Top Ten: Ten solid items to carry you into fall, courtesy of Esky’s Nick Sullivan. [Esquire]

Fare Thee Well: A wildly subjective ranking of R.E.M.’s best albums, in honor of their recent departure. Good work, gentlemen. [Vulture]

In the Drink: If you’re in the market for a pair of swim trunks, this is a pretty good time to pick them up. [Well Spent]

—R.B.
