Friday Five: The Week in Culture, Feb 2, 2018

Hey there!   Ok, so 6 more weeks of winter, huh?  

I don’t “like where this is going.”^^^

But, here my top five faves of the week: 

1.   Kanye West does weird but “successful” marketing campaign for Yeezy Season 6 one week before NY Fashion Week. “It has the one element that has always been lacking in Mr. West’s myriad attempts to transform himself into a credible style guru: humor.”- Vanessa Friedman, NY Times, Feb 1. 2018

2.   On the anniversary of the publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses, these one star reviews of it are hilarious.

3.   Gotta Girl Crush (a blog and print magazine that recognizes women doing awesome stuff) is using their Instagram to feature badass Black women this month.  Follow them here.

4.   The Grammy’s were mostly dumb... AGAIN.  This essay and this podcast explain why.

Coupla thoughts from me;

- Bruno Mars... meh.

- Like, no women nominated.

-  U2?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Enough already.

5.   Reformation just got a lotta new stuff that’s good.  Get it, mom!

Fun, right?  Just 6 minuscule weeks till you can flounce around in something like this!! 

JK.  JK. 

Winter never ends for us Midwestern moms. 

GOOOOD LUUUUUCK!!!!!!!!!!

And stay warm.
