Maybe you noticed (over to the right, beneath our Twitter Updates header) that yesterday, The New York Times took A Peek Into Netflix Queues in 12 U.S. cities, including Dallas. The breakdown's by zip code and ranks the top rentals of '09 -- and most zips find The Curious Case of Benjamin Button perched at the top spot. A few exceptions: In the 75210, it was Don Cheadle's Traitor coming in at No. 1; in the '212, Twilight bit off the top of the list; while in the '241, it was Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
