by Josh Kimball
*Mockery: Best Week Ever has been blogging in the style of Kanye, and it is amusing. To wit: BALL SCRATCHER FOR EXECUTIVE GENTLEMEN
*McSweeney’s: Reflections on Seeing Leonard Cohen Perform in Montreal on June 23, 2008. Oh look, something worth reading.
*The Bloviator: The New Yorker offers up 9 (web-sized) pages of Alec Baldwin. “My father wasn’t a violent or mean-spirited person, but he was a very strict disciplinarian in school and he knew that some of these kids only understood one thing. . . . The older I got, I learned to behave as he did, which was to not be afraid of anybody. And I’m not afraid of anybody. Wherever I go, I don’t have a drop of fear in my whole body. Never. Never.”
*Gadgets: A USB hub (with 4 ports) that looks like a cassette tape. In case you are interested in surrounding yourself completely with cassette tapes.
