The Internet Has No Weather

by Patrick on January 19, 2010

The weather has taken a turn for the absurd here in Pasadena.  Thank God I’m on the internet instead.

  • RIP Robert B. Parker.  The master of the crime genre passed away at his desk at the age of 77.  Sarah Weinman has collected a series of links for those who want to read more about the author of, among other books, the popular Spencer series.
  • Erich Segal has passed away, as well.  He was the author of Love Story, a runaway bestseller and popular movie, and coined a national slogan:  “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”  He was also a professor of classics at Yale.
  • In more cheery news:  I love books.  I love food and cooking.  I love online video shows.  Emily Gould’s show “Cooking the Books” gives me all of those things and so much more.  Her guest this time is novelist Jami Attenberg.
