Happy weekend friends!
As you read this, I’m a couple hours east of Los Angeles at Big Bear Lake! John and I are camping for the weekend (will share photos soon!), but I planned out some good interweb finds for you in advance.
Check ‘em out:
An interesting article about the lack of strong female characters in films:
“Bringing in a Strong Female Character™ isn’t actually a feminist statement, or an inclusionary statement, or even a basic equality statement, if the character doesn’t have any reason to be in the story except to let filmmakers point at her on the poster and say ‘See? This film totally respects strong women!’”
OK Go’s new video for “The Writing’s on the Wall” is so darn brilliant and clever. I’d love to be on set for something like that.
I’ve been fantasizing about New Orleans lately. (The architecture! Swoon!) So I loved coming across this gorgeous NOLA house tour.
Lauren talks about the lost art of eating in, and I couldn’t agree more myself. Cooking at home is so much fun!
Genius: summer camps for adults. YES, PLEASE.
Bad Photoshopping aside, this experiment on different beauty standards around the world was pretty fascinating (and hilarious in its ridiculousness).
So cool! The history behind Zzyzx Road. We passed this exit on our way to L.A. out of Las Vegas. I had no idea what it was.
That’s all for this week! I’ll have some photos to share on Tuesday when—gasp!—it’ll already be July.
