    The Annual Kennedy Center Honors Topic

    technically, yes. but the point here is that the man’s going to be 76 in july, so now is the time to recognize his, and the rest of the stone’s contributions both to music, and the culture at large.

    S08.E02: Episode 2

    unlike ‘this is us’ (after season one) and earlier, ‘parenthood,’ this show is a perfect example of how layered writing earns viewers’ tears. i particularly loved how the suffragette tucked the money in the book she left for the girl who brought her groceries.

    S04.E17: I'm in Love

    yes, that was my one real disappointment, as well. there’s was a lot more to explore between rebecca and her mother. would have loved to see tovah feldshul again.

    S05.E01: Chapter Eighty-Two

    according to tood vanderwerff @ vox we should all buckle our seatbelts: "To say literally anything about the first few episodes of the final season of Jane the Virgin (The CW, Wednesdays at 9 pm Eastern) would be spoiling a pretty big plot twist."

    Midwives and nuns in other roles

    was so excited to come across miranda hart's bbc show on amazon prime. unfortunately, it's that that very broad british humor with an unbearably loud laugh track. couldn't make it past the 2nd episode.

    This Is Us In The Media

    hadn't realized that tim o'brien, who wrote the classic, 'the things they carried,' was writing for the show this season. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/20/magazine/tim-obrien-this-is-us-vietnam.html?action=click&module=Features&pgtype=Homepage

    S03.E15: The Waiting Room

    yup! the bravermans redux. unfortunately, the bravermans got on my last nerve and with one exception, never made me cry. sad to say, after the first season, the same has been largely true for the persons.

    one would think... look for pope francis to issue a papal dispensation from 1pp.

    The Annual Academy Awards Topic

    according to matt zollar seitz at vulture: "With a host eating up anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes of telecast time, would Spike Lee, co-winner for Best Original Screenplay for BlacKkKlansman, have been able to warn the producers, “Do not turn the motherfucking (my italics) clock on,” and then (seemingly) be permitted to give a heartfelt, informal-sounding, very Spike-ish speech putting his own family’s history within the context of four centuries of American discrimination?" https://www.vulture.com/2019/02/2019-oscars-review.html#_ga=2.213911508.2104341480.1551237997-2082165475.1491450891

    exactly! however, eliminating the nonsense that usually bloats the oscars -- presenters' bla bla bla, endless montages, pizza deliveries -- exposes the ridiculous number of commercials.

    The Annual Academy Awards Topic

    my only quibble with the in memorium was the music. john williams music all sounds the same to me and leaves me cold. however, i very much liked that they kept the camera steady so we could actually see the name. so, next year, keep the camera the same, replace the music -- yo yo ma playing bach would work for me -- and i'll be a happy camper.

    rhetorical question: did maya look in the mirror before she left the house? maybe the dress was intended as some kind of spoof; but those earrings! really?!
