"Is it possible to make a formal rigorous study of conspiracy theories? The task seems self-punishing, like trying to housebreak a chicken"
— Elizabeth Kolbert, "That's What You Think", The New Yorker (22 April, 2019), p 29

"Neil Armstrong was one of the few [men who walked on the moon] who had a mostly steady, unremarkable post-moonwalk life. He moved to a dairy farm and became a professor at the University of Cincinnati. Nearly a decade after his trip to the moon, he wrote a poem called 'My Vacation':

Nine Summers ago, I went for a visit.
To see if the moon was green cheese.
When we arrived, people on earth asked: 'Is it?'
We answered: 'No cheese, no bees, no trees.'

There were rocks and hills and a remarkable view
Of the beautiful earth that you know.
It's a nice place to visit, and I'm certain that you
Will enjoy it when you get to go."
— Rivka Galchen, "The Eighth Continent", The New Yorker (6 May, 2019), p 53

Neil Armstrong: confirmed adorkable

oh my g-d i just saw a call for scores that requires you to attend the conference where they're being performed but *does not even waive the conference registration fee*

"In many respects, Godzilla is hard to distinguish from Elton John. Terrible temper? Check. Professional longevity? Check. Tireless vocal vigor? Check. They even share a fondness for baseball parks as suitable arenas for their skills"

Anthony Lane, "Heavenly Creatures", The New Yorker (Jun 10+17, 2019), p 93

honestly still can't quite believe that 'fuck nazis' is now a controversial statement. if the rest of -gestures vaguely- wasn't enough to convince me, this proves that we're living in a simulation

anyway, fuck nazis
