What we read while eating a goddamn snack on Revis Island:
- So what’s the state of political discourse in the week after the tragedy in Tucson? Some want us to tone it down, while others think that’s a silly overreaction. Tom Junod at Esquire and Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone have each offered intriguing thoughts on the debate about debate.
- Less seems to be more in football announcing.
- CalTech: In a class by itself? Speaking of intelligence, Jeopardy may have for itself a perpetual winner.
- Only one of us still occasionally puts two spaces after a period. It’s such an editing hassle.
- Roger Ebert’s best documentaries of 2010.
- What was more awkward: Ricky Gervais’ monologue at last night’s Golden Globes, or Bill Murray’s speech to Sofia Coppola at the NBR awards?
- Shake Shack’s different locations are compared by Serious Eats.
- Agree to disagree on this one: SplitSider on why the Arrested Development is a lousy movie AND why that’s OUR fault.
- We don’t agree with all of their choices over at This Recording (there’s no way DFW is the White Swan), but this is obviously a great game…
