Today I wrote about Amanda Bynes & The Internet Teens saving the world with their selfies.
For more good writing about selfie culture and how we treat women both online and off, read what Lily wrote on Grimes, Amanda Bynes, and Being Seen.

No idea who this kid is

I was at a Farm King in western Illinois last week, looking for the knife section (turns out the knife section is basically just an afterthought in the rifle section, long story, separate post) when I found myself in the hat section. I have never been a hat person but I was standing there, looking at these hats and I suddenly thought: One of these hats is mine. It was kind of the only thing I have been really sure of in a long time.

Anyway, very excited about my new hat.

—The Person Who Lives

This is me, reading “The Person Who Lives” from Touch Anything Except Me.

Works best with headphones, I still haven’t figured out how to record vocals like a normal human.

The celebrity breakup is like a baby, born from the celebrity romance. The celebrities maintain joint custody of the baby, and they shuttle it back and forth to each other, with nasty little notes pinned to its bib.

This is the opposite of how relationships work for regular humans. For us it’s the waiting to be with that person, the hoping they will return our affection, the wondering if they are ever going to fucking notice how many of their tweets we are faving, that lasts forever. The breakup is the part we just want to be on the other side of as quickly as possible.

Kevin Fanning, “How We Break Up.”

I want to wave this piece in the face of every single person who’s told me it’s vapid and pointless to write about pop culture. In other words, a lot of people.

HEY I wrote this thing about celebrity relationships vs real human relationships. Between you and me and tumblr, the idea of female celebrities taking media offensives against the dudes who wronged them is really interesting and I wish I’d dug into What It Means a little more. Maybe later.
