internet findings.

so, so many reasons why tom hardy is, as the saying goes, bae.

also, feministmadmax is the heroic tumblr we need, but not the one we deserve.

speaking of mad max"the people economy of mad max" ("When you are living in a post-apocalyptic world of poisoned fertility & scarce resources, controlling the people who can have babies is of the utmost importance. Those who can bear them are the means of that production. Gain control over the means of production, & you can rule the world.") & this xojane one ("As the plot hurtles screaming through the inconceivably vast desert landscape, Hardy's Max mainly accepts direction from Furiosa, offers one [important, it turns out] idea for how to proceed, & the last crucial thing he does in the film is serve in the nurturing healer role usually reserved for women in these types of action-heavy stories. Yes, really.")

emma sulkowicz is the columbia university student who has carried a twin-size mattress around campus since september to represent the weight she carries after being raped in her dorm room three years ago. she graduated recently, & carried the mattress across the stage to accept her diploma.

continuing on the topic of emma sulkowicz & her mattress performance, will the mattress make it to a museum?

"a rare user of ironic emojis": the nyt asks, in all seriousness, if grown men should use emoji. it actually turns out to be quite a good article!

are you all caught up? are you? are you?!?

...& if we're working with that theme, THIS PORTLANDIA BIT IS EXCELLENT.

vanishing new york. i only wish the pictures were larger!

a compelling argument against binge-watching tv shows. HBO CEO Richard Plepler says, "There's something very powerful about having a conversation in the culture occurring for 10 weeks, 12 weeks, 13 weeks . . . occupying social media during that time, expanding the conversation about your brand for 12 weeks . . . people enjoy the treat of waiting for the next episode."

i've been singing this song to norah lately, in part inspired by my recent viewing of this film.

"irusu: pretending to be out when someone knocks at your door." this, & other brilliant japanese words.
