  • Pay your respects to legendary architect Oscar Niemeyer, who died this week at 104, by checking out some of his more notable—and by that I mean supremely trippy—structures. (PFSK)
  • Your LL Bean Boyfriend: a new classic of the single topic Tumblr genre (big thanks for the heads up  to to the peerless Stephen Treffinger). (Your LL Bean Boyfriend)
  • Alcatraz, John Wayne, and more things Joan Didion loves. (Flavorwire)
  • Freaks and Geeks freaks, prepare to to immerse yourselves in bucketloads of nostalgia for one of the best shows ever to last a single season: Vanity Fair’s comedy issue has a rather manic F&G  package, including ten-year “reunion” photos of the entire cast, an oral history, and more more more. (Vanity Fair)
  • Do not delay in bookmarking Threaded, Smithsonian Magazine’s fashion history blog, which chronicles the history of the Bass Weejun, the death of formal wear in cruise ship dining rooms, other things you had no idea were quite fascinating. (Threaded)
