Friends! How was your week?
As you read this, I’m in Las Vegas for a long weekend of debauchery with Ms. Franzen
. We saw this awesome/hilarious show
, visited the neon sign museum
, and lots of other shenanigans. So much fun! I’ll be writing up a post about all the things you can do in Las Vegas if you’re not interested in gambling.
I’m looking for new True Story interviews. Can you help me with any of these?
A pet in costumes
? You’re speaking my language, Anna. (Also: this pug’s name is Mama Biscuit. AMAZING.)
I caught a glimpse of myself going by the window of the wine store, in my jeans and my low-cut top, and I looked hot. Nice boobs, I thought. Nice ass. Nice hair. Nice whole woman. No one ever talks about this part. About how you might be sexy. About how you might end up sexier, for having done this crazy thing with your body. For having learned to give it a high five for everything it can do. For transforming. For not having to care as much. For wearing jeans again. For everything.
Solved! The Dum Dums mystery flavor!
What are we looking for when we’re constantly pawing through our emails and social media accounts?
Let’s all buy this gorgeous zine devoted to famous ladies of literature.
So interesting! The opposite trajectories of Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence wins the Best Actress Oscar, trips on the stairs, and becomes America’s undisputed Best Friend Forever. It is hard to overstate how important her personality is to this equation; people see her interviews and then want to see her movies. But her non-franchise movies are also more accessible (and successful!) than Stewart’s, and she is comfortable in situations that made Stewart want to disappear, be they press junkets or major studio films. (Stewart could never convince anyone to see her tiny passion projects, and her press identity hewed too close to her Twilight character: fidgety, wan, dating Robert Pattinson.) Freed of her Twilight obligation, Stewart quietly breaks up with Robert Pattinson and barely appears in public.
