Twomato Concentrate: 15 July 2015
Managers, Watchmen, and more stuff I'm thinking about.
Yo. Trying out a new feature-let here, kinda like a lunchtime-links thing, kinda like an open-thread thing. We'll see if it turns into anything. Here's what's on my mind/screen today. Let's talk about it!
Did you read Couch Baron, Q, and me on the MLB managers' hotness? You don't have to care about baseball to enjoy it.
I had questions about the Profit finale.
Speaking of: don't bother with Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself. Couldn't get through it; Lipsky gives great NPR, but the book I hoped for from that never materialized.
I'm loving Everybody Loves Our Town, though, and I just sent it to Mark Blankenship so I hope we can have a mini-book club about it. It's an oral history of grunge, which you don't have to know anything about or enjoy in order to dig the book. Probably the most balanced take on Cobain we're going to get, any road.
