best snippet from the frances mcdormand interview in the ny times magazine:

Even with as few people on set as possible and without all the accouterments of a cover shoot, McDormand seemed to be gritting her teeth. She shifted under the lights in her tank top and bare feet like a child. Someone turned on the music she’d requested (“Smooth,” by Santana), and she swayed a little, uncertainly.

from chef and ny times food writer melissa clark’s “how i get it done”:

On the importance of working out:
I exercise a lot and stretch every single day because I have so many injuries. I have two ruptured discs in my back from years of sitting. I’m always recovering from something but no matter what, I run at least twice a week. Oh, and I’m doing my 100 push-ups program! Do you know about that? You have to go to 100pushups.com. Right now I can do five.

house for a couple

“the experience of making simple changes in the house, and tuning it to their lives, provides some grist for their own growth. therefore, it is best to start small, with plenty of room for growth and change.”
a pattern language, pg. 387, “house for a couple”

POWER

morgan parker discussing the bill cosby trial with her cab driver in “Are We Not Entertained?” — resonant (again) in light of the harvey weinstein sexual harassment allegations:

“I just don’t understand. You [Bill Cosby] got all that money. You got women who want to sleep with you! Why do you resort to that?”

“I don’t think it’s really about that.” I tuck away his use of the word resort to contend with at a much later date. There are too many levels of complexity to process at once.

“You think it’s like … a sickness?”

“Power.”

tom petty guest starring on it’s garry shandling’s show

oh, feel sad about tom petty. always think about his fresh air interview and how real and honest he was about his depression. also traveling wilburys — who even makes this kind of sweet oldie supergroup anymore? (maybe country musicians?) plus guest appearances on it’s garry shandling’s show (and this!).
