Some rare photos and interesting backstory to LIFE’s portrayal of the literary world’s Papa.

It’s our 6th-month wedding anniversary. Aww.

This weekend is the sixth-month anniversary of being married to Elizabeth. We were married on Saturday, September 25, 2010, at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston, surrounded by a small circle of family and friends.

Here are some wonderful photos of the wedding, taken by our unofficial official photographer, Allyson Fauver.

Elizabeth Taylor’s obit writer

The New York Times had that Elizabeth Taylor obit ready for so long that the writer of the piece actually died six years ago. No joke.

Not sure if this is true, but it IS likely. Yes, the media DO prepare obituaries well in advance of a famous or well-known person’s death. Just in case. Gotta be prepared.

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
— Neil Gaiman

Beautiful and sad, intricately woven, raw and real, detailed yet not without mystery.

Javier Bardem is up for best actor in this film tonight at the Oscars, apparently. If he gets it, so too should the director, Alejandro González Iñárritu. Above amazing.
