News 28.06.22 : Today’s Articles of Interest from Around the Internets

When I was 21, the cool thing to be was famous on Instagram. Now the cooler thing to be is a mystery. Anonymity is in. The youngest adult generation and the most online generation is frustrated with being surveilled and embarrassed by attention-seeking behaviors. This has instigated a retreat into smaller internet spaces and secret-sharing apps, as well as a mini-renaissance for Tumblr, where users rarely use their full names.

At Home With: Nancy Meyers, Los Angeles

BY PURE COINCIDENCE, I recently watched both It’s Complicated, the 2009 film with Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, and Alec Baldwin; and Father of the Bride, the 1991 film with Steve Martin and Diane Keaton. Now everyone knows that when you watch Nancy Meyers films, the interiors nearly steal every scene (remember the charming cottage in The Holiday?), so when I came across the writer-director-producer’s redecorated Los Angeles home, of course I had to have a peek, especially since she worked with LA-based interior designer Mark D.

OUR COUNTRYSIDE village has these charming events and one of them, which happens every year, is a Midsummer’s Evening and this year, it was held last Thursday, one day after the Summer Solstice. There were food trucks and folk dancers and face-painting. All the shops were opened late and there was live music (a cover band act).

Everyone is “dissociating.” Over the past few years, it’s become an open-source cultural term, ripe for applying (or misapplying) to all kinds of circumstances where people feel the need to turn off and tune out. One woman I know is currently dissociating via a series of increasingly eccentric hobbies—bead necklaces, candle making, metal-detecting. She’s hardly alone.

Places: Luca Restaurant, Clerkenwell, London

A FEW WEEKS ago, a past contributor at TIG asked for restuarant recommendations in London for her upcoming trip, and I had forgortten to mention Luca in Clerkenwell. Its tagline is “British seasonal ingredients through an Italian lens” and it is known for using high-quality ingredients from around the British Isles and Italy, including seasonal produce such as shrimps from Morecambe Bay, grouse from Yorkshire, langoustines from Scotland and cheeses from across the country …

When influencers first emerged, they were met with some skepticism from advertisers. Compared to conventional celebrities, bloggers and vloggers were often positioned as risky and unpredictable, operating in a messy and frequently scandalous online Wild West.

Documentary: The Great Hack & (More) Thoughts on Social Media

Nearly two months ago, on April 26,2022, it was announced that Elon Musk was buying Twitter. Upon hearing the news, we immediately deleted the Belgrave Crescent Twitter account.
