QUOTABLES!
quote of the day
It's very hard to lose weight in the Trump era... I'm trying so hard to have it not turn into 30 pounds. I think it tests our ability to not want to numb out. There's so many things that are hard to hear every day that you do want to have some Oreos. Like people say, what do you invest in during the Trump era? I feel like, Hostess Cakes. Most of us are just scared and eating ice cream.

I'm pretty mesmerized so far by HBO's THE YOUNG POPE. I watched it because, well, it's HBO and because of JUDE LAW. Knew nothing about it going in. And yet, I was totally surprised. Have watched the first two episodes twice already. It begs multiple viewings. The opening images in episode 1 are off the charts. Dialogue clever and biting. Great cast. Jude Law is awesome. SILVIO ORLANDO as CARDINAL SECRETARY OF STATE and CÉCILE DE FRANCE as CMO of THE HOLY SEE are fantastic. Love the vibe and imagery. The beautiful backgrounds and the sparse spaces. Politics. Intrigue. Myth making. Marketing. It's all coming. No spoilers. Go watch... Psychiatrists and psychologists booked through the roof since November. STEVE BANNON wants to burn AMERICA down. TRUMP is doing it for him... The number one concern that TV channels should have in their cable negotiations is product roadmap. Fees second. The cable product UEX is hurting the TV industry... CARRIE MATHISON's AIRBNB... Children with ALEXA or GOOGLE HOME. The end of adult patience... I highly recommend ALIVECOR's KARDIA device for health. Listen to your body... My beloved TWITTER handle search is mystifying... I have to say, one glass of Pinot Noir makes me feel better... If you lie for a living I hope you are tortured for eternity... This made me LOL. But this was just pure genius... Time is the most valuable commodity. Don't waste it on people or things you cannot impact... Congrats to friend and REDEF investor BRETT RATNER on his upcoming WALK OF FAME STAR... Happy Birthday to BENJAMIN WHITE, AARON LABERGE, ABBY TERKUHLE, JASON BINN, DOTTIE MATTISON, RACHEL HIGGINS, LUKE KALLIS and ALAN GASMER. Belated to SCOT LERNER, ROB GLASER, MICHAEL KNUDSEN, DON LOEB, ERIK WACHTMEISTER and KENNY DICHTER.
