Neil Patrick Harris’ new memoir describes the surprising twists and turns of his life and career, from becoming a child actor to starring in two hit TV shows to winning a Tony. But Harris wrote his memoir, Choose Your Own Autobiography, in an unconventional way: The book is based on the “Choose Your Own Adventure” series in which young readers decide which plot to follow.

Raiders of the Lost Ark in black and white

jkottke:

In 2011, Steven Soderbergh revealed he’d repeatedly watched Raiders of the Lost Ark in black & white. Now he’s released a full-length version of the film in b&w, with no dialogue and an alternate soundtrack (Reznor and Ross’s score to The Social Network) so that you can focus on how the film…

This looks amazing.

"Oil and gas companies rushing to drill in the Eagle Ford Shale since 2009 have burned and wasted billions of cubic feet of natural gas — enough to meet the needs for an entire year of every San Antonio-area household that relies on the fossil fuel."

Numerous media outlets and citizen journalists have reported excessive use of force by police toward those protesting the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed teen who was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., Saturday, Aug. 9.

Wednesday evening, two reporters were arrested while covering the third day of protests. Wesley Lowery of the Washington Post (and ONA14 presenter) details how he was instructed to stop filming police officers and was slammed into a soda machine while he was being arrested. Ryan Reilly of the Huffington Post said police purposefully shoved his head against the glass of the building. They have both been released.

To follow the ongoing situation in Ferguson:

Three national reporters who have been covering the situation include Jamelle Bouie of Slate and Joel D. Anderson of Buzzfeed, who are on the scene, and Gene Demby of NPR CodeSwitch.
