  4. earbone
    • 2009 May 15, Edward Rothstein, “Come Meet Your Folks: Warm Blood Is Required”, New York Times:
      This earbone criterion may seem esoteric — until we learn that the evolution of that bone structure is related to the development of a single lower jaw, which in turn, is associated with the fact that mammals, unlike, say, lizards, have differentiated teeth that allow for different kinds of chewing.

  5. festivalist
  6. frontloaded
  7. garretlike
    • 2009 May 15, Roberta Smith, “Starting With Fashion, Ending With Art”, New York Times:
      Avedon took models dressed in the same gowns and suits that were going down the runways to photograph them in Bazaar’s garretlike Paris studio, on the city’s streets or bridges, in nightclubs, at cafes or even at the circus, a ploy that produced the famous 1955 image of Dovima — one of his favorite models — swaying arms outstretched in a Dior gown and flanked closely by two elephants, who also sway and furl their trunks.

    • 2009 May 15, Christopher A. Francese, “A Degree in English”, New York Times:

      add
  13. mammalia
    • 2009 May 15, Edward Rothstein, “Come Meet Your Folks: Warm Blood Is Required”, New York Times:
      At first glance at these astonishingly diverse creatures, which include koala bears, armadillos, platypuses, beavers, whales and humans, it might seem that mammalia as a category is also arbitrary: is there any significant connection between the lumbering Indricotherium and the gnatty Batodonoides?
      add

    • 2009 May 15, “Uncle Sam and Uncle John”, New York Times:

    • 2009 May 15, Manohla Dargis, “A Less Crowded Cannes, and Perhaps a Silver Lining”, New York Times:
      A beautiful-looking slice of British miserabilism, “Fish Tank” traces what happens to a 15-year-old (Katie Jarvis) when her mother’s boyfriend moves into the family’s cramped flat, a story that can be summed up by the lyrics, sung by Nas, that portentously bring the accumulated bleak moments to a close: “Life’s a bitch and then you die.”
      add
  16. multibranched
    • 2009 May 15, Edward Rothstein, “Come Meet Your Folks: Warm Blood Is Required”, New York Times:
      So these extreme mammals really are, in a strange way, our relatives, a multibranched, variegated web of life forms, many extinct (as are 99 percent of all species that ever lived) but some of which are still being discovered: the last display shows a reconstruction of a striped rabbit, a new species discovered in 1999 in Laos.
      add
  17. nonblockbuster
  18. overmuscled
    • 2009 May 15, Nicholas Dawidoff, “Who’s on Third? What’s He Taking?”, New York Times:
      Rodriguez, like Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire before him, is an overmuscled player with freakishly distorted statistics who abetted the distortion of a sport that, when played on the square, rewards homelier virtues like guile and speed.

    • 2009 May 15, Christopher A. Francese, “A Degree in English”, New York Times:
