  1. CD Times - Various (compiled by Chris Coco & Rob Da Bank)

    Bugger. Blue Room is the only radio I’ve regularly listened to (on Listen Again) since Peel died, and it finishes this month. The last corner of radio that felt like home. What do I listen to now? Suggestions very welcome.

  2. YouTube - skinnyCorp on CNN

    I had no idea Threadless was such big business — expecting $18-20 million in sales this year. Blimey. (via ChrisDodo)

  3. Hotwired Search

    The saddest thing I’ve seen this week (even though I first saw it a few weeks ago but completely forgot about it because I must be going senile).

  4. Improv Everywhere Mission: Slo-Mo Home Depot

    Lots of people go into a store as shoppers and, in unison, all move in slow motion. Shortly after, they all stand motionless, which is even better. (via Kottke)

  5. How to Read - Nick Hornby

    “If you don’t read the classics, or the novel that won this year’s Booker Prize, then nothing bad will happen to you; more importantly, nothing good will happen to you if you do” (via Kottke)

  6. Vimeo / everyday video clip (from Noah K.)

    A photo of himself every day for six years, made into a movie. Awesome. If he continued this into old age, until he died… wow, it would be hard to like any work of art more. Stunning. (via Kottke)

  7. The New York Review of Books: The Case for Decency

    “The belief in unity that has fueled so many utopian dreams is an effort to reconcile the irreconcilable that ends in repression. Berlin suggests we renounce this venerable faith, and learn how to live with intractable conflict.” (Subscribers only)
