Vice wants to save you from your TV
If you haven't done so already, you might want to head on over to VBS.TV. Vice launched their online channel back in February and if you've ever read Vice you know you can count on it to be irreverent and unique. Everything from robotic and sexual active girlfriends in Japan to what's going on in Darfur. The series "Spike Spends Saturday With..." launched yesterday and has Spike talking with MIA.

Penguin Music is Closing its Doors
According to Eye Magazine, Penguin Music (on McCaul - will be shutting it down due to a dispute with their landlord. Not sure how long they have been in business but its a shame when that happens. Landlords can raise the rent as much as they want, and only give a store 30 days notice. There are no restraints whatsoever when it comes to commercial leases - so even a successful store is vulnerable to this. It just ends up killing retail diversity on the street. I guess they can always move, thats what Zoinks! did last year. Funny this was just going to be a one sentence news link but it turned into a rant. Guess I just had to get that off my chest.

Anyways, if anyone knows if there is anything that can be done about this I would really like to hear about it.

Here is a link to the news story in Eye Magazine.
