Assorted Links

1) Well, Roger Ebert said it best. "Shall I have feelings, or should I pretend to be cool? Will I seem hopelessly square if I find “Kick-Ass” morally reprehensible and will I appear to have missed the point?" More here.

2) Moderation trumps exercise. "But a growing body of science suggests that exercise does have an important role in weight loss. That role, however, is different from what many people expect and probably wish. The newest science suggests that exercise alone will not make you thin, but it may determine whether you stay thin, if you can achieve that state." More here.

3) Most entertaining tweet of the day is courtesy of SPINmagazine. "Attn fans of grown men getting weirdly emotional seeing indie-rock: I will be live-tweeting."

4) Excellent music to check out here.

HA!! Kudos Spin magazine. I agree with the grown men and indie rock comment.

I like these assorted links you post in here. I find the same thing to be true in my case. If you don't watch how much you eat, exercise won't do much good. I get a kick out of a lot of these exercise and diet books you see at the bookstore. Do some of these writers think that people don't know that the less you eat and the more you exercise, the skinnier one gets?
Being skinny is more a state of mind, I find. People get skinny by will power mostly.
