Holy moly, we made it to the end. Well, almost the end, and I’m planning to spend as much of the remaining hours of 2018 in pajamas as possible. Anyway! Here are a few things I was into this week.
“It was the year of Mark Zuckerberg because I can’t think about the love I feel for other people without wondering how it’s being used to sell me shaving cream. It was the year of Mark Zuckerberg because we don’t even talk about how absolutely, hideously sad all this is, since talking about it would mean questioning why we still spend so much time online, and, after all, we’re the people who live here. It was the year of Mark Zuckerberg because our jadedness toward the internet is really a form of grief.” This entire piece by Brian Phillips is so good. Pls read.
I’m ALWAYS on the l👀k out for new Amy Sedaris content and this tour of her NYC apartment is such a delight. Pause at the 6:36 mark for my new favourite piece of art, and if anyone knows where David is buying her bright pink kitchen roll in London, please do give me a shout.
Caity Weaver taught me about glitter and I hate it even more than I did before. Thanks, Caity!
I really enjoyed Tina Roth-Eisenberg’s talk at We Do Lectures in Wales. It’s vulnerable and moving and the Bertold Brecht quote she shared really hit home with me: “Crisis takes place when the old has not died and the new has still not been born” Damn. More thoughts on this soon.
I love listening to podcasts while should-shimmying around the kitchen so I naturally loved listening to Sam Sanders interview my #1 chef crush, Samin Nosrat, while I was prepping tacos using some smart cooking tips I picked up from her very own cookbook. The interview is wonderful. Listen up.
