Excellent links today! McSweeney’s – always. Can’t wait to see Tár.
Tar is the best movie set in the classical music world I’ve ever seen, so much so that I saw it twice. Don’t hesitate to see it.
The Cut essay about a mother and her daughter…woof. My god. I know how easy it is to judge, and I am the mother to an only daughter, she’s still young, I am hideously flawed, and I’m still completely comfortable in my disgust with the mothering described in that article. Good on the author for her writing, her honesty, and her humility in getting some help so that she wouldn’t replicate her mother’s actions.
quick recommendation…yesterday my hairdresser used a new (to me) product on my hair: REF Stockholm Sweden and while I never think of folks in Sweden as having curly hair the stuff is great on my locks. Not sticky, not smelly, vegan, cruelty free etc. etc. Gets good reviews online as well. I came home with two products in my clutches…Fiber Mousse and Curl Power. Great set of link, Kim!
Re EIF: Has Jennifer tried a satin sleep cap or satin pillowcases?
I like silk pillow cases a LOT.
The Wire will always be my number 1!
This is absolutely correct. The fact that it covers a specific time period in a single city through different lenses (police, drug lords, dock workers, politicians, schools) every season is absolute genius–and the acting is fantastic throughout. I can’t believe there are people who still haven’t seen it! I also loved Treme, also by David Simon, but he never quite caught the magic the same way.
