three good things
1. vintage wallpaper. Tired of seeing tiny scraps cost way too much on etsy to use in collages, I've gone hunting for it myself and found this gorgeous specimen yesterday. I loved it so much, I'm thinking maybe about somehow incorporating into the cover design for in the bird museum somehow, since I'm not sure I want an actual..well..bird on the cover.
2.The City Visible: Chicago Poetry for the New Century. This was in my mailbox on Thursday, featuring work by some of my favorite Chicago gals (Kristy Odelius, Simone Muench, Michelle Taransky, Arielle Greenberg, Lina ramona Vitkauskas) I started paging through others and realized how many of these folks I don't even know are writing in this very city. I should probably get out more.
3. Fur. I'm suspicious of biopics in general, but I loved this one about Diane Arbus.. Poignant, weirdly erotic, slightly quirky. Also well-played by Kidman and directed by the director who did Secretary, so what's not to like?
