This weekend, I very tentatively switched from relying on Gmail’s web interface and mobile apps to using Mailbox. (My hatred of change and confidence in my previous system lost out to the appeal of the new and my longtime desire for a well-designed desktop mail app.)

I wouldn’t mention it except that doing so has revealed to me how much I rely on email to manage my life, and how the systems I’ve created have become ingrained in my brain. I feel like I’m literally trying to reprogram myself. It’s weird, to be on the inside of it, feeling like the machine is me.

And I don’t even have a futurewatch!

Ugh, fake Gamera girls.

My co-workers and I realized that something was missing from “Aquarius.” So I borrowed Pornstache’s stache and fixed the problem.

This is what leads to one of the things that proves most fascinating about “Boardwalk Empire”: The fact that one of its greatest strengths — its large, compelling ensemble of actors — is also one of its primary weaknesses. It’s not that “Boardwalk” isn’t ruthless when it comes to killing off people — every episode seems to contain at least two or three surprising moments of bloodletting, often via unexpected murder weapons or secretly stashed guns. But since the surprise death of Jimmy (Michael Pitt) in Season 2, the show has kept on characters for far longer than essential, to the point where, in this final season, characters are scattered far and wide across the Eastern United States (and Cuba!), with few clues as to how some of them will ever reconnect. Seriously, in the fifth season, Michael Shannon, Michael Kenneth Williams and Kelly MacDonald occupy storylines separated so far apart, geographically and narratively, that it makes “Game of Thrones” look like a workplace sitcom.

What Makes ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Great, And What Keeps It From Breaking Out?

My project this week was figuring out Boardwalk Empire as best I could. Consider the Game of Thrones zing a bonus.

I went to the beach yesterday and it was really beautiful and fun, but all I have to show for it is this shitty, pedestrian picture with the goddamn umbrella in the way. 🚫🎨

Needs a director’s chair. And a remote control. (Today in “jokes only me and my former boss will get”….)

Why is this photo not the cornerstone of The Blacklist's marketing campaign? Why is it not FRONT AND CENTER IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF AMERICA? I mean, I have been hearing about this show for OVER A YEAR. But THIS is the one thing that actually now makes me want to watch it.

On the left is a paragraph from the New York Times about Mike Brown’s “troubled” teenage years; on the right is a paragraph from Rolling Stone about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the Boston Marathon bombers.
What could possibly account for the difference in presentation of these two teenagers?
And let’s remember that one was unarmed when he was shot to death by a police officer who stopped him for walking in the street after allegedly stealing some cigars and pushing a store clerk, while the other was taken alive after allegedly setting off a bomb at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing a police officer, engaging in a shootout with a host of other police officers, and then hiding from a full-scale manhunt.

There’s some line editor up in the Times building right now, pondering whether they did enough editing on this piece.
