WHAT WOULD A MOVIE ABOUT A DATE BE LIKE // OK CUPID STYLE

The day has come: a *date* is being made into a movie. Yes, a movie. The story it is based off of is admittedly wild because this “date” involved a couple on their third-ish outing “traveling the world” while wearing the same clothes with almost nothing for twenty-one days. Yes, #whitepeopleproblems. The question: is that date worthy […]

People to Follow // Art

Lately I’ve been trying to embrace Instagram as an inspiration tool. Food recipes! Floral arrangements! DIYs! Artists! Last night while laying in bed with a bit of insomnia I stumbled across @lolagil and was completely taken into her world. Head on my pillow, I went back to her very first picture and imagined myself in […]

STEVEN HARRINGTON // SINCERELY YOURS

Steven Harrington is serious. He’s not a serious dude but he’s the type of person who is always acting in earnest, the type of person who has such an intense passion for the task at hand that you can’t ever question his integrity. He’s not lying: he’s a serious dude. This provides some context for his […]

AN IMAGINED // CONVERSATION

“Excuse me—” “What.” “I was wondering if I could have a photo with you…?” “Oh: yes! Of course! Why not!” “Should we stand right here?” They move away from the group, a distant doorframe behind them. “I think this is great.” “Cool.” “You smell good.” “Thanks,” she says, tugging the lemon scented Little Tree tied […]

THOUGHTS // NYFW 2014

• I devoted many moments of silence to the memory of Joan Rivers. She lives on in my heart in the company of fellow tragic, gone-too-soon diers Amy Winehouse, Brittany Murphy, Anna Nicole Smith, and Aaliyah. • I did not watch that Brittany Murphy movie. I am very upset and very unhappy about this. • […]

UNLOVEABLE // POST-SUMMER-ISH READING

I wish I was a teen in the late eighties and early nineties. Technically, I was a teen in the nineties (In 1999, I turned thirteen.) but my experience was more closely related to that of an aughts person, a millennial. I have never seen My So Called Life but I watched every episode of Freaks and Geeks, […]

FYF // A RE-CAP: OUR FAVORITES THROUGH THE FOG

Music festivals have their fair share of ups and downs. Lines, heat, crowds, underage drunk kids shoving their way and screaming to each other while you try to watch a band you love and that they have never heard of… there is hardly a way to have everything turn out perfect where humans are involved, […]
