weekend edition 09

Howdy, friends! What are your weekend plans? I'm a visiting author at the Augusta Literary Festival, giving a poetry reading at a local art salon, and giving a lecture at an Atlanta retirement community. And I'm planning a few taste stops at restaurants along the way. Here's what I've been reading/watching/listening to this week.

A 7-minute masterclass in filmmaking, featuring the Coen brothers.

Behind the scenes pictures of the Vanity Fair Oscar party.

5 easy ways to have a good day.

The "Whispering Ryan Gosling" memes crack me up.

Can't wait to watch the Maya Angelou documentary on the PBS app.

Does social media activism work?

Does this creep you out, too?

Science is cool.

What your pajamas say about you.

I'm making these smoothies next week. For sure.

The ultimate cool girl.

These illustrations show what it's like to live with depression.

I can't stop watching this video.
