Nashville to OC Register Columnist: Get Your Trash Talk Facts Straight

There’s some good old-fashioned sniping going on between beat reporters in Anaheim and Nashville ahead of tonight’s NHL playoff series between the Ducks and Predators. Only problem is Orange County Register columnist Jeff Miller left himself wide open for a body check with his careless take-down of the Tennessee burg.

J.R. Lind runs down the laziness of Miller’s reportage in a fun piece in the Nashville Scene titled “Puck a Duck: Why Anaheim Sucks.” He reminds his colleague that Hee Haw hasn’t been on the air since 1993 and that Cracker Barrel is headquartered in Lebanon:

Saying it’s headquartered in Nashville is sort of like saying a company that’s headquartered in – I dunno – let’s say Anaheim, for the sake of example, is headquartered in Los Angeles.

Saturday night found everyone but a hung-over indisposed Justin Timberlake at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy bash, Jennifer Hudson was in full voice, as were The Blackeyed Peas and Smokey Robinson. Davis, known for speechifying to the max, dedicated the evening to Ahmet Ertegun.

Maria Villar, the other resident of Franklin Avenue, was nominated for a Grammy for her design of Rhino’s boxed set, Girl Group Sounds Lost and Found. She didn’t win, but she looked hot.

Marc Malkin thinks Jessica Simpson and John Mayer are an item. Ryan Seacrest asked Mayer directly, and got an answer in Japanese. Or maybe an order for Nobu to go.

The Envelope’s Jeff Miller sorts best, worst and who cares? moments. In no particular order: Police reunite, Joan Baez compares Dixie Chicks to Woody Guthrie and Carrie Underwood thanks Simon Cowell after her folks and the supreme deity.

Thrillist LA Launches: Good Deals and Great Times for Men

t_logo.gif

All over the country, men are crying out:

Where can I get some decent beef jerky?

Or so Thrillist would have you believe. According to LA editor, Jeff Miller, men need and want a trustworthy and useful lifestyle content provider. So, yes, it’s Daily Candy for guys. Without the smirkiness and the excessive use of pink.

According to the press release, Miller and his cohorts are

scouring the City of Angels for good deals, great times, illegal terrier fighting, and grouchy, old-timers who still call LA the City of Angels.

In a city that has plenty of pit bull fights, albeit in neighborhoods not populated by Thrillist subscribers, why terrier fighting is so desired beats us. Old time grouches aren’t hard to find either–Miller has our email address, doesn’t he?

With a fan base of some 40,000, Thrillist is quickly becoming vital to the daily lives of jerky-eating, micro-brew swilling, deal-seeking guys all over the country. Check it out.
