Maybe people wouldn’t be so annoyed with Milo Manara’s “Spider-Woman” #1 variant cover if every series got overtly sexy variant covers—not just the ones with female leads.

This is a world I want to live in.

"It hardly mattered, though, to the now-early-teens who’d been raised on Williams’ movies. For them — for me — Williams has a place in the pantheon simply by virtue of being that rare star who seemed excited to work on projects we cared about. Giving joy is as important as evoking tears or provoking thought, and Williams’ legacy, perhaps, can be measured in the imprints his movies left in rec-room carpets, as kids parked in front of the TV rewound his movies again and again."

Dan wrote a really excellent tribute to Robin Williams. This paragraph made me cry a little.

The Kim game

emilygould:

I spent the weekend with my parents in suburban MD in advance of the DC Politics and Prose reading tonight, and I made Ruth come too though she had to go back to NY today for work. We had a fun weekend exploring DC’s cultural riches. Jk, we didn’t, instead we ate excellent free food, drank a lot…

Hi Tumblr! I’ve been away for a couple months!

I had a conversation yesterday with my boyfriend, one where he literally almost got angry at me, after I outed myself for having spent money on Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. I tried to defend myself describing how the game actually is really smart about the way it monetizes around simple wish fulfillment, the underestimated value of cosmetic modifications to avatars, and how it’s made me think Kim K. is a brilliant business person. Essentially his argument came down to his distaste for the Kardashians, and there was no cultural analysis or undergrad level “highbrow meets lowbrow” thesis I could conjure that excused the fact I spent a dozen bucks on the game, and supported her empire, to purchase cool shoes for my game avatar.

And then Emily wrote this thing expressing a similar experience and articulated it very well. So click through for all of Emily’s blogging thoughts on the Kim K. game.

(P.S. my game progress mysteriously deleted itself the other week and I still can’t get support to respond, so I’ve taken a hiatus from trying to make it to Calabasas)

"Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit."

I expected this to be critical, but instead it is beautiful.

via What’s Your Grief:

Grief is not a race with a start and finish line, it’s a labyrinth with twists and turns and dead ends. Grief is like trying to swim past the break in the ocean – you wade in but every once in a while a wave comes up and knocks you back a few feet. You’re still deeper than when you started, but not as deep as you were before the wave hit. How long will it take you to get past the break? It depends on your strength, the ocean, the tide and the weather.
Grief cannot be mapped on a timeline, although ‘Normal Grief’ should be negatively correlated with time. This means the more time that passes, the less extreme and agonizing grief feelings should be. There will still be bad days, but overall it’s average intensity will diminish. It looks a little something like this…
So feelings of grief will diminish, but not disappear. Grief is infinitas which means ‘being without finish’ . Grief doesn’t end, but with time it should look different – more peaceful, hopeful, constructive and positive.
