DIS week: Maybe This Is Love


Did you watch that lady gaga muppet special thing? Neither did I. Here are some other things I don’t care about this week:

Black Friday: Happy Black Friday! Which in itself is an oxymoron, but whatever. Hope you got that thing you wanted for that really good price. Hope it was worth it standing in the cold holding that sad latte while I was inside on my 4th serving of pumpkin pie. Hope all your dreams came true. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case for some Black Friday shoppers, and Black Friday Death Count is here to remind you why this Friday is especially black. I know, its #dark, but like…

Bae u Nasty: Don’t get me wrong, I love Instagram – mostly because I love a good caption. But with the *~holiday season~* now official here & here to stay, we can expect an increased slough of horrible food pics (foodstagrams? idek anymore) on our feed. Thankfully, the account Cooking For Bae is keeping a diligent record of the nastiest food on the IG – I literally vomited the minute I saw the account. Hopefully they’ll be gracious enough to spare Martha Stewart a spot on the list because as we all know she is #immaculada #cannotbetouched an #angel from #heaven.

Ask Jeeves: One of the worst parts about any family reunion (with or without turkey) is the questions: Where your boyfriend at? What you doin with your life? Why you so fat? (Don’t pretend like this is just me okay). Well the internet exists for one reason, and that is to help YOU get MARRIED. But before we talk about the ring, here’s some awesome advice from our friends from internet on dating, dressing, and waking up:

10 reasons to date a fashion girl

5 reasons to date a girl with an eating disorder

23 Trends Men Hate (but women love!!!) 

23 Signs You’re A Morning Person [Ok maybe this is unrelated but this article is probably the most irrelevant thing I’ve ever read and I just needed to share it with everyone. Also what is this creepy obsession with the number 23, internet?]

Got all of that? Good. Well, according to this Facebook data, I’m not getting married save a boyfriend anytime soon, so good luck to you and yours I GUESS.

#FF: For my lil’ latkes – Happy Hanukkah!! Here’s a present from me to you on this 3rd cRaZy NiGhT of Lights: Porn 4 Jews. Yo that bagel is making me feel some kind of way…


And for the rest of you non-chosen people, ugly renaissance babies. That way I felt seconds ago has completely escaped me, so thank you 14th – 17th century Europe.


True Love: And to round out this week, a side by side comparison of the masterpieces that are Bound 2 and Bound 3. I don’t know about you but I loved both of them, and so did this person. At least I think he did. And apparently so did Kanye. So maybe we can all be friends after all?

nils lange + saliva : l’eau des algues

L’Eau des Algues Two alchemists already aware of each other’s Instagrams meet for the first time in a gay sauna. They are swimming; it’s the Hood By Air afterparty in Paris.

They are performing the perfume titled “L’eau des Algues.” Head notes: Zürich… [read more »]

Toward a Low Key Voting System Where Votes Are Actually Considered | Adrian Massey

While reading A Very Short Introduction to Game Theory, I came across the following passage, “If you want people to vote, we need to move to a more decentralized system in which every vote really does count enough to outweigh the lack of enthusiasm for voting which so many people obviously feel…Simply repeating the slogan that ‘every vote counts’ isn’t ever going to work, because it isn’t true.” I was jarred. For me, anecdotally knowing… [read more »]

Tough Luck | Tyler Reinhard

When life is being super unfair, just do what we all do: suffer the consequences. I wake up and the first thing I do is check my phone. A convenient euphemism for using Facebook’s machine learning techniques to discover which 300 entries are statistically most likely to stand out from the tens of thousands of brain dumps my friends and family have produced over the last 48 hours. Impressed by what Facebook provides, I think… [read more »]

America Is Hard to See: A Guide to not being depressed about US electoral politics this November

In order to make sense of state politics in the birthplace of statistical marketing and the internet, one has to be wary of the effects of these technologies on the country’s popular media. In a time when our news and advertisements are tailored to our pre-recorded political opinions, it can be especially difficult to empathize with differing political views. Likewise, learning about the histories of state politics is not encouraged by platforms that profit from… [read more »]

On self-care and the election | Eva Saelens

We can get together and laugh about it. We can heave sighs and express disbelief, but it’s never enough. This presidential election year has lasted for years, and they sit on citizens like a slick film. We feel touched by an unshakable germ, invaded by a blood-sucker, afflicted by a social cancer, drained of the plump vitality of life and the amazing liberty of choices, and transformed into a cynical, depressed shrivel. After being touched… [read more »]

What is a piece of clothing that “works”? Who is working whom? Is the one who poses the one who actually “works” hardest? The S/S 2017 collection of Berlin-based, Swedish- Vietnamese designer NHU DUONG entitled ‘WORK COLLECTION’ plays with the ideas of professionalism, leisure and appropriateness through a range of garments that are inspired by work outfits and hobby uniforms. Overalls, raw denim outfits, kung-fu pyjamas, biker pants, baggy tights and gloves, bomber-jackets, bomber suits,… [read more »]

Preparing to Welcome the Chthulucene | Agustina Zegers

Preparing to Welcome the Chthulucene is a text made up of living exercises to accompany Haraway’s theorization of the Chthulucene and her upcoming book Staying With the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene. Haraway posits that not only should we name the Anthropocene carefully (including the terms Capitalocene and Plantationocene within its narrative) but that we should also be using this crucial ecological timeframe to move towards a dynamically multi-species, “sym-chtonic“, sym-poietic future: the Chthulucene.… [read more »]
