Thursday Morning Links
A smattering of links from around the global computerized network:
- Via The Morning News comes the Houston Chronicles' hilarious "Love Song of Patrick J. Buchanan." "I grow old, I grow old. I shall wear the tassels of my Weejuns rolled."
- Joshua Henkin, guest blogging at The Elegant Variation on the one thing that bugs him about Mad Men, "the show's unflagging insistence on reminding me when it takes place." I think I'm in agreement on that, with its pregnant mothers puffing Merit's and swilling Merlot. Still, it's a fun show.
- The Flaming Lips "Do You Realize?" has been nominated for official rock song of Oklahoma. "Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die?" Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Rah Rah Rah!
- Aravind Adiga, author of the terrific novel The White Tiger (nominated for the Booker), writes an interesting blog for The Guardian. His most recent posts recounts his efforts to rent a flat. (Check back here in the future for more Adiga related material.)
