scintillating excerpts on a rainy day
The first magazine I subscribed to with my own money.
"The history of modern art really looks different when viewed from the West Coast. New York art was conceptual, and Los Angeles was about perception. Everything had to be honed to a very high level of craft so that it wasn’t disruptive perceptually."
Andrew Perchuk, deputy director of the Getty Research Institute ll Vanity Fair, October 2011.

"I love being home with my kids. I love simple things and wonder why I can’t just enjoy them and live that kind of life. But I wouldn’t be happy. I wouldn’t feel my life is of much worth."
Angelina Jolie ll Vanity Fair, October 2011
I wonder, too.
and the feature The Year in 18 Objects was proving real interesting,

Happy wayearlybeforeeventhanksgiving New Year’s!
(I tend to get ahead of myself.)
I was reading the new Vanity Fair per usual
Vanity Fair ll April 2012
Somewhere along the way, New York became all about money. Or rather, it was always about money, but it wasn’t all about money, if you know what I mean. New York’s not Geneva or Zurich yet, but we’re certainly heading in that direction. London is, too. With every passing year, London is a city that becomes less English and more international - ‘international’ being code these days for business and finance.
- Graydon Carter (Editor’s Letter, VF April 2012)
