Your Sunday Long Reads: Jimmy Kimmel and Auto-Tune

Host Jimmy Kimmel speaks onstage during the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on September 23, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

It's Sunday afternoon, your last chance to read all that stuff you meant to read last week before Monday brings a new deluge of things you will want to read. Below, some of our recommendations:

"Here's Jimmy Kimmel" by Jonah Weiner (Rolling Stone): Bro-ing out with Jimmy Fallon's late night competition.

"Seduced by 'perfect' pitch: how Auto-Tune conquered pop music" by Lessley Anderson (The Verge): Auto-tune is artificial, but is that such a bad thing?

"By Any Other Name" by Teddy Wayne (The New York Times): Would you rather read a book by a John or a Jonathan? 

"Partial Magic in Pat the Bunny" by Ed Park (Slate/The Believer):On the scary infinite regression contained in classic children's books about rabbits.

"I’m not here to make friends" by Daniel D'Addario (Salon): Survivor has been on for 24 seasons, and some people are still showing up to the casting calls.
