I love the readings too, but if someone hasn't already learned that the Stranger has all readings, online, every week, they never will. slog need not be a summary of the newspaper.
Recap a particularly awesome week's readings once every couple months, not every week. Same goes for the other stuff.
About Gary Vaynerchuck - he really does talk like that. He does a video podcast called Wine Library TV, and it's all high energy, sports loving, wine educating east coast guy talk. It's weird and awesome.
I disagree, I like the daily reading announcements.
I will skim the weekly announcements, but often a name or book title doesn't jump out at me when it should. Here we get a little context, which can help a lot ("Oh, that's the book that blah blah..." or "hm, that actually sounds interesting..." or "shit, I had forgotten all about this reading", etc.).
I disagree as well, even though I never go to readings. Paul rocks and I'm always happy to read his stuff.
People like #1 can just scrollthefuckdown.
