I was wondering about the blatant "Heidi Klum" lingerie product placement, but then I saw on Pitchfork that the video was made *for* the lingerie line. So...it's an ad. We're not even pretending now.
On Helen and I
Question: would the white girl in Dil Chahta Hai qualify as an item girl? Because I just recall feeling kind of sorry for her. She was no Helen.
I JUST re-read Wuthering Heights for the first time in possibly as many as 20 years, and I have to say that I appreciated much more this time. The first time, I was a teenager, and I just found Heathcliff and Cathy so unspeakably awful that I couldn't understand what all the fuss was about. All that maundering about on the moor. This time around, I was struck by the complicated layering of narrative voices, the way everything Cathy and Heathcliff (and the subsequent generation) do is filtered through the eyes and voices of the people around them. It's so complex and rich and strange a story, I know understand how shocked people were that this emerged from the imagination of a small-town pastor's daughter. I absolutely loved it.
I wonder if Agatha Runcible from Vile Bodies was in part based on Brenda Dean Paul.
@deepomega Now you will think, what a sweet, preternaturally wise little boy, not creepy at all.
(I THINK SAM IS CREEPY THERE I SAID IT.)
MANDERLEY, not Manderly. Du Maurier, not George R. R. Martin.
I wasn't sure I would like this, but I really did! Thanks for posting.

@smartastic And the kids are alright.
Ugh, I had a boyfriend once who had trouble with decibels.
