  • Jack Antonoff: New Jersey is a wonderful place specifically because of its proximity to the greatest city in the world. And that's why it's so special. Everyone from New Jersey always feels like they're looking into the window of the party.
  • Marc Maron: Right. But you can leave the party. Unlike people who are stuck at the party forever.

Still pretty proud of my response to this.

I loved Marvel comics when I was a kid; I was a weird kid who didn’t get down with macho stuff, in part because of the general scene in my house & in part because I was scrawny and couldn’t really front like I was tough. In my tiny limited-to-my-personal-friends-and-surroundings comics scene, the idea that macho norm-enforcer types could be into comics would have come as a huge and deeply disappointing surprise; comics, in my mind, were for people who’d already begun to sense that, in the immortal words of Anti-Flag, “their system doesn’t work for you.”
I hope Marvel systematically “ruins” absolutely every one of their legacy characters forever, one after another, and then D.C. runs a Sgt. Rock miniseries where he renounces violence as a means of conflict resolution. May the grousing of the macho comics dudes ascend to Heaven forever and make an acceptable sacrifice unto Galactus

Happy birthday, Ernest Hemingway!

Here’s a collection of photographs of the iconic writer with the animals he loved.

(via overlookpress)

The chances that you are you are about 1 in 400 trillion…This takes into account the chance of your parents meeting out of all the people on the planet, the chance of them reproducing, the chance of you being born in the exact moment that you were, and every other wildly improbable factor that goes into each individual person. The whole point of [Mel Robbins’] crazy calculation was that we should take the sheer improbability of our own existence as a kick in the butt to get out of bed in the morning. If you hear this fact as discouraging - that you’re only one in billions - then flip the script. You are one in billions! Someone has to succeed, so it might as well be you.

If you need a job and someone offers you a job, take the job. Working is better than not-working. Then, four years later, start your own media empire with someone you met on the Internet.

Mallory Ortberg, “How to Work for the Enemy and Feel Just Fine” // Interview for The Awl by Matthew J.X. Malady (via velocipedestrienne)

I would like Mallory to write a book called “How to be Mallory Ortberg” and then I will buy it, read it, and memorize it.
