Here are 10 things I thought were worth sharing this week:
- My little piece â€œHow To Support An Artist You Loveâ€ popped up a bunch of places this week without attribution. Seems like an appropriate time to link to another piece: â€œCredit Is Always Due.â€
- I went on a Saul Steinberg a couple of days ago: here's a terrific video of him drawing and talking about his work.
- I wrote something about the undersung work and wisdom of Steinberg's wife, the artist Hedda Sterne.
- I love, love, loved James Sturm's comic about art and commerce, Market Day.
- Brian Eno's concept of â€œscenius,â€ or communal genius.
- Ed Piskor's comic book history of rap, Hip Hop Family Tree.
- Record store employees keep a notebook of customers who say the darndest things.
- A best picture Oscar winner that holds up: No Country For Old Men.
- A meditation teacher on surviving a plane crash.
- RIP Leonard Nimoy and RIP comedian Harris Wittels â€”here's a remembrance from Wittels' friend and Parks and Recreation co-star, Aziz Ansari.
