Back then, I couldn’t wait for summer to come, because it meant leaving school, catching fireflies with friends, and tons of popsicles.
Now, as an adult, that means high gas prices, uncomfortable temperatures and – if I’m lucky – cocktails with friends on the patio while mosquitoes feed on us.
do you know? I think I’ll stay in there and stream some joy.
Stranger Things season four
I’m not a fan of sci-fi, but Stranger Things is so much more than that.
Season 4 was split into two distinct parts, and it’s getting bigger — and I don’t mean just about the child actors growing up. No spoilers here, but I will say we know more about Character Eleven, the perfect role played by Millie Bobby Brown.
The first part of the new season of Stranger Things is streaming on Netflix.
“Look at me: XXXTentacion”
But his music and the fascination with him and his life remain.
The documentary is streaming on Hulu.
‘Ricky Gervais: Supernatural’
Ricky Gervais is disrespectful.
Why is it making this week’s list of things to watch? Because I’m a firm believer that we shouldn’t bury our heads in the sand when it comes to controversial content.
Too often, we complain in a subtle way about things we don’t even know, understand, or have context for.
“Ricky Gervais: SuperNature” is streaming on Netflix if you want to know what’s causing the uproar.

Speaking of problematic music artist Liam Gallagher has also seen his controversies, including his controversial relationship with his brother and former bandmate Noel.
Liam Gallagher now has a new album titled “C’mon You Know” and apparently, he has no regrets.
The new album was released on Friday.
Steve Earle is honoring one of his heroes.
His new album “Jerry Jeff” with The Dukes is a tribute to singer-songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker, who passed away in 2020.
“Jerry Jeff” hits theaters Friday.
have one thing to talk about
Not only is she very open about her struggles, but how plus-size women in Hollywood can lead to pressure from those who want her to be thin and those who want her to continue to represent larger women.
She reminded me that you can’t please everyone, so it’s best to find satisfaction in yourself.
something to sip
It seems like just yesterday, I got a DVD with a filter for a new NBC series called “This Is Us.”
Yes, that was a long time ago – networks are still mailing DVDs of their new shows.
Nearly six years later, the series ended, leaving many viewers heartbroken every week. It taps into life and family sensibilities in such a way that masterful storytelling is talked about long after the show is off the air.
Thank you to the Pearsons and all the other characters in their world for the joy you have brought to audiences over the years.
