Link Party: 4/10-4/14

Quiet.

I realized yesterday I haven’t written an actual post beyond Link Parties in a very long time — in May, I’m hoping to fix that. I miss writing for myself and this blog, but I need to get on top of some other professional work that’s starting to get overwhelming. Thank you for reading, even when I don’t have much to say.

Here’s this week’s party:

1. A very interesting story on Coachella and its founder.

2. Daniel Patterson, Locol and a valiant goal to change fast food.

3. The DAMN. exit survey. My favorite answer: “Imagine being this much better at your job than everyone else.”

4. Tim Kaine, post-election and back in the Senate.

5. The return of Lorde.

See you later.

Link Party: 4/3-4/7

Blooming trees.

Here’s what I’ve read lately:

1. A writer asked Tony Hawk to teach her how to ollie. The story and the video are delightful.

2. Kirsten Gillibrand, profiled by Rebecca Traister.

3. This story about how a beloved Hollywood home was relocated to Canada is incredible.

4. The past lives of Shirley MacLaine.

5. A man’s style journey, thanks to a pair of clown pants.

And a bonus: Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble” video.

Have a great week.

Link Party: 3/27-3/31

Somewhere in the sort-of-not-really desert, California, USA.

March was a marathon month, and I suspect the next 30 days are going to feel like a sprint. I kickstarted April with a day trip in and around the desert: a wildflower walk, a mirrored house art installation and the best milkshakes. April, here I come — no bad days.

Here’s what I’ve read lately:

1. The world of Japanese luxury fruit.

2. A personal essay on envisioning California.

3. Donald Trump’s vision of New York, stuck in the 1980s.

4. A Navajo chef on the complexities of Native American cuisine.

5. Why Joan Didion writes “so much” about clothes.

And a bonus: I am really, really feeling this mood board for summer 2017.

Have a great week.
