What did I miss? Add what you're reading to the comments.
A portion of the poster for new documentary Fed Up and an factoid from the film.
The line between legitimate health advocacy and body shaming is a precarious one. So what does it look like when yet another food documentary sets out to “revolutionize” the way Americans think and eat, and also “cure the obesity epidemic”? Well, let’s say that things get messy.
I've been having some lonely times recently and wanted a playlist to listen to while I fall asleep. That's what this mix is for—music to listen to in the dark. It's not a bunch of tearjerker breakup songs, though, who needs that when you're already lonely? Instead, I've been getting into this band Elephant and they have the most hilarious official description for their genre: "Nocturnal Lo-Fi Bedroom Dreamy Beach Pop." YES. Nailed it. That's what I want: An hour-and-a-half of noctural, lo-fi, bedroom, dreamy, beach pop tunes.
So this mix includes Elephant as well as brand-new tracks from Mirah, Bonsai, Woman's Hour, and Lykke Li. Hope you like it.
• I can’t even believe this is happening. Supposedly, a 28-year-old woman is auctioning off her virginity, offering a “12 hour date with the highest bidder ending in her deflowering” and for some reason all Jezebel cares about is why she isn’t being arrested for prostitution. [Jezebel]
