On Nation Loses Game By Default

Jimmy John's are the only ones who sound like they're actually watching the game. I'd buy something from them - whatever it is they sell.

On The Collage Artist

Listening to it right now and it's both incredibly silly and beautiful at the same time. Like a lot of great pop music.

On The Hipster Retail Crisis

My best friend's wife was just made president of Urban Outfitters. Think she has her work cut out for her though.

On Ruth Reichl On David Foster Wallace's "Consider The Lobster": "He Argued Over Every Edit"

@Matthew Phelan They were just very sensitive about it given their history. I was in the art dept so couldn't tell you any details, it just became a running joke: "Oh, Ben has reviewed another WWII book! Ad sales will be pissed!"

On Ruth Reichl On David Foster Wallace's "Consider The Lobster": "He Argued Over Every Edit"

I worked at The Atlantic when Wallace wrote a (terrific) feature for them about talk radio. According to our managing editor he was a sweetheart to deal with.

True: Whenever the books section reviewed something about WWII or The Holocaust (which was often), BMW pulled their ads for that issue.

On Bob Hoskins, 1942-2014

Sadly there is no video of his performance as Nathan Detroit on stage in the 80s but he was great in that too.
