12 Ways to Fall Madly in Love with Life By falling in love with life, we fall in love with ourselves (and vice versa). When we fall in love with ourselves, we can access our true potential because we become willing to give ourselves the experiences, practices and beliefs that allow us to succeed and give us the self-acceptance to rebound when we fail. If we don’t fall in love with life and ourselves, then we fall into the perpetual wheel of self-sabotage, struggle and suffering.

s Beware of the Blog: Listener Kliph's Posts "The Mob was an integral part of everything." - Comedian Jackie Curtiss "I worked for a lot of gentlemen of that persuasion over the years. I learned a long time ago when I worked for Frank Costello in New York - don't ask questions." - Comedienne Rusty Warren Paris Review Daily - Blog, Writers, Poets, Artists - Paris Review Donald Barthelme would’ve been, and should be, eighty-three today. It would be an exaggeration to say that I feel the absence of someone whom I never met—someone who died when I was three—but I do wonder, with something more than mere curiosity, what Barthelme would have made of the past twenty-odd years. These are decades I feel we’ve processed less acutely because he wasn’t there to fictionalize them: their surreal political flareups, their new technologies, their various zeitgeists and intellectual fads and dumb advertisements.

Directory of Online Literary Journals A resource for readers and writers alike, the Review 31 Directory is a listing of English-language online literary journals. This listing also includes some print journals that offer significant online content. www.3ammagazine.com Founded: 2000, Paris Roundtable - Lapham&#8217s Quarterly Elias Altman Miracles and Manure: Notes on “Revolutions” Tags: introductions, Revolutions, Roundtable, Spring 2014 It's a popular dismissal of revolutions to say that they always end in the tyranny they sought to overthrow. What use is the whole bloody mess if the oppressed becomes the oppressor? Fair enough, but the former tyranny had also ended in tyranny, and holding too dearly to the inevitability hypothesis resembles writing off the project of birth by proving the surety of death. Still, what's in between can be solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short, particularly in the early years of a brave new world. Things have to get worse before they get better, we're told.

Grub Street’s Restaurant Power Rankings: A New Momofuku — OMFG Welcome to Grub Street's weekly survey of the most-talked-about, must-visit restaurants in New York City. The list below features spots both new and old ranked according to one important, ever-fluctuating (and admittedly subjective) metric: Who has the most buzz? Perhaps a famed chef has taken over the kitchen, or there's a new dish you absolutely must order. Maybe the restaurant is just brand-new, or the critics are raving about it.

s Beware of the Blog The unusual, obscure and fascinating trips to my reel to reel collection, and the offbeat, unknown and one-of-a-kind records from the archives will wait until another day and another post. My hero is gone. Pete Seeger, 1919-2014. For my money, the best singer ever recorded, and that I've ever heard anywhere.

Yet the literary world occupies a decent-sized space on the web. Readers, writers, publishers, editors, and everybody in between are tweeting, Tumbling, blogging, and probably even Vine-ing about their favorite books. In case the demise of Google Reader threw your literary Internet browsing into a dark void, here’s a list of 25 book sites to bookmark. The Millions

Top 10 Literary Websites: 2013 edition! In 2010, I wrote the most popular post on Category Thirteen, ever. I listed my Top 10 Literary Websites and, apparently, people really dug that topic — enough, at least, that they ended up on my site and must’ve told others about it. Well, it’s 2013 and I’ve realized something: I was a slacker for 2011 and 2012 (among many other things, obvi.). So, in the spirit of giving people what they want, I’ve updated my list and am pretty damn excited about it! Let’s take a look my top 10 literary websites, and by 10, of course I mean 12!
