Links for 5.25.09: Beards, Twitter, Wilco, the New Yorker, the Marshmallow Test

by Josh Kimball

*Obits: Jay Bennett, formerly of Wilco, died in his sleep at 45.

*Photography: People in pollution (amazing). [harper's]

*The Marshmallow Test: “Don’t” is a great read from the New Yorker about how self-control among kids is a key indicator of future success and a current area of study.

*The Crash: Lovely “Flight of the Conchords” tour posters. I like the second of the two posters, if you have been wondering about it for the past one-hundredth of a second. [lyrical_miracle]

*Art: The newest New Yorker cover was drawn on an iPhone.

*Twitter: Billboard takes a look at Twitter and the music business. After using Twitter for three years (on maybe half a dozen accounts) and writing about it (often in conjunction with music) innumerable times, I think I’m hitting a wall.

*Facial hair: A world beard champion has again been named. Funny, but I just shaved. The circle of life. [buzzfeed]

*Grade for today’s links: Don’t ever give up.
