Stuff I’m reading

This interview with Jack Antonoff made me feel guilty about not liking fun. (the band, not the general activity)

Rights belong to the publisher and author

This book. I liked it at first but now, it’s slowly killing me. I might hate it (but not as much as this book).

This interview with Susan Sarandon. Just when I thought I couldn’t love her more. Such candor!

These tweets about life in NYC.

This essay: “I’m having an abortion this weekend” by Jenny Kutner.

What are you reading? Give me something good!

Things I don’t understand: Alexa Chung

I don’t have much, if any, tolerance for these famous-for-being-famous types. Kardashians, Jersey Shore folks, no. I don’t watch their shows and never have.

So who is this Alexa Chung person certain media outlets keep forcing my way?

Quotes like these from a recent New York Magazine feature leave me with one word echoing in my head: insufferable

“I play guitar a bit. I’m trying to learn drums—I feel like I can play violin. I’ve never tried, but I just feel like I can”

Further:

She has no stylist and makes it a point to wear outfits more than once. “That’s what you do in real life,” she says with a shrug.

I guess I’m stuck with her for a while: Alexa has a book coming out in September. I’ll pass.
