Sometimes time feels like the enemy, but I appreciate that it’s at least been divided into increments of minutes, hours, days, weeks, and so on. These time slots allow for a palate cleanse whenever we choose, a chance to start fresh, or over entirely–if we’d like. In honor of Monday, let’s press the reset button and start anew with some inspiring images, reads, films, and tunes.
Tricot Stories, shot by Dan Mortensen for Vogue Italia October 2013 (click to enlarge)
1. “Was Salinger Too Pure for This World?” by Joyce Manard, The New York Times – A startling perspective on the author that too many people refuse to critique, because, well, they like his art.
2. “Is Drake the Rap Game Taylor Swift?” by Jody Rosen, New York Magazine – Drake’s new album is almost entirely great, but this is a really interesting analysis of it. Rosen gives him credit where it’s due but calls him out on things I probably wouldn’t have caught myself.
3. “What War Means” by Frank Bruni, The New York Times – Anything written by main man Bruni needs no introduction or explanation. Just read it.
WATCH, IN YOUR NON-EXISTENT FREE TIME:
Easily digestible? Side Effects. I know it’s old news but I just watched it and found it to be the perfect respite from reality that I needed–both thrilling and fun. And, if nothing else, Jude Law and Rooney Mara are always fun to watch.
Less so? Starlet. I wasn’t expecting much from this movie, perhaps because models-turned-actresses have a tendency to suck more often than not. Dree Hemingway, however, does well in this slow-boiled story which, though not profound, is truly alluring and worth the molasses-like time it takes to get through it.
A simple n’ lovely little cover of the best Mariah Carey jam…
And something much trippier…
