The “Nathan for You” Finale, My New Favorite Love Story | The New Yorker
"As Nathan and Bill’s quest unfolds, and the story about long-lost romance quickly descends into a series of bunko schemes, Bill’s feelings for Frances come into question. His is worse than a case of unrequited love. It’s nothing. The dream evaporates in some acrid vapor. But, almost as suddenly, a new dream is born."
...
"I’m starting to see my own life as an experiment in Nathan Fielder’s weird business curriculum. Years ago, for instance, when I was an out-of-work filmmaker, I got a job as a private investigator. In order to get information in one investigation, I had to pose as a filmmaker. I remember the internal confusion this caused, the internal monologue: 'But I am a filmmaker. But I’m also posing as one, because in this context no one can know that I am a filmmaker.' It’s not exactly that I was pretending to be something that I wasn’t. I was pretending to be something that I no longer was but would eventually be again. Still, a kind of uneasiness ensued."

The Unsettling Vision of Rei Kawakubo - The New Yorker
In Kawakubo's voluminous clothes one felt provocative yet mysterious and protected. They weren't sized, they weren't conceived on a svelte fitting model, then inflated to a sixteen. Their cut had the rigor, if not the logic, of modernist architecture, but loose flaps, queer trains, and other sometimes perplexing extrusions encouraged a client of the house to improvice her own style of wearing them. ... these 'multiple open endings' were a tactic for liberating female dress from an 'omniscient male narrator.'"

Trump Days - The New Yorker
"Standing in line at the pharmacy in an Amarillo Walmart superstore, I imagined some kid who had moved only, or mostly, through such bland, bright spaces, spaces constructed to suit the purposes of distant profit, and it occurred to me how easy it would be, in that life, to feel powerless, to feel that the local was lame, the abstract extraneous, to feel that the only valid words were those of materialism ('get' and 'rise')—words that are perfectly embodied by the candidate of the moment."

After the Fact - The New Yorker
"An American Presidential debate has a lot more in common with trial by combat than with trial by jury, which is what people are talking about when they say these debates seem 'childish': the outcome is the evidence. The ordeal endures."

"When we Google-know, Lynch argues, we no longer take responsibility for our own beliefs, and we lack the capacity to see how bits of facts fit into a larger whole. Essentially, we forfeit our reason and, in a republic, our citizenship."

The Sensualist - The New Yorker
"Seducing another man’s wife could be forgiven; a bad poem, clumsy handwriting, or the wrong perfume could not."

"In Chapter 4, titled 'Yugao,' Genji comes across a run-down house, the abode of a young woman he is about to seduce.

Waley describes the entrance like this: 'There was a wattled fence over which some ivy-like creeper spread its cool green leaves, and among the leaves were white flowers with petals half-unfolded like the lips of people smiling at their own thoughts.'

Seidensticker: 'A pleasantly green vine was climbing a board wall. The white flowers, he thought, had a rather self-satisfied look about them.'

Tyler: 'A bright green vine, its white flowers smiling to themselves, was clambering merrily over what looked like a board fence.'

Washburn: 'A pleasant-looking green vine was creeping luxuriantly up a horizontal trellis, which resembled a board fence. White flowers were blooming on the vine, looking extremely self-satisfied and apparently without a care in the world.'”

The List - The New Yorker
“High school was bliss for me,” DuBuc said recently. “I tried not to dwell on the stuff that wasn’t good.” But, as she was about to start her freshman year at Western Michigan University, she got a call from a close childhood friend, Victoria, who asked, “Did you know you’re on the public sex-offender registry?”

...

The [Texas sex offender treatment] plan also included a monthly polygraph ($150) and a computerized test that measured how long his eyes lingered on deviant imagery ($325). He would also have to submit to a “penile plethysmograph,” or PPG. ... Metts would be billed around $200 per test.

...

The prosecutor pushed for two years in prison... Metts’s attorney urged alternatives that would be less costly for taxpayers. None of Metts’s violations, he noted, had any connection to the original charges of sexual assault of a child. A typical mistake was failing to charge his ankle bracelet’s battery. The judge took some time to think it over. The next morning, she sentenced Metts to ten years in prison.

The Only Thing I Envy Men - The New Yorker
I like this opening:
"I have often, in the past decade or so, wanted to write something about “women writers,” whatever that means (and whatever “about” means), but the words “women writers” seemed already to carry their own derogation, and I found the words slightly nauseating, in a way that reminded me of that fancy, innocent copy of “Little Women” that I had received as a gift as a child but could bear neither to look at nor throw out. What was I going to say?"

The Origin Story of Marie Kondo’s Decluttering Empire - The New Yorker
"I asked if [Tsuzuki] agreed that the March, 2011, tsunami inspired people to winnow their possessions to the essential, and that Kondo’s book stepped in as the perfect guide. He was skeptical. 'It looks to me,' he wrote, 'that we are entering a cheap, functional, no-character goods decade in Japan. Uniqlo, Muji, and all those corporations became really huge, and our daily life is filled with their merchandise... You wear them for a season, then throw them away. I think this trend helped [Marie Kondo’s] success much more than 3.11.'”

Miami is Flooding - The New Yorker
“We have a triple whammy,” [Obeysekera] said. “One whammy is sea-level rise. Another whammy is the water table comes up higher, too. And in this area the higher the water table, the less space you have to absorb storm water. The third whammy is if the rainfall extremes change, and become more extreme. There are other whammies probably that I haven’t mentioned."
...
“I have called the city of Miami,” the first sister said. “And they said it’s just the moon. But I don’t think it’s the moon anymore.”

Conversion via Twitter - The New Yorker
"When Brittany Murphy died, Phelps-Roper had seen the disparity between her reaction and that of the rest of the church as a sign that something was wrong with her. Now the contradiction of her mother’s glee and her own sadness made her wonder if something was wrong with the church."

Cover Story: All Together Now : The New Yorker
"Steve Jobs, along with whatever else we’re crediting to him, should be granted the patent on converting the universal human gesture for trying to remember something from looking above one’s head to fumbling in one’s pants pocket.
...
"Sometimes, I’ve noticed with horror that the memories I have of things like my daughter’s birthday parties or the trips we’ve taken together are actually memories of the photographs I took, not of the events themselves, and together, the two somehow become ever more worn and overwrought, like lines gone over too many times in a drawing. The more we give over of ourselves to these devices, the less of our own minds it appears we exercise, and worse, perhaps even concomitantly, the more we coddle and covet the devices themselves. The gestures necessary to operate our new touch-sensitive generation of technology are disturbingly similar to caresses."

Amy Poehler: “Take Your Licks” : The New Yorker

Rachel Aviv: The Science of Sex Abuse : The New Yorker
“So you’re just willing to lie to a psychologist to appease them?” a prosecutor asked another inmate, Michael Riedel, who claimed that he had inflated the number and nature of his sex crimes. “They wouldn’t believe me when I said ‘one,’ ” he responded, “so what am I supposed to say?”

Recently, three prisoners at Butner wrote an anonymous thirteen-page report critiquing the Butner study, which they said had been “repeated so many times as to become fact in many places and in many minds.” Hernández, too, has publicly expressed concern about the way in which his study has been embraced by politicians and law-enforcement officials, warning that the scientific research is still “in its infancy.” But the study, because it confirmed a natural suspicion, has generated its own momentum. “The idea of this one-to-one correspondence—if you are attracted to children, you will act on it—is now a widespread misconception,” Michael Seto, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, told me.

In 2011, Seto reviewed the only six studies he could find that drew on the self-reports of child-pornography offenders and found that the Butner study was a “statistical outlier.” The study had provided a politically expedient answer to a social dilemma that, upon further examination, was still ambiguous. In Seto’s review, roughly half of child-pornography offenders admitted that they had sexually abused at least one person. The difference between the two groups, Seto said, was that those whose deviant activity occurred only online did not have the antisocial traits, like lack of empathy and impulsiveness, that are common to all types of criminals. They represented a new species, “fantasy offenders,” Seto said. “In this weird, disinhibiting space, which lacks the usual social cues, they may do and say things they would never dare in real life.”

Aimee Mann on How to Be Happy : The New Yorker
Mann thought that happiness was only possible if you didn’t pursue it. “You have to be in acceptance,” she said. “Events of life are mostly not personal, and you can’t take it personally.” She added there was no point in asking why certain things happen. “We don’t get to know why.”

Street of the Iron Po(e)t, Part III: Henri Cole's Paris Diary : The New Yorker
"In French, one can say Je suis seul (I am alone) or Je me sens seul (I feel alone), but nothing as baldly distressing as “I am lonely” or “I am lonesome.” Or, even worse, “I am a loner.” ... I hate having to apologize for, or defend, inwardness. It was the American poet Marianne Moore who said that solitude was the cure for loneliness, but if I spend too much time alone, I am called égoïste, or selfish. Surely, it is impossible to be a writer without being égoïste."

"In another minimalist work—“Untitled” (Perfect Lovers)—identical clocks are displayed barely touching one another on a light-blue wall. A letter that Gonzalez-Torres wrote to his partner, who died before him, explains one potential meaning of the work: “Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us. We imprinted time with the sweet taste of victory… We are a product of the time, therefore we give back credit where it is due: time. We are synchronized, now and forever. I love you.”"

The Amanda Palmer Kickstarter Scandal : The New Yorker
"The outrage over this incident is, however, more complicated than it might at first appear. It’s entangled with the current debate about wealth inequality that has animated both the Occupy movement and the Presidential campaigns: the sense that even newly minted haves, like Amanda Palmer, really need to treat have-nots, such as local musicians, a whole lot better. Thus a long-standing music-biz scam (Chuck Berry’s ill use of local musicians is the stuff of industry legend) suddenly takes on the aspect of plutocrat and prole in a contemporary drama. It only adds piquancy that Palmer adopted the posture of the moustache-twirling boss. As she told the New York Times, 'If my fans are happy and my audience is happy and the musicians on stage are happy, where’s the problem?'"
...
"In general, there is a boom in such practices that seems tied to the digital era; you can't spell Internet without intern."
...
"As a society, we’re supposedly committed to the principle that workers, the poor, those struggling to get by, deserve a share of the wealth for practicing their craft. But we also believe that investors and owners deserve returns on their equity. What we gloss over is the irresolvable contradiction between those two things. In general, the Amanda Palmer investor will in fact be in favor of paying the musician in hugs, since that would maximize their own return: intensified exploitation of the string section should lead to more hand-knitted cassette tapes showing up in the mailboxes of the twenty-four thousand eight hundred and eighty-three backers who ponied up."

If a Clown : The New Yorker
If then the clown said to you
that he was on his way to a kid’s
birthday party, his car had broken down,
and he needed a ride, would you give
him one? Or would the connection
between the comic and the appalling,
as it pertained to clowns, be suddenly so clear
that you’d be paralyzed by it?
And if you were the clown, and my friend
hesitated, as he did, would you make
a sad face, and with an enormous finger
wipe away an imaginary tear? How far
would you trust your art?

Why I Love Marilynne Robinson : The New Yorker
"'On some impulse, plain exuberance, I suppose, the fellow jumped up and caught hold of a branch, and a storm of luminous water came pouring down on the two of them, and they laughed and took off running, the girl sweeping water off her hair and her dress as if she were a little bit disgusted, but she wasn’t. It was a beautiful thing to see, like something from a myth. I don’t know why I thought of that now, except perhaps because it is easy to believe in such moments that water was made primarily for blessing, and only secondarily for growing vegetables or doing the wash.'

SWINGING MODERN SOUNDS #30: What Is And Is Not Masculine - The Rumpus.net
"The hip crowds who liked the swagger of 'fake jazz' dematerialized in New York City rather quickly when the Lounge Lizards became more complex. The fault here would seem to lie with the audience, with the 'known world, basically,' with the kinds of audience members who wanted to 'sleep with' Lurie or 'punch him in the face,' which is to say the heartless and artless and celebrity-afflicted, the profile writers, the would-bes, but nevermind.
...
"'Mystery illness' sounds a great deal like it is blaming the victim, an interpretation that becomes increasingly obvious when the day on which Lurie fell ill is more noteworthy, in Friend’s profile, for his concerns about penile size than his illness. ...Is there no attempt, by the reporter to look into chronic Lyme and to attempt to understand it? Are all sufferers with 'fibromyalgia' just neurotic women who need to lighten up and enjoy life?
...
"Because strange details are a kind of modesty, they are Lurie refusing to dwell on the painful stuff in conversation. It’s in the music, yes, high feeling is always in the music, is always confronted there directly, not in words, but in music and its capacity for high feeling, and that is lost on Friend, because the music is lost on Friend, who considers it 'borderline annoying,' and undestined to sell lots of copies. More copies would mean more interest would mean closer to the movies, or a cinematic level of cultural penetration, which would mean bingo!"

The Use of Poetry : The New Yorker
"Her bucolic name in this connection intrigued him. He thought of a generous strapping lass, manure-streaked, astride a tractor—and then did not think about her again. The term ended, he went home, his mother died, and the summer was lost to grief and boredom and numbing, inarticulate silences at home with his father. They had never discussed feelings before, and had no language for them now. Once, when he saw from the house his father at the bottom of the garden, examining the roses too closely, he was embarrassed, no, horrified, to realize from the tremors of his father’s shoulders that he was weeping. It did not occur to Michael to go out to him. Knowing about his mother’s lovers, and not knowing whether his father knew—he guessed he did not—was another impossible obstacle."

NBC's "Whitney" and CBS' "2 Broke Girls" : The New Yorker
"The problem is that 'Whitney' is a terrible show, though in ways that resonate with our culture’s debates about women and humor..."

"...Women are conniving and dull. The show feels startlingly retro and cruel... Yet in later episodes of 'Whitney' the mood becomes less caustic (you can practically hear the network notes), which only makes things worse. Whitney’s boyfriend calls her his 'best friend,' the audience awws, and the show, which has so little heart, loses even its cold, dark soul, as Whitney morphs from Lucy into Harriet, the patient and boring wife."
