An Oral History of The Emperor’s New Groove. This movie is low-key one of my favorite animated movies. It’s so funny! And the process to make it was apparently barely a process at all. It was more “we need to get a movie out in a year: go!”
I offer you two articles about the fashion business. First, fast fashion is eating the world, which is more about how all fashion is becoming fast fashion, NOT about its terrible environmental impact. It contains this great nugget: there is a correlation between social media usage and how much clothing you buy. Second, Where does discarded clothing go?, which does address some of the environmental impact. I’m not sure I agree with “for-profit clothing recycling is bad”, but whatever, I’m here for more clothing recycling (once we start buying fewer clothes).
Living in New York’s Unloved Neighborhood. I love this article for so many reasons: it’s about living in a city, a thing I miss; it’s about finding what’s good in a not-so-great place; it’s about finding community in a place you wouldn’t normally think to look for it. Recommended.
