  1. The New Yorker

    There’s lots of pointing at the redesign but few pointing out that links look like plain text. Precious bloody designers thinking links look “ugly”, I bet. Hello? You’re making a website, not a magazine! Come join us in the 21st century.

  2. - Tom Cruise’s Starring Role in Watchmen Narrowly Averted

    Phew indeed, but there’s other interesting stuff about this inevitable project. “Your movie audience is basically where your comic book audience was when the graphic novel was written.” (via Haddock)

  3. Plantar fasciitis, heel spur, heel pain

    I’ve belatedly discovered that might be what I have (or hopefully “had”). Feeling mostly better after two weeks’ break from college and a longer break from running though…

  4. YouTube - Radiohead - Creep (1st time on tv?) 1993

    Even earlier, on Gary Crowley’s ‘The Beat’. Odd sound mix makes it sound like he’s alone in his bedroom screaming along to an underpowered stereo. Fab.

  5. YouTube - Radiohead - Creep Live 94

    I’m such an indie kid, but this was great stuff. Shivers down my spine. (via Kottke)

  6. LRB | Barry Schwartz : Stop the treadmill!

    Interesting review of what sounds like a fascinating book: ‘The Challenge of Affluence: Self-Control and Well-Being in the United States and Britain since 1950’ by Avner Offer. (Subscribers only unfortunately.)

    Today I am at home and will be mostly making a mask for college.
