The Pennsylvania Tourism Board has a wacky new advertising campaign. I guess it's kind of cool, but it feels a little dated somehow, like it was conceived around the same time as that circle of Levi jeans websites a few years ago.

Here is a really awesome NPR interview with Phillip Glass.

I haven't had an opportunity to listen to the entire extended interview yet, but I heard some of it in the car over the weekend. When Glass composed Einstein on the Beach, he was a cabdriver in New York. The opera was produced and sold out every night, but operas always lose money, so despite his success, Glass still drove a cab. One day, a passenger saw his name on his cab license. "Young man," she said, "You have the same name as a great composer." He didn't have the heart to tell her that composer was driving her taxi.
