Ian Crouch on "The Colbert Report" ’s end: “This week, Colbert’s message to fans has been that it is O.K. to be sad, but not too sad—after all, it’s only the television business.”

Ian Crouch on the end of “The Colbert Report”: Nine years after the show débuted, another Bush is running for President, Americans are defending torture, and we’re sending troops to Iraq. “When this show began, I promised you a revolution,” [Colbert] said. “And I have delivered. Because technically one revolution is three hundred and sixty-five degrees right back to where we were.” It was a hilariously grim observation of the world and a distillation of the Colbert persona. . .

One of the most memorable scenes in Tina Fey’s book “Bossypants” was Poehler’s: she made a vulgar joke that horrified Jimmy Fallon, who, Fey writes, “turned to her and in a faux-squeamish voice said: ‘Stop that! It’s not cute! I don’t like it.’ ” Poehler “went black in the eyes for a second,” “wheeled around,” and said, “I don’t fucking care if you like it.” Fey wrote, “Amy made it clear that she wasn’t there to be cute. She wasn’t there to play wives and girlfriends in the boys’ scenes.”

the new yorker article on twitter The #UnBonJuif tweets taken down in France that day were variations on a slur, and thousands of French users participated, racing in the viral style we all could do without. Some of the tweets might be called political (“A good Jew is a Non-Zionist Jew”). Others sound like the captions of Der Stürmer caricatures (“A good Jew can reinflate your tire with his nose”), or worse (“A good Jew is a Jew dead on the tiles”). Hatred as meme: #UnBonJuif

110814_0435_TheFortress1.jpg , The Fortress of Solitude , Despite the novel's length of 511 pages, its focus on the music of its period would make this a natural for musicalization. The resulting show is an unusual stage work blending time and space, realism and magic, and exploring themes of race and gentrification, culture and self-discovery, fathers and sons, and how music defines the generation we live in. The music and lyrics in Friedman's magnificent and complex pastiche score includes pop, rock, rhythm & blues, soul, punk, hip-hop and heavy metal. While the musical doesn't entirely reach its goal as of now, it is most of the way to being an extraordinary new theater work. In defining a community and a generation through its music, it attempts to create a new form of musical. , Victor Gluck
