Gems of the Week

We Never Sleep (spring / summer 2015).

This post has been percolating for weeks, so a lot of this stuff is probably "old news."

+ this was very light image-wise, but I've been pinning a lot... check 'em out here.

ART, DESIGN, ILLUSTRATION, ETC.

"Robert Plant" / adding googley eyes to modern art / an interview with Martha Porter of Buried Diamond / Matisse shopping bags / Dot magazine (for pre-schoolers) / paper cut illustrations / a butt pin / Andy Warhol sunglasses / Literalogue / a new comic by Lizzy Stewart / food in art / Wee Hee Hees / Peter Pan prints / Kayla Mattes / Vans x Murakami / make your own Gemma Correll pug comic / dream bag

MOVIES + TV + PEOPLE THAT WORK AS ACTORS + THINGS LIKE THAT

an interview with Ex Machina's production designer / Val Kilmer and Will Forte almost applied to be on Amazing Race together / on Adventure Time winning a Peabody award / love Grey's Anatomy or loathe Grey's Anatomy, you have to admit that if the writers can make people care so much about the death of a fictional character, they're doing something right (I will watch Grey's Anatomy until it ends--it's too late to stop now + <3 Karev <3 forever) / why Sansa Stark deserves the throne / The Great Mouse Detective is great / good for Elizabeth Banks / what would Veronica Corningstone wear? / "a romantic comedy made by someone who’s researched human behavior but had very few brushes with it in person" - on Aloha / disappointing and exciting / The Grand Overlook Hotel

MAD MEN

"the oral history" / some of the costumes were donated (I think that's so cool) / the music / the first and last appearances / young Pete / random comment - I know that some people think that Peggy and Stan ending up together is too much of a romantic comedy ending, but idgaf - it made me so happy that I cried

BOOKS & WRITERS & READING & THE SORT

How 15 Minutes Of Internet Fame Did Nothing For My Books / CookFiction / on rereading / no comment (liked this, although I think comments should be done away with altogether) / an interview with Christopher Silas Neal and another with Carson Ellis and yet another with Jen Corace

ETC.

ART + ILLUSTRATION + DESIGN-Y THINGS


MOVIES / TV / ACTORS / THE SUCH
