We meet again, Tuesday. Since the second day of the week is usually so boring and lame (unless you receive the odd sex tape), here’s a bunch of off-beat stories to keep you awake for a few more minutes.

&#151 US newspapers are fighting against the perception that they’re dying by advertising that they’re not dying, in dying newspapers. link


&#151 Now you can use your computer screen as a tanning bed. If ours was one, we’d look like Kevin from The Wonder Years. Even more. link

&#151 George Parker now writes for PSFK, and wants you to know things are really, really bad. link

&#151 The New York Times says that since the Super Bowl was such a close game, late-game advertisers got more bang for their buck. No kidding. link

&#151 Chrysler is putting all its branding under one roof. Sorta. link

&#151 MediaPost’s Kelly Samardak writes the funniest stories about the NYC media party scene. link

&#151 With this toothpaste, you can kiss in 3-D. Wha? link

&#151 The man no children’s clothing line would ask to be their spokesman, Michael Jackson, is being sued. Again. link
