Emily Nussbaum of New York Magazine wrote a very long, detailed article about everything that ‘Lost’ did wrong. It’s getting a lot of attention, mainly because she’s merely reiterating the fan backlash about the final episode. The main complaint is that the creators of the series did not properly map out the storyline, as they had promised. All along they told us that they had a plan in mind, while they were instead making it up as they went along. That’s the argument anyways. Personally, I stopped watching the show after Season 1. I seem to be the only person on the planet that got angry about it being science fiction. Apparently, the intention from day one was to make the show science fiction, and I didn’t get the memo. Anyways, read the article at your own risk (I’ve posted the link below). It’s pretty harsh, but as ‘Lost’ showrunner Damon Lindelof has said, “if you get to close to the sun, you are going to get burned.”
I don’t have much to say about this cover, other than it has to be one of the worst I’ve seen in recent history. The folks over at New York Magazine need to have a long conversation with the responsible party. And also — the original article is flooded with an insane amount of copy that should only be reserved Paul McCartney. I’m a viewer-on-the-go. If I’m going to make a twenty minute reading stop, it’s not going to be for Kim Kardashian.
There are many shocking revelations in Jessica Simpson’s interview for New York Magazine. Though many might be shocked to learn that she’s a “fashion mogul,” with a company that will likely generally$1 billion in a single year, I’m mostly surprised by the cover. I often pick on Jessica Simpson for her image issues, so it’s only fair to give her credit when it’s deserved. She hit it out of the park with this cover. No gratuitous sexy face — just art. Good job, Jessica.
