MOVIES / TV / ACTORS / THAT SORT OF THING

"this kind of deliberate carelessness can certainly look very cool, especially in Fosse’s hands, but that was just part of his act—the theatricalization of indifference—because if you wiped away a little of his pancake, you could tell that he always cared" on All That Jazz at The Criterion Collection / I will love My Best Friend's Wedding forever, but I also accept that portions of it are ridiculous / The Best Time I Did Yoga With Someone From Friday Night Lights / Jaws and the Sound of Dread and Wonder / Why Can't I Be You: Emily Nussbaum / "Hartmanism — the art of being unctuous" / goddamn it / Matt Zoller Seitz on The Sopranos / "I’ve never seen a film like Wild where the woman ends up with no man, no money, no family, no opportunity, but she still has a happy ending" / yay / "a musical journey through seven seasons of Rory Gilmore's relationships"

DESIGN / ART / ILLUSTRATION / THE SUCH


BOOKS / WRITING / SO ON

book trailers for Telephone and Sam and Dave Dig a Hole / "There are many books that I admire but to which I am not indebted, or for which I feel little affection.
