Tuesday Snoozeday: Link Roundup

In honor of the Tuesday blues, we curate a weekly selection of the most interesting things on the web. Brew some coffee, curl up with your laptop, and get clicking!

WATCH: Grimes released the music video for "Kill v Maim" off her phenomenal new LP Art Angels, and it is bizarre, fantastic, and better than I could have hoped for.

TELEVISION: A profile of Gillian Anderson's work as Special Agent Dana Scully just in time for The X-Files series revival, including her struggle to rectify the pay disparity between herself and David Duchovny on the Daily Beast. Click here to read.

DESSERT: In honor of the Snowpocalypse of 2016, here is the best recipe for snow cream that exists.

STYLE: Men's wardrobe essentials, courtesy of SoM. This capsule wardrobe leans towards the preppier side, so I found an alternative basic wardrobe that leans more streetwear and minimal. For you, or to give some helpful hints to the man in your life!
ART: Educate yourself on the provocative images by German-Australian fashion photographer Helmut Newton, who liked to photograph "elegant, powerful, and sensual women." This is a good primer on his background and work.

POLITICS: It looks like Bernie Sanders is turning up the heat on Hillary after all. Listen to the full story on NPR while indulging in "Bernie's Yearning," the new Ben and Jerry's Bernie-themed ice cream.

MUSIC: Apparently this is happening in 2016, but I'm not holding my breath. I've just been let down too many times.

STYLE: My current lust, filed under my Pinterest category of "things that are pretty and also vaguely threatening."

THE WORLD IS SCARY: Lorin LaFave's son was groomed and murdered by an online predator via a gaming site. A tense but important read. The BBC released a special docu-drama on the horrifying story today. 

THE WORLD IS SCARY, PART 2: If you live in Asheville, you're bound to have heard of the Waking Life scandal in which the owners of a local coffee hangout were exposed as pickup artists. If you aren't from Asheville and this sounds familiar, it's because the story went international. New York Magazine's cover story this week is on one of the owners.

ART: A little obsessed with this neon sign campaign by David Drake that is also promotional material for The 1975's new album.

PHOTOGRAPHY: That's What She Said.

HISTORY: Never hurts to learn more about the ancient world. Did you know about the Toltec Civilization? I didn't.

ESSAY: An interesting piece on Stereogum about the relationship between Top 40 music and indie pop that sounds essentially the same but is perceived differently.

What have you been obsessed with this week? Let us know in the comments!
