On "The truth is, the ten or twenty minutes I was somebody’s mother were black magic": Ariel Levy's "Thanksgiving in Mongolia"

I cannot stress enough how important it is that everyone read this. I think we've all been using the word "heartbreaking" wrong until just now.

On What's the Worst Song to Have Sex To?

"Only the Good Die Young" by Billy Joel. Just... think about it.

On When a Man Writes a Woman

I'd echo Lyra Belacqua, as the other commenters said, and add Pella Affenlight from Chad Harbach's The Art of Fielding, who is not only a phenomenally realized female character, she's a phenomenally realized female character written by a man in his first novel ever.

On Q: What Are Llamas Like? A: Everything

This is my single favorite article the Times has ever published. I desperately want to quite my job and go raise llamas for the rest of my life now. (I mean, I also did before this article ran, this just made that desire more potent.)

On What Is Your Personal Garbage Music?

Look, I love shitty pop music. LOVE it. The only two songs I've been listening to in the past 48 hours are "Blurred Lines" (I know, I know) and that terri-mazing Demi Lovato song "Heart Attack." But I will turn into a whirling, snarling rage monster if I hear so much as one bar of the fucking piece of nuclear aural waste that is "I Got a Feeling" by The Black Eyed Peas.
