This week had a soundtrack: Paul Simon’s Graceland, a used CD Daniel and I picked up last week at FYE, which is surprisingly still in business. I love this album. He loves this album. Every song is familiar and so feel-good–especially “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes.” Doing this reminds me of a road trip to the Berkshires a few years ago. We stopped at a record store on the way, bought a Hall & Oates album, and now when I think back, all the days of that little trip are set to the tune of “You Make My Dreams Come True.” Isn’t that the best?
In movie/television news, Kathryn Hahn is a bright, shining star. This year alone, I’ve seen and loved her in: Transparent (late to the show, but it’s incredible), Captain Fantastic (really enjoyed this movie), and Bad Moms. In 2009, I met her while working on How Do You Know in Philadelphia and she was as down-to-earth, smiley, and quick with a joke, as you might imagine. I’m crazy about her.
Here are the links that caught my eye this week:

I adore Seth Rogen, and since Daniel and I love to do blind taste tests (also smell tests of every candle in Target/Bed Bath & Beyond), this is the best.
