Now Reading: Wall Street Journal, Bruno Mars, New York City booze

What’s next for the Wall Street Journal?

David Carr writes that there are layers of concern regarding the future of the Wall Street Journal, the long-time power publication of finance news. First there is the economics: News Corporation will soon split into two companies, with the entertainment (film) side becoming Fox Group, and the publishing side maintaining the News Corp. label. In a time of declining ad revenue, Journal executives worry about a significant revenue safety net – blockbuster movies and television – being pulled, at least in official capacities, from out underneath the newspaper. Second is a change in leadership, with Robert Thomson moving up to oversee the empire, and Thomson’s deputy Gerard Baker replacing him as managing editor of the Journal. As Carr gets to in his column, reporters and other staff members aren’t sure Baker has hands capable enough of steering the paper into a prosperous future.

The artistic brilliance of Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars is out with his second album, “Unorthodox Jukebox,” and this Jon Caramanica piece provides a great breakdown of the album and Bruno himself. I can’t say I’m a huge Mars fan – that would require listening to him religiously, I presume – but I’m forever amazed by his range of talents. His songwriting chops, the way he can run across a stage and own it only to then sit down and make 10 fingers dance brilliantly and beautifully across piano keys. Oh, yeah, and the dude has genuine singing talent, not the digitally processed noise that is far too common. An amazing talent.

New York City booze makers

This is really cool: a long list of New York distillers who are producing their own booze around the city’s different boroughs. It includes a little bit about each distiller, tells you where to buy it, when and how much it costs to try it and also a tip on how (and with what) to drink the booze. There is a lot of gin to choose from, but I think my first taste would be corn whiskey from Kings County Distillery in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Colin Spoelman and David Haskell “nostalgically” refer to it as moonshine and, according to the piece, were the first in New York to distill whiskey since Prohibition.
