Friday links

15

  • OK ladies, I’m out of here for the holidays and a little beyond—I’ll be back here on the regular on Wednesday Jan. 11, but will be checking in intermittently from the road when I can, so do pop in. As Far as Everything is Fine goes, we’ve got a new episode every Monday as usual. As I say every year around this time, if the holidays are your thing, I hope they’re fantastic. And if you dread all of it, I see you and I hope it passes quickly and without incident. Meanwhile, enjoy the last Friday Links of 2022, starting with this enjoyable rabbit hole of some of the best photos of the year. (NY Times—I made this a gifted link for those of you who have requested that. Let me know if it works).
  • The lost art of Letterlocking: this was fascinating. (Messy Nessy Chic)
  • The Year Men Flopped. (The Cut)
  • How to donate money even if you don’t have a lot to give. (The Cut)
  • An appreciation of Bookforum magazine, a really good publication that died this week. (Vulture)
  • This look at the Cotswolds residence of the late fashion icon Isabella Blow is just amazing. (Vogue)
  • A kind of interesting piece about bad gifts (Atlantic)
  • Funny. (McSweeney’s)
  • On the occasion of its 25th anniversary a hairy inside look at the making of Titanic. (Pajiba)
  • This piece on nepotism in Hollywood and beyond is another delightful rabbit hole. (Vulture)

      The Atlantic doesn’t offer a gifted post on this piece. But I don’t have a sub to the Atlantic and I was able to access the piece.

      As an NY Mag subscriber, it really annoys me that gift articles aren’t supported. I mention it on every survey they send me.

    “…if the holidays are your thing, I hope they’re fantastic. And if you dread all of it, I see you and I hope it passes quickly and without incident. ”

    Thank you for this. I wouldn’t say the holidays have ever been my thing, but when I had young children the bad parts were balanced out by seeing it through their eyes, which is to say seeing everything as completely magical. Now they are teenagers and I get all of the holiday yuck without the magic.

      But – folks should consider subscribing as they can – and when we can’t, accessing through your local public library is an option too! We need to support trustworthy journalism as much as we can.

    Here is to a great holiday whatever you celebrate however you celebrate it. Kim, have a fantastic trip––I assume you’re now taking a large trunk after everyone’s terrific recommendations!! I’m already looking forward to the 2023 postings. (that Vogue film is amazing)

      Now I have a vision of Kim lugging a giant steamer trunk on tour with the Butthole Surfers, and it is amusing.
