Happy Thanksgiving to our American readers! May your long weekend be peaceful and delicious. We’re taking off early for the holiday, but I’ve got some Kate Stuff to cover on Friday, and we may have some bits and bobs for you between now and Monday, so come on by if you get bored.
And if you are bored:
Heather and I wrote up the best and worst looks from the AMAs this weekend for Cosmo!
This is the most amazing piece, at Gizmodo, and I really want everyone to read it: The Last of the Iron Lungs. (That’s not a metaphor. This article is literally about the last living people who still use iron lungs.)
TIMELY! It’s the Celebrity Perv Apology Generator.
Do you enjoy the internet? Have you kind of been ignoring this whole Net Neutrality thing that’s happening because you have too much other stuff on your plate to deal with right now? Well, New York has a good piece about it to get you all caught up. Getting rid of it is really gonna screw up your Netflix. (And make it even harder for sites like this one to stay in business.)
At Lainey: Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky have broken up and despite the fact that I don’t know either of them, I feel confident in saying that this is for the best.
FESTIVE! At The Cut: Watch How Bergdorf Goodman’s Holiday Windows Were Made
At The New Yorker: An Unabashed Appreciation of Smitten Kitchen, the Ur-Food Blog
At the New York Times, this headline is an amazing pun (and I think you’ll enjoy the article): The Culture Is Changing, With Feminist Cheese.
Town & Country brings us a photographic history of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which feels very apt this week.
This should go well. At the Washington Post: This man is about to launch himself in his homemade rocket to prove the Earth is flat. I have so many questions.
I’m going to share with you the lede of this lovely and romantic story on NPR: “They were once Olympic rivals — one the captain of the U.S. women’s hockey team, the other the captain of Canada’s women’s hockey team. But now Julie Chu and Caroline Ouellette are celebrating the birth of their daughter, and they’re melting hockey fans’ hearts.”
At Celebitchy, Paris Hilton claims that she and Britney invented the selfie, which…is not true, because everyone I know took photos of themselves thusly pre-iPhone, too. Oh, Paris. Never change.
At Vulture, this is exactly what you need if you’re planning on staying home ALL weekend: Every Netflix Original Movie, Ranked. (I disagree with number one, although I agree that film is good.)
