Weekly Roundup: What To Read This Weekend


If being square is wrong, we don’t want to be right. Here’s what we’ll be reading while cozied up on the couch this weekend.

Music: The funny reasons we like listening to the same songs over and over, via WQXR.

LOL: Ever hear the one about the column dedicated to brilliant modern comedians and their best bits? Get in on the joke, via McSweeneys.

Food: On the nostalgia of maraschino cherries and why this petri-dish fruit was once considered a lawbreaking imposter, via New York Times.

Anticipation: Here’s why a new experience, like a concert, starts way before it ever happens—like, as soon as you buy the ticket, via The Atlantic.

Word: commuovere (v.; Italian): to touch someone’s heart, to move to tears.
