  1. MAD PROPS to Lauren Graham. She's an ok singer - but holy shit, she's goes up against RENEE ELISE GOLDSBERRY and holds her own. GIRL has charisma & confidence! [I go back and forth in the original Hamilton which vocal performance I like the best - it usually comes down to Renee or Lamar Odom.....]
  2. OK, I finally finished Kimmy Schmidt (except the new interactive "movie"). I am only 2 episodes in to the Crown S3. Non-streaming, I'm finishing up the first season of Zooey's Extraordinary Playlist and I really love it. A good balance of drama & comedy for me, with lots of good singing. Husband told me last night I am recording WAY too much tv. Add in streaming and yeah, it's a mess ;-) But I've always been a tv addict - fortunately, I can have the tv on while I work - most projects - it doesn't really distract me. Please, if you care for me at all, do NOT give me any new recommendations!!!

    Movie Releases in a COVID world

    I would love to see 2 kinds of movie theaters post-pandemic: the luxury, and the very very basic. I want the luxury with reserved seats, food, bar svc etc. And I want a return to the cheap theater - where you can get $1 or $2 matinees or afternoon shows, so low income kids who might not have streaming tech at home, or even a/c! could go and see something new-ish. I'm not holding my breath - that's not a great business model these days - but I worry a lot about people without $ access.....

    Serena Williams

    I could have gone a lot of ways to post this but we don't have a Serena Williams thread and I adore her, so I'm starting one and putting this here. Yesterday the new women's soccer team for LA was announced - owned by a consortium of women. Including 2 yr old Olympia Ohanian! Youngest major league sports team owner ;-)

    Movie Releases in a COVID world

    Lainey posted similar things today (well, that article was probably written by the film reviewer, Sarah) and she's been saying it for a while. Academy "temporarily" changed its eligibility rules this year so movies released streaming are eligible for Oscars..... I'll find the article & link because she has some good points about what kinds of movies will probably always want a cinematic release vs PVOD etc. I haven't been to a theater in over 10 years - and maybe only a couple of times the 5 years before that. The fact we have somewhat better internet at home now (rural living ;-) and I actually CAN stream now makes me happy - in the old days, I bought the dvd at Costco or on Amazon or just waited for it to come to cable....We've done a couple movies on DirecTV - not sure why we haven't watched more that way, but there you are.... https://www.laineygossip.com/bill-and-ted-face-the-music-will-open-september-first-theaters-and-pvod/66705

    What are you reading?

    And that Byron Lane book looks interesting!!

    What are you reading?

    Yes, Cleo McDougal is a freebie for Amazon Prime this month - I downloaded it! It's currently 3rd in line after 2 library books ;-) Right now I'm halfway through the new Iris Johansen The Persuasion, then I have checked out Hilary Mantel's Mirror and the Light for the 2nd time. Hope to finish it this time. I checked it out for my kindle - I think it's 750 pages? I like it, but it takes me a lot longer to read than other books.....

    The Kardashians

    Curious, after reading the E!Online article just posted in the Blind Item forum - what does their pre-nup look like? They were married in 2014 so they definitely aren't at the 10 yr California community property baseline. 4 kids would definitely keep him on the hook for a lot of child support, not sure about spousal support as she has been "working" since they married. One might argue their marriage made her more marketable$$$ Just nosy :-)

    Martha Stewart

    Damn I love Martha, I want to be Martha, and I sure as heck wish I could age like her! She's going to be 79 soon!!! https://www.instagram.com/p/CC605OzJ8jk/?utm_source=ig_embed

    I trust Meghan's accountant far more than I trust Fakey ;-) Sometimes lawyers and accountants make recommendation that make legal and/or financial sense but your "average" person wouldn't think of. That's why we pay them!!!!

    Would you trust someone who has never had to worry about money to take care of your finances now that you have to actually make some sort of a living (yes, I know they could live easily on what they have now - but not in that Beverly Hills fortress they picked.....)? Given that family - and the knives that are ALWAYS out for her - I'd have my own fucking $ accounts too!

    Pretty sure they've removed a petticoat or two as well - daytime event vs evening ;-) Nice Tatler article (photos!) of wedding tiaras https://www.tatler.com/gallery/royal-wedding-tiaras-in-history#:~:text=Zara chose a tiara originally,Cartier in the early 1900s. I quite like Zara's Meander tiara, but think the bandeau Meghan borrowed is my fave. I know many prefer the bandeau Eugenie wore, and it's stunning, but I think it's my #3 ;-)

    Thinking to the 4 dress/tiaras I remember now - Kate, Meghan, Eugenie, Beatrice - I like all the dresses (a couple fitting points here or there) and the tiaras! C'mon royal weddings - it's all good to me! But now I need to look up the others - Zara, Autumn. Guess that's it for this gen so far because the Wessex kids are still young?!

    The embroidery on the dress really is stunning. Not hugely crazy about puff sleeves but that's just my personal style. I never would've thought that tall fringe tiara would look right but it's all lovely to me. And ee cummings poem! https://twitter.com/MajestyMagazine/status/1284821365565128704?s=19

    Oh, I remember the costar thing now!! Thank you. So, Jessica pregnant or surrogate or adoption?? Guess I could read the article 😉

    Who cheating now??? I hadn't heard (but have never sought out JT gossip, so)

    Love that they released photos on Saturday - saying they didn't want to take attention away from the Knighting ceremony for Sir Tom Moore. Also smart to release photos with Queen and Philip and NOT her parents 😉

    MOre on dress. Oops dress was QE, crown QM (but still worn at QE wedding) https://www.townandcountrymag.com/society/tradition/a31085338/princess-beatrice-wedding-dress/

    I tried to post tweets from Royal Family but can't from my phone....

    She wore QM's dress and crown/tiara that QE wore on her wedding day. I'd say that loan trumps all other loans for her generation!! https://www.townandcountrymag.com/society/tradition/a33356019/princess-beatrices-royal-wedding-secret-garden-theme/

    Coronavirus

    I'm not a nurse (I do research at an Institute that is in between a School of Medicine/Health System and a University so we have both) but I get all the emails that the hospital leadership sends out to its staff a few times a week. LOTS of "encouragement" to follow rules at work but also be a "good citizen" and a good representative of the hospital/university by wearing masks etc in public the rest of the time (I mean, our state has a mask rule now, but still....) The fact that the emails have to say this every time is sad. Also, half of the cases of COVID19 among healthcare workers come from co-workers (almost none from patient care, the rest from community spread)

    There's definitely an ex-fiance and a small child!!

    British Royals

    I'm sure she & her parents are disappointed (possibly her parents more than her?) but that seems like the best decision right now. [Now I need to know HOW MANY residences are at Windsor, and how many have their own chapels????]

    Coronavirus

    I have to get my car inspected. I'm already overdue (June 30) but we have a grace period. Going to wait outside even though it's summer I'm NC..... Have to do some banking too. Fortunately I've given up on a pedicure or haircuts 😁
