  • Secrets of Princeton. As a PU grad, I’ll vouch for the accuracy of this one.
  • Lloyd Fonvielle is inspired by a book about the West by Frederick Law Olmstead, a great American artist best-known as the co-designer of NYC’s Central Park.
  • Primal/Paleo guru Mark Sisson responds to some good questions, as well as to a critique of the Paleo movement.
  • Rant Du Jour. Link tks to Malcolm Ryder.
  • Really looking forward to William Friedkin’s memoir. I wrote about “Killer Joe” here.
  • Martha Esersky Lorden recalls the cake-mix desserts of the 1950s.
  • What’s it like to revisit an Israeli commune where you once spent an idealistic summer?
  • Photos from inside Cass Gilbert’s great Woolworth Building.
  • This fun interview with the guy behind the hot Manhattan cocktail place Pouring Ribbons (which I teased here) offers an interesting snapshot of life in the artisanal food world.
  • Steve Sailer wonders why Mark Zuckerberg has gotten behind the legalize-all-immigrants campaign.
  • Netflix Instant Choice: “Lord Love a Duck.” A black-comedy/satire of teen America (as well as a spoof of American teen movies) circa the early ’60s — think “Dr. Strangelove” meets “How to Stuff a Wild Bikini” — George Axelrod’s comedy holds a special place in many viewers’ hearts.  At its worst, it’s frenetic and scattershot; at its nutty best it’s high comedy of a very dizzy sort. Tuesday Weld is perfectly amazing as the sexy-banal girl at its center.

Onetime media flunky and movie buff and very glad to have left that mess behind. Formerly Michael Blowhard of the cultureblog 2Blowhards.com. Now a rootless parasite and bon vivant on a quest to find the perfectly-crafted artisanal cocktail.

    Ah, Tuesday Weld. Those were the days, my friends, we’ll not see their like again. I’d completely forgotten about her. What a babe! Thanks for the memories, PR.

    • A pleasure. Tuesday’s got a very interesting bio and history too — crazy/pushy mama, interests in the occult, devotion to edgy-crazy stuff … Lots of talent, and lots of ambivalence about using that talent, it seems.

        If you google “Tuesday Weld occult” you get some…ah, interesting results. Tuesday Weld as an Illuminati Druid priestess descended from Britain’s Royal Family? Holy crap, someone ought to make THAT movie…
