Ah, it’s the weekend! I hope yours is a delight.
I also rounded up some cute sandals!
JUICY, at Esquire: The Secret Oral History of Bennington: The 1980s’ Most Decadent College
At LAST! At the New York Times: “Margaret Leslie Davis, the author of “The Lost Gutenberg: The Astounding Story of One Book’s Five-Hundred-Year Odyssey,” has tracked down the history of a Gutenberg Bible, composing a lively tale of historical innovation, the thrill of the bibliophile’s hunt, greed and betrayal. “
At Lainey, Kit Harington has gone into rehab.
Logistics! At the Washington Post, a look at the complex LAUNDRY SYSTEMS of the French Open, and other major tennis tournaments. (Clay is hard to get out!)
This is VERY VERY INTERESTING, at Vanity Fair: Can J. Crew Find Itself—and Its Customers—Again?
The New York Times has a piece where the Central Park Five discuss their lives and story with the actors who play them in the Netflix miniseries, When They See Us, and it’s very good. (The miniseries is out today, in fact.)
Also at Lainey, I thought this was interesting: Zoe Kravitz and the celebrity low-key wedding trend.
This is super interesting, at the Washington Post: What a stolen Alexander Hamilton letter reveals about the sticky business of fine art. To wit: “It’s just the latest drama for the Alexandria auction house, which has also handled a stolen Renoir, a Russian painting looted during World War II, an original Andy Warhol and historic urns from Arlington Cemetery. The world of fine arts can be intimidating, puzzling — and sometimes kind of sketchy.”
This headline made me laugh, at Pajiba: Look. Kate Hudson(s) Love Leggings. Deal With it OK?
Great, at The Daily Beast: The Forgotten Tale of How Black Psychiatrists Helped Make ‘Sesame Street’
I ALSO chuckled at this one, at Dlisted: Cara Delevingne And Ashley Benson Bought A Sex Bench (it’s like a full-on sex bench, a thing I didn’t really know existed. A sex SWING, sure, but I was unaware of how much, uh, sex furniture existed until this week).
At Socialite Life, this is a real story (and aspects of it are really serious) but it also reads like a Mad Lib: Mandy Moore Reaches Mount Everest Base Camp as Death Toll Rises to 11 This Season. There are some serious issues afoot with Mount Everest at the moment, and while I really like Mandy Moore and I understand and respect why she wanted to do this — it’s obviously a great item for a bucket list! – and I also get why she wanted to tell the world about it, I wonder if it’s responsible at this point to promote making this climb?
Important, at Vulture: Every Spice Girls Song, Ranked. I actually think I agree with the top three, which hardly ever happens with lists like these!
ALSO important, ALSO at Vulture: The Good Fight Is Coming to Real CBS So You Can’t Deny It Actually Exists
This also reads like a Mad Lib, at Celebitchy: Amy Heckerling’s daughter slaps back at Chris Kattan’s account of her mom. That is not a feud I could have predicted! This story is also…messy as hell?
On the SNL topic, this is very good at Polygon: The Saturday Night Live queer canon
At The Mary Sue: Harrison Ford Started the Millennium Falcon at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
