Culture Creature: Gudetama, Ali Wong, West World and more


Here's some things I've been obsessing over/enjoying lately:

  • Have you seen this Gudetama game?! I'm obsessed with it and shake my head at how much time I waste tapping an illustrated egg on my phone screen. You should play it! Leave your ID number in the comments and I'll friend you!
  • I started listening to The Daily Zeitgeist upon a recommendation from a friend. It's a thoughtful and entertaining way to stay up to date on the news.
  • Stilling trying to catch up on West World and avoiding any spoilers!
  • I finished Terah Edun's Blades of Magic and I am already starting the next one in the series. I recommend it if you like strong female protagonists, magic and action.
  • I loled so hard at Ali Wong's latest stand-up special on Netflix, Baby CobraAll you mom's out there will love it, too.
  • And finally, I'm obsessed with this painting (to the left), "Mother and Child" by Xi Pan and wish I could find a way to buy a print from the artist.

Happy Father's Day!

Got a Millennial Dad in your life? Here's a gift guide to help you out with Father's Day this year! Also, just a friendly reminder, NEXT SUNDAY IS FATHER'S DAY. You're welcome.



  1. TRUTH. You're welcome. Lol. (etsy)
  2. This is a nice gift that looks beautiful and can carry a beautiful sentiment. Get the night sky from the night your child was born. (etsy)
  3. Mr. LL does almost all of the cooking in our house, so getting a Home Chef box might be a nice change of pace (and perhaps a little easier on me since I do all the grocery shopping). (Home ChefBONUS: Enjoy 3 Free Meals with Home Chef! Click here!)
  4. How about a new book to read? Maybe Robin by Dave Itzkoff: "From New York Times culture reporter Dave Itzkoff, the definitive biography of Robin Williams – a compelling portrait of one of America’s most beloved and misunderstood entertainers." (Target)
  5. My husband loves him a good loafer, so I know these will always be a hit with him. (DSWBONUS: Up to 50% off Men's Clearance. Click here.)
  6. One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is that Mr. LL leaves his headsets (SETS, YES PLURAL) on my computer desk! Well, now he can use this really cool stand and keep his sh** on his desk. I mean, "Love you! Happy Father's Day!" (etsy)
