"I have to say that one of the biggest changes in my lifetime, is the phenomenon of men wearing shorts. Men never wore shorts when I was young. There are few things I would rather see less, to tell you the truth. I'd just as soon see someone coming toward m...

From the archives...
This October I developed seborrheic dermatitis on my face. I've had it before, to varying degrees, and each time it returns I feel a renewed sense of dejection. It's angry and red and it spreads, like spilled ink, from the corner of my nose. Sometimes it spills down my chin.

Miranda July on Motherhood
"But as the sun rose I crested the mountain of my self-pity and remembered I was always going to die at the end of this life anyway. What did it really matter if I spent it like this—caring for this boy—as opposed to some other way? I would always be earthb...

Recent Obsessions: Gustin's Fabrics

A Dictatorship of Likes
"Culture appears more monolithic than ever, with a few gigantic corporations—Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon—presiding over unprecedented monopolies. Internet discourse has become tighter, more coercive. Search engines guide you away from peculiar words. (“...

I Suppose I Won't Deactivate my Facebook Account
We've all experienced that moment when, fed up with our Facebook experience, we think, "That's it, I'm deactivating!" Some of us actually do this. Others, like me, stick around for the next awesome post--like this photo from my friend, the writer, Rachel Po...
