(Welcome to Something for the Weekend. Some Infinite Guest stuff, some not Infinite Guest stuff. Thank you.)
(Mia Farrow, haver of an interesting life.)
COOL INFINITE GUEST THING: With Uber being in the news for reasons you don’t want to be in the news for, Life of the Law picked a good time to examine the legal gray areas of “sharing economy” businesses like Uber, Lyft, and Airbnb.
EUROPEAN TOILETS: Open Mike has part two of his Yoni Wolf interview on Secret Skin, which is great, but he’s also in the middle of a European tour, so his tale of encountering the washout toilet for the first time is a highlight.
MIA FARROW, PART 1: You Must Remember This has the first of two parts on Mia Farrow’s run from 1960 to 1970. We’re not even to the point where the Beatles name a song after her sister yet.
HOOPS: Basketball enthusiasts John Moe and Sherman Alexie talk about the game on Home Dunk. Kobe Bryant, reservation basketball, the Seattle SuperSonics, and wildly offensive mascot names are covered.
COOL NON-INFINITE GUEST THING: I laughed very hard at this Clickhole quiz about a nice, Saab-owning dad and his garbage sons.
