This was a delightful, interesting read. Book is divided into 7? 8? 9? big sections on colour (Black, White, Blue, etc) and then within each are 2-3 page mini-chapters on 7 or so specific colours in that colour block. Lots of great history, language ...more

I like the first half of the book better than the second. Not sure if it was me, or if the first half just flowed better. Felt more interesting, more complete stories. By the time I got to the last 1/4 of the book, I was skimming just to get done. Do ...more

Kate and 4 other people liked Ben Babcock's review of Hope Never Dies:
Hope Never Dies by Andrew Shaffer
"I learned about Hope Never Dies from Twitter, and am I ever glad I did. I don’t read a lot of spoofs and parodies, but when I do, I like to read ones like Andrew Shaffer’s. It is delightful.

Joe Biden has been out of office for a while now, and whi..." Read more of this review »

Douglas Coupland
“So I got to thinking that perhaps that’s what money is: a crystallization—or, rather, a homogenization—of time and free will into those things we call dollars and pounds and yen and euros. Money multiplies your time. It also expands your agency and broadens the number of things you can do accordingly. Big-time lottery winners haven’t won ten million dollars—they’ve won ten thousand person-years of time to do pretty much anything they want anywhere on Earth. Windfalls are like the crystal meth version of time and free will.”
Douglas Coupland, Bit Rot

“Collecting and hoarding seem to be about the loss of others, while philanthropy and de-accessioning are more about the impending loss of self. (Whoever dies with the most toys actually loses.)”

Kory Stamper
“newish portmanteau of “anecdote” and “data,” “anecdata” refers to personal experiences or anecdotes that are treated like objectively collected and analyzed data.”
Kory Stamper, Word by Word: The Secret Life of Dictionaries

Kevin Kwan
“St. Germain elderflower liqueur, gin, and white Lillet mixed with grapefruit juice create this classic effervescent aperitif. Chin-chin!”
Kevin Kwan, China Rich Girlfriend

Claire Dederer
“I carefully lifted out of the pose and spoke up: "Uh, Fran? When I'm doing the pose (camel), I have this feeling in my chest, kind of a scary, tight feeling."

Fran was adjusting someone across the room. She had a way of looking like a thoughtful seamstress when she made adjustments: an inch let out here, a seam straightened there, and everything would be just right. She might as well have had pins tucked between her lips and a tape measure around her neck. Without missing a beat or looking up she said, "Oh, that's fear. Try the pose again."

Fear. I hadn't even known it was there.”
Claire Dederer, Poser: My Life in Twenty-three Yoga Poses
