I used to put up songs all the time. Here’s one, for old time’s sake.

One of the biggest reasons I was a Detroit Pistons fan as a kid (along with the facts that I spent 5 years or so living outside Detroit, and that my favorite player was Grant Hill, and that I was pretty sure he lived 8 minutes from my house) is that if, say, you’re brushing your teeth while wearing your favorite Grant Hill jersey and you steal a glance at yourself in the mirror, you get the greatest backwards sports team name of all: SNOTSIP.

Surely we can all hold hands and shimmy back and forth to this prettiest and most Sufjanly of all renditions of the Star-Spangled Banner. It’s what Uncle Sam would want us to do. (I know, I know, he wanted us for the U.S. Army, but that was 1917; who of us wasn’t on that bandwagon?)

"When you believe in magic, you can never be wrong. You can only be misinterpreted. You can never be defeated. You can only be undone by divine might of nature itself. And you never have to apologize. It wasn’t you. It was magic."

Ta-Nehisi Coates, on the misguided idea that Obama win the election because of Hurricane Sandy.  (via theatlantic)

In Focus: Hurricane Sandy: The Aftermath 

As the remnants of Hurricane Sandy dissipate over northern Canada, the full scale of the damage left in her wake is becoming apparent. At least 56 people in the U.S. were killed and another 67 in the Caribbean. Cost estimates have ranged as high as $60 billion so far. More than 4 million people remain without power, as crews from across the country converge on the Northeast to restore electricity. Hard-hit sections of New York and New Jersey have begun cleanup, with some restoration of transit and services. The morning commute into Manhattan today was chaotic, as many New Yorkers attempted to return to work by car — many were turned back due to an order that inbound cars carry at least three people. Collected here are images of Sandy’s trail of destruction in New York and New Jersey. See also the earlier entry: Hurricane Sandy: After Landfall.
