1. This story/video of a 96-year-old woman who became a death metal musician is incredible.
2. This isn’t normally the type of article I gravitate towards, but I found this piece on the startups that are “disrupting” traditional orthodontics fascinating.
3. I loved reading this love letter to iceberg lettuce, even if I don’t fully agree with it.
4. This is a few months old at this point, but this long-form illustration of the difference between being broke and being poor came on my radar this week, and I’m so glad it did.
5. There’s a new Netflix show coming out that is said to be “The Simpsons meets Game of Thrones,” if that sounds like something you’d be into.
6. This article featuring several different perspectives on undergoing gay conversion therapy was very tough to read, but important.
7. Was super glad to read about Princeton University renaming an archway after a fugitive slave who once worked on the campus (rather than yet another rich donor).
8. This opinion piece on the only acceptable bagel flavors is bold, and it started a heated debate in my house, so I definitely encourage others to read.
9. “The rise of the microhotel is well-documented. Conde Nast Traveler has a particularly excellent primer on how Ian Schrager, hotelier and Studio 54 founder, ushered in the boutique hotel movement in the ’80s and ’90s like a clamshell ferrying Botticelli’s Venus out of the waves. These hotels were generally smaller, location-specific and more ‘conceptually oriented’ than the average middle-market accommodations.” This article on The Outline was super interesting.
10. ICYMI: I loved Annie’s rules for surviving an overpriced city!
