Excerpts From the February 2015 Vogue, Presented Without Commentary

by Anna Fitzpatrick Condé Nast’s arrival downtown is, I am sure, going to precipitate more changes to the neighborhood, creating one of those moments when you feel the center of gravity shift. It will be fascinating to see how the landscape is transformed (I hope one result will be an outpost of Starbucks a little closer to the office!).

I incessantly play RainyCafé while I’m working but also need the Rain, Rain app to fall asleep. My favorite setting isRead More


Stop Brushing Your Teeth: An Interview With Frances McKee of The Vaselines

by Katherine Coplen The fact that Frances McKee and Eugene Kelly are making music together again is a bit unbelievable. After all, the pair, who formed the Glasgow-based band The Vaselines in the late 1980s, went their separate ways right before what would have been their big break: Nirvana covering “Son of A Gun” and “Molly’s Lips” on Incesticide, and performing “Jesus Doesn’t Want Me For A Sunbeam” on MTV Unplugged a year later. Being Kurt Cobain’s favorite band during the years Nirvana was everyone else’s favorite band should haveRead More
