interesting meditation on the mixtape as a pivotal element in the shifting media landscape
In the ways we created and consumed mixtapes, we find the earliest glimmers of the social media experiences of today

wondering what people thought of Leon Wieseltier's piece in this weekend's NYTimes Book Review.
http://www.nytimes.com/…/bo…/review/among-the-disrupted.html
my sense is that while it can be dismissed as an unintentional epitaph for an age gone missing, there is value hidden in the nostalgia. indeed, what do we want to take with us as we leave the print era for destinations unknown?

+bob stein  Yes, unheimlich. I guess I'd argue that rather than "singing" she's doing an impression of Billie Holiday - just reproducing the sounds - which, after all, any CD player can do as well (which is obviously not to denigrate her singing talent). But I think if she were doing an equally impressive simulation of, say, Miley Cyrus or Madonna or even Maria Callas it wouldn't have the same disturbing effect because our response to Billie Holiday is so entwined with our knowledge of her personality and history that the sense of authenticity of the performance is so important. Watching it made me think a lot about the tension between authenticity and artifice

Wonderful piece in today's Washington Post about Ashton Applewhite 
“Why should I accept the notion that the present-day me is inferior to the younger me?”

provocative and well-worth the read.
To paraphrase bell hooks: there is little point making women equal to men when not all men are equal.

everyone will have their quibbles with this list, but overall it's smart and worth the attention

It's a thought provoking list, Bob!  Since I feel that way after reading it online, my answer to Number 25 must be no . . . X-D

very very disappointing. a wine bar with only 3 white wines by the glass and not many more reds. my fish was so over-cooked as to be tough and the mushrooms it was served with were cold.
