LAT In 90 Seconds — Blog Edition

violetblue.jpgWeb Scout: David Sarno gets Violet Blue‘s side of the weird BoingBoing controversy (the site scrubbed every post written about, by or containing Blue’s name.) Too bad he couldn’t get BoingBoing on the phone.

blog_photos_006.jpgThe Big Picture: Patrick Goldstein is new to blogging but has already learned the Golden Rule: Get other people to do work for you. To that end, he recruited film producer Avi Lerner to review a number of new releases. (To wit: “The Love Guru: ‘The worst movie I’ve seen in my life. It was so stupid I wanted to cry. Do I really have to say more?’”) If he’s smart, Goldstein will put this guy on retainer. (Might we recommend a MUCH smaller photo next time? The crop tool is your friend.)
