You never know where inspiration will hit you. This week it was brought to me in the form of the new Apple Red iphone ad. The song used in the ad caught my attention enough that I had to seek it out, find out who created it, and play it over and over again.
It’s called, “That’s It (Im Crazy) by Sofi Tukker.
From wikipedia: Sofi Tukker is a New York-based musical duo consisting of Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern. The band is perhaps best known for its song “Best Friend,” which was featured in a commercial during Apple’s unveiling of the iPhone X on September 12, 2017.
This is a very niche post. My So-Called Podcast is hosted by Patrick Hinds and Gillian Pensavalle. Learned about Patrick from his other podcast, Broadway Backstory.
I’ll admit I was reluctant to listen to two people talk about a show. However, My So-Called Life is a show i know very well. Own the series on DVD, and watch the Christmas episode every year. It was a seminal show whcih only ran for one season, and still has impact.
The podcast feels like I’m sitting at lunch with my friends talking in detail about the show. And that makes the traffic and car rides more bearable.
So, if you are a big fan of My So-Called Life, give it a shot. If not, perhaps there are podcasts out there releated to your favorite show.
Funny how I was reluctant to watch this show. Perhaps after Smash and Glee, I had felt somewhat letdown. Now Rise promises a more naturalistic approach to theatre, the heart behind teaching, and putting together a show in high school.
Glow is a new Netflix Series about Female Wrestling. It’s hard for me to put my finger on why I enjoy this series. Maybe it’s the 80’s throwback costumes, music, and culture. Maybe it’s the ragtag group of actresses who come together in the story to create this new world of women’s wrestling. Surely, it is the underdog story, the misfits finding their place, with tongues in cheeks.
I find it entertaining and pretty fully realized. I’m surprised at my own reactions, similar to the character’s reactions to the concept of females staging fighting with each other. Check it out. Form your own opinion.
A Killing on the Cape is a six-episode ABC Radio podcast and an ABC News “20/20” documentary. It tells the story of the murder of Christa Worthington, a fashion writer, in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
The story begins with Christa being found stabbed in her house with her 2 year old daughter by her side. It’s the first murder case in 30 years in the area. And the story that unfolds is stranger than fiction.
Totally compelling and unique in that it combines a podcast with a documentary.
The podcast can be found via iTunes, and the documentary can be found below.
Had the fortunate opportunity in my life to live in NYC. While there the New York Times is arguably the only way true new yorkers get their news.
What I’m excited about is The New York Times really is a global leader in news. As much as we have been hearing attacks towards the news media, they really are the pillar of freedom and the First Amendment to the Constitution.
