making macarons |
Macarons have a sort of wonder reserved for them... Their tricky preparation and French origins make them seem a little inaccessible to the home cook.... I had two macarons at a fancy pastry shop in New York a couple years ago, and decided to learn how to make them.

What good are public libraries?
Op-Ed piece: "A library once housed things that even the wealthy couldn’t get elsewhere in the city; today they offer materials that all but the poorest can get almost anywhere. More money is spent on electronic media and less on books, and more of the money that is spent on books is spent on light reading. Such books are neither expensive nor are they hard to find, and are well within the reach of the literate middle class, who are their biggest consumers. Rather than spend its money to augment what the malls offer, the libraries compete with the malls, and by doing so have less money to stock their shelves with the things that the public might need but which the malls do not sell."

A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies | MetaFilter
"The AFI's English cousin, the British Film Institute, did a brilliant thing in enlisting Scorsese--probably the most famous student of cinema in the U.S.--to open up and speak at length for this project about the history of artistic survival among Hollywood directors. Scorsese takes a highly intuitive and heartfelt approach in describing how a number of filmmakers--some famous and some forgotten--carefully layered their visions into their work, often against the great resistance or eccentric whims of powerful producers."
