Wikipedia - use of the term ‘Shipping’ (fandom).

I ran across this a while ago in a discussion about a book series; a term I hadn’t heard at the time. Thought others might appreciate the clue.

The New Yorker: Why Walking Helps Us Think.

Joyce and Woolf were writers who transformed the quicksilver of consciousness into paper and ink. To accomplish this, they sent characters on walks about town. As Mrs. Dalloway walks, she does not merely perceive the city around her. Rather, she dips in and out of her past, remolding London into a highly textured mental landscape, ‘making it up, building it round one, tumbling it, creating it every moment afresh.’

Italian Ways: Carrara’s marble quarries - setting beauty free.

Michelangelo traveled personally to Carrara to select the blocks of marble from which his mallet, punch and chisel would free masterpieces such as the ‘Pietà’, ‘David’, and ‘Moses’.”  Great selection of photos.

A Conversation On Cool: Frida Kahlo image and quote. [Great.]

I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do.

Slate: Reading insecurity - The crippling fear that the digital age has left you unable to read deep

“You should take a 20-second screen break if you’ve been gazing into your computer, smart phone, iPad, or e-reader for more than a half hour. I’ll wait. It’s OK if you don’t come back—we both know by now that most people won’t finish this article. If you do return, though, I’d like to bring up something that has been bothering me: reading insecurity.

The Observer.UK: Sam Shepard - ‘America is on its way out as a culture’.

Detroit’s a great example. All of those cities that used to be something. If you go to a truck stop in Sallisaw, Oklahoma, you’ll probably see the face of America. How desperate we are. Really desperate. Just raw.”  Great interview, the whole thing. Take the time to parse it.

HyperAllergic: British Museum Wants Someone to Update Its Website for Free.

“It is also, according to a current online listing, seeking free help on its website and other “products” from experienced coders in the guise, naturally, of an unpaid internship or ‘student placement’ with its ‘Digital Team.’”  Not as egregious as some others. No laundry list of JS tech to know.

The Atlantic: Behold - Britain’s Ugliest Building.

The architects and developers behind the project have defended the complex, arguing that they’ve created jobs, provided much-needed investment to Woolwich, and already sold many apartment units.” Sorry folks ... rests on the shoulders of the architects primarily. Secondarily on the city planners who approve such monstrosities.

HuffPo: What Neuroscience Has To Say About The ‘Tortured Genius’

The ability to imagine things, to be able to see things in your mind that don’t actually exist—everybody can do that. You don’t need to be mentally ill for that to occur.” What a relief. Still, beware the source.

Photogrammar.

Photogrammar is a web-based platform for organizing, searching, and visualizing the 170,000 photographs from 1935 to 1945 created by the United State’s Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information (FSA-OWI).” Oh, my.  Check out Santa Fe - some looks remarkably the same, but most quite different. We were a dusty little backwater!

Paris Review: What Makes a Classic Endure?

Manzoni famously announced that The Betrothed would reach only “twenty-five readers,” yet his book became a national treasure. Its inability to attract a non-Italian audience isn’t the result of its artistic shortcomings, but of the nature of its questions and themes, which simply don’t appeal to a contemporary audience.” Cross-culture is why our movies are getting dumbed-down into action flicks, with no emotional nuance.

Observer.UK: Why I love my Leica.

That kit was invented 100 years ago this year in Wetzlar, a small town in Germany, where a 35-year-old technician invented a camera that would shape the way we perceived the world for the rest of the 20th century.”  100 years of Leica, that optimal form-factor. Longer read, short for a history, eminently worth it.
