big sur. we stayed in the same place as jake gyllenhaal and taylor swift, and paddled around the cliffside infinity pool in a fog storm, by ourselves, twice, and felt sorry for the girls whose boyfriends or husbands failed to make dinner reservations in time to see the sun set. the guy who drove us the 30 seconds from our place to reception said “come back three times a year. give me job security.” i was starry-eyed.
FGT: these artists are very dedicated. i really think this is all about survival and life-time dedication to finding some answers in a very narrow niche.

New Yorkers, remember to join us tomorrow at 7 PM at BookCourt to discuss Mary MacLane: her celebration, her abuse, and what it means even now to be a woman writing openly about herself. The night will be hosted by Emily Gould. Also: wine.
come hear us talk about what it means even now to be a woman writing openly about herself. (i just met marc’s mom for the first time and told her that maybe she wouldn’t want to read my tumblr. at least not in front of me.)
mary maclane is more amazing than i thought she could be. she is obsessed with steak and lingerie and kissing the pages of her own autobiographical work.
“…but there are ways and ways of doing things.” A+.
Chris Kraus approves of your tumblr.
thank you for the “I’m looking at you Kara” tag :)
in the 10 days between valentine’s day and this weekend’s trip i have gotten two manicures, one pedicure, one keratin treatment, a haircut, a bikini wax, and a lash tint. i also bought a four-piece lingerie set that i described to two friends as “tawny kitaen in a whitesnake video,” but not (yet) a new bikini.
