Any other ideas?

I have been thinking recently about curation. I am trying to do these things: 1) be more streamlined in what I listen to/read/watch so that I am only taking on that which a) has proven to be interesting to me previously b) is likely to be interesting to me in future; 2) waste less time; 3) maximise/increase the likelihood of me coming across new and interesting things.

McSweeney’s considered as:
1) The Object.
2) The Institution.
Everything else comes from this.

Saw (500) Days of Summer this week. It was nice. Peter Bradshaw’s Guardian review said it was “weirdly incurious about the inner life of its female lead.” I think he doesn’t get it. I think it is more that the film is about Tom’s failure to see the inner life of Summer. But anyway. There is a good scene with a dance in it. (It is on YouTube but you shouldn’t watch it before seeing the film.) Some of the comments on this one scene on YouTube are interesting.
