What I’ve read lately:

1. The film J.D. Salinger nearly made of “For Esme, With Love and Squalor.”

2. New York’s dying diner culture.

3. Confessions of an Instagram influencer.

4. FiveThirtyEight asked 8,500 people why they leave comments on the Internet.

5. Donald Crowhurst’s heartbreaking 1969 circumnavigation hoax.

And a bonus: Wes Anderson‘s Christmas ad for H&M.

Have a terrific week.

Link Party: 10/24-10/28

Last week I got to see Kanye West in concert and I am still not over it.

My freelance life has completely consumed the rest of my life lately, which is both a good and bad thing. October was one of the busiest months I’ve ever had, and I’m looking forward to a slower-paced November.

Here’s what I read this week:

1. Hillary Clinton and the populist revolt.

2. Bill Clinton and the legacy of the First Lady.

3. If women wrote men the way men write women.

4. The brilliance of the Saturday Night Live David S. Pumpkins sketch.

5. Why are there so many books with “girl” in the title?

And a bonus: If you don’t have a Himalayan salt lamp or an aroma diffuser, get on that ASAP.

Have a great week.

Link Party: 10/17-10/21

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.
Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.

Here’s what I read this week:

1. Bob Dylan’s first interview with Rolling Stone.

2. How Hillary became Hillary.

3. The ever-shifting symbolism of lace.

4. The weird economics of Ikea.

5. Bill Cunningham‘s memorial.

And a bonus: I’m not planning on dressing up for Halloween this year, but if I was this would be my costume.

Have a great week.
