As far as the disconcerting postmodern trend known as the #selfie is concerned, the experts have yet to come to any kind of consensus. Loosely defined as “a self-portrait taken on a mobile device and posted to social media, often featuring duckface,” the #selfie is in the eyes of some an indefensible expression of vanity. Others think it can be a healthy, even empowering expression of young female subjectivity (I will discuss this further next week), while yet others are willing to evaluate #selfies on a case-by-case basis. But if there’s one basic tenet I think we all can agree on, it’s that there’s a time and a place for #selfies, and a dead person’s funeral is not it. More
Get your tissues ready, folks. More

I’ve never classified myself as “strong.” I am afraid of the dark. I am afraid of the sun. I am afraid of unfamiliar people, surroundings and situations. I am the first person to say, “Guys, I don’t think this is a good idea” and the last person to jump the fence. But for some reason, I’m strangely calm in situations where I think I might die.
I have been faced with the very real possibility of death only twice, and I have learned that while I cry when I fall down the stairs, I do not get upset when I am hit by cars or punched in the face or when the plane seems like it might go down. More
Fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer passed away today in Palm Beach at the age of 81, and her passing has made the world is a little less bright, and also less covered in tiny tropical flowers. More
I was very sad when Roger Ebert died yesterday. We’re generally sad when someone notable dies, perhaps because they remind us of the passing of time, and the way good things do not last forever. However, Roger Ebert’s death seemed particularly affecting, because, gosh, I’ve almost come to think of him as a friend. Perhaps because he is the only person I trust regarding movie reviews (who the hell do I go to now? Rex Reed?). But, also, because in his last years his essays have taken on a deeply personal tone – like this one, “I do not fear death.”: More
Remember the other day when we discussed how ridiculous it would be to everyone if the obituaries of famous male figures in history had been remotely similar to the New York Times‘ eulogy for Yvonne Brill, wife and mother and cook…and “also brilliant rocket scientist.” It felt absurd to declare arbitrary, indistinctive qualities as superseding, say, writing Crime and Punishment or being an angry, talented alcoholic, right?
