I have a box of empty cards at home that I’ve picked up in different cities or boutiques and keep on hand to mail to friends on a whim. Recently I discovered Ashkahn’s assortment of hilarities at downtown staple, American Two Shot. His cards are not your average Hallmark-moment. The messaging is everything from crude to kind and they do more than make me smile. You’ll most likely find something you (or a friend) can relate to and what’s better than receiving a handwritten note out of nowhere?

Lupita Nyong’o walks tall, much taller than her height. Her mother, Dorothy, once said that her family will forever tease her about how she walks: as if she believes she’s six feet tall. (She’s five-five.) The first time I meet her, at a laid-back taverna in Brooklyn, where she lives, I feel that walk. She is cool, straight-backed, circumspect. She doesn’t ooze emotion the way many young Americans do. She orders the green eggs and lamb, and lets the joke speak for itself, not offering a gratuitous laugh. But once we start speaking about her work, she’s all in, as if able to forget the public Lupita for a moment or two, slip inside the details of story and character, and let go.
