all the oddly unique lives in this world

Posted: January 12th, 2018 | No Comments »

from vulture’s interview with terry gross, about the merits of interviewing:

I like to quote John Updike on this. In his memoir, Self-Consciousness, which I really love, he said he wanted to use his life as “a specimen life, representative in its odd uniqueness of all the oddly unique lives in this world.” That’s kind of how I see interviews. When you’re talking to an artist, you can get insight into the sensibility that created his or her art and into the life that shaped that sensibility. I love making those connections. I think we all feel very alone. I don’t mean that we don’t have friends or lovers but that deep at our core we all have loneliness.

from the passerbuys interview with mari andrew:

PS totally spaced about my no shopping resolution, which i failed immediately on new year’s day by buying socks from topshop. cool. but seriously i needed those socks. but renewed commitment to no shopping (except for home improvements and pre-existing gift certificates)


great new year’s

this movie is NOT good

ahhhhh twas a great new year’s! my mom arrived last night, and after she got settled with some chardonnay, she was like, “let’s watch something on netflix! i’m curious about this show with will smith called bright — would you mind trying it?” so we watched bright (!!!!!), which was NOT not NOT good (john told me that indiewire called it the worst movie of 2017), but somehow we did enjoy it? maybe it was just the utter chillness of everyone watching + magic stuff? also then we watched a few episodes of veep in honor of awesome cuz steve and then mom went to bed and ross and i drank champagne at midnight.

A HOME NEW YEAR’S!
SUCH A SURPRISE, SUCH A DREAM!

then we opened christmas presents today and WHAT FUN! we got a new quilt and a new duvet and i’m straight PUMPED. coincidentally my new year’s resolution this year is to make my bed every day.

THE END

ACTUALLY NOT THE END AS I JUST DECIDED TO RENT MEN IN BLACK 3 AS BACKGROUND VIEWING IN HOMAGE TO BRIGHT


i’m always so delighted to be eating white rice

a very fun grub street diet (but aren’t most of them) with illustrator mari andrew:

I went home for lunch and repeated my comfort meal: rice, egg, arugula. It’s not, like, a dish I’d make for other people, but it’s the perfect food for me, and I always look forward to eating it. I’m always so delighted to be eating white rice. I went through a brief phase where I tried to eat just brown rice, or quinoa, or whatever was the grain of the moment, and then thought, Why am I doing this? To be “healthier”? White rice is a million times better! I’m very out of my nebulous “healthy” stage, and now eat intuitively, emotionally, socially, and joyfully.

UPDATE: I JUST READ A COUPLE OF REALLY BORING GRUB STREET DIETS
