ONE WAY…(GIRLS 2012)

Hannah: I don’t even want a boyfriend.

Adam: What do you want?

Hannah: I just want someone who wants to hang out all the time and thinks I’m the best person in the world and wants to have sex with only me.”

…OR THE OTHER (MAD MEN 1966)

Pete: Why do they give you a glimmer of hope in the midst of rejection? A thread to hang onto? A misplaced word? A suggestion for the future? Under a court of law, it would look like an accident but it’s not.

Harry: So we’re not talking about Megan and we’re not talking about Trudy.

Pete: Why do they get to decide what’s going to happen?

Harry: They just do.”

The way I keep stuff for this semi-not-at-all-regular column is by starring it in my Google Reader. As the weeks/months go on, things tend to pile up. Related things. Here they are, by particularly similar category.

APPLE
T-SHIRTS, then, and now:

Other stuff and your new/old iPhone.

A DAB OF HISTORY
Autograph books! They had them in Little House on the Prairie, except when they were in Town.

TENNIS

COOL POLITICIANS
Dean forever, obviously.

OLD MUSICIANS
Like Woody Guthrie, or Patti Smith and jam sessions.

OTHER COOLISH, MOSTLY CRANKY OLD MEN
Like Anthony Bourdain, or David Letterman

FAMOUS, LEGIT ACTORS
The truth behind Natalie Wood, Denzel Washington might play Thelonious Monk, Ben Affleck’s kids wear his face on their shirts and a GIF wall of many many Oscar winners and losers.

WATER
In art, and in life/art.

ADVERTISING (ESPECIALLY ’50s THROWBACK ADVERTISING)
Whether it’s Playboy, a Mad Men-themed Newsweek, more Helvetica (plus sandwiches) or remembering George Lois. Or a particularly personal plea.

The New York Times and Israel/Palestine, naturally.

PIXAR
People look like those fake oh-so-real characters.

PICTURES OF OLD NEW YORK
Skylines, seagulls wildin’ and such:

FINALLY

It really is.
