I have come back to Tumblr just because Kristen Stewart said something important.

"By the way nobody knows. Nobody knows what the f—k is going on. You’re going to die. You’re going to lay next to the people that you know the most in life, the people that you’re going to grow old with. But you’re going to lay next to them in the middle of the night deeply curious about them and who they are, because nobody f—king knows anything."

- Kristen Stewart, of all people, has figured it out.

'If you make things, it's hard to hate things.'

"Having spent my adult life working in film and TV, and being a part of the weekly madhouse that is film production at Saturday Night Live, I know how hard it is to not only make something that is truly good, but how hard it is to make anything. Final products are minor miracles. People are filling e-reams of comments pages and hours of podcasts with nonstop streams of rich, delicious disdain and I’m sitting on the sidelines like a supportive parent of the kid who went 0-5 but made really solid contact, continually explaining that, ‘Hitting a curveball is really hard, you heartless bastards.’”

Many thanks to The Backlot for choosing American Aquarium Drinker as one of their top ten gay Tumblrs! I’m honored. (Though I do disagree with the assessment that I’m cynical; without the core belief that people are essentially good and want to do their best, one couldn’t possibly be disappointed as often as I am.) 

Congrats, Dave, much deserved! (Also, now that he puts it that way I’m realizing maybe I’m not that cynical either?)

Been working on this for a while, finally released today.
Think of AGOGO as SUPER SMART RADIO. Sure, it pulls all the open-web stuff you’d expect, but there’s more magic: it also contains everything that is — or should be — audio.
+ You get your favorite podcasts (hey, Maron!). + You get all the stuff siloed away in apps (NPR, KCRW, etc.) + You can connect your Spotify or Rdio or local music library. + You get personalized traffic reports based upon your route (no Citibike yet) . + You get audio versions of text stories (Page Six read to you!) + You get tv programming as audio (last night’s Madow, Daily Show!) + You get audio books. + You get livestreaming audio (sports, radio stations, etc.) + More to come…
Most importantly, it’s the first audio app that thinks in the stream. The design is slick, made for the person on-the-go.
Download the app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/agogo/id632350781.

Whoa, “TV Programming as audio” is basically LIVING THE DREAM. 
(Feature request: TV show and movie commentary tracks. If you just watched it, you don’t really want to watch it again, you just want the audio. I want to watch an episode of Breaking Bad and then listen to the commentary track the next day on the way to work.)

Lake Bell!

"I feel distracted by voices that are prevalent in our society now that have taken on that unsavory or somewhat diminutive tone, like the sexy-baby female voice. It’s difficult for me to not hear that. A friend of mine told me, you know your obsession with girls who talk like sexy babies? You have to put that into your script."

- Lake Bell is the best and I can’t wait to see In a World…
