stumbled across this yesterday: the detectorists. definitely wistful and subtle. think its on netflix.

This "wistful, subtle comedy" (Guardian, UK) was selected by the New York Times and the Hollywood Reporter as one of 2016's best shows. Winner of the BAFTA Award for best comedy, the series follows the eccentric members of the Danebury Metal Detecting Club as they search for treasure in the English countryside. Written and directed by star Mackenzie Crook (The Office), Detectorists also features outstanding performances by Toby Jones (The Hunger Games), Rachael Stirling (The Bletchley Circle), and Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones).

Captain Beefheart, a rock legend, recently died. Your gallery represented him as a painter under his real name, Don van Vliet. How did you discover him?

I owe Penck for Beefheart. In East Germany, there was a lively black market for LPs, and Beefheart’s records were the most expensive of all. Penck was a huge fan of Beefheart as a musician, and revealed to me one day that Beefheart was also a painter; so I got in touch with him. He had stopped playing music because he hated the music market, and although as a painter he was totally authentic, no one really took him seriously. The most unbelievable freaks -- rock fans -- came to his exhibitions; occasionally a few pictures would be sold. 

However, I was not able to position him, and so far there has been only one museum exhibition of his work, in San Francisco. I visited him a few times in California. He lived in a wooden house, and I could always find him sitting on the veranda and looking out to sea. Once I asked him what he saw. He replied: “Seals. Seals. Sometimes it looks like a seal, but it’s a surfer. And then a shark gets him.”

sorry sweetie but your dad is a fucking scumbag. looking forward to his future indictment. 

good news! i can finally feel uncomfortable outside of specifically designated "free dance zones."

A nearly century-old law that turned New York bars into no-dancing zones, prevented singers like Billie Holiday and Ray Charles from performing and drew protest from Frank Sinatra, is finally set to be struck down.

im not watching the world series but i kind of track on some absolutely batshit games. heres the scoring summary thus far for tonights epic heading towards hour five. theres been a lot of talk about the construction fo the ball this season as homeruns are up dramatically but even more so in the playoffs as the complaint relates to the slickness making it harder to grip.
