“I picked the kind of music I would hear if I went to kind of a cool coffee shop in New York or something,” he says, “I’ve always been an adult alternative kind of guy.”

Telling people you’re leaving them is the pits.

"It was like watching a troupe of amnesiacs do a weekly Brooklyn-lifestyle improvised LARP session."

"Wolf got Bradford Cox (Deerhunter/Atlas Sound) to score the film and Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw, Julia Hummer and Jessie Usher read from a mix of old diary entries and written testimony from teens he and Savage found in newspapers and books."

I can’t decide if I want to see this movie or fire it into the sun. 

"If I wasn’t an actress, I’d probably do something with food. Finding seeds, planting seeds, watching them grow, harvesting the fruits, cooking the fruits, eating them, seeing how my body reacts, and even digesting."

I wanna interview Shailene about poopin’. 

"We were sitting around drinking wine at my house one night and the idea popped up that we were somewhat like the Spanish friars,” he said. “So we put on green friars’ robes and protested the spot and claimed it as a community nature park and we got the newspapers out there and everything and it was hilarious and delightful. Then we went to a Joshua Tree saloon after and sat around in our green friar robes drinking beer and planning revolutions."

This fills me with so much hope

Facebook is the community bingo hall of social networks

Twitter is the bar nobody goes to anymore because it’s too crowded

Tumblr is the only place that doesn’t make me want to jump off a bridge

The Next Four Months Are Gonna Be Fun

Hold on to your butts, kids. 

"There’s a huge swath of new jobs created in the last three years or so. They’ll be around for… a while. Who knows how long! (Can’t wait till Vox goes public though!) It’s good, obviously, that young people have jobs where they can get some learnin’ and get paid and maybe write some things they care about. What I’ve noticed the last couple months though is that once they have that job for a year or three, there’s now nowhere for them to go. The requests for coffee dates I’m getting these days are less “How do I become a writer or reporter?” and are more “Okay I’ve been doing this a couple years now, and there’s literally nowhere for me to advance, what do I do?” You’re seeing longevity in blogging jobs for the first time ever since we created professional blogging. It’s not a job that one ages well with, for the most part. I mean, you go make cat gif listicles when you’re 50. Try that on for size."

Seriously, Choire for President.
