Lindy West rss

Lindy West was born an unremarkable female baby in Seattle, Washington. She writes about movies, movie stars, exclamation points, lady stuff, large frightening fish, and much, much more. You may have seen her world-famous article “The Different Kinds of People That There Are” or witnessed her single-handedly putting a stop to the Sex and the City movie series (thank god). Lindy’s work has also appeared in GQ, the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, the New York Daily News, Deadspin, and some other places she can't remember right now.
