What to Inhale: In a clear example of interviewer typecasting, I will be chatting with the creators (and star) of HBO’s High Maintenance as part of the City Arts and Lectures series at San Francisco’s Nourse Theater. If you’re in or around the Bay Area, grab some tickets and join us on February 18. (If you don’t want to risk getting a contact high, I suggest sitting in the balcony.)
+ What to Doc: I’ve mentioned this documentary before, but just in case you haven’t seen it yet, now is the perfect time to watch Zero Days, an absolutely riveting documentary on the Stuxnet virus and the rise of modern-day cyber warfare.
+ What to Hear: Marc Maron interviews Bruce Springsteen.
+ What to Worry About: “We’re going back to the kind of dangers we had during the Cold War,” Perry said. “I really thought in 1990, 1991, 1992, that we left those behind us. We’re starting to re-invent them. We and the Russians and others don’t understand that what we’re doing is re-creating those dangers—or maybe they don’t remember the dangers.” From Politico Magazine: Bill Perry Is Terrified About Nukes. Why Aren’t You?
+ What to Read: “When a creature mysteriously turns up dead in Alaska — be it a sea otter, polar bear, or humpback whale—veterinary pathologist Kathy Burek gets the call.” From Outside: The Detective of Northern Oddities.
+ What to Wear: For a few more days, the NextDraft Read Real News t-shirt is back on sale. Get it now. They look awesome in person.
