I love the wallpapers Tuesday Bassen designed for Tinybop / Mr. Printables / shape party / children's books as interior inspiration / beautifully photographed fad diets / confetti "shake it" present wrapping / a new addition to Diana's comparison series / Samantha Pleet's Arcadia film and collection / vintage Dutch package designs / Tuca the Toucan / if you live in Los Angeles you should go to Ann's show


What's in Prince's fridge? / a Mary Poppins musical remix-ish thing / Cate Le Bon / Laura Marling's new music video (plus a new video from Solange) / the first time I went to a Broadway show I got to sit in the front row and make eye contact with Norbert Leo Butz while he pelvic thrusted in a dance routine - I've been a fan ever since (that's a light hearted sentence, but part of this article is very sad) / As much as I love Louis C.K., I don't agree with his widely circulated cellphone opinions. Kids were mean before there were cellphones. Whenever I was sitting around with nothing to do (on a train / in a waiting room / etc.) before I had a one, I pulled out a book or wrote in a notebook - does that mean that I don't know how to "be a person" - MAYBE? And it kills me that some of the people that tweet this Louie thing are the same people who tweet articles about how facebook makes you depressed. So wait - what is it? Do cellphones make you sad.... OR do they make you forget about your sadness? Also, there's such a propensity in stand-up comedy to relish being sad / depressed / fucked-up psychologically. Like the notion that all the great comedians come from shitty backgrounds - that you can't be funny if you had a happy childhood. I believe I've read Tina Fey calling bullshit on that theory... and I think this phone thing ties into that somehow. I appreciate the catharsis in having a good cry and the need to feel all the feelings, but if my cellphone can cheer me up when I'm having a rough moment I'm going to pull that sucker out / .... branching off of that, here's "Louis C.K. is Wrong About Cell Phones" at Slate


a porcupine eating banana in his fort / I backed the awesomely-illustrated Downton-Abbey-esque Lords & Ladies game on kickstarter / block quilt patio diy / a new-to-me food blog - The Sugar Hit / the everlasting crop top / bookshelfies / Wholier-Than-Thou / I want to wear this dress / cat encounters
