Wonderful news! I despise the Olympics. Not the events or the athletes but everything having to do with the wildly corrupt, civic destroying organization that is the Olympics.

Now if every country also rejects FIFA we might be getting somewhere.
Nobody wants to host 2022 Olympics. Only bids remaining are Almaty, Kazakhstan and Beijing. http://boingboing.net/2014/10/02/nobody-wants-to-host-to-2022-o.html

I'm quite curious to see this in action, preferably with a piping hot cup of Starbucks over a potholed road.

This Week In Blockbusters.

If once is innovation (Star Trek Into Darkness), twice is flattery (Thor: The Dark World - pictured), then thrice is trope (Guardians of the Galaxy)

I expect to see skyscraper-sized spaceships crashing into densely populated cities with scarcely any casualties both on and off the ship for years to come now.

Wow - Taste of Chicago sure looks a whole lot different than I remember.   I'll have to dig the snow boots out before heading over.

Memo to person sitting next to me: 'Orange is the new Black' may not be the most suitable viewing material for a large tablet on a crowded train.

Memo to self: the Venture Brothers on a phone however is CTA approved.

The now-ubiquitous Summer Music Festival lineups are the Eye Chart equivalent for measuring your hipster music vision.

I can only make it to the eleventh line before losing musical clarity

Sharon Van Etten possesses a wise and knowing refrigerator.  We'd all do well to follow its advice.

Also she writes remarkable songs.  Van Etten does that is.  The fridge doesn't sing in this piece.

Another Sunday, another NYT op-ed from an Ivy League banker failing to observe that an industry paying 6 figures to a 23 year old new grad is an industry that is obscenely overrepresented in our economy for the product they provide (which in the case of modern day banking is frequently community, village, state, country, and/or world-destroying).  It was not always so.
