Here's the most astonishing cinematic rumor I've heard in a long time: is Alfonso CuarĂ³n directing an adaptation of In Search of Lost Time?
I hope that everyone got what they wanted for Christmas! In my stocking, among other things, was a copy of Emmy Rossum's new album, which I presumably received because Santa (or one of his helpers) noticed that I watched this video way too many times...

The New York Times finally addresses an issue that Torrey and I have been arguing about for years. Except in our case, both of us would be trying to throw the softball game. Perhaps we could put it to an internet vote...one of the choices would have to be Nat's suggestion, "Manman."

In a recent issue of The Atlantic, Andrew Sullivan writes: "It’s November 2008. A young Pakistani Muslim is watching television and sees that this man—Barack Hussein Obama—is the new face of America. In one simple image, America’s soft power has been ratcheted up not a notch, but a logarithm."

I love the image and the sentiment, but come on—"a logarithm?" What does that mean? (It's worse than saying that something represents a "quantum leap"—which, as one of my former roommates never tires of pointing out, is the smallest leap there is...)
