Not long ago, I received a note from a reader named Shandel who wanted to share her experience with social media. She began by noting that she used to “love” these services: I loved meeting new people and adding them to my friends list.

I was proud of my life and wanted to show it off.” Then, like many, she began to feel “some unrest.” She worried that she was looking at photo...

Watch the Oscar-Winning “Gerald McBoing-Boing” (1950): It’s Ranked as the 9th Greatest Cartoon of All Time To understand how revolutionary this short film from 1950 was to contemporary viewers, just consider the previous four decades (or so) of animated films.

When Italian Futurists Declared War on Pasta (1930) We must fight against puddles of sauce, disordered heaps of food, and above all, against flabby, anti-virile pastasciutta. —poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti Odds are Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, the father of Futurism and a dedicated provocateur, would be crestfallen to discover how closely his most incendiary gastronomical pronouncement aligns with the views of today’s low-carb crusaders. In denouncing pasta, “that absurd Italian gastronomic relig...
