"Color gives us a real license to experiment with a place, because it is so easy to apply and change. And yet there is also a lot of science and design to it."

What's your favorite memory of painting a room? Are there any other places you've claimed with color?

It's generally best not to correct the grammar of someone brandishing a club.

Goodbye to my favorite. Pack up your dinosaurs and go home.
Ray Bradbury — author of The Martian Chronicles, Fahrenheit 451, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and many more literary classics — died this morning in Los Angeles, at the age of 91.

There’s a confused and confusing debate going on over whether President Obama has presided over a “spending binge,” as Republicans claim, or whether, under Obama, “federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s.” But I'd point out that this entire conversation is nonsense.

"Human uses of color usually have a strong symbolic component. ... Color helps you to make inferences and leap to a place in your imagination."

What places convey their essence through color?

So happy to find out this was The National. Clearly there should be a "Songs of Westeros" album with other artists.
