  1. The Wife loves Brooklyn Nine Nine – it’s a joy listening to her watch it in the next room while I’m watching SHIELD.
    her worry is that people will find out she likes it, and cancel it, a strange practice that had happened to every comic she’s liked as far back as Daniel Clowes’ Lloyd Llewellyn.

    I agree with you, Martha.

    If I have to choose between being happy and being cool, I much prefer to be happy.

    But I also finally discovered that being cool is like some buddhist stuff: you become so much cooler once you stop trying so hard to be cool.

    But I asure you, if I have some cooler aspects, like listening to strange bands, it’s only because I do have a genuine love of discovery and trying new stuff. It’s not because I try consciously to be some sort of rebel.
