Welcome to the Sunday Evening Post.
Oh boy every time it seems like my cup is filled right up it ends up filling up just a bit more. ”I just see you being more useful based in the United States.” - my company’s president. This is the sort of thing one doesn’t really want to hear after doing China stuff for a year. Have I been screwing it up all along? (yes)
I slapped this together at midnight so my apologies if it isn’t too good. Actually, no apologies. Those beautiful, literally DOZENS of readers can handle it.
So is tumblr owned by Yahoo now? No link, because laziness. Over one billion dollars CASH?! YAHOO?! YAHOOO?!?!?!
Because the first time you put an olive in your mouth is something you truly never want to forget.
Thanks, Paris Review, for consistently being the best and making me forget about reality for a few brief moments to revel in the miserable existence of someone else (who isn’t real).
SONG OF THE WEEK
Well well well, look at this. If you are on the music blog scene eve 1% you already have this song as it blew up within minutes of being uploaded on SoundCloud. Otherwise, get it now. Solid stuff.
Look at this
The title really does seem to sum this one up pretty well.
In all likelihood you read this already and rolled your eyes so hard that you needed surgery to place them back in their correct alignment. What a waste of bandwidth. In so many ways.
The Stacks, a Deadspin project, popped up out of nowhere for me. Probably because I don’t actually read Deadspin. But they could probably end up giving Grantland a run for their money on cool sports coverage, especially if they continue to bring awesome classic writing like this back to digital life.
While reading this article, also from Deadspin, see if you can pick up on the ever-so-subtle bias of the author.
(please note the heavily layered digital sarcasm)
Must read of the week, by leaps and bounds. You read this article right now. I thought I had a decent understanding of how this all went down (after reading the Daily Mail for the days following the incident), but this tosses so many layers on top as well as making me understand Pistorius as a person rather than just “some guy who runs fast”. Amazing coverage.
