- Weird Al Yankovic, purveyor of pop song parodies, has written a children’s book that should be coming out soon on HarperColins. Here’s an interview on Paste, where he also talks about his forthcoming album (his 14th!) and references past forays into television and movies (clip below from UHF – a personal FPL favorite)
- Stop in to The New Yorker to read George Packer’s review of Peter Beinhart’s The Icarus Syndrome, an analysis of a century’s worth of America’s foreign policy “follies.”
- And, have you seen Inception yet? How about gaining sone inception-insight by reading a new graphic novel that serves as a prequel to the film. Read about “The Cobol Job” (from Paste).
