By Cliterary Device on What If Gwyneth Paltrow Is Merely a Mirror of Our Own Obnoxiousness?

@pajamaralls: When I think of Gwyneth Paltrow, the meal that comes to mind is buttered bread, that is room temperature. It's appearance has the curated aspiration of finer things, but quietly accepts that it will impart no more than the flavor of beige once out of view, in the mouth.

Can portraits be made out of whipped organic butter and artisanal heritage bread in much the same way as a yogurt medium? Using a paintbrush made from the beards of Parisian squirrels?

Is this a guide for the rare instance where "Congratulations, how wonderful." won't do?

By Tuna Surprise on Selfie Lovers Forced to Explain Themselves

As a non-Millennial and decidedly uncool person, I take selfies because I vacation by myself and sometimes I want more than my toes in the pictures. The photo scourge of my generation, was the drunken-woman pile where everyone had their arms around each other, people were slouching and the camera flash washed the whole thing out.

Great interview, as always!

The Hairpin has gone through some changes in content and tone in the past bit and I love to see it head more in this direction.

@Judith Slutler oh my god WEAR A HELMET. I live in Vietnam and I'm telling you, *no one* wears a helmet to ride a bicycle. I do! I do everyday! You want to know why? It's a horrible, true story. My friend, who went to the same school as me, was living in Vietnam also and she was drunk and not wearing a helmet and involved in an accident and is *now mentally handicapped for life*.

I seriously wish I was making this up.

Wear a helmet wear a helmet wear a helmet oh my goddds.
