The minutiae of love.
You know that clicking sound that starts to happen on hard floors when a cheap-ish pair of dress shoes starts to wear at the heel? Jeff told me once that he loves that sound. So do I.
So THAT'S what he means by "restoring honor." →

barthel: CARLTON, N.Y. — Authorities have arrested a group of teenagers for yelling obscenities, honking car horns and firing a shotgun outside a mosque in western New York. Two 17-year-old boys and three 18-year-olds were charged with disrupting a religious service, a misdemeanor, at the World Sufi Foundation mosque in the Lake Ontario town of Carlton on Monday night.

Oncology Waiting Room Lulz
At the hospital waiting to see Jeff’s oncologist (just a regular check-up) and Jeff seems to think it’s hilarious to keep putting his iPad up to his head and pretend it’s a phone. “Hello? Hello??” I keep telling him it’s not funny, but I don’t think he believes me because I’m laughing so hard. I’m pretty sure most of the geriatrics around us don’t think it’s very funny. I don’t think most of them...

…so strong is the moral stature of the Rev. Dr Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement that even the white right prefers to pretend to emulate it. (This smarmy tactic long predates Glenn Beck, by the way: I remember Ralph Reed trying it when he ran the Christian Coalition more than 10 years ago and announced that he wanted to remodel the organization along the lines of the...

Scott Pilgrim vs The World
Went to see the Scott Pilgrim movie last night in Union Square (instead of the Emmys, but it seems all my faves won something, so yay!) I’m not a gaming enthusiast, or a huge fan of the twee Juno school of hipster cinema, so I was concerned that I would not enjoy this Cera film. I was completely wrong. The rapid-fire collision of a surprisingly authentic view of modern teen adventures and...
Is long form journalism starting a new chapter?
bojo: “With the help of Twitter and sites such as Long Form and The Awl, longer articles are finding a new lease of life as people take the time to find and read them” The web is dead. Long live the internet.
In the course of American history, if either liberals or conservatives disappeared entirely from the American scene, leaving the right or left to pursue their best ideas and most flawed excesses alike, this country would be in far worse shape than it is today. And anyone who thinks that completely vanquishing “the other side” in American politics would produce good results for...
