Magic Hat Brewery is facing a ban
in several Lexington, Kentucky establishments after a recent lawsuit against local business West Sixth Brewery. Many are dubious
about the claims being made regarding copyright infringement. The Consumerist offers a visual guide to some of the potential similarities
between the designs. West Sixth claims that they are experiencing corporate bullying
and have asked the community to sign a petition and stop drinking Magic Hat, while Magic Hat argues that West Sixth has been less than straightforward
with the public. West Sixth responds
with further claims of corporate chicanery.

Columbia students stuff Nutella in their pants to the tune of $1,000s a week.
(SLNYT) Last month one of Columbia’s undergraduate dining halls began serving Nutella every day, not just in crepes on weekends. The problem was that the Columbia students went through jars and jars of Nutella — at least 100 pounds a day. Apparently they were not just eating it in the dining hall. They were spiriting it away in soup containers and other receptacles, to be eaten later.

But Mr. Durant, who looks like a cheerful Jim Morrison, with shoulder-length curly hair, has emerged over the last year as a chieftain of sorts among 10 or so other cavemen." - Joseph Goldstein, writing in The New York Times.

J.T. LeRoy: The Next Lit-Crit It Boy?
A report from the trendy and bespectacled world of hipster-lit book-readings and its newest star, the mercurial J.T. LeRoy. From the article: "LeRoy is the mirror image of the New York hipster’s aspiration: the lost soul done good, when so many in the audience, in pricey vintage t-shirts, seemed to want nothing more than to shed the trappings of middle-class life. More than a few in the audience spoke of him with a sort of rapt awe usually accorded NBA stars and minor deities." For more info on LeRoy, check out the author's official website
