Chanel Fall/Winter 2014-2015 Ready-to-Wear
I wanted the Coco Choco sign: "Bit of bad news for those of you relentlessly combing eBay hoping to score one of those Chanel 'Mademoiselle Privé' doormats (wait, I wasn’t the only one, right?): Chanel looters weren’t allowed to keep those goods."
Parité: Karl Lagerfeld says he likes fashion to be "part of daily life, and not something cut away from life." It looks like his trip to cool, relaxed, and comfortable took a long detour through Cara Delevingne's closet.
Why Netflix would have ruined True Detective
"If HBO released the episodes of True Detective all at once, as Netflix regularly does, this show would get half the attention it currently draws."
All these worlds are yours

Towers of Svaneti
"Svans -- a subgroup of Georgians, who speak their own unwritten Svan language, practice blood revenge and sing complicated polyphonic vocal songs -- were the traditional gatekeepers of mountain passes, and since the time immemorial have been hardy survivors, the archetypal highland warriors. Every household in Svaneti is a true fortress."
Stephen King’s Reading List for Writers
“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”

Carthage: The Roman Holocaust (2004)
"It was a fine spring morning when Armageddon began."
"Carthage was Rome's equal, rival and almost her conqueror. In 146 BC Roman General Scipio destroyed the city of Carthage so painstakingly and utterly that not a single building was left standing. What did the Romans so fear about the Carthaginians that in the end they would be prompted to the most terrible acts of reprisal in the ancient world? A new archaeological dig by Dr. Richard Miles of Cambridge University, penetrates the burned layer of the Roman holocaust and uncovers fresh evidence."
On the surface, this seems like good news
"Is Sony's The Last of Us movie a good idea?"
That’s the problem though. These game work great as games, but stripped of its “game-ness,” The Last of Us may turn into just another post-apocalyptic sci-fi zombie movie.
Encouraging: Sam Raimi is producing the film.
Naughty Dog related: "Earlier this week we had to confirm the regrettable news that Amy Hennig has left Naughty Dog."
"The worst thing that ever happened to the collective Screenwriters of the World was the invention of the cellphone. Seinfeld may still hold up pretty great for you today ('90s fashion is timeless, y'all), but think about that show from the perspective of someone who's 12 or 13 now. Half the "conflicts" in that (or virtually any '90s) sitcom could have been solved via a few hundred bucks worth of iPhone."
