Yesterday Was Dramatic, Today Is OK

Five OK things:

An interview with the immensely talented Marjane Satrapi.

This Sunday there will be a free showing of the silent film Nosferatu (at a Minneapolis church, of all places).

What’s Actually Keeping Us Going Is All These Different Kinds Of Love

The last 24 hours have contained equal parts brilliance and annoyance.
