  • I’m a sucker for a story about over the top debutante culture. (Daily Mail)
  • That time Jayne Mansfield laid down a track with Jimi Hendrix.
  • For those mystified yet oddly drawn to Olympic curling: this. (Laughing Squid)
  • Huh. (The Frisky)
  • I am so happy to hear that HBO is renewing its dark comedy Getting On, which has a fraction of the viewership it deserves.

  1. That Frisky article had me scratching my head too.

    Getting On is wonderful and a little wicked. The writing and performances of the three leads are perfect. So happy it’s coming back for season 2!

    Having moved to the south from New York fairly recently(If Virginia counts…)I’m fascinated and mystified by the debutante and southern tradition business.
    I love this Mexican/colonial theme..
    Much more fun then a Lilly dress and a gin and tonic to wash it down…
    Thanks for that!

    I didn’t find anything on Laughing Squid related to curling? Wondering if the link is off…
