Oh eBay, why do you taunt me with your sweet, sweet kitsch?

The Union room is shooting a film in Meadville and needs a 16-22 year old leading lady.

The Downtown Edinboro Art and Music Festival has established a MySpace page. Don't hold it against them.

The Allegheny College Playshop Theatre continues its season with their first musical production the Playshop Theatre has performed for four seasons: Gilbert and Sullivan's comedic opera The Pirates of Penzance de Veracruz March 1, 2 and 3 at 8 p.m., with matinees on March 3 and 4 at 2:30 p.m. in Arter Hall. The production places Gilbert and Sullivan's pirates in 1910 revolutionary Mexico. Why not?

The Clarion University theater department presents the magical fairy tale Cinderella, at 8 p.m., Feb. 28 and March 1, 2 and 3, in Marwick-Boyd Auditorium. No eye-linered pirates or sultry Hispanic maidens. Pity, really. Tickets for the production are $11 for adults, $8 for children under 12 and $5 for Clarion University students with valid identification cards.

CMU's Tartan cranks out the sort of "What is a zine" article that we saw a lot of (heck, that I wrote a lot of) in the 90s. The interesting part is the revelation that Pittsburgh has a zine library - The Pittsburgh Zine Library and Archive, found at The Big Idea Infoshop, located at 504 Millvale Avenue in Bloomfield.

Philip Roth has won the PEN/Faulkner award for Everyman

The NYTimes dislikes Neal Pollack and other hip parents as much as I do.
