I have two. First, the new Lorde album dropped and it is, as expected, a banger. The first single, mood ring is very Lorde - complex, layered, and also a total pop bop.


The second is bittersweet. The British comedian Sean Lock passed away from cancer a few days ago. While that is very sad for me, he was on one of my very favorite British TV shows (8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown), and I have been watching some "best of" compilations from the show this week, all of which confirm the brilliance of Sean Lock's wit. His sense of humor made me laugh, and I will always be grateful for that.
