Weekend Miscellany: Vincent’s Picks

What a week. Give these a read and then meet me at your local bar. I’m the guy with bags under his eyes and smelling of bourbon and despair.

  • Patricia Lockwood’s poem Rape Joke was the most affecting thing I read all week. Its casualness only lends to its grotesqueness.
  • Orange is the New Black is the latest Netflix original series, and despite a lack of initial interest in the premise, it’s done a pretty job of sinking it’s claws in to me. Clips like this keep me coming back.  Go watch it.
  • Jay Caspian Kang wrote a piece on the New York Times about everyone’s favorite cute animal/funny video/child pornography internet community and its (unproductive) role during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Have a nice weekend, everyone.
