I don’t have time to read this right now, but this is fascinating.

And now you’re swimming

November 16, 2009

Commencement address from David Foster Wallace:

There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says “Morning, boys. How’s the water?” And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes “What the hell is water?”

Journalism, yeah!

Good article about how the search of the perfect apple ended up backfiring. Slow down man, you’re killing ’em.

To write an unromantic novel

November 2, 2009

Good interview with John Updike from 1978:

Life is a very strange thing, in a way, compared to life in a novel. People in novels rather rarely eat; their health is not often of concern to them; earning money isn’t nearly as important to them as it is to those of us in the real world. In the very novel form there are distortions, variations, whereas the love life of novel characters and their personal interrelations. E. M. Forester somewhere says that people in novels are so sensitive to each other—we all kind of blunder through life, more or less dazed; yet people in novels are ever so aware of each other, and sharp. So, novels and life are not strictly equivalent.

Dead meat (see what I did there?)

October 5, 2009

Via Matt, a disturbing article about the dangers of beef:

Ground beef is usually not simply a chunk of meat run through a grinder. Instead, records and interviews show, a single portion of hamburger meat is often an amalgam of various grades of meat from different parts of cows and even from different slaughterhouses. These cuts of meat are particularly vulnerable to E. coli contamination, food experts and officials say. Despite this, there is no federal requirement for grinders to test their ingredients for the pathogen.
