weekenders | Don't Save Me

this song is for eighty-degree summer mornings that start with spending two hours in the t-shirt you woke up in and a dance party for one.

weekend reading | Leading Lady
"That was a lovely time in my life in which I took delight, until recently, in a sort of self-destructive way. I'd be like, 'The good thing about when this relationship falls apart will be that I can be alone again and work in the middle of the night.' But it took me a while to realize that it was actually sort of an honor to share a life with this person and to figure out how to do that."
  • also I just generally love Miranda July, so I'm really excited about her new project We Think Alone.  It'll be 20 e-mails over 20 weeks in collaboration with some neat famous folks
  • I read her book No One Belongs Here More Than You during the first week I lived in Portland. I had just graduated from college, and I remember reading these words sitting on the waterfront and feeling like they were written for me.

  3. I just bought No One Belongs Here More Than You last week and I'm so excited to read it! Also, the first week of July's email project was really interesting - it makes me feel so devilish to read these messages that weren't intended for my eyes in the first place.
