hello-the-future:

Mothers play an important role as the heart of the home, but this in no way lessens the equally important role fathers should play, as head of the home, in nurturing, training, and loving their children.

ALL THE MOTHERS IN DISNEY ARE DEAD

Denis Johnson, Jesus’ Son

Fun story: Johnson published this book to pay his tax bill:


  Jesus’ Son was an act of literary desperation. There had been a second divorce and a call from the IRS asking him to please pay the $10,000 he owed. Bankrupt, Johnson turned to some “memories” he’d jotted down years back — vignettes of his drug-abusing past that he never considered publishing — and sent them to The New Yorker. To his surprise, several were accepted. Fortified with $4,000, Johnson contacted Jonathan Galassi, his editor and the president of Farrar, Straus & Giroux. “I told him, ‘I’ll make you a book of short stories; all you have to do is pay off the IRS.’”


And (can’t find the source for this quote, but it’s posted all over):


  What’s funny about Jesus’ Son is that I never even wrote that book, I just wrote it down. I would tell these stories apropos of nothing about when I was drinking and using and people would say, “You should write these things down.” I was probably 35 when I wrote the first story. The voice is kind of a mix in that it has a young voice, but it’s also someone who’s looking back. I like that kind of double vision. So I worked on them once in a while, then I started using stories I heard other people tell, and then I started making some up. Pretty soon it was fiction. Then I just forgot about it. I thought, I’m not going to parade my defects, my history of being a spiritual cripple, out in front of a lot of other people..

Had I Known LinkedIn Was Notifying People Every Time I Viewed Their Profile I Would Have Made Some Different Choices These Last Six Months

hothotphone:

Dear Jamie,

Hi! How are you? Figured I’d drop a little note, just to catch up.

Hey, you know what I heard the other day? That every time you view someone’s LinkedIn profile, they get a notification. Every single time. I wonder if that’s true, I had no idea. Seems like an invasion of…

American Girl brought Samantha out of the vault and updated her look.
They also gave her some vomit-worthy copy: “I’m all heart and always ready to lend a hand to somebody in need.” What happened to Samantha being a “bright Victorian beauty” with privilege issues and a grumpy streak?
She looks vapid now. Like she’s coming to us from the uncanny valley of the dolls.
