A thing I miss
Personal blogs where people write A LOT and it is VERY GOOD. Does anyone know of one that I maybe don’t that I should be reading? I’m all for Tumblr’s brevity, but someone please point me to excellent longform writing online. Thanks.

This thing is fabulous. Sample: LANGELLA: Would you like to hear my most favorite line I have said onstage, after 75 plays? HATHAWAY: Yes. LANGELLA: “Suck my d––k.” I said it to Christine Baranski every night for four months, and I couldn’t wait to say it. It was such a great line to say.

You know what’s going to be rad? Martin Scorsese’s show for HBO, Boardwalk Empire. Well, he’s just producing it. But it’s about the seedy underbelly of Atlantic City in the prohibition era, and if anyone has been to AC now, they know that with even more saltwater taffy, less geriatrics, and some forbidden sauce, that place must have been the total sex during its time. The...

I can’t stop looking at this.
I should really be working.
A: lets become rabbis
R: is that a stable profession?
A: people need spiritual guidance
R: would we even make good rabbis?
A: professional jewish mothers?
R: please let that be a job
i think we could make a killing
mother: you really want to eat that?
child: i had a small lunch today, mom
mother: [puts palms up by face, lifts eyebrows], OK, I didn't say you couldn't eat it. I just asked if you wanted to.
child: [enrolls in therapy]
A: We could manage jewish mothers
R: "Guilt Buy Association, LLP"

hydeordie: Ok, this is officially my new favorite website.* You can search for art related posts by Time, Style, Artist, or Themes. It has a super easy layout and really interesting posts, artworks, and podcasts. This site is being developed by Beth Harris and Steven Zucker as a dynamic enhancement (or even substitute) for the static traditional Western art history textbook. This is a...
[One thing Caroline and Lorna had in common was an overpowering reverence for high-brows, no matter how obscure. Each had met friends’ friends of great erudition who dazzled them with thoughts and phrases gloriously beyond their own intellectual means, something they could wonder at with neither envy of the possessor nor the desire to buy. Since they were able to afford what material objects...

Maybe I’m crazy, but all I think I really want for V-day is the cast iron skull of a hummingbird to hang around my neck. Or a White Castle combo meal.

[The job is, in many cases, the second one a girl has after working in a fast-food chain, and the wage scale reflects that short step up the career ladder. The frenetic pace of the drive-thru is still there, as are the constellations of acne breakouts (due, I guess, to a promiscuous level of cosmetic experimentation). The polyester smocks and Madonna headsets are there, but now they are a...

The Girl Talk record is much like the Jesus Prayer from Franny and Zooey--once through is inane, twice is annoying, three times is catchy, and after multiple listens you go insane and/or see divinity. Probably the former.
JUST BLAZE.– My friend Cristina, who has said this motto to me repeatedly for the past five years. It’s always correct.
