Friday is here, and it's a long weekend. How great is that?
Whether you are heading to the beach, getting together with friends, or just grilling and chilling, I hope you have a relaxing weekend. The world is crazy stressful, so please remember to take care of yourself. One great way to take it easy is to spend the evening with a great movie or T.V. show. I've got one of each for you!
This week's movie selection is Adam Sandler's latest flick for Netflix, Hustle. If you missed Uncut Gems, this one might surprise you: Sandler is damn good here. Forget all the shenanigans of his early work; Adam Sandler is clearly coming into his own. Hustle is a surprisingly solid feel-good movie with great performances all-around. Give it a shot.
I'm not sure why it took me so long, but I finally caught the T.V. series Barry on HBO Max. Guess what? It's awesome. A weird combination of over-the-top violence and dark comedy; somehow, it all just works. Bill Hader is brilliant here, and it's hard to overstate how good Henry Winkler is as a comedic actor. I love this show and can't wait to see where it goes in season four. Binge it!
I recently discovered a global radio station that simply blew my mind. It's called NTS Radio. Started in 2011 in London, it's now an online radio station that plays the most amazing, strangest, beautiful music ever. It's hard to describe, but trust me, if you are tired of the same old songs on your streaming platform, give this free online station a try.
Enjoy the weekend, and please stay safe!
