    Shiva Baby has been on my list and your rec bumped it closer to the top. If I may, I highly recommend The Serpent, a Netflix mini-series (how’s that for a GOACA-term?) about an Asian serial killer. I’m fixated on both the story and the 1970’s details.

      I’ve only seen three episodes of The Serpent and read that it goes downhill at episode 5, but so far I love it. It’s very stylish and even if I weren’t into the story, I’d probably love it for the look and soundtrack alone.

      Shiva Baby looks awesome – I’m going to watch it tonight.

    Ooh, wow, that Cleveland Clinic empathy vid had me chopping onions from the get-go. And it took me many minutes to realize it’s from The Before: no masks!

    Joining my movie group for the second time since the pandemic hit at a real restaurant (we are all vaccinated!) and Shiva Baby is this month’s pic. Looking forward to the discussion and dinner.

    P.S. I <3 Chris Meloni. His comedic roles are the best.( e.g., WHAS)

    I was so startled to see that Cleveland Clinic video. I have watched it hundreds of times. I was Director of Patient Experience at a local hospital and I showed that video to all new employees to teach them about empathy. It never failed to get a reaction, and employees told me that it really made them remember to treat everyone around them kindly – including their fellow employees. Thank you for sharing this.

    If you love dog photos, may I recommend the instagram of my friend @vincentjmusi? He’s a former Nat Geo photographer who now lives in South Carolina and makes astounding portraits of peoples’ dogs with his wife Callie (a former White House photographer). Every Sunday he posts a portrait session and writes a charming and hilarious caption. I promise you that it will chase your Sunday Scaries and make your entire week.

    I watched “Shiva Baby” last weekend and my reaction was mixed. Much of it was very cringe-making, but I think that’s what they were going for. If that was the case, the filmmakers succeeded. It’s also possible that my expectations were at fault. I didn’t expect her sugar daddy to be young, nor that **spoiler alert** she would be bi-sexual. Insert Seinfeld quote here. If your time is limited I’d recommend “Promising Young Woman” as a much better movie.

    If you missed this NYT article about Kati Kariko, the unfunded, precariously employed , immigrant scientist whose persistence in researching mRNA made the Pfizer and Modern Covid-19 vaccines possible, it’s an amazing story.

    (Also, fund basic research! You can *never* know what will turn out to be essential knowledge.)

    I just want to thank Jen R. for mentioning the movie Only When I Laugh (right now it’s streaming on Amazon Prime) – wow, what a throwback! Can’t beat that early-80s Woody Allenish aesthetic but without Woody Allen himself. A win-win!
