a movie of a lost daughter

Have you seen the Lost Daughter? A drama video follows a private vacation professor, who meets a young woman on the beach and goes back to her childhood experiences. It completely stopped me in my tracks. (My friend Lizzy wrote after watching: “I’m not good !!!!!!”) What I found interesting was how every woman in the film changed between being seen as a “madonna” or “whore” – and once you years away from those roles, you are like… nowhere. Maybe a witch? I can’t stop thinking about the movie, and now I’m planning to watch it again and put it back on. It’s on my favorite list (along with The Father, When Harry Met Sally, and Goodfellas – all different, ha).

Dig up these New York City paintings. Pizza rat!

Cyrus Ferguson created an Instagram series called “Unintentional Sculpture Analysis,” in which he cracked down on – in global art – a variety of artwork around Brooklyn. Empty space, scaffolding, a discarded Christmas tree, all of which are masterpieces with a LOT to take out. I laughed a lot when I saw this.

caramel leaves

I read about Caramelo tortillas in the Lottie + Doof holiday gift guide and ordered three Alex packs. Made with duck fat, lard or avocado oil, tortillas taste amazing – very thin, very chewy, very sweet. Made in Kansas City by Mexican-born Ruben Leal, who missed the kind of tortilla he ate growing up. Such a wonderful gift for a food lover, is it not?

PS Lots of fun stuff, and a black book that I can’t imagine.
