13 Thoughts on This week on Everything is Fine

    Loved today’s podcast. Thank you both for posting on Monday––listening always gets me through my Monday morning workout when I really just do NOT want to work out. Plus, y’all are super entertaining. Here’s something to add to the “what to watch” list––I read Station Eleven when it was first published (2015)––loved it even though dystopia isn’t really my genre––so was extremely leery of what HBOmax would do with their series based on the book. Really and truly pleasantly surprised. Well acted, well written and even though the adaptation was a radically different interpretation I thought it was pretty darn brilliant. The folks I know who watched it without reading the book weren’t so enamored so that may be a thing or maybe those folks are just stupid.

      I watched the series and read the book. I enjoyed both, although the book stressed me out as I read it at the very start of the pandemic. Also, her book The Glass Hotel is much better and one of my recent favorites, if you’re looking for a recommendation. My tv recommendation is The Righteous Gemstones, a very Succession-like comedy about a mega church family whose father is aging out of the family business and looking at one of his incompetent kids to replace him. My new guilty pleasure show is a teen mystery called Cruel Summer, which automatically started playing after a different show ended while I was working on an art project. It involves to teen girls, one of whom survives a kidnapping and then accuses the other of having discovered her but saying nothing. The big mystery is which one is lying. I got sooo sucked in. It’s also set in the 90s and has a great Yellowjackets type punk 90s girl band soundtrack. It’s on Hulu.

      I binged the series last month (thought the casting was superb!) and the book is waiting for me once I finish Matrix, by Lauren Groff, which I highly recommend. Had a few false starts but I am so glad I kept going.

        I agree, Eloise, the casting was excellent and one of the few series/movies I’ve seen where no one in the cast is “barbie beautiful” and there are a variety of normal bodies. Lauren Groff’s Matrix is so, so good.

    I’ve only listened to the first 15 minutes of the podcast, but Greer Chicago and Jenni Bick are great online sources for pens and notebooks. And the comments section of a late summer/early fall post on things we love or little things we love or something like that was full of specific notebook and pen suggestions.

      Almost had to wipe my screen off- the notebooks at Greer Chicago are drool worthy! Thanks for the introduction.

          Thanks, Jenny (but, spoiler alert, my “online” persona is way more stylish than I am!)

    I haven’t listened yet, but I really hope it’s the cheese pants.

    This episode is fantastic, especially about the struggles of writing–and who to write for if we’re not looking for a marquee literary career but just to write something worth reading.

    I really appreciate y’all sharing the word about We Need to Talk About Cosby. I edited two of the episodes and it means a lot to me that you two shone a spotlight on it.

    This episode echoed how I’m feeling about work. It’s possible to be very sick of precisely what you’re very good at, which I find so unsettling. It’s got me stuck in neutral.
