"

Shakespeare is commended to his or their proper androgyny in this book. In this book, Ginsberg is better and gayer than Ginsberg. This book is so happy it’s beyond gay.

Gender is nothing compared to this book.

"

— Dodie Bellamy – Cunt Norton

A few years ago I had the pleasure of working on a book about Lella Vignelli for the Hall of Femmes series on female designers. I spent several afternoons interviewing Lella and her husband Massimo at their house in New York City. They were both quite old at this point and Lella was in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, though still sharp.
Their incredibly integrated approach to life, work and design impressed me greatly – there was nary a thing in their live-work space that wasn’t designed by them – as did Massimo’s love and respect for his wife and their beautiful collaboration as life partners and partners in design. They’d been together for over 50 years.

Massimo passed away the other day, I was sad to hear the news, though it would be difficult to imagine a fuller life lived.

Serious Business, Summer Pierre

(via nevver)

"In 2007, she started a blog called ‘The Alternate Side Parking Reader,’ which has covered topics like the optimal time of day to find a parking spot, getting her car towed by a ‘Sex and the City’ film crew, and earning bathroom privileges at a local Greek restaurant after helping a waiter squeeze into a spot. ‘Some people think it’s a dull subject,’ Norris said. ‘But I never tire of it. It’s like grammar.’,

Alternate side parking is one of those mysteries of New York City culture that slowly reveals itself to you over time. For me, a lengthy relationship with someone whose days revolved around moving their car inducted me into it.

"My plan was never to get married. I was going to be an art monster instead. Women almost never become art monsters because art monsters only concern themselves with art, never mundane things. Nabokov didn’t even fold his own umbrella. Vera licked his stamps for him."

Jenny Offill Dept. of Speculation

from Koa Beck’s article "The Legend of Vera Nabokov," The Atlantic

On why every writer needs a Vera. It somewhat disturbs me that the article concludes with the following, “Marrying a Vera might not be possible,” Weiner concludes. “Hiring one, though—maybe that’s the new, politically correct dream.”

Gender parity and equitable partnership for a select few achieved by the sacrifice of others?

A few weeks ago my former landlord hit the headlines in NYC because he was kidnapped and murdered. Here’s what I wrote about it. (In Swedish)

Chantal Akerman’s 1977 film “News from Home,” invites viewers to experience New York City from inside the outsider. 

One of my favorite weirdo art movies ever. Go see it if you can.
