Someone made a montage of Star Trek ladies to that insane Sarah Brightman Song. h/t The Toast.

That song is crazy! It totally sounds like Xanadu-era Olivia Newton John, too.

Only Living Boy In New York //  Dan Wilson

This is a pretty great tribute to Paul Simon.

I really love this song, and he does a wonderful version of it. Worth a few listens.

Napa Valley Balloons’ trips take off before sunrise, when the wind is calm.

We lived in Napa when I was in high school, and the balloons used to pass over our house. Our dog would bark at them. :)

…..

I’ve waited six seasons for the narrow world of the “chattering class" to catch up to the Frederator/CN production of Pendleton Ward's Adventure Time. And though our friends at Cartoon Network appreciated the show enough to put it on their network, they never really understood that AT is, frame for frame, one of the truly great shows on television.

Of course I’m biased, and a complete soft touch, but which of the “big” modern dramas accomplishes their depth without having a completely unredeemable hero. Adventure Time is easily the equal of Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Justified, and the others, but Finn, its star, is a kind, generous, happy man/boy. Just like his creator. 

Emily Nussbaum in today’s New Yorker totally understands what you already know: “It’s beautiful and funny and stupid and smart, in about equal parts, as well as willing to explore uneasy existential questions, like what it means to go on when the story you’re in has ended.” 

Read it, nod your head, and please pass it on to all those people who look at you blankly.

CASTLES IN THE AIR

"For Jamieson and Howard, plagiarism is not the product of unethical student behavior; rather, students plagiarize most often because they have an inadequate understanding of how to use secondary sources in their writing. Instructors have to do a better job of teaching students not only how to properly cite others’ work in their own writing, but also how to distinguish good sources from bad. Even more importantly, we need to help students understand the value of proper research, how to read sources critically, and how the best scholarship builds on other people’s ideas."
