I'm Jean Hannah Edelstein, a writer, editor and author. This used to be my personal blog, but now I just use it for amusing and interesting internet ephemera. Head to www.jeanhannahedelstein.com for the full-strength version of what I'm thinking and writing.
Among the best things about my job is the opportunity to discover new music all the time. For the last couple of months I’ve been collecting the songs that I love into sets - in part to give me playlists to listen to at work, in part to serve as a record of what tunes I’ve been going nuts to in a given month.
It’s worth noting that I’m a bit of a weirdo: when I find a song I like, I probably have to listen to it forty consecutive times. I know! Whatever. That’s just how I listen to music. And this is what I listened to in May.
“Delpy wrote her first screenplay at 16, which a French publisher offered to turn into a novel. “It never happened, but that gave me confidence in my writing,” she said. “Then I shot a film with Sam Shepard” — “Voyager,” in 1991 — “and I read him a line from the script — one line! — and he said: ‘You’re a pretty girl. Just stay that.’ ” Delpy laughs. “So then I recoiled, and I stopped writing.” (Shepard could not be reached for comment.)”
This photo, taken from about 200 miles above Earth, shows the divide between East and West Berlin due to the difference in streetlighting. East Berlin has more sodium-vapor lamps with a yellow color, Western Berlin has more fluorescent lamps.
Glad to have you back on earth, Col. Chris Hadfield, but we’ll miss your awesome photos like this one.
Katrin and I went to see Beyonce last night, and the show was amazing in many respects, but somehow I was most amazed by the gentle, flattering wind blowing in her face at all times, as seen here. I want one.
