Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

WE SPENT MOST of the weekend doing art. P took up architectural sketching with markers and pens a few weeks ago, and I’ve been working furiously on a few new pieces/projects over the past few days. We’ll be adding our favourites to The Shop and I’ve just discovered a wonderful printing place in East London that will handle all the prints of our work …

As a humanist who writes about the impact of digital technology on our lives, I am often mistaken for a futurist. The people most interested in hiring me for my opinions about technology are usually less concerned with building tools that help people live better lives in the present than they are in identifying the Next Big Thing through which to dominate them in the future. I don’t usually respond to their inquiries. Why help these guys ruin what’s left of the internet, much less civilisation?

I’ve never wanted to be pregnant, and I’ve been pregnant three times. Each time I learned the news, my commitment to what I’d already known was confirmed viscerally and instantaneously—with the unshakable certainty of no. I say “no” often. I think “no” frequently.

On the bright side, fall clothes are wonderful⏤whether trench coats with wellies; or a chunky knit with white jeans (we are still transitioning after all); tweed blazers and baseball caps; flared blue jeans and boxy coats, here are a few of our favourite ways to dress for these autumn days…

No one did more to make movies the art of youth than Jean-Luc Godard, who was born in 1930, in Paris, and died on Tuesday, at his home in Rolle, Switzerland, by assisted suicide. Godard’s films of the nineteen-sixties, starting with his first feature, “Breathless,” inspired young people to make movies in the same spirit in which others started a band. His works—political thrillers, musical comedies, romantic melodramas, science fiction, often more than one per year—moved at the speed of his thought, transformed familiar genres into intimate confessions, and made film form into a wild laboratory of aesthetic delight and sensory provocation.

Charlotte’s Folly: A Fairytale Cottage in Shropshire Decorated by Emma Ainscough

BITS AND PIECES of this quintessential English countryside cottage have been featured here before (without us realising that they were all from the same place) because Charlotte’s Folly, as this Shropshire cottage is known, ticks all the boxes of the things we love lately: Stripes and Garden Rooms; Blue and Pinkish Brown; and of course, using Curtains Instead of Cupboards …

Two and a half years ago, the Internet Archive made a decision that pissed off a lot of writers—and embroiled it in a lawsuit that many netizens fear could weaken the archive, its finances, and its services long into the future. In March 2020, as bookstores and libraries joined other businesses in closing their doors, the Internet Archive tried a virtual solution.
