I’m back from Chicago (via Madison and Milwaukee)! Time for a load of Unrequired Reading, dear readers!

Can I use Snoop’s nail-gun?

Pinko City.

I cried a little when I read this post by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Finding Nighthawks: 1, 2, and 3 and coda.

* * *

Thoughts on Hadji Murat.

And let’s end with Stephen Fry on the experience of viewing art!
