Happy Wednesday, guys! I hope you’re all having an awesome week. I’ve been working A LOT, but don’t think that means I haven’t had time to watch the entirety of True Detective. H. and I started it this weekend and I immediately fell for it. Rust Cohle, you are something else. If you guys ever want to talk about the show, I’m always here. On with the links!
David Lynch’s philosophy on drinking coffee is just as David Lynch-y as you would expect.
The Hairpin interviewed Julie Klausner: “I love it when smart people get together and talk about The Real Housewives or a Broadway show or Shailene Woodley, or, “Did you hear what that person said that, that’s hilarious, oh, what a crazy weirdo”—that’s my bread and butter.”
“Feminine sadness,” from Rilo Kiley to Lana Del Rey. As someone who spent a lot of time in college just listenin’ to Rilo Kiley and feelin’ sad, I get this.
Anne Helen Peterson writes about the joys of reading like a teenager: “Teens don’t have to spend an hour in traffic to attend a distant cousin’s baby shower; teens don’t have to wait in line at Ann Taylor Loft to return three pairs of shoes you ill-advisedly bought after two glasses of wine.”
James Franco reads a lot of books, but none of them are by women. Flavorwire gives him a few suggestions.
The boys and I saw The Sacrament this weekend and I really enjoyed it. I mean, it’s about a cult, so OBVIOUSLY I enjoyed it.
The term Manic Pixie Dream Girl was once useful and interesting, but now it’s just sort of lazy, dismissive, and (often) misogynist.
And finally, an interview with True Detective’s show runner. Seriously, I had a few problems with the show, but damn it if it wasn’t one of the most compelling things I’ve seen in awhile (and I watch Love It or List It, you guys).
