Ya gotta read a lot if you want to write a little. Here are some of the best things I read this past week:
"I wasn’t hearing his voice thrown in as a sound bite garnish to another host’s main dish. Instead, he was the narrator, assembling memories, images, emotions, and even speculation into his own multi-modal account. I would like to hear people who speak with voices like this young man’s voice as hosts and narrators on public radio shows and podcasts."

"The Myth of the Gay Community'"

In "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck," Mark Manson equates "Doesn't give a fuck" not to indifference, but to "doesn’t care about adversity in the face of goals, doesn’t care about pissing some people off to do what is right or important or noble."
