“Bon Iver, “For Emma Forever Ago” ” by Melissa McCracken, interviewed below
A Light Breakfast
Lunchtime Reads
A little long, a little hard, these are some reads to remind you what you’re working towards halfway through your day –
  • “It’s not a question of them knowing how to save their lives. It’s a question of them knowing if their lives are worth saving.” This is a lengthy but worthwhile look at how the minute traumas of minority follow you into adulthood.
  • “No one tells you that the most complicated part isn’t moving on, it’s starting over.” The many forms abuse can take, in an essay by Katherine Laidlaw.
  • Serial Killers as a product of consumerism, and how they’ve turned into a capitalist commodity (featuring Sacramento’s famed ‘Vampire Killer’ Richard Chase, alumni of my high school).

Who Said No Politics at Dinner?

Sleep On It

  • “We marry the wrong people because we don’t associate being loved with feeling happy.”
  • “I notice, and I begin to see the outline of the best friend, the girl she shaped herself around, according to. For so many women, the process of becoming requires two. It’s not hard to make out the marks the other one left.”

Goodnight, lovelies,
Mo
