  • The most iconic book covers ever. (Lit Hub)
  • “What is Good Taste Anyway?”: a smart and amusing piece. (Town & Country)
  • This piece—on famous old literary hangouts—is fun, and is accompanied by some fantastic vintage photos. (NY Times)
  • Funny. (Kottke)
  • This infographic, which charts the age difference between romantic leads in Hollywood pictures, is of course depressing.
  • I’m only kind of a Beatles fan, but I was engrossed by the never-before-seen footage of them in this trailer for the upcoming doc, Get Back.
  • And relatedly, here is a history of The Fool, a Dutch art collective that arguably created psychedelic style, and left their mark on the Beatles, among other bands. (Messy Nessy Chic)
  • The 25 best new movies, books, and TV shows of the next two weeks. (Vulture)
  • Elizabeth Warren on the books that shaped her. (Elle)
  • And hey, may I suggest that if you haven’t listened to this week’s episode of Everything is Fine yet that you do so immediately? Jenn and I are talking about being cool with being uncool, complicated sibling relationships, fall shoes, laser treatments, Sandra Oh, and so much more. Listen in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. And also, why don’t you join our Patreon? We’ve got so much fun content, and another live event coming up soon.

    I am looking forward to the upcoming EIF Patreon gathering with such glee I’ve put it on both my iPhone calendar and my paper calendar. Great links, Kim! That Beatles trailer sent me into a tailspin of nostalgia (and I still don’t like Yoko). Have a great weekend, everyone!

    That age difference chart is basically every Woody Allen movie ever. Gross.

    In the movie age chart also striking was how men play 20 something characters into their 40s & 50s and women over 30 mostly play 10-30+ years older than they are.
    I’d like to see one with the ages of parents and children. So many women play mothers to actors 10 years younger(if that much). And every male character over 55 has babies and toddlers ( I know that’s realistic for the actors and Hollywood, but cm’on)

    I sent an e-mail to Outdoor Voices about those rather fabulous hiker/sneakers shown with the travel pants on yesterday’s post (someone else liked them as well and I apologize that I can’t remember who that was, but she does have great taste!) Anyway, I heard back from OV––they are MEN’S Moab 2 Mid OV Eco by Merrell. If you can wear men’s shoe sizes then they can be yours.

    I really enjoyed this week’s podcast. I love it when it’s just the two of you chatting.

    You’re only “kind of a Beatles fan”?
    That makes me sad….
