READING THIS WEEK..
It should surprise none of you that I had a therapy appointment recently about this exact same topic. There's probably a blog post coming.
If like me, you've been aggravated by the praise lavished on the producers of La La Land for their 'heroic' handling of the Oscars screwup, this will help.
The framing of this is irritating, but I appreciate GQ's attempt to rally male support for Planned Parenthood.
You can have my undying love for Oprah when you pry it from my COLD, DEAD HANDS.
WATCHING AND LISTENING...
On a random weekday in late February, RuPaul's Drag Race disappeared from Hulu. I thought it was a glitch in my Roku, turns out it's because the show is moving to VH1. Ugh. Can I stream VH1?
Do you guys know Katie Couric has a podcast? It's pretty good. In general, I'm loving Pod Save America and Put Your Hands Together. I've been listening to PYHT while I walk the greenway. The people behind me probably think I'm nuts because I'm walking alone, laughing and snorting. The February 16 episode with Maggie Maye - fire. Legit lulz. She's one of my favorite comedians.
Seances. Yes, seances.
