I suspect, in some sort of horrifyingly Faustian way, Crosstalk still owns Magister.

The more I think about this comment, the more troubling and funny it is.

I used it in my annual review one year and it was considered a black hole of work appropriate behaviour.

Congratulations on your beautiful baby, BDH. It sounds like you’re handling everything beautifully. You have not only been productive, you’ve been reproductive.

That’s an excellent idea for postpartum entrepreneurship and weight loss—artisanal breast milk sorbet (produced by you), and delivered (also by you, in some kind of booberEats/SoulCycle horror). Read more

Don’t get me wrong, I also really enjoyed the Voices of Long Ago saying they would never flounce and why are all of These People creating drama?! But I guess loss was the enduring feeling. Read more

Hey gurl. Was wondering how you and your parasite are doing the other day and, lo and behold, you appear on this article I decided to read only because the comments are the kind of death match I am here for. Read more

Well, scrolling through these comments in 2017 sure was a sobering experience.

It sounds like she did things with a lot of thought and care, yet managed to keep the surprise and wonder in it for you. The way you describe her, I’m certain she would have delighted in every book review and crayon masterpiece you delivered. I type this as I am dismembering a pteranodon, so I know what I’m talking Read more

I’m so sorry that you’re in this unstable, sodden terrain. The wealth of Anna’s character comes through in the memories you have shared here. She sounds quite remarkable, and like the quietness of her public demeanour served to make even more special the thoughtful, spontaneous, and hilarious things she did with those Read more

I had some sort of pregnancy newsletter thing where, weekly, it told me what the fetus was in the equivalent fruit or vegetable. Shit got obscure. Heirloom tomato obscure. I unsubscribed when I looked ahead and saw that 40 weeks was listed as the size of a pumpkin. Fuck that.

These guys in particular are like chavs in that they’re dressed like a skit from Little Britain.

Ah, lovely Jerri Southern tune. Misplaced mine. When I upgraded computers, I seem to have lost about half of my mp3 collection. And I’ve moved house and not yet unpacked (I never fully unpack), so I don’t know where all my CDs are. It took me so long to track down that Jerri Southern CD that I’m loathe to do it

I wasn’t sure if the term would translate but the whole band has a very “Westie” (drastically lower socioeconomic west of Sydney) vibe that just doesn’t gel with what is happening acoustically. It’ll be very interesting to see what they end up doing. Their first album has a very Oasis vibe.

MAKING LIFE! is the best answer to anyone who asks you about productivity. “Oh, you do crossfit, that’s nice. I’m growing teeth inside my womb as we speak.”

I think she captures that saying about the loneliest you can be is inside a relationship. Counterargument from Kings of Convenience—the saddest you can be is trying not to get into a relationship because you’re worried you’ll get hurt:

Right?! I saw it (rather than hearing it first) and I spent like three minutes with my mouth open, and just staring. He has such a remarkable and clear voice and the way he dresses is...unremarkable and less clear.

Thank you! But my inability to buy a CD player (those don’t exist anymore? just vinyl and micro disks?) has meant I haven’t listened to anything new in like a year. I’ve got nothing, I’m afraid, but I’ll offer you a surprisingly workable country/acoustic cover of Cher’s “Believe”

I’ve always felt like this one captured a kind of sadness usually hidden behind a smile.
