The Best Thing You Will Read This Week
I barely made to the second paragraph before Nora Ephron’s Final Act had me in tears. This piece was written by one of her sons and is another beautiful portrayal of one of my dearest heroines. I think one commenter said it best when they remarked on how interesting it was that we missed her so much that we are still willing to read pieces that bring us to tears just so we can be reminded of her brilliance. Highly recommend this read. It is worth every tear.
There are only thirty more days until my favorite show of all time returns. I can barely even handle it guys. Until then I am going to keep re-watching the new promo.
Ever since House of Cards was released on Netflix one month ago, I have been waiting for Andy Greenwald to write his thoughts on it. Finally he came through this week and it was everything I wanted it to be.

Christopher Nolan’s has announced his next project and I have all of the excitement!
This week was a great one for trailer nerds like myself. Here are some of the most noteworthy:
My man Ben Affleck starring in To The Wonder is definitely going to force me to get over my Terrance Malick aversion real quick. Check out the extremely Terrance Malicky trailer here.
Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring starring Emma Watson and Taissa Farminga looks amazing.
I get less and less optimistic about M. Night Shyamalan’s latest project with each new trailer that I see.
I still have a bad taste from Part II, so I can’t really say that the new The Hangover Part III trailer got me all too excited. Which makes me sad, because if Part III is just as bad as Part II, then I might never be able to watch Part I again.
The second I heard Joss Whedon and Shakespeare in the same sentence I knew I was all in. This trailer only reaffirmed my commitment.
This mashup wins all mashups. Call Me a Hole – Carly Rae Jepson vs. Nine Inch Nails.
James Blake can do no wrong. Also, Brian Eno! Eff yes. Digital Lion ft. Brian Eno – James Blake

Murad Osmann and his girlfriend, Nataly Zakharova are world travelers. Using the hashtag #followmeto they have managed to document their adventures in a uniquely brilliant and stunning way. Seriously, these are some of the most beautiful pictures, ever.
Speaking of world traveling, earlier this week I was bit hard by the wanderlust bug. These images along with the amazing typography really aren’t helping.
