Here’s where we use our Internet-reading abilities to share the latest articles, videos and randomness you need to consume before the day’s out. We call it: The Cooler.

Novel Idea: Joshua Cohen is writing a serialized novel online, in real time. It’s happening right now in this Google Doc, so you can observe him writing and rewriting in a shockingly efficient fashion. And you can leave commentary as you see fit.

Ri Watch: Miranda July sits down with Rihanna who gets deep into public scrutiny, living in the moment and why she’s Googling childbirth.

Roll Through: This fall, Emilio Pucci will release its first line of... skateboards. Yeah. The likes of which are in this here film.

Good Natured: In 1964, Bruce Davidson went to Los Angeles on assignment for Esquire. He returned 45 years later to document LA in a triptych of studies of nature in urban cities. His work has just been rereleased in two new books, Los Angeles 1964 and Nature of Los Angeles 2008-2013—and here’s Vogue getting a glimpse into the mind behind it all.

Last Night Right Here: Stephen Colbert wondered what happened to all those TED talks that just didn’t make the cut, and Olivia Wilde took the “Actathalon” challenge.

Ilana Dadras cannot discern between situations in which sarcasm is and is not appropriate. Her favorite things include mezcal cocktails, Big Sur and writing about herself in the third person.
