Foreign Policy has a collection of photographs of Aleppo.
Here's a transcript of the debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Paul Ryan.
The European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize today. "The Norwegian Nobel Committee wishes to focus on what it sees as the EU's most important result: the successful struggle for peace and reconciliation and for democracy and human rights. The stabilizing part played by the EU has helped to transform most of Europe from a continent of war to a continent of peace."
Nils Koppruch, song-writer for the fantastic band Fink until 2006 (he released a solo record afterwards), died yesterday. "Es heißt, dass etwas Neues beginnt wenn etwas Anderes endet..."
Films I can't wait to see: Christian Petzold's Barbara which is out on DVD now; Abbas Kiarostami's Like Someone in Love, I also finally watched Bruno Dumont's Hadewijch (I think the best way to approach this movie is to know absolutely nothing about it before starting - but here's the trailer) and it was fantastic.
John Darnielle, interviewed by Pop Matters and Stereogum, The Atlantic on the recording process of Transcendental Youth, one of my favourite records this year.
New shows to see this Fall: Elementary (which is so so so great, like, really really great), and I've recently gotten a bit nostalgic about Emergency Room and the pilot of Chicago Fire sort of fed into that. Homeland is back for its second season, but nothing The Thick Of It will ever do compares to the sad, sad theatre of Austrian politics, which is why the return of Die Sendung ohne Namen aka % is incredibly well-timed. I watched some old episodes from 2002 and basically the difference is like that thing that happened with The Daily Show after 2008. Also, The Hour (you can't miss...) comes back on November 12!
