Unrequired Reading: August 6, 2010

Summer’s nearly over, dear readers! Better stock up on some Unrequired Reading!

Free Gil! (Arenas)

* * *

Costuming Inception (spoiler alert)

* * *

Words can’t do justice, so I’ll try acronyms: GFY on JLH’s TCL (spoiler alert, too, I guess)

* * *

So, wait: Charlie Chan was Swedish?

* * *

Max Headroom predicted the crappiest aspects of the future?

* * *

Craig Venter doesn’t drop f-bombs. He drops ACTG-bombs.

* * *

Dance like there’s ants in your scanner!

* * *

On second thought, let’s TCBYon’t.

* * *

Audwin P. McGee: the most interesting man in the world?

* * *

But the piece I most want you to read (I guess I should call this Required Reading, rather than Unrequired) is Christopher Hitchens’ first Vanity Fair column since he began treatment for cancer. It’s gorgeous, heartbreaking, clear-eyed and is making me really wonder what I should be doing with my writing. Please give it a read.
