1. LAist Interview: Matt Reeves, Director of Cloverfield: It was nice to have so many Cloverfield fan sites point to this in depth interview. Who knew that the Iraq War influenced the filming style of this movie or that the title, Cloverfield, was misheard, but stuck?

2. Secretary of State Debra Bowen Checks Out NH Voting Machines: Wandering around the New Hampshire primaries, Los Angeles based Jacob Soboroff of Why Tuesday? bumps into the California Secretary of State, Debra Bowen.
