FBLA 20 Questions: Peter McQuaid

irish.jpg

Freelancer and Irishman Peter McQuaid joined us just in time for St. Pat’s.

1. What newspapers do you read? The L.A. Times, The NY Times, WWD, The Guardian and if I’m feeling really masochistic, The Washington Post.

2. Which ones do you move your lips to while reading? I don’t move my lips while reading the paper, I’m too busy gnashing my teeth and screeching out loud about either: the news itself, the lameness of the reporting, or my annoyance that someone besides me got the assignment.

3. Which Web sites are on your favorites bookmark? FBLA, because if there’s anything LA needs, it’s some non-Hollywood gossip, and I’m not being facetious. Rawstory.com, Fleshbot, Radar, Al Jazeera, and dudesnude.com because I’m single.

4. Where do you get your car washed? This place on Vermont–It’s really cool, they have a car stereo place in back and I always go in there and fantasize that someday, I will get my Pathfinder painted Emergency Red and outfit it with a really phat sound system. It is my dream to be a playa…

1175612227_l.jpgPop On The Pop is much, much more fun than any of those big-boy celeb gossip sites, and here’s one reason why: Joy A (pictured here showing off her lovely eyelids).

I don’t actually read any newspapers right now, because I’m real busy. But I do glance! Haha. I take a good glance at The LA Times, sometimes USA Today. I also visit news sites.

2. Which ones do you move your lips to while reading?
I think I read too fast for moving my lips simultaneously.

3. Which Web sites are on your favorites bookmark?
As far as celeb gossip goes, I’m a sucker for People’s website and TMZ. But some of my fave bloggers are Evil Beet and Seriously? OMG! WTF?.

FBLA 20 Questions: GirlsTalkinSmack.com

kim.gifFBLA talks to the dishiest girls of online celebrity dish: GirlsTalkinSmack.com’s Kim (pictured. kinda) and Tiff, who inform us that even though they don’t get their own hands inky for the news, papers aren’t dead; satellite radio isn’t all that and Josh Holloway, apparently, both maxes and relaxes.

1. What newspapers do you read?

Kim: Newspapers? I honestly don’t really read anything made of paper, it’s SO 1999 (joking, of course). Well, I read my local newspaper (which is the Bakersfield Californian) once in a while. And I love mags like Allure, Elle, Vogue and Lucky.

Tiff: I actually read the New York Times online, and go through MSNBC’s headlines, other than that, I don’t read actual papers. I prefer television news and gossip blogs.

2. Which ones do you move your lips to while reading?

Kim: All of the above.

Tiff: I don’t really move my lips while I read, I think I read too fast for that.

3. Which Web sites (other than FBLA, of course) are on your favorites bookmark?

Kim: Well, my laptop got wiped out a virus a few weeks ago so I’m still in the progress of getting things back to normal. I’m always reading PoponthePop.blogspot.com , TabloidWhore.blogspot.com and PopBytes.com. They’re the real cream of the crop if you ask me; they stand out more as online magazines than blogs. Also fashion related sites like StyleBites.blogspot.com, Nitrolicious.com and MyFashionLife.com. Other than that I’m hanging out at IdolForums.com or TheFashionSpot.com, or working on my own sites because I have, like, a million of them, ya know?

Tiff: I always end up at Pink is the New Blog Livejournal, and MySpace every day.

6. Do you believe newspapers are going to die? If so, when?
