Happy Memorial Day Weekend!! Following are a few entertainment suggestions for the long weekend…
I’ve been waiting for that elusive fantastic show (movie/TV) – e.g., Shrinking and The Last of Us – to sweep me off my feet before writing this, alas, it never came. However, plenty of diversions are available in the theater, streaming, and on network TV. If you are looking for some fun, mindless entertainment, go ahead and try Air, Dungeons and Dragons, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Ghosted, The Mother, Citadel, Will Trent and Not Dead Yet. (Side note, do not be afraid to go to the movie theater. The past few times I’ve gone it has been virtually empty – you get the whole movie experience without a lot of distractions.)
Romantic Comedy by Curtis Sittenfeld
I LOVED this book! Sally Milz is a sketch writer for a tv show (that is SNL but is called something different). When pop star Noah Brewster shows up as the host and musical guest, sparks fly. This book is so well written and laugh out loud funny; I am a sucker for a book that makes me laugh.
Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt
This is another quirky one (see Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, etc.) so you may have to give yourself a moment to get into its groove, but it’ll be worth it. A bit of a mystery tied up with lessons in love, friendship and the genius that is the octopus.
EVERYONE is touring! I know it’s easy to talk yourself out of going to shows because it seems like a hassle and the tickets and fees are stupid expensive, but if you can afford it and you have the opportunity – GO!!!!
I recently saw John Mayer even though I didn’t really know his music outside of radio play. He kinda blew me away; no sets, no back up singers – just him, a bunch of guitars and good old fashioned storytelling. I added a few of songs including this one: “Shouldn’t Matter But it Does.”
However you choose to spend your weekend, I hope you have fun and stay safe!
