Fug File: Fugs

Fugs and Pieces: October 9th, 2015

Hooray, it’s Friday!

–Oooh, look at these beautiful, award-winning restaurants and bars! (CNN)

– Remember last week, when we were talking about podcasts? Vulture names The One Podcast to Start With, Across 24 Topics. (I started listening to Criminal this week — I really like it!)

– Um, obviously: If Tilda Swinton Were Your Girlfriend (The Toast)

– Also at The Toast, Things I Have Yelled At My Television, Which Cannot Hear Me, While Watching “Miss Fisher’s Mysteries” During My Convalescence

– Have you seen the trailer for the Victorian Sherlock special? (Lainey)

– I love this, at Annyas: Handlettered logos from defunct department stores

This piece at Salon about Ryan Murphy articulates why I, personally, am not watching any of his shows this fall season.

– This week’s recipe is more like recipeS, at Camille Styles: FOOTBALL FOOD.

– At Pajiba: Emma Stone Can’t Dance: Do We Care? (We don’t.)

– USA! USA! Via the Los Angeles Times: 2 L.A. men win gold at the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Austria

Here’s Tom Hiddleston with a cat. You’re welcome! (Celebitchy)

– VERY IMPORTANT SCIENCE at BBC America: Who’s Your British Celebrity Husband? I got Idris Elba!!!!!!

– Have I mentioned that, just as I love articles about packing, I LOVE articles where people — ANY people, ALL people  — explain what beauty products they use? This week, I enjoyed this one, at The Stripe.

– It feels so right that this article — about great suede jackets — references the Seinfeld wherein Jerry falls for one, given that I literally saw that episode in reruns on Wednesday night, the night AFTER this piece ran. Is The New Potato conjuring Seinfeld episodes?

– At Vanity Fair, I enjoyed this piece about Rifle Paper Co. I have a card from their line sitting on my desk right now.



Royals Round-Up, October 9th, 2015

Once again, this week is CHOCKABLOCK with Prince Harry.  News of note: Wills and Kate have an event on Saturday — and might be going to the rugby that night — so pop by over the weekend to eyeball whatever they get up to, as I shall update over the weekend for your pleasure. (Prince Nicolas of Sweden is being christened on Sunday, but I have no idea how many pictures are going to float in for me from that, so we’ll more than likely cover it in the next Royals Round-Up, just FYI.) Also in today’s slideshow: short skirts! Stocking caps! Wallpaper!

And elsewhere:

– You can eyeball Crown Princess Mary’s latest Professional Lady Outfit over at Royalista.

– And Order of Splendor has great coverage of a variety of Openings of Parliaments.

– This, at the Wall Street Journal, is SO good: How a New York DJ Turned Earl Revived an English Manor.

– I very much want to see King Charles III on Broadway; Glamour talks to their Kate Middleton.

– Sophie Wessex has been on a trip to Qatar. (The Express)

– Also at The Express, this is one of those stories I wish I’d read while we were writing The Royal We, because it has wee details in it that amuse me. It’s about Prince Charles hating Harry’s Secret Smoking Habits.

– Socialite Life has more pics of the Prince Carl-Philip/Sofia trip!

– And Hello! has more details on Harry and William’s Hard Hat Adventure of last week.

– I’m looking forward to these pieces at The Court Jeweller, because they will be covering something we don’t see much of, and I think they’ll prove interesting. To wit: “This October, we’re going to be delving into the bejeweled history of one of the most intriguing royal women of the twentieth century: Farah Pahlavi, the former empress of Iran. We’re beginning with the jewels she wore on the day she joined the imperial family: her wedding day.”

– This is awesome, at Fashionista: Go Inside the World Of June Kenton, H.M. Queen Elizabeth II’s Royal Bra Fitter

This is…well, it’s memorable, anyway? I AM always yapping on about being memorable, after all.
