Here’s what I read this week:
1. I follow Anne Helen Petersen on Twitter, and was not surprised that this profile on Alison Brie was so well-written and so thoughtful. A must-read. (Also, I like how Buzzfeed is stepping up its design game.)
2. This is a great article that explains the history and methodology behind emoji. FYI: The middle finger emoji is not in iOS 9.
3. Sadie Stein, a contributing editor at The Paris Review, was on a train from Myrdal to Flåm when she got off to visit a tourist spot. Little did she know some local artists were going to perform Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights” video and that is was going to be awesome.
4. Because Seinfeld will never not be relevant, someone actually drew comparisons between Festivus and the second GOP debate. I love the Internet.
5. This dude named Hyrvoix de Landosle obviously loved to annotate. Marginalia is great.
And a bonus: I posted this on Facebook earlier this week, but I cannot get over this Reggie Watts song. So good, yeah.
