Weekly Culture Report:  Stuff to Savor, 5 Links to the Coolest in Culture

Weekly Culture Report: Stuff to Savor, 5 Links to the Coolest in Culture

Hello!  It's December already!  Can you believe it?  This month tends to fly by.  I'm trying not to feel rushed and just ENJOY the Chipmunk's song on repeat (Thanks for being so obliging to my 4-year old, Alexa!).  

In the spirit of savoring the moment, here are 5 things I'm into RIGHT NOW:

1.  The 10 best books of 2017, according to the NYTimes.  I just started this one and am loving it so far.

3. 11 Beauty junkies share what they want for Christmas.  

4.  Chicago-native Nina Chanel Abney's brilliant paintings are currently on view at Jack Shainman Gallery in NYC thru December 20th.

5.  The best music videos of 2017, according to Pitchfork.  I wrote about three of them this year: 1. New York by St. Vincent 2.  Want You Back by Haim 3. The Gate by Bjork.  Dancer Mette Towley is amazing in this one by "Single Ladies" choreographer JaQuel Knight.

I hadn't seen or heard this one. It's hilarious and real catchy.  

A celebration of men is a bit of a hard sell in 2017, but Charli XCX and her team of female collaborators pull it off by inverting the male gaze and challenging notions of masculinity.

Hell yes for the Female Gaze!!

Have a wonderful week, mom!!
