Just in time to start to close down summer, we got the pool out today for the first time this year.

Thanks to Challey and Olivia, I just learned that you can eat raw corn, then I impressed CR with this badass CSA salad.
Corn cut from the cob plus squash (slightly sauteed), tomatoes, cilantro, tomatoes, sliced radishes, green peppers, salad dressing, and a hard boiled egg on top.

Persado’s software deconstructs advertisements into five components, including emotion words, characteristics of the product, the “call to action” and even the position of text and the images accompanying it. By recombining them in millions of ways and then distilling their essential characteristics into eight or more test emails that are sent to some customers, Persado says it can effectively determine the best possible come-on.

Reblogging this from Sufjan Stevens this morning gives it new meaning.

I don’t have the same judgement for Kenny G that I once did, when I loved Pat Metheny’s take-down of him years ago as a music student.

Everyone can do what they want. Marc Maron interviewed Josh Groban not too long ago, who is another musician who gets ire, and his perspective was really great. I recommend giving it a listen. They’re all just dudes sharing music with audiences. Also this.

I’m so happy I married you.

CR. 

The best.

Love in Brooklyn Heights today.
