Did you not realize until just this moment how much you needed Hamilton fanart as both playing cards and as a college AU? Artist birdloaf has you covered. Are you a Hamilton fan who also needs a good hate-read? I stopped reading it half-way through because I got bored, but up until then I was all:
Nicole Chung interviewed John Cho for New York Times Magazine and I’m including it because NICOLE but also for the mention of his upcoming movie that takes place in Columbus, Indiana, a small(ish) town about twenty miles away from the even smaller town where I spent my formative childhood years.
For those of you who already migrated over to Medium, did you see Mallory’s coverage of the DNC?
Later that morning we go across the street to a sort of ready-made meal outpost and as we are standing in line, my companion Laurie Penny says, “This feels like the luxury communist automat future,” and I agree, both because it feels true and also because it feels like this is the sort of conversation I should be having all the time. I remember this because it is the last coherent thought I will have for hours. I am a jellyfish, pale and aimless, trailing thoughts as I throb mindlessly in the heat. The heat is so intense that I begin to shed memories from my childhood and core principles of my personality. I have become a pair of quiet, rapidly fluttering lungs and a heart. Everything else is a waste of ATP.
The whole thing is delightful and short and you will enjoy it. I included that particular quote because of the inclusion of Laurie Penny. Her being okay in Mallory’s book gives me confidence that she’s not going to morph into a Caitlin Moran anytime soon.
There are a few Penzeys Spices lovers here and in case you’re not already on their mailing list, you might not know about their new seasoning blend. It sounds delicious and is currently available for free with a $5 minimum purchase (online coupon code 16755C, expires 7/31/16).
Farmbot. I want one.
Never a huge fan of The Simpsons (I’ve watched a few episodes here and there and enjoyed the movie), I still loved The Toast’s explorations of its minor characters. If you miss those, too, check out this collection of tweets about Marge.
Melissa Harris-Perry talks about the August issue of Elle with FKA twigs on the cover, accompanied by a questionable headline.
The Burgomaster found this I don’t even know how but I watched four episodes of it on Monday night instead of going to Pilates because I was still exhausted from Las Vegas. I’m sure it’s not everybody’s thing, but boy howdy it sure is my thing.
Speaking of personal/pet projects, do you have a website or blog you’d like me to link from this site? Let me know in the comments. I’m collecting them in a page to link up there on the left with the other pages.
