Tomorrow I leave for Amherst, MA, where I will be working at a Great Books Summer Program. That may surprise some of you, given my distaste for core curricula and other such things, but I'm personally a big fan of the Great Books. I feel like I've blogged enough before on the topic, so I won't wear you out with another post about compulsory canons, etc. Instead, I leave you with another recommendation:
Watch Veronica Mars.
No, seriously. Watch Veronica Mars.
And if you're bored, check out Pitchfork's 100 Greatest Music Videos. I read Pitchfork rather lackadaisically, but this feature is actually really outstanding. However, to balance things out, also check out a Dartmouth alum's list of the Top Twenty-Five Music Videos.
