citeva lucruri simpa de citit care sa va faca ziua mai frumoasa:

susan orlean despre cum s-a schimbat ritualul lansarii unei carti ( In new Yorker)

Back in the olden days, when people still churned their own butter and the process of writing and publishing a book was simple, the process went something like this:

1. Think of a book topic.
2. Find a publisher who likes the idea.
3. Write the book.
4. Decide what to wear to the book party.
5. Do a book tour. Because there are so many bookstores around the country, this might take a long time.
But things have changed, and these days writing a book is a far more complicated undertaking. As far as I can tell, the process now is more like this:

1. Think of a book topic.
2. See if the domain name for your title is available. If not, consider changing the topic.
3. Does the book title/topic morph easily into a Twitter hashtag? If not, consider changing the topic.
4. Set up the Facebook page for the book and a fan page for yourself as Joe Blow, Author; send out an e-mail blast to your entire contact list asking people to “like” your fan and book pages.

alina constantinescu despre cum s-a vazut din perspectiva ei sedinta foto pentru coperta de februarie. totul s-a desfasurat in casa ei: Cazino Palace, Casa Vernescu

Ceea ce a facut ca, in cazul de fata, corpul meu sa imi transmita emotii noi. Le-am simtit puternice mai ales la inceputul sedintei foto, cand am vazut conturate personajele si jocul lor decadent.

Ma opresc la cele feminine pentru ca m-a fermecat simetria impecabila a corpurilor lor, pentru care de altfel au fost alese: aceeasi inaltime, picioare la fel de subtiri, aceleasi curburi ale spatelui, umerii la fel de lati, gat lung, sanii in forma de lacrima de aceeasi marime. Aproape ca aveau si acelasi zambet gotic sub machiajul intens care le-a colorat buzele in negru! De fapt, toate aratau ca niste clone ale feminitatii care si-au insusit decadenta si acum se bucurau de ea. Xeroxate dupa acelasi arhetip. Ceea ce facea diferenta erau tunsorile lor si modul in care li se aranjase parul.
