Don’t care much for Old Navy. Either way, I think it is easier for a man to wear the same things over and over again. One blue suit from another blue suit isn’t as striking of a difference....

Spending my Saturday morning watching Mary Tyler Moore. Right now, they’re mocking Manischewitz wine without naming it. I’m enjoying it. It’s good to know Manischewitz has such strong brand identity—square bottle! Gross taste!

ofanotherfashion: You might not expect to find the fashion history of women of color in a book about the early days of the NASA space program in the 1950s and 1960s written by an architecture professor. But if Of Another Fashion has taught us anything it’s that the fashion history of women of color pervades…
Scott Brown on Braff's new play →
His Garden State made a hubristically deliberate bid to be The Graduate for the Exhausted Aughts — and it did, in fact, crystallize the profound self-absorption of mope-is-me Bush-age late-twentysomethings. We briefly, guiltily enjoyed Braff’s ad hoc quirk collage, his breezy use of modern anxiety as fashion accessory, his crypto-jailbait Flowers for Algernon girl-child love interest. We enjoyed...
a self-congratulatory note/but also a thanks
Hey Eat Real festival I went to over Carmageddon, I was a little annoyed that a little jar of beer was $7, not because I was so opposed to paying $7 for the beer—as it was, after all, craftsman and local, but because it was NOT delicious. I am, however, super happy it came in a jar! I finally stopped using plastic cups (even though they are made out of corn or something) at work and use...

dinosaurparty: Did you know I’ve spent over ten years learning Hebrew? I haven’t spoken it in about four or five years, but this article about the difficulty of learning Hebrew makes me feel a little better about my terrible grammar. I read this article, too. Woo Morning News! Anyways, I hereby extend my Hebrew-teaching skills in exchange for being taught some other skill. What you got,...

rawkblog: kavalierandclay: The best-seller list functions, in essence, as a restraint of trade, a visible hand that crushes the life out of the literary marketplace. If one were to magically eliminate every form of the list, in print and online, as well as all those best-seller tables in Barnes & Noble, what would happen? People would spend more time browsing a bookstore’s stock,...

good: It’s time for a new 30-Day Challenge! In July, GOOD is going to try and waste less. Way less. Like, only produce one standard grocery bag of trash per person per week. Senior editor Cord Jefferson explains: Every year the residents and businesses of Phoenix alone send one million tons of solid waste to Buckeye, Arizona’s, SR85 landfill. That’s about one ton per resident, and it’s enough...
