Random Factoid #351

14 07 2010

I have a new addiction courtesy of iPhone 4 (which works FINE with a case, all you Apple haters).

Thanks to multitasking, I have begun to love listening to the arts & life segments from NPR.  Thanks to Apple’s innovations, I can listen to NPR while checking Facebook, writing an email, sending a text message, or blogging.  A lot of times I will leave it on while cleaning my room or just casually walking around the house.

I’ve heard some really fascinating segments recently.  I’ve listened to plenty of movie reviews, and some very interesting editorials, including one on the declining impact of box office draws.  But what I’ve enjoyed most are the interviews.  I heard a great one with Steve Carell, and I have a 25-minute interview with “The Kids Are All Right” director Lisa Cholodenko saved in my queue.  I plan on listening to it now that I’ve seen the movie.

By far the most fascinating was an interview with Mark Ruffalo around the release of the aforementioned movie.  I don’t know how to embed the audio, but click here to be taken to the article and listen.  You will find out a whole lot you didn’t know.
