Gynomite’s Reading Room!

The Singles soundtrack turned 20 years old, and if you don’t celebrate with a bullet to your head, instead read this post! Cameron Crowe caught the Seattle grunge wave just as it was cresting. Plus, the movie holds up, and the parts that don’t will amuse you.

Kumail and I use our podcast, The Indoor Kids, as a jumping off point to discuss peeing in public stories.

Absolutely essential reading: this post about being busy, and how detrimental it can be. Here’s a quote- “Idleness is not just a vacation, an indulgence or a vice; it is as indispensable to the brain as vitamin D is to the body, and deprived of it we suffer a mental affliction as disfiguring as rickets.”

Read up on the Leap Second and what it did to break the Internet Saturday night.

And in a similar vein, Julieanne, one of my favorite people anywhere, wrote this about being phone and Internet-less for a week- at xoJane!

El-P and my girl Zola Jesus bring the house down at Conan, with Zola bringing the extra weirdness. This girl is the modern-day Siouxsie Sioux.
