soon have, um, a fourth movie, making it the longest trilogy in history! A writer for the new flick has been tapped by the big names at the top.

3 - A winner has been named in the multi-month Culture Mavens contest and a new contest has begun! See entry below!

4 - Been dying to write that Great American Novel, but never found motivation? Well, what more could you want: it's National Novel Writing Month. So get off your butt and fire up the processor! Anyone who publishes a new novel from a major publishing house gets, like, 12 points or something.

5 - Finally, to kick off the first eye candy of the new contest period, we have the classic Mona Lisa, along with this link to a fantastic article from the Guardian detailing the airline baggage claim-like lines to see Mona, along with why we put ourselves through all the grief for the 15-second glimpse of the gal this article calls "one of the ugliest women in the world." It really is cultural and insightful and worth a few minutes of your time.
