1) Letterpress stationery. It used to be special - now it seems like it is absolutely everywhere.
2) W Magazine's endless fascination with the Jolie-Pitt-Aniston fiasco.
3) Novels about writers writing novels. Like The Good Husband or A Family Daughter. Writing made up of too many fragmentary details, too many detailed details. Whenever I read a paragraph about an imaginary novelist meeting their imaginary publicist for lunch,or the struggle said imaginary author is having while coming up with a new book idea...
4) Holocaust movies. The best, and last, movie you should ever see about the Holocaust is a Dutch film called "Black Book." The director captured the moral complexity and ambivalence of ordinary citizens. This is the movie Tom Cruise ripped off for Valkyrie. He tried to make up for it by giving the same actors parts in his film, but it doesn't make Valkyrie the better movie.
5) The environment of manufactured perfection on some craft blogs. It's all rough and tumble here at Two Kitties. Sweatpants and spray paint and we're cranky until noon.
What are you tired of?
