(12:00 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Friday Afternoon Confessional: Star-StuddedI confess that reading this interview with the creators of a softer world made me want to start a collaborative online art project, but Brad wasn't online at the time so I gave up on the idea. I confess that this one is one of my favorites, a trait I likely share with virtually every fan of the site.
I confess that my supposed desire to create a Weblog book may be part of my ever-more-elaborate plan to procrastinate on my dissertation. Recent steps in that direction have included the following:
- Learning a new language to read a book that will soon be available in a language I already know.
- Starting an intensive program to learn the vocabulary for a language that I need only for the sake of one text in my dissertation.
- Obtaining new piano sheet music in my first attempt to learn a new piece in over three years.
- Vaguely expanding my cooking repertoire.
I confess that I have still never had bánh mì, even though Mike recently discovered that we live like three blocks from a Vietnamese bakery. I confess that I sometimes miss Kankakee's fabled Chinese buffet, Great Wall King, which must mean I'm still a suburban midwesterner underneath my sophisticated urban trappings -- and the trappings aren't even that sophisticated!
