Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: Not much new this weekend so I again recommend “A Quiet Passion,” with Cynthia Nixon as Emily Dickinson. Absolutely lovely. TV/Streaming: Catch up with the new season of “The Get Down” on Netflix. And on Sunday check out the season premiere of “Silicon Valley” on HBO. Music: Why anyone would spend to support the career of that a-one asshole John Mayer is beyond me. But if you like this sort of thing, check out “The Search for Everything.” I guess Mayer now thinks he’s Stephen Hawking’s successor. Books: Isn’t it amazing the capacity for liberals to self-flagellate? The rate at which they’re snapping up the what-went-wrong-with-Hillary analysis, “Shattered,” is mind-boggling. Prepare for the miniseries by reading Ms. Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Sports: I’d be happy that the Rangers are still in the NHL playoffs if some of their fans weren’t so racist and homophobic. Finally: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” (Maya Angelou)
