———————————————————— by Turner Lavoie Literary Correspondent, White Cover Magazine ———————————————————— The funny thing about being an awfully pessimistic website (all the time) is that you eventually become as predictable as the stuff you claim isn’t creative. This doesn’t make you a genius. It makes you a mouth.Read more "What’s More Predictable: Grantland or The Great Gatsby?"
———————————————————— by Ballin’ Jones Hardcourt Correspondent, White Cover Magazine ———————————————————— These are the stories I love. Lit mixes with the world of sports. GQ can’t keep up (because they don’t actually read), and Metta World Peace (oh, Hell, it’s Ron Artest) stands out above the rest of the flock. The L.A.

After it’s less-than-$10-million opening, Cloud Atlas will most surely be trashed in your daily paper, your evening TV report, or your MSN.com homepage. Why? People are lazy. The fact is, Cloud Atlas aims to be large and grand, and audiences don’t leap for intelligent films. They discover them over time, but being brave has no place in […]Read more "Top 5: Reasons to Watch “Cloud Atlas”"
