Here is a list I’ve been keeping of euphonious words whose definitions I keep having to look up, and the articles where I have recently come across them: acuity; anodyne; apotheosis; elegiac; inchoate; internecine; phenomenology; prosaic; temerity (this one wasn’t from an article, Matt just asked me what it meant)
Some other things I’ve enjoyed consuming lately: Larissa Pham’s Pop Song, a book of essays about art and intimacy; Kolsvart Sweet Licorice + Ginger; the first five episodes of The White Lotus on HBO (thanks to my friend Jenny for recommending); this article about Spotify, Peloton, vibes, and labor under neoliberal conditions; season 2 of Blowback, about Cuba; midsummer tomatoes
I hope you are doing well in the midst of all this. Thanks for reading. I hope solving the puzzle this week — whatever that means for you — is as fun and easy as that one. Until next time.
