Yes Erin had to BLAST music and drive for a bit after a tough day at work. Particularly the Girl Talk album Feed the Animals. Here is a youtube video of driving Wilshire Blvd at night because apparently that’s something available on the internet.

 

 

 

Sun Bum is a cruelty free, gluten free, vegan and reef friendly as well as paraben and sulfate free line of products for your whole life in the sun but Erin particularly loves their sunscreens! Plus their tagline is “Trust the Bum” and who doesn’t love that? 

 

The Summit Bum is made by Thrupack and probably tangible proof that Erin is “so LA” sometimes. But the bag really is made for hikers and has some ingenuity in the design to make it easy to carry.  Do you have a fanny pack/bum bag? Are you in our Wolfgang? 

Playing House was a USA show staring Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair about two childhood friends that always kept in touch and find themselves living together. It has SO much heart, and yay Lady Friendships, and genuinely relatable comedy. 

Erin’s gonna be on soap boxes next week like...

Erin saw a taping of the comedy podcast How Did This Get Made in Los Angeles with Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas. 

 

She’s been rewatching some of the trio’s work including: The League, Brooklyn 99, Big Mouth and also recommends Fresh Off the Boat, Grace and Frankie, and Burning Love. 

 

“Friend” of the show Aziz Ansari has a new netflix special called Right Now.  It is very different from his previous specials and addresses important topics around his image, mistakes, and will still make you laugh. Go Aziz!

 

 

The library Erin’s friend was talking about is White House Public Library in White House, Tennessee. They have amazing programs. Please support your local and national libraries!

Mr. Wizard aka Don Herbert had a tv program on Nickelodeon called Mr. Wizard’s World from 1983-1991 that taught kids about SCIENCE. Before this was the show Watch Mr. Wizard from 1951-1965 and the Smithsonian has an interesting article about him here.

There is no picture, trailer or info on Us, because you just need to see it without any outside exposure.
