    "Read a good book."

    "Read a good book.":

    Louis Menand:

    The paperback presented the publishing industry with a dilemma. Many people in the business, whether they actually read books or not, believed that they should be packaged as upmarket commodities, cultural goods for people looking for something superior to mass entertainments like Hollywood movies and, after 1950, television. “Read a good book” is a phrase that has the ring of virtue. It implies that what is, after all, just another form of distraction is ...

    “When Tommy picked Michigan, I was devastated. I had to go into counseling.”

    -

    Tom Brady Sr., talking about his son’s decision to play football at the University of Michigan (my alma mater). He simply didn’t want “Tommy” going that far from home (California).

    Overall, a fascinating profile of Brady leading up to the Super Bowl.

    The Great Robot Novel:

    Hephzibah Anderson speaking to Darius Kazemi, the creator of NaNoGenMo:

    So does he believe a machine could write a truly great novel – one that transcends its own novelty? “I think bots and the meaning of what a good novel is will converge”, he says. “I don’t think we’ll have something that looks like Moby Dick but I do think we’re already writing code that is generating really excellent conceptual novels. And I’m ...

    deforest:

    I just do things I really enjoy. I enjoy acting. When I’m driving to the studio, I sing in the car. I love my work and my wife and my kids and my friends. And I think, “You’re a lucky man, Gregory Peck, a damn lucky man.”

    Adidas Aims To Look Cool Again:

    John Kell talking with Mark King, the head of Adidas North America:

    Is the design aesthetic also under review? The three-striped side — is there any thought about using that less? I don’t see runners wearing that in Central Park ever. I don’t think that’s on trend right now.

    If you look at our football cleats and basketball shoes today, very few have the traditional three stripes as prominent as in the ...

    Goofy, An OS X Client For Facebook Messenger

    Goofy, An OS X Client For Facebook Messenger:

    A couple days ago I tweeted about my desire for Facebook to build a native Messenger app for OS X. A bunch of people responded that I should try out Goofy — sure enough it’s great.

    It’s really just an app that wraps the web-based Messenger area of Facebook — but, that’s really all I want. It gives you notifications, etc. More importantly, it allows me never to open Facebook on ...

    "What the new Star Wars is selling is its original soul.":

    Katie Kilkenny:

    When Disney announced that it was releasing a new Star Wars trilogy, many fans, understandably, pumped their hands in the air and yelled “Nooooo!” What was once a cool Hollywood maverick of a saga had already been brand-extended nearly past recognition: first with the CGI-“enhanced” versions of the originals in the ‘90s, then the Jar Jar Binks-addled prequels, followed by the 3-D theatrical re-releases and a ...
