As usual, here is my new desktop background for the month of August. As usual, it is tiled and I have no idea where it came from.
After a one week break from links, we here at list Mimsy (i.e., me) are back. Capisce?
- A longer It trailer has been released. I’m kind of excited. And obviously if you’re decidedly not a horror/clown fan, do yourself a favor and don’t click HERE.
- And the piquant trailer for Call Me By Your Name, which I’ve been pumped about since Sundance way back in (January? February?) January. Avoid the comments section.
- Speaking of avoiding the youtube comments section, here is the delightful new animation, In a Heartbeat, which you may have seen already but if you haven’t it’s absolutely beautiful and you should. Besides turning my icy heart to mush, it’s also really well done.
- The 12-Hour Goodbye That Started Everything.
- Match your summer reads to your vacation destination. My kind of list, though most are pretty obvious pairings (not a bad thing!). Proud to say I’ve read 6/7 (but only gone to two of the places).
- An Etsy shop that sells French vintage kids’ clothing. I need a baby.
- One of the best stories I’ve ever heard- the story of a man and “his shitty, angry, muse of a cat” named Walter.
- A very interesting article on the interplay between the trans community and Pakistan’s traditional third gender.
- Vogue heralds the return of the scrunchie.
- France’s amazing Fete des Lumieres (pardon my accent laziness). I need to see it.
- Why the lack of Indian and African faces in Dunkirk matters. A great read.
- MovieBob reviews Detroit, a new film about race-related police brutality during the 12th St riots. Bob brings up some interesting points about how the context of the film (who its creators are, etc.) has implications for its meaning on a larger cultural scale.
