Last week Sarah emailed me, Lainey, and Emily, our site manager. Subject? Duana’s new favourite show. Body?  “This show was made with only the freshest ingredients, pureed in the most expensive blender, and poured into a tall, frosty glass just for Duana's consumption. Full Story

“The sound you are hearing is not a technical problem. It is not a musical cue. It is not a joke. It is the sound of one man's mounting anxiety. I... am that man.” Okay, you’d have to be under a rock not to know Lin-Manuel Miranda’s voice and cadence even if you’ve never seen a minute of him onstage – so read the above line in his voice. Full Story

Last week I almost caused a traffic accident. We were on a four-hour drive and had been listening to Hamilton for about an hour and a half, but then in the middle of Act 2, the thing that happens happened.

Last night I was talking with some women who had loved Leonardo DiCaprio. They appreciate him now, but when they were young, they loved him. Loved-loved. That undying teenage passion.
