It seems like every time I’ve been posting recently it’s been prefaced by an apology about my lack of consistency. I’m here again and again with another excuse- you would think being homebound with a bad ankle would lead to more posting rather than less, but instead I’ve just generally been very off my game for the last week. Thankfully I’m starting to shape up and am more or less ready to rejoin the land of the living/productive, which is good because we’ve got some family trips lined up which I would never for the life of me be missing.
But that does also mean I’m unlikely to be posting consistently for another week and a half. The boondocks of PA doesn’t even have phone connection, much less WiFi.
See you on the other side!
In the meantime, I’ve amassed a hideous army of motley links from around the interwebs.
Why so many posts about Instagram?
- Intimidatingly stylish Insta-kids. I do not follow these small people but I do have to say that Jayde Robinson looks like the cutest thing ever.
- Is ‘personal taste’ being replaced by an algorithm?
- The Call Me By Your Name x Monet mashup you didn’t know you needed. Summer vibe.
- Some pretty art photos.
Peace and Acceptance:
- “It’s two years after Pulse and too little has changed.”
- On Polyamorous relationships.
- 7 LGBTQIA stories to celebrate Pride
- The trouble with Hollywood’s gender flips: “These reboots require women to relive men’s stories instead of fashioning their own. And they’re subtly expected to fix these old films, to neutralize their sexism and infuse them with feminism, to rebuild them into good movies with good politics, too. They have to do everything the men did, except backwards and with ideals.”
- The Pop Culture Detective strikes again! The topic: Abduction as Romance.
- The Hate U Give. This looks pretty great.
- What is Cinemascore?
- Real men smell like flowers.
- Testing the new Glossier cloud paints on different skin tones. Dawn looks pretty amazing on darker skin, IMO.
- My personal kama sutra.
- There’s a garden on top of Fenway (how did I miss this?!) and the truth about New Haven’s masked boombox man.
