Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: I hope you haven’t succumbed to “Ant-Man and the Wasp.” “Whitney” is an authorized account of Miss Houston’s life so don’t expect many drug or sex revelations. TV/Streaming: Time to catch up on the latest episodes of “The Great British Baking Show” — you know, the one with pudgy, perpetually tanned Paul and sweet but firm Mary. Music: Isn’t it marvelous that John Coltrane has a “lost album“? Drake’s “Scorpion” may rule the streaming charts, but he’s not even in the Top Ten on Amazon. Books: I’m re-reading two summertime favorites, “My Antonia” and “Song of the Lark,” both by Willa Cather. Sports: If Brazil take the World Cup, Neymar deserves not only a soccer trophy but an Academy Award for acting: all those baby-ish antics on the turf. Finally: When you have nothing to say it’s sometimes better to say nothing.
