The Case of Loving v. Bigotry →
capucha: In 1958, Richard and Mildred Loving were arrested in a nighttime raid in their bedroom. Their crime: being married to each other. Look at them. Happy and beautiful. It wasn’t a decade later my parents wed in Boston, and the world had already changed enough that they were invited to live in a schnitzy town. It was not without its problems—progress can find obstacles...

On the matter of stretchy pants
More from the Out of Towners: …We had a good time here. The waiters were young Indian men in pressed red dress shirts and black slacks and were, as the review down in the lobby later revealed, “extremely attentive.” Jason, during the meal, I don’t mind telling you I unbuttoned the top button of my pants. The food was that good. Joan asked if I needed to buy stretchy pants...

Dave: Jase, you don't understand.
Dave: Where we live, people don't put a lot of thought into an outfit.
Dave: It's just not high up on the list of priorities in Virginia.
Dave: But when we come here, the suits! The boots!--
Me: Dave, if I may?
Me: Let me be perfectly clear.
Me: Every last one of us--
Me: Man woman gay straight--
Dave: You all appreciate women in boots.
Me: Yes. We dig the boots.
Me: In fact if there's one uniting factor among New Yorkers in winter
Me: it's the boots.
Dave: They're very groovy.

A Record Store Where Nothing Is For Sale →
oliveargyle: At the new Record Store in Seattle, you can’t buy anything. But you can listen to any of the thousands of vinyl records on display there. Visitors are encouraged to engage in the lost art of music foraging in a bricks and mortar store. There’s nothing virtual about it, no Pandora or Spotify to curate, though there will be guest DJs. Presented by Seattle Art Museum, in...

Me: Buddy the Elf, what's your favorite color?

rafimama: No wires. No boxes. No remotes. No “cable.” No “broadcast.” No “channels.” No “networks.” No “content selection screens.” No “navigation.” No “Netflix.” No “YouTube.” No “Hulu.” Just what you want to watch. And so we’re left with filaments, feathers of conversation from which to extract meaning and intention. When Steve Jobs said, “I’ve finally cracked...

superdoofus-stratodrive: I’m about to sit in a chair in a pressurized chamber and fly through the air at hundreds of miles per hour and watch movies while drinking wine for a few hours. Vaya con dios, kiddies. Show off.
dearoldlove: I was waiting to be seated when a guy passed by me. He smelled just like you. How is it that after almost 3 years, I can’t remember how you sounded or how you felt, but I can remember, as if it were yesterday, how you smell? It’s physiology (and then chemistry). The olfactory bulb is part of the brain’s limbic system; it has easy access to the amygdala (the...

Again with the sneakers. →
It wasn’t just any sneaker they were after, but the Air Jordan 11 Retro Concord, a version of the shoe Michael Jordan first wore in 1995 and was promptly fined by the National Basketball Association for failing to conform to the league’s dress-code rules. Once the model was made available to the public, it became a big seller, its black-and-white tuxedo design sometimes substituted for dress...
