On Memes and Misogynoir

Amazing read. You articulated so many things I had felt but never been able to express myself, very thoughtful.

On Michael Crichton's 'Sphere': The Power of Positive Thinking

I read pretty much every Michael Crichton book as a preteen, so thank you! I was so weirded out by him becoming a climate change denier though... ugh.

On Up Next: Giant Spiders

I lived in Western Australia for 5 years as a teenager and there was a gigantic spider - the biggest I've ever seen, and yellow - with a perfect (sinister) web outside my bedroom window. We tried to destroy its web a few times with a broomstick and kill it with insecticide, but it'd always be back with its perfect web the next day. I knew rationally that it couldn't break the glass in my window and kill me, but nevertheless it was terrifying.

Western Australia is like the land of giant mutant death animals.

On How Many Booker Prize Nominees Have You Read?

Wait Nicola Barker has a new book?!? I loved Darkmans.

Choire, I wish you were on Goodreads and/or gave us more reading suggestions. I'm currently finishing my first Neal Stephenson, Reamde.

On The Scourge Of Pour-Over Coffee

I'm always surprised how Brazil doesn't get any credit for this phenomenon. Pour-over coffee is what everyone does there (and everyone drinks coffee - Brazil's set to pass the US this year as the #1 coffee-consuming country in the world), so we find it pretty amusing by how trendy pour-over has become in the US recently. Just like at the names of the cafés you've cited; two of them have Portuguese names.
