Who didn’t see this coming? Stripper/blogger/novelist/screenwriter Diablo Cody is splitting from her husband Jonny Hunt. Keen eyed types noticed that her Jonny’s Girl tattoo was gone, and the couple confirmed it on her blog. She closed the commnets section before announcing.

The Envelope’s Mark Olson recounts divorce tattoos in Hollywood history.

Cody might have waited until after Academy voting, as it’s unseemly to be seen as going Hollywood too quickly. Sandra Oh and Alexander Payne had better timing.

Rob Long explains the business model of sitcoms to Silicon Alley. Shocked merriment ensues.

Joss Whedon’s fans are researching a strike FAQ and chicken soup vendors.

Nikki Finke picks the winners of her caption contest.

Mark Deuze, a professor in Indiana, blogs about the abuse of talent in media, but needs to brush up on his show-biz lingo. Below the line isn’t just shorthand for “everyone else”.

Blogs go dark in solidarity, which is nice, but kinda dumb. “Unpaid writers stop writing to support writers who want to get paid.” Huh?

Osama bin Laden weighs in. It’s all the fault of the Jews and the gays, but really more the Jews. And especially the gay Jews.
