NYT: Why Pop’s Biggest Stars Are Staying Put for Long Residencies. “In a rebounding touring market, with concert-starved audiences buying tickets in record numbers — and at higher prices than ever — these bookings are deliberate choices by prominent artists to reduce their time on the road and set up shop in far fewer places than they could on a traditional tour.”

DHH: Let it Slide “Letting things slide is not a sign of neglect. It’s an acceptance of our finite allotment of time, motivation, skill, and knowledge.

Charles Baudelaire: Be Drunk. “You have to be always drunk. That’s all there is to it—it’s the only way.

But be drunk.” (Via Mark Slutsky’s Something Good.)
