The New York Times does some pretty spunky stuff. Love this backgrounder on Chris Blackwell .
Bill Murray on the last party with Gilda Radner. Read here. Tissues ready?
This video pretty much looks like a Tumblr created by a pale English teenager.
You’ll love this. Beautifully written. I wish someone would own this. That byline is totally made up. There is no Ilena Greenwood.

These are truly the greatest sox of my life. And here’s the story behind them.
Since 1987, the Lindner family has manufactured socks in Australia’s Southern Highlands. The family’s hosiery-making heritage goes back to 1921 in Thalheim, Germany. After Soviet occupation, the Lindners relocated to Neumarkt, Bavaria and in 1974, they made the socks (under licence for Adidas) worn by the World Cup-winning West German football team. When the Chernobyl disaster struck Europe, Wilfred Lindner and his wife Gisela took half the sock machines in the family factory to the other side of the world to Goulburn, New South Wales. Wilfred’s son Andrew now runs the family business. What makes their socks special? “More stitches in the heel for a better 90-degree angle,” he says, “no sliding out of place.” Orders from Thailand, USA and UK are taken over phone or email. The Lindners follow up with a phone call to make sure merchandise arrives.
