Over the weekend, Bunny and I were looking at a meme which asked what your "life-changing" albums were. You know, I thought about it for a long time, and I don't think there is an album that actually changed my life. Books, yes - there are books that changed the way I saw the world, at least. But an album that totally opened my eyes to something completely new? I don't think so. Anyone else? (Of course, a lot of the respondents put weird reasons down for their picks that weren't really life-changing, so it may just be a term I'm overanalyzing.)|
Anyway. Apparently reading isn't all that, either - a lot of people fake their way through reading "important" literature. (I was pretty good about reading everything assigned, but I did give up on Faulkner. Maybe I'll get it later on in life, but not when I was in college...)
Television Without Pity has been acquired (acquired? bought? subsumed?) by Bravo. This should be interesting.
Gay's the Word, a huge bookstore in London, is in trouble. Brits, support your indie bookstores! (I've been to this store and it's great.)
If you've ever wondered what the desks of creative people look like, wonder no more!
Citizendium, which aims to be Wikipedia with more accountability, has just launched. If you fancy yourself an expert on something, take a look and consider volunteering.
Fun art time: check out these awesome 19th-century broadsides.
