Smart Girls Who Do Stupid Things

Sometimes…

TTMMW: Themes

Tags: , , , , , , ,

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.

Stuff About Your Friends

“It may seem hard to believe today, but in ’94 we were playing in core-conceptual territory that hadn’t been explored that much on network TV—young-adult relationships.” – Warren Littlefield

“Then Kauffman and Crane came back with Friends, which we thought was such a snore. Some people thought the show was too Gen X, way too narrow.” – Karey Burke

“Fame doesn’t cure whatever is going on inside of you, however you feel about yourself.” – Lisa Kudrow

“We did not want to go out on the bottom. We wanted to feel more like it was time for your child to go to college, not die.” – Marta Kauffman

Who doesn’t love an oral history of the best sitcom of our time?
