"The Best NBA Doppelgängers"

"You’ll never be able to unsee these."

"Old Masters After 80, some people don’t retire. They reign."

The New York Times argues that 80 can be the new 50.

Long may it wave.

UPDATE: link fixed now. Thanks, Elliott.

"The Best Bass Riffs In The History Of Music"

"I'm gonna add some bottom so that the dancers just won't hide."

Too much Red Hot Chili Pepper and Jamiroquai but otherwise, reasonable selections

The president's press secretary gets creative. *Very* creative.

"The White House Says This Scientific Theory Explains Why It Isn't More Open To The Press".

The White House has a scientific explanation for why reporters aren't allowed to view President Barack Obama's interactions with campaign donors: The very act of observing an event can change the event's outcome. . . . 

"The goal of those q-and-a sessions is to foster a more candid and open dialogue where you have donors who are expressing their views," Earnest said. "I think it's the Heidenberg principle?"

Once again, I'm not making this up.

"Stevie Nicks Admits Past Pregnancy With Don Henley and More About Her Wild History"

Interview. 66 and still rockin'.

Link courtesy of Michael Greenspan.

"The cable networks that draw the most partisan ads aren’t the ones you expect"

What surprised me: conservatives don't advertise much on ABC Family and Comedy Central and Liberals don't advertise much on the Golf Channel.

"Why Are Publishers Giving Away Bestselling Books for Free?"

I'm giving BookBub a try. So far, it seems worth some clicks.

"Behind a NYT call to bust up Amazon"

Ira Stoll, in the New York Post, speculates on the reason for Krugman's call for antitrust action against Amazon:

It’s enough to make a cynic suspect that the Times’ panic over Amazon isn’t about online retailer’s market power or disparate treatment at all, but the fact that Amazon’s CEO owns The Washington Post, a newspaper that competes with The New York Times.

Or about the fact that the Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, reportedly has libertarian-oriented politics rather than Krugman’s statist views.

UPDATE: not to be missed is Marc Andreessen's annotation of Krugman's column.

"Obama Donor Blocks Access to Hagan Stimulus Records"

"Cronyism all the way down."

"The next time someone says, “You didn’t build that,” remind them of Fatu Kekula"

22-year-old West African woman combats Ebola by "invent[ing] her own equipment".
