Oh, but please don’t! I’m all for creative sexy times, but I also work for the board of elections and I really don’t have time on election day to clean that up. Please—think of the election judges.

Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.
Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (via larmoyante)

i hate it when adults assume i’m on the internet all the time by choice. if i had enough money to travel around and etc, do you think i would be withering away my youth behind a computer screen you useless paperclip.

I dont think i have ever heard the term useless paperclip used as an insult before.

clearly you never tried to write a word document in the 90s

Edward Norton on Wes Anderson’s films:

"What I’ve loved about Wes from the get-go [is] — the whimsy, the incredible humor … but there’s always these moments of pathos that come in and sideswipe you. Every time I watch The Royal Tenenbaums, I’m laughing and laughing and then for whatever reason, as soon as there’s that scene where [Richie Tenenbaum] releases the falcon or the hawk over the city and they play that Velvet Underground song, I tear up every single time. … I can’t explain it.
I’ve come to think that a lot of Wes’ movies are about the same thing, which is maybe people struggling with the way that the family that you’re born into fails you or you don’t have the family that you want, so you go and create the family that you need. So many of the characters in Wes’ movies are essentially creating alternative communities that support them. I think there’s something really sweet in that idea.”

“She is at this moment the grande dame of female science fiction writers in the United States.”

Margaret Atwood chooses our 2014 Lifetime Achievement Medalist Ursula K. Le Guin's A Wizard of Earthsea for the Wall Street Journal’s author-guided book club.

Wow. Imagine reading Le Guin in a book club with Margaret Atwood!

Read the excerpt and then join the discussion here. 

I’ll join any book club that has Margaret Atwood as a moderator!
