READING

Ann Friedman’s piece in the Gentlewoman about Swedish pop star Robyn, full of reminders that there are many different kinds of fame in this world. What it is like to tell a ten year old that she has HIV.

WATCHING

The movie “The End of the Tour” about artistry and fame and why we pay so much attention to both. Also, the movie “Spotlight” about the unveiling of the dark side of the Catholic Church and the dangers of allowing a religion to form a cult across the entire country. Jemima Kirke answering questions and drawing with sharpies. The short film ‘After the Rain’, to be watched in bed near a sunny window with half a smile on your face.

SMILING

All of John Mulaney’s stand-up. His new comedy special is on Netflix and it is very special and you should watch it if you miss laughing with your friends.
