*An interview with Haruki Murakami in The Paris Review.
*A statement by Louis CK about his adventurous choice to sell his comedy special direct to the public (for a teeny $5) and what this means for the future (and right now).
*A short piece about the young boy, Thomas Horn, who'll be playing the lead role of Oskar in the cinematic adaptation of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
*A piece by Christopher Hitchens for Vanity Fair. I believe it's the last piece he wrote before passing away last week. It's the first writing of his I've ever read, and I think reading the man's take on mortality and the "trial of the will" was a poignant place to start.
*I haven't been on twitter for long, so other than the passing of Steve Jobs I've rarely witnessed the outpouring of tweets dedicated to a single person. The Guardian posted an article that amassed many of the twitter/news/tv/interview tributes that were made by writers/politicians/etc after Hitchens passing.
