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.

Adventures in keeping plants alive.

Adventures in keeping plants alive.

I had a good week, and I hope you did too.

Here’s what I read:

1.  This article about how the media treats leaks is good on its own, but I want to point out a sentence that contextualized John Podesta’s emails in an eye-opening way, at least for me: “the conversation around the emails became a battle over what they really were and the significance of how they came to be.”

2. Meet the editor-in-chief of the new Vogue ArabiaPrincess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz.

3. A young Wikipedia editor decides to fight back against the Internet trolls that harass her.

4. Lady Gaga‘s political messaging at the Super Bowl.

5. When things go missing — a reflection on loss.

And a bonus: The Dry Down, a newsletter about perfume.

Have a great week.

My favorite daily reminder.

My favorite daily reminder.

There hasn’t been much Link Partying around here lately. I need to fix that, and I promise to be more consistent in the last few weeks of 2016 and into 2017.

Here’s a party to last you all week. Take your pick:

1. An interview with Frank Ocean.

2. Zadie Smith on the dancers that inspire her. (I can’t wait to read Swing Time.)

3. An American journalist spends 10 years abroad and comes back to his homeland.

4. Hillary Clinton and the glass ceiling.

5. Hamilton Leithauser and Rostam‘s collaboration.

6. The barnacle queens of Galicia.

7. Instagram geotagging is ruining nature.

8. Yet another brilliant conversation with Elena Ferrante.

9. The wave of all-women art exhibitions.

10. The preserved shipwrecks in the Black Sea.

11. President Obama on his legacy and America’s future.

12. Behind the scenes at the Butterball turkey hotline.

Have a great week.

Enjoy your weekend.

Last week was a hard week. This week will be better.

Last week was a hard week. This week will be better.

Here’s what I read last week:

1. The writer Michael Chabon took his son Abe to Paris for Men’s Fashion Week and wrote an outstanding article about it.

2. The entire latest issue of the California Sunday Magazine. My favorites: Kendrick Lamar’s five rules, a violin master, preserving the quietness places on Earth and the app that puts people to sleep.

3. This story on Hillary Clinton’s policy agenda is a must-read.

4. These Julia Child facts reminded me of how much I loved her after reading her autobiography. I need to appreciate Julia Child more.

5. What we see when we look at travel photography.

And a bonus: This new bakery is at the top of my Los Angeles to-do list.

Have a great week. I’m rooting for you.

Can't go to LACMA without visiting Matisse's "La Gerbe."

Can’t go to LACMA without visiting Matisse’s “La Gerbe.”

Before we get to the main event, I’d like to share one piece of wisdom that has served me well throughout my life: It’s better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you’re a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.

Here’s what I read this week:

1. Up close and personal with Donald Trump and his supporters.

2. The Fantastic Roald Dahl.

3. Should famous artists’ social media profiles be saved and archived?

4. Marie Kondo and the war on stuff.

5. This is an incredibly well-written and thoughtful feature on Chili’s.

And a bonus: A photo essay on a 600-year-old salt co-op in Peru.

I hope you’re having a wonderful summer, and that you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
