Weekend Reading

Obviously opening with this….

And there are going to be lots of links about it, because HEART EYES.

Here’s all the Formation ones (I’m posting these with no comments, because Formation isn’t for me. So just read them all. Ha)…

Four Women On What Formation Means To Them // Beyoncé and #BlackLivesMatter // Why Beyoncé’s Formation Matters For Girls Like Me // Considering “Formation” And The Politics Of A Black Woman Pop Star // Hot Sauce in Her Bag

And the rest… This excellent GQ Bieber profile // Why Won’t Hipsters Integrate? // If Jane Austen Got Feedback From Some Guy In A Writing Workshop // Tongue Poetry – “tongue-poetry is what makes good writing so, so much bigger than us. We’re part of that poem or story, and we’re immersed in a world where words like husk, brisk and rust are textures, and lips and kisses are sticky liquorice” // Scottish Twitter – this is hilarious // Kentucky women are asking Governor Matt Bevin questions about their vaginas #(askBevinaboutmyvag is the best hashtag I’ve seen for a while) // A civil servant in Spain took SIX YEARS off, and no one noticed // Finally, Bernie Sanders’ new campaign video is heartbreaking (seriously; don’t watch it anywhere you care if people see you crying, cause je.sus.)

Weekend Reading

I’ve had a good week this week; I shuffled my portfolio site about a bit, and ordered some moo cards, which is exciting! (I have no idea who I’m going to give them to yet, but having them means I can!) I had a lovely dinner out with Brookester, in which I went on a rant about how goats cheese is better than regular cheese because goats are intrinsically happy animals, and then I made her sign up to a yoga course with me so that we can be Bendy and Calm. Poor woman.

I’ve also read a ton of awesome stuff, and lots of “how to’s”, this week, but have some happy goats first…

How to be a Productivity Unicorn + Have we reached “Peak Vegetarianism”+ How to be a Poet and a Human Being + Speaking of poets, William Carlos Williams becomes a meme + I am saving up s2 of True Detective, but I did read The Trouble with True Detective + Having brains/feelings/people is exhausting. How to Get Out of Your Head, & How to Trust Your Brain + Watch the books in Wes Anderson’s films + I’d like to move into Kate gh0stparties’ bathroom now please.

Weekend Reading

It’s Saturday again already?! Ugh. I’m spending my whole weekend writing, because deadlines, but this is what I’ve been reading this week…

I should really say YAY FOXES! Following that last post! + I’d have loved to go to Poppadom Preach, it all looks AMAZING + Kristen Stewart’s Marie Claire interview + The Key to Rereading + Jezebel basically wrote my life with this: Anthropologie: when you long to be a French gamine + Dreams are Boring + I subscribed to The New Inquiry this week, and the new issue is GOOOOOOD 🙂
