Besides finding this little exchange between the TNT crew and Mark Cuban amusing, I picked out a few important aspects. There's actual substance here, unfortunately the clash of personalities is what's being played up.
1. Blogs vs. television. Older forms of media have been trying to grapple with emergence of blogs. Now, the media backlash has a high profile example in sports. Charles and Kenny dont "get it" about blogs, or the Internet.
2. Computer statistical analysis. Examples of such analysis can be see at http://www.82games.com/ and The NBA Tries to Make Teamwork a Science. Again, the TNT analysts don't "get it".
3.NBA analysis shows. Mark blogged earlier: 'Watching the ESPN crew with Stephen A, Greg Anthony and Tim Legler is painful. They are a cliche a second. Same soundbites every single game, just the player names are changed. TNT isnt much better. At least Barkley is entertaining at saying nothing." Indeed. How about relevant lessons from Hoops 101, instead?

Forbidden fruit? No longer. Sichuan's Signature Is Now Legal Again. Where did those Szechuan places get their Sichuan peppercorns, anyway? And I'm craving some ham right now. Now that's a meal: ham and Szechuan thrice-cooked pork.

I probably can't distinguish the American craft lagers and import lagers either. I always go for the local brew to encourage diversity and variety.

There's a trailer for V for Vendetta. The movie touches upon terrorism and other -isms; I wonder how well the movie will stay true to the spirit of the graphic novel.
'Once Upon A Time in Italy': The Films of Sergio Leone is an interview of Christopher Frayling on his new book, Once Upon A Time in Italy: The Westerns of Sergio Leone.

Turn On, Tune In, Veg Out - New York Times
Scientists and technologists have the same uneasy status in our society as the Jedi in the Galactic Republic. They are scorned by the cultural left and the cultural right, and young people avoid science and math classes in hordes. The tedious particulars of keeping ourselves alive, comfortable and free are being taken offline to countries where people are happy to sweat the details, as long as we have some foreign exchange left to send their way. Nothing is more seductive than to think that we, like the Jedi, could be masters of the most advanced technologies while living simple lives: to have a geek standard of living and spend our copious leisure time vegging out.
If the "Star Wars" movies are remembered a century from now, it'll be because they are such exact parables for this state of affairs. Young people in other countries will watch them in classrooms as an answer to the question: Whatever became of that big rich country that used to buy the stuff we make? The answer: It went the way of the old Republic.
