I learned two new words: bershon, circuitously via YPulse (by which I mean that YPulse linked to something and that linked to something else and somehow I ended up clicking on this, and rickroll, via Jessamyn. I do not anticipate engaging in rickrolling, but I expect I’ll dig up a bershon photo or several one of these days; stay tuned. Anyone else have bershon photos to share?
I watched David Simon talking about The Wire and journalism, (warning: don’t watch if you haven’t gotten through Season Five) and I read “Shooting Britney.” The juxtaposition made me think that the only kind of journalism that’s as aggressive as Simon would like it all to be is celebrity journalism.
And I saw Laura Lippman at Powell’s and she was lovely. “I stopped writing villains,” she told us. Then I went home and read Another Thing to Fall in one sitting.
What’s new with you?
