Notes from the Weekend & this Week’s Links 03.06.24
via @lepuration

THERE IS A lot going on in media and publishing these days. Do you remember The Coveteur? I just read that they are no more as of June 15, after a splashy rebrand, dropping the “the”, and hiring Jenna Lyons as editor in chief—a role she held for only 96 days. In other news, Substackers are “Online Culture Curators” now, and it’s all emblematic—these rapid changes and rebrands—of the fast-paced, tumultuous nature of the media world today. Last week I found a poem I wrote when I was 18 and actually really liked it. It’s strange to think that I used to write quite a lot of poetry, and draw and paint with watercolours. As I sit here, writing to you on a laptop, I can’t help but feel a sense of nostalgia for those days. The digital world has slowly consumed the time and energy I once devoted to these creative outlets.While the internet has undoubtedly brought many benefits and connections, can’t help but wonder what I’ve lost in the process. But maybe, just maybe, it’s time to step back and rediscover what it feels like to create something real, something that can’t be replaced by a screen.

This week’s links include how to grow an olive tree and Evan Kinori’s minimal, refined-rustic aesthetic furniture designs; off-white mules and thong kitten heels for summer days, and much, much more.
