So is the Upright Citizens Brigade. And they made a video about it. Because the only thing more terrifying than a stack of unread New Yorkers is getting a phone call from Malcolm Gladwell reminding you that you are 14 issues behind and will never catch up.
Everyone knows the feeling. The New Yorker shows up again and you haven’t even finished the issue from last week. Or that #longreads profile that everybody was talking about two weeks ago is only half read and now it’s too late to be part of The Conversation (were you ever even part of it?). Cue maniacal laughter.
