Weekly digest (4/1/11)

April Fool’s! Didja fall for anything? Be honest!

  • Read it. I had to read it for my book club but Rebecca Traister’s book Big Girls Don’t Cry, about feminism in the 2008 election, was fascinating and so well-written. It’s amazing how even a few years perspective can make you see the media-saturated events in a new light.
  • Saw it. Sunday night I ate Girl Scout Cookies and watched Despicable Me, which was despicably cute. They keep making such high-quality CGI animated films and I’m going to have a tough argument for keeping the traditional animation banner flying.
  • Heard it. The rooomates and I headed to Pickathon this year! That’s right, Oregon’s best indie roots festival. It’s in August, but I’ve been listening to the festival playlist.
