Glendale Bear to Challenge Kim Kardashian for Mayor of Glendale

Looks like Kim Kardashian already has a challenger for the 2017 Glendale mayoral election. Gotta be honest, this Fishie is pretty torn. On the one hand, as someone who lives in Glendale, the mere mention of Mayor Kardashian has me pricing moving trucks. And our tweeting bear is beloved.

On the other hand, as someone who writes for the Glendale News-Press on occasion, the thought of Mayor Kardashian fills me with the kind of journalistic glee that could only be trumped by Mayor Emma Watson. (Hermione!) Plus the inevitable influx of NBA and hip-hop stars to our fair city under Mayor Kardashian would probably make the nightlife more interesting. Doesn’t riding the fake Americana trolley with Kanye sound fun?

Both candidates have five years to win me over–only six months more than our current presidential election cycle. I’m hoping for some face time with the bear at Billy’s. That is if he’s not too hung over from his recent meatball and tranquilizer binge.

Zinio And Marie Claire Are Makin’ Moves When It Comes To Magazine Apps

Marie Claire has released an iPad app with the help of Zinio and Hot Studio. The three have worked together to create a more interactive means of reading magazine content online, in essence transforming Marie Claire into a “video magazine.” We spoke with representatives from Hearst, Zinio and Hot Studio to get a clear picture of how this collaboration came to be and what it means for the future of magazines. Innovative features for the app’s free (yes) download offers a curated look at sample features from several recent issues of the magazine. Readers then have the option of buying a single issue for $3.50, or a year’s subscription.

Marie Claire‘s branded app includes twenty minutes of video content, fashion pieces, moving (literally and, sure, figuratively) editorial, the option to shop products within the app itself (check out the screen grab at top, for instance) with deep links to shops and advertisers,  interactive 360 degree products images, and interactive quizzes that, when completed, reveal relevant information and content tailored for the reader. Plus, the app features a “living” cover showing actress Emma Watson in motion rather than as a static image. Which, come on. Is just pretty freaking cool.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Teaser

Warner Bros. has released an online teaser for the last film in the Harry Potter series. The studio is doing it’s best to capitalize on the final book, breaking Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows into two feature length films, to be released on Nov. 19, 2010 and July 15, 2011. JK Rowling told Oprah Winfrey that she might have more Harry Potter books in her, but when questioned by Scholastic Magazine, actors Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe said they’re done with the series. Radcliffe observed that “ten years is enough,” and Watson said, “No, I wouldn’t return, it feels so complete what we’ve done.”

So enjoy the final, drawn out chapter, cause these kids have had enough:
