On paper, none of this makes any sense. Willow Smith is the 13-year-old offspring of Will and Jada, who sings about her hair. King Krule is a 24-year-old delinquent from London who sings about working class anguish. So how did Smith end up covering Krule’s calling card, “Easy Easy“? We don’t know, but ignorance—at least in this case—is bliss.

If you listen to one sideshow podcast this summer, make it the one that explores the essence of the season. Howard Kremer has a lot of bits, but the comedian lives by one of them: “Have a summah!” He also managed to build a comedy empire out of it. A few years ago, Kremer had an epiphany while on the beach in Los Angeles: there was nothing more important in life than making the most of the summer — which Kremer calls “summah” in honor of his native New Jersey. “There it is! That’s the crux of the debate!” he said. If you have to choose between work and adult responsibilities and enjoying a summer day, “I’m going to choose summah, and I’m going to tell people about it!”

This summer will be remembered as a rough one. In between visits to the beach, we were buffeted with bad news, from Malaysia Flight 17 to Michael Brown to the rise of ISIS. Visual storyteller Christoph Neiman, who was also responsible for the best World Cup coverage we saw this summer, powerfully captured the season’s mixed emotions for The New Yorker.

Tonight is the men’s final of the US Open. For the first time since 2005, none of the Big Four will be competing for a Grand Slam title. That means no Federer, no Nadal, no Murray, and — most disappointing — no Novak Djokovic. He’ll be missed.

We talked a fair amount of shit about the original, but are submitting to the remix. We listened. We liked. But now we hate ourselves. Happy Friday.

Pogo might be one of the most popular musicians in the world, but most folks have never heard of him. That’s because he’s just popular in one very important place: YouTube. He’s got hundreds of thousands of subscribers and a cool hundred million views. We’ve been fans for more than a minute, and got to interview dude this summer.
