Saturday Link Love: Iron Lungs, Expensive Paintings, and the Cheesecake Factory

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

The Last of the Iron Lungs, on Gizmodo—“Martha Lillard spends half of every day with her body encapsulated in a half-century old machine that forces her to breathe.”

Why A $450 Million Painting Attributed To Leonardo Da Vinci Worries Art Historians, on HuffPost—“The artwork has been hotly debated for years, but its sale signals one thing absolutely: a ‘very unequal, even obscene distribution of wealth in the world.'”

Let’s now consider the “postmodern design hellscape” of The Cheesecake Factory, on AV Club—“The interior is given plenty of attention, too. Described as ‘a world of aesthetic chaos,’ Krieger details a garish, nonsensical laboratory of international design where what emerges is a frightening chimera with the head of pseudo-Egyptian ‘Orientalism run amok’ and the feet of, for some godforsaken reason, ‘French limestone floors.'”

Don’t believe Roy Moore’s accusers? Then listen to Moore, on AL.com—“When Roy Moore first took notice of Kayla she would have been as young as 15.”
