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.

Here’s what I’ve read lately:

1. “My President Was Black,” by Ta-Nehisi Coates. This is essential reading.

2. I love Instagram poet Cleo Wade‘s posts.

3. The meme of the year was emails.

4. The history behind octopi wearing top hats.

5. The greatness of Teen Vogue.

Have a great week.

Link Party: 3/28-4/1

On Monday, I started a new job at my alma mater as a communications specialist. I am so, so happy to be back.

Here’s what I read this week:

1. The zen of the Buzzfeed Tasty video.

2. Hillary Clinton, “superpredators” and the deep roots of mass incarceration in the United States.

3. Lost in Trumplandia. (This is very, very good.)

4. The most important sentence on this article about Instagram’s switch to an algorithmic feed: “Our current version of the internet lives and breaths off a currency of human attention.”

5. The craving for public squares.

And a bonus: This David Bowie gifset made me laugh. What a dude.

Have a wonderful weekend.
