On the occasion of Ghostbar's second anniversary, the folks at N9NEGroup Dallas posted to Vimeo what must be the world's longest video slide show -- I bailed at the 12:47 mark (and stopped paying attention long before that), which isn't even halfway through the epic. Though, really, I'd have ended it around the two-minute mark, once it ran out of celebrities, by which I mean people you might at least recognize. Because you know what's coming after that. Jump for the video. --Robert Wilonsky

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
