  • These woodblock prints of David Bowie reimagined by Japanese artist Masumi Ishikawa are just fabulous. (My Modern Met)
  • The 25 best heist movies of all time. (Vulture)
  • I enjoyed this piece on what astronauts from various countries eat when they’re in space. The Italians, unsurprisingly, have it rather good. (Atlas Obscura)
  • This new HBO show, Succession, is supposed to be good. Here’s the trailer. (YouTube)
  • And here’s a trailer for another show I’m intrigued by, AMC’s Dietland.

    A list of heist films without Topkapi? Say wha? Maximilian Schell! Melina Mercouri! Peter Ustinov! Istanbul!
    I’m going to watch it again just to prove myself right 🙂

    I am not going to watch Succession. It might be good or it might be bad. For the last several years, I have stopped watching TV shows that don’t attempt gender equity or racial diversity in their casting etc. 7 men to 3 women. While I understand this is a drama about wealthy families, my guess is most of the women are either wives or sisters or mothers – not interested. It is most likely just a macho sausage fest with a big dose Trump like vulgarity. It is a critique of contemporary society but the casting and premise seems old as the hills. We see this stuff in the news. It is a part of our national fabric. I don’t want to see fictionalized forms of this narrative.

      Yeah, I am SO TIRED of “rich white men behaving badly” genre. I just can’t muster up any enthusiasm, even if it has actors/writers/directors/etc. that I like.

        I agree. I love the people involved especially Adam McKay. Stepbrothers is go to movie in my home (YES it is true).

      I agree! I started this last night and after about 30 seconds said ugh, I don’t need to watch white men in suits tonight.

      This was exactly my thought after seeing the trailer. Glad to see that I’m not alone.

    I watched the first show of Dietland. If it works out some of the kinks it could be worthwhile.

    I saw the first two episodes of Dietland and felt like, as a woman who is well aware of the harm the beauty industry does, I was the wrong audience. The dialogue came off as preachy and obvious to me, and I hate when I feel like someone is explaining basic issues as though I had never given any thought to them. It was like reading that Glamour Magazine page, “Hey, It’s Ok…” where they idiotically list things women shouldn’t be ashamed to do, as though I am a neurotic baby woman who needs a push to be able to eat that last French fry.

    That said, the story intrigued me. I read half of the book a long time ago, so as long as I can stand being spoken down to for the rest of the season, I’ll probably keep watching.
