LA LIFE: TV Addicts Opinion, Rembrandt, Hammer Forum, Undressed, Bird Walk
I hope the cover photo with my grand dog Bruce social distancing on my patio gives you a giggle, Tomatoes. Got to find humor wherever we can these days. As we bid farewell to July and welcome in August, this TV Addict has some binge-worthy TV to recommend. Powerhouse Museums in SoCal have joined forces to bring you an incredible virtual tour of Rembrandt. The “Hammer Forum” really gets you thinking about the big issues facing us today. There’s a doozy of a podcast series from the amazing Mojo Recovery Specialist. Bird Walks are limited right now, but you can still connect to nature & birds with the Natural History Museum’s Virtual Bird Walk. And you’ll love this week’s 3T Happy Hour Podcast with an amazing female entrepreneur. Stay safe, smart, healthy and focused on the blessings in your life.
All I can say, Tomatoes is that “Hannah” Season 1 and the new Season 2 rocks big time as well as the dames starring in it. I’ve always loved Amy Schumer but after watching her doc “Expecting Amy” I have the utmost respect for her as a courageous woman. “After Life”, a British Black comedy, is perfectly done in the only way the Brits can tackle the topic. Get my picks.
This week’s guest is creator, artist, fashionista and black female entrepreneur, Amber Richele. Her tie dye clothing capsules took off at the beginning of the Pandemic and then when the world rallied around the BLM movement, she could barely keep up with all the orders. A true Instagram success story. Listen in as Amber shares how she got started with help from her family. LISTEN IN HERE.
Rembrandt in SoCal Virtual Tour
“The Rembrandt in So Cal Virtual Tour” is online exhibition exploring the works of … yes, I’ll say it again…Rembrandt in Southern California with 14 celebrated paintings from five museums. Tomatoes can enjoy the Dutch master’s paintings from home which promises to be an artistic feast for the eyes.
The Rembrandt in So Cal Virtual Tour is a collaboration between LACMA, the Hammer Museum, the Getty Museum, the Norton Simon Museum and the Timken Museum. Holy Moly! That’s some collaboration! They have teamed up to create a single resource virtual exhibition that presents all of the Rembrandt paintings in the area with high resolution and in more detail than ever before. That deserves a “Wow”, Tomatoes!
Aug 4. The Hammer Forum
The Hammer Museum hosts The Hammer Forum, which is a free ongoing series of panel discussions, with esteemed leaders in their field, that tackle a wide variety of timely, thought-provoking topics that addresses current social and political issues. That’s a mouthful. Next up, and this will really get you thinking Tomatoes, “Faithless Electors and the Will of the People”.
Moderator and Loyola Law School professor Jessica Levinson leads discussion on this topic. No worries if you miss it, Tomatoes. All Hammer Forums are recorded, and the recordings are available shortly after. For instance, past forums include topics like, Checks, Balances & the Future of the Consumer Financial Bureau, Scotus Protects LGBT Rights in the Workplace and the future of DACA.
