Holly Golightly – “Do the Get Along” (2018)

Longtime fan of Holly Golightly and her latest album, “Do the Get Along”, is more of the good stuff she’s known for. If you’re unfamiliar with her work this album is a good introduction. The song I’d recommend is “Satan Is His Name”:

It’s a smoldering slow jam that makes it clear that, with 20+ years in the game, Holly Golightly still has it.

Homecoming (2018 Amazon Prime)

Homecoming is Julia Roberts acting on television and it’s terrific. The story is based on a podcast, which is cool, and it is a 10-episode show available on Amazon Prime Video.

Julia Roberts is a great actor. I forget sometimes, because I don’t generally follow her work (and shame on me for that), but man-oh-man she takes this well-written and well-developed story and straight crushes it with her performance.

The episodes are all about 30 minutes so it’s an easy binge for a winter weekend.
