It’s Monday, it’s raining, and they’re filming the (live action?) Smurfs movie right outside my office window. Thankfully, The New Yorker put up some of their content online prior to my hands touching the print version. This week, Ben Greenman talks about Mike Patton, Witz gets reviewed, and oh look, Malcolm Gladwell writes what might not be a five (internet) page review of a book that I’m probably never going to read.
Somebody please confirm that this is indeed a book review and that I’m correct in thinking it isn’t worth my time.
