  • NPR: In praise of Slow Food

  • I remember Ryan Adam’s New York, New York video a few days after September 11th on VH1, but forgot how much I enjoyed seeing it. Maybe I am wierd this way, but for those four minutes of watching that footage shot of Manhattan from across the water (he must be singing on either the shore in Jersey or in Brooklyn, I’m not sure which) just 4 days before the attacks, I can imagine that those towers are still standing, and the people are going up and down the giant escalators in the basement after getting off the PATH train from New Jersey, and that everything is at peace. I really like the song and I really, really like the video. If you haven’t seen it, you ought to.
