GROSS: What did you write today?
SEDARIS: I was on tour a few weeks ago, and I wrote this thing in this woman’s book, and I don’t know, apparently, she got upset about it. But I meant it in a good way. I must have just misunderstood. We must have misunderstood one another. And I hate the thought of anybody being angry at me like that, but… I mean, really, what I wrote in her book, it’s the filthiest thing. It’s unbelievable. Really, you cannot get any filthier than this. And that’s what I kind of liked about it, you know, as a book inscription.

You Are My Wild is a talented group of 14 photographers who publish a weekly portrait series of how they see their kids.
We talked with Meaghan Curry one of the founding members, and she gave us a little insight into how they started:
“Right after the new year, and in sort of a creative lull, we were brainstorming about starting a project to force ourselves to put down our phone cameras down and pick up our other cameras more regularly…
Ironically, Instagram is the common thread between us. It is where we found other people documenting their children in really loving, beautiful and respectful ways.”

The creator of the acclaimed AMC series talks about his protagonist — Don Draper — as an aging existentialist looking for meaning in a chaotic world. He says the show’s sixth season, set in 1968, is situated in that historical moment for a reason: to reflect a traumatic passage in Don’s life. via Matthew Weiner On ‘Mad Men’ And Meaning

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner talks to Terry Gross about Don Draper, Existentialist:
I feel like Don is like a lot of existential characters: brave in the face of death but more deeply, deeply afraid of it — and trying to find some purpose and some control over it — because he is aware of the sort of meaninglessness of life. … Let’s say existentialism is a young man’s game. As he’s getting up there, he’s saying, like, ‘Why do I keep repeating this? Why am I in this process?’

Someone remind me next year to have a 10 Things program on Shakespeare day.
I love this idea so much.
True or false: 10 Things I Hate About You is this teen generation’s Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or Sixteen Candles.

I haven’t listened to it yet, but the word around the office as it goes through the editing process is that tomorrow’s interview with Mad Men creator Matt Weiner is prettay, prettay, prettay amazing. I believe it.
Season Six of the show premiered April 7. It’s not an overstatement to say David Bianculli was giddy about it.
