Must Read: Popwatch

Sweet mystery of life, at last I've found you. You ask questions I wonder about, like "Whatever happened to Joey Lauren Adams?" (Turns out she's alive and well and editing her directorial debut.) You poke fun at your own magazine's absurdly early Oscar predictions. (Really, guys, what were you thinking?) You expose the seamy underbelly of Jack radio (who, in the Philadelphia Area, goes by Ben, and is voiced by the recently scorned-by-Dancing-With-The-Stars J. Peterman). You are an embarrassment of riches. You are my new ultimate 1-stop shop for all things pop. I think we'll be mining your content for library-related ruminations of our own (minus the cud, of course).

    Wow, Sophie. A very small group of us work with killer deadlines to create PopWatch -- and reading your note (one of the nicest I've ever seen) makes it all worthwhile.

    Thank you!

    Well, you totally kick pop culture butt! Any chance you'd want to talk with one of us about how you gather information, how you decide what to cover, and what the future of PopWatch might be? Dang, I wish you'd left an e-mail address!
