Thursdays Are from Mars: Grown-up Harry Potter, Baseball and an Artist We Loved
Men! What are they thinking? We can't always answer that, but we'll be posting our favorite glimpses into their world in this space every Thursday.
* We were already plenty impressed with the contents of Daniel Radcliffe's bookshelf, and now the Harry Potter star has impressed us with his candor and maturity about giving up drinking in August's U.K. edition of GQ: "There's no shame in enjoying a quiet life, and that's been the realization of the past few years for me. I'd just rather sit at home and read, or go out to dinner with someone, or talk to someone I love, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh." (via Salon)
* If you, like Englishman and baseball infographic king Craig Robinson, find America's pastime "endlessly fascinating," look at a few of the stunning images included in his new book, Flip Flop Fly Ball. (Deadspin.com; Amazon.com)
* We dare you not to smile while watching this video of a recent U2 concert in Nashville, where Bono pulled a blind fan from the audience to play "All I Want Is You" on guitar. (The Vancouver Sun)
* "It's more like I'm having an experience than making a picture." — Cy Twombly, RIP (NYTimes.com)
