A Triptychal Patch (i.e. "Three Updates")

1) The latest album from Britney Spears has pushed Kanye West's "808s & Heartbreak" out of The Top 10 Debut Weeks of the year (which should have included Taylor Swift).

2) Although it's not completely out of theaters — and is slated for re-release next year — with approximately 75 million tickets sold, The Dark Knight is now the third most-seen superhero movie (population adjusted), and most seen in absolute numbers.

3) Harvard (296 Ghits) & Princeton (295 Ghits) have leapfrogged Columbia to become the Ivy League domain-name most-associated with hipsters. Dartmouth slips to the bottom. Order otherwise unchanged.
