What’s new? Nothing? Just the usual: work, hanging out… Yeah, I know. But this is the information age, my friends! We find, read, see new things every single day! So here are a couple things that have interested me of late:
Listening to Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin. I’m endlessly impressed with how Baldwin is able to dig deep with his famous guests, deeper than they expect in an interview. My favorite interviews (so far) are Billy Joel and Dick Cavett. Another great moment: hearing Elaine Stritch (who played his mother on 30 Rock) continuously refer to him as “Alex”.
Seth Godin wonders why “too thin, too pale and really sad” sells luxury products. Takeaway: “Part of the art of making change happen is seeing which cultural tropes are past their prime and having the guts to invent new ones.” Yep.
