* A pair of cargo pants inspired Steve Carell's aha! moment—and his aha! moment is sure to inspire you to laugh out loud. (O Magazine)

* At 62, Bruce Springsteen continues to be one of the world's best entertainers. Here's part of why he does it: "For an adult, the world is constantly trying to clamp down on itself. Routine, responsiblity, decay of institutions, corruption: this is all the world closing in.
