Link Party: 2/15-2/19

Seeing the sky open up on my way to work one morning made up for the time I spent in torrential downpour traffic.

Here’s what I read this week:

1. This article about Tumblr teens was wild at every turn.

2. I’ve never been a huge fan of Buzzfeed’s content (besides a really great podcast called Another Round), but I’ve always found their business strategies and virality fascinating. Read this interview with Buzzfeed’s publisher and you’ll see what I mean.

3. The world of Instagram-famous animals.

4. The obsession with Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector.

5. I loved this article about reproductions on display in art museums, so much so that it inspired me to write a post about something I had kind of forgotten about — stay tuned.

And a bonus: Kanye West’s “Wolves,” illustrated. (I’m still trying to collect my thoughts on “The Life Of Pablo.”)

Have a great weekend.

Link Party: 6/15-6/19

This week's adventure: the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden.

Here’s what I read this week:

1. I’m glad I’m not the only person who thinks email is the worst.

2. This is a fascinating story about a totem pole John Barrymore stole from the Tlingit.

3. I didn’t expect the ending for this story titled “The Wetsuitman” and you won’t either but it a) is incredible storytelling and b) sheds much-deserved light on a problem that needs more attention.

4. How do you know you’re a woman?

5. A really great interview with Jessica Hopper, a highly respected rock critic.

And a bonus: This week I crossed Nora Ephron’s I Remember Nothing off my reading list, and am working on Flannery O’Connor’s collection of short stories and J.D. Salinger’s Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction. If you have any recommendations, please send them over.

Have a fantastic weekend!
