Last night I dreamt of a dilapidated stone ruin where, if we jumped from cairn to cairn in the correct pattern, a secret door in the ground opened up and permitted us to enter an underground crystal cavern full of friendly cats.
Can we please have more incredible forearms on primetime, please
@apolsasam Are you one of the alien-human hybrids mentioned above?

@OhMarie My brother was unaware that Pan's Labyrinth was rated R. He went in assuming it was a darkish kids movie.
Imagine his surprise.

Yeah, it's just 90's clothes, but I guess instead of embracing the wildest aspects of a "vintage" style- like with bright mod 60's prints or something- the 90's is just coming back in a much weirder, subtler way. The woman in the side strip sweat pants, white t-shirt, french manicure, and high heeled tennis shoes actually made me angry. her normcore was coming at me all wrong.
It also seems "shitty baseball cap" is a vital part of this look.

First of all, those shiny pants offend me.
Second of all, if I never stopped wearing Doc Marten Mary Janes (1998-present), is that normcore or lazycore or ??

@Jaya I came here to post this exact comment. I wear things because the last time I tried I was told "You can't go grocery shopping naked" and also they keep me warm. Why does this approach to clothing have to have a fashion name?

@Das Rad I think there is something to be said for interviews that accept people's experiences as being their experiences, whether or not there is objective proof of those experiences. There have also been interviews on here with clergy and practitioners of various religions, and those interviews accept that the interviewee believes they have the connection with their deity they say they do.
In terms of being a charlatan - if someone wants to pay a self-professed psychic money for a reading and use it as a way to guide their choices, I don't think there's anything necessarily wrong with that. A psychic who is always predicting gloom or diagnosing curses that only she can lift is clearly a con artist who is out to make a buck, but sometimes people just want someone to tell them that things are going to work out, or to take a chance on something they really want, and if the person they turn to is a psychic, fine. I have friends who do their own tarot readings, not necessarily as reliable oracles of the future, but rather as ways to find out how they feel about certain choices in their lives.
You don't have to believe that Ms. Bruckmann (or anyone else) is psychic, but that doesn't mean it can't be interesting to hear her talk about it as a fact.
Yes! This. This is such a silly self-involved conversation that the writers seem to behaving with themselves. And I'm this market. I'm a Millenial writer, who wants a book. (Join the club, folks!) But really, it's a false dichotomy, truly. I feel like it's all hand wringing and lamenting. Spare me. Give me a good story. Also, I think it carefully weeds out all the good writing that happens in the middle. But I do love the Emily Gould essay.
