I promised Rooo I’d report back! The Indianapolis Public Library’s yearly McFadden Lecture was last night, a talk with Ta-Nehisi Coates. Tamara Winfrey Harris was the moderator; she was quoted just this week in a Jezebel article, is the author of The Sisters are Alright, and is the co-creator of the Letters to Black…
I finished reading SDC last night, per my mention in yesterday’s post. And it contains this piece of advice:
So I got both these best-seller books from the library yesterday, and read Marie Kondo’s The Magical Art of Tidying Up in its entirety last night. Will read Margareta Magnusson’s SDC tonight. Have any of you read these?
I’m not mad, but just sad and frustrated, by this:
I’m looking forward to the Season 2 premiere of Westworld, on Sunday night—am re-watching Season 1 beforehand. And it got me thinking, what would my dream park be, and what narratives would I pursue? Would I want to check out Shogun World, Medieval World, Roman World, or Futureworld—or come up with something new? (And…
So I’ve seen a couple of good movies in the last couple of days, wondered whether others have as well.
IT ARRIVED YESTERDAY!!! :D
Hey, everybody — I figure someone here must have good experiences to share, for places to eat in Taos and Santa Fe. I’ve never been to that part of the country, but am going on vacation there soon — do you have any must-eat (or must-see) places in those two specific locations? Thanks in advance!
I am so excited for Sunday night! Who else is looking forward to the start of season 7? I just compiled a list of the major and minor players who are left in the game, as of the end of S6:
I’m in the middle of a book that I have to finish before book group tomorrow night, and it has some passages so astonishing that I feel they’re worthy of sharing. The book is American War, by Omar El Akkad.
Interesting: David Mamet refuses to allow “talkback” sessions where a theater company discusses his work with audience members shortly after a performance.
OK, I’ve only seen episode 1 — started too late last night to fit the second one in — but this show is batshit in the most fun way!
I am a woman, but I am not hot. Please accept my apology, as this means I have no value in your America, and am only a burden.
Are you quarantining yourself from the onslaught of punditry like I am, and taking self-preservation methods to survive tomorrow? If so, what are your havens?
I feel like I may have posted this last year? In any case, they’ve added products since then — check out the Wintercroft Masks shop on Etsy, they have some kickass patterns for cheap. I am going to try to make the Bride of Frankenstein! It’s not easy, I’ve done one before, but it’s fun — and even imperfections are OK…
Halloweeny types, check out the Turner Classic Movies schedule this month — tomorrow night they’re playing Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein, followed by Bride of, then Son of — and on Friday they’re showing the old Max Schreck Nosferatu, followed by The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Plus more, undoubtedly, as the month goes…
Can someone please share this to O-Deck?
In exciting news for those of us who love the theater but can’t always make it to the biggest stages, the first live-stream of a Broadway production is happening on June 30: 8-time Tony nominee She Loves Me, starring Laura Benanti, Jane Krakowski, and more.
Nice to see someone addressing a badly overlooked need in my local community, and the growth of such programs nationally. “Bras are invisible usually, and so are homeless women.” Also stressed: the need for feminine hygiene products.
