We spoke with Hunter Harris, who writes Hung Up, a newsletter of essays, interviews, recommendations, reviews, gossip, line readings, love notes, and “cool shit” about the songs, movies, memes, and cultural takes she’s hung up on. She offers a sampling of some of her favorite reads on Substack.
I love Hunter Harris! Just reading her has made me cooler than I ever thought possible!
Thanks for the insights- I enjoyed it. I will definitely check out some of the suggestions. It's always fun to see other people's reading rooms or spaces for creativity. I have a place by the window as well. P.S.- I agree 100% about the JLO newsletter- I thought it was just my low tech skills!
Love what you say about how you email vs write! Can you tell me why gossip is something you value? I have thought about it a bit and I can see the value of person to person communication of relevant news, much like plants convey information about the environment in fascinating ways...but gossip itself I find pointless and often hurtful...and I distinguish gossip from revelations of corruption that warrant serious concern and ARE interesting...in spite of what some reporters have said about the Biden laptop and his family's dealings with China and Burisma, which is connected to the same guy who funds both Asav's Battallion and Zelensky...not that I'm pro putin, I think he's a dick.tater....well, there's some criticism about gossip and criticism in general, lol. Love to hear your thoughts, I really want to understand why others value gossip.
Please post your comments and share them.
A world where not everyone gets to eat healthy food, drink clean water or has the opprotunity to become educated is radically ugly...
Hunter has strange priorities. Westerner Syndrome. She tries to 'consume a lot of everything'?
To quote Madeleine Albright, "you betcha." This is part in parcel why the international community is waiting for God or China to damn America.
We're all just like Hunter, now. She's just honest about it.
Unfortunately, when I see the name “Hunter” I am instantly on alert. Please forgive, I’m working on it.
