Congratulations, Emma! I enjoyed your reign of The Hairpin and am looking forward to seeing more of your work on Jezebel.
Oh man, the Korean high school photos also linked to in that article are amazing.
This is so perfect. I was once a really creative person and when I hang out with my actively creative friends and they ask me what I’m working on (NOTHING) I feel really bad about myself. It feels like the need to make things has gone away. I miss that. This is forcing me to think about how I can try to flex that creative muscle, or whatever it is, again.
I want to pet every single dog I see, but will almost always suppress my desire because I figure the owner doesn’t want to stop every time this happens. Instead I smile at it like a goon as I pass by. I allow myself a reprieve if the dog is unleashed and runs up to me.
Also: I loved this.
Thank you for posting that R. Kelly article. I was having a conversation with a friend about his new album just last week and was definitely downplaying that stuff in his past.
I've really enjoyed the excerpts, but I’ve been too lazy to download the kindle app. This is the post that finally got me to install it and buy this thing.
This is awesome. I'd also suggest Ang Lee's Lust, Caution.
Loved this and the ode to your dumbphone.
OMFG THIS IS THE BEST NEWS!
