five bits out of context

  1. Ruth Bourdain: "Happy Bastille Day everyone! I’m going to celebrate by curling up in bed with my 30 lb foie gras pillow and French flag blanket and watch Jacques Tati movies while stoned."

  2. Speaking of foie gras, all it takes is one link from Waxy and I spend the whole day staring at my screen, worrying about my health.

  3. The How to trick people into thinking you're good looking video is excellent, and not quite what the title implies. The closer is a kicker.

  4. This is kind of a big deal, if you're into this sort of thing: Long-hidden Diebenkorns surface at Hirshhorn, complete with photos. They're gorgeous.

  5. I like Battelle's bit on checking into states of mind. Now: mayor of teeth grinding. Later: mayor of scotch-fueled haze?
