It’s a sad day for journalism.
I highly recommend watching the documentary on The New York Times, Page One. Not just entertaining, it’s an important beacon of light on what we take for granted when it comes to good journalism.

Music Jail, Pt 1&2

Where you going buddy? Where you going buddy?
Where you going buddy?
Won’t you come with me to music jail?

Where you going darlin’? Where you going darlin’?
Where you going darlin’?
Won’t you come with me to music jail?
Let’s form a band! Let’s take a stand!

Where you going fellah? Where you going fellah?
Where you going fellah?
Won’t you come with me to music jail?
Please say you’ll stay! Don’t turn away!?

I was not prepared to do time to do time
Franky I was scared about time about time
I was in a cloud. Everything so loud?
Life’s a riot. No one’s quiet at all?

Looking forward to this career retrospective of Tomi Ungerer at the Drawing Center, Jan 16 – Mar 22.

 

On my netflix to-do list is watching this movie:

Far Out Isn’t Far Enough.

 

Need an intro to Ungerer? Try this interview with Teri Gross.

This quote by Maurice Sendak on Tomi Ungerer captures why:

“I’m proud of the fact that we helped change the scene in America so that children were dealt with like the intelligent little animals we know they are.”

 

And, this. Kitty-Shaped Kindergarten, which he references in his interview, was designed by Ungerer with architect Ayla Suzan Yöndel. A building where kids walk into the kitty’s mouth and there is a slide in the back for the tail.

And, speaking of the School of Life made me think of this interview with its founder Alain de Botton on Krista Tippett’s On Being podcast:

Listen to it here.

 

Which is also making me want to re-watch this documentary that I originally saw on Bill Moyer’s Journal:

Beyond Our Differences.

From the brilliant Kelli Anderson (and her grandmother), this fudge is the best fudge I have ever had. And if you’re a cook of any sort, you should give this app a twirl, it lets you watch and share your own video recipes.

Get the video recipe here.
