The "Inside Out" Edition
Tennis News: Happy Wimbledon Finals!
Bad (or actually irritating, more than anything else) News: Beach Ladies Tennis Tourney (for me) with a strange first round loss yesterday! Darn it!
Good news: it was a spectacular beach day, after which we made banana bread, banana nut muffins, cole slaw, dry rub successfully made and smeared on ribs tbbbq’d later.
Other news: Baz Luhrmann Elvis: a theater-worthy visual tour de force; Tom Hanks riveting as Col. Tom Parker; Elvis’ mascara and eye shadow very intriguing and acted so well by unknown (at least to me) Austin Butler. Also: definitively too long but still interesting; seemed to be made with so much need for permission of Elvis estate for the music rights that they had to gloss over the creepy Priscilla story and the appropriation/appreciation of great Black music issue. And also maybe how weird and terrible his parents were and how he died?
Next up: gonna see Everything Everywhere All At Once, also in theaters. Which is *not* the beloved Somebody, Somewhere (the title confusions of which must have peeved both the film and TV makers, possibly as much as my tennis loss peeved me) which I watched all of and adored.
People are hating on The Candy House. I loved it. You can decide for yourself.
Also, Harper’s Magazine is really good again.
That’s the tennis- and media-roundup for the week. Going to drown my sorrows in the Atlantic Ocean— but in a “swim in front of the lifeguard tower” kind of way, don’t worry! And then will return again to find the most important news of the week, delivered straight to your inbox. Politics, Pop Culture and everything in between.
