The Daily T LOunge for May 4, 2020

Posted on May 04, 2020

VyTA Covent Garden Bar and Restaurant, London, England


Bold colors for spring, darlings! That’s what we’re in the mood for and that’s what today’s lounge is serving. Even though our time out in the sunshine is limited and it’s hard to smell the flowers with a mask on, we are committed to enjoying the passing of the season even if most of it is being viewed from inside.

Our latest resolution is to NOT bake anything for the next seven days. Your boys need some fruit and veg. Other than that, we’re just chugging along, working on a magazine article pitch, a book proposal, and a virtual book fair presentation on the side. We rearranged the furniture in our bedroom last month to make it more of a second apartment and in doing so, took all the hangings off the wall, never to hang them again, it seems. We need to paint that room and we’ve been dragging our feet on it, so it may just happen in this new, scary, non-baking reality.

We have lots of lovely little fashiony things for you too look at this first Monday in May, but before we get to them, please check out the specials on today’s menu:


Porches, Yards, Driveways, Parking Lots: Where the Neighborhood Is Now
How we come together when we can’t go very far.


How We Got to Sesame Street
The show was created to put kids’ screen time to good use. Half a century later, how is it holding up?
In 1969, the Children’s Television Workshop made a twenty-six-minute pitch reel to line up stations to air a radically new program that appeared to have, as yet, no title. Instead, a team of fleece- and fur- and muddle-headed puppets were seen brainstorming in a boardroom.


Substitution City
You’ve probably gained a lot of confidence in the kitchen lately. Keep on riffing, whether you’re making soup, fried rice, or a comforting lasagna.


Juilliard Students and Celebrity Alumni Band Together for a Special Lockdown Performance of “Bolero”
As life under lockdown continues, the arts community is finding new ways to evolve its performances onto online formats. From special Broadway productions to weekly Met opera streams, these virtual streams foster creative collaboration, while continuing to inspire and entertain audiences who are sheltering in place. The latest to partake in the movement is The Juilliard School in New York City: the performing arts school—which is often regarded as the best in North America—banded together its current students and celebrity alumni for a special Zoom performance, set to French composer Maurice Ravel’s classic, “Bolero.”


Killing Eve‘s Harriet Walter On Her First Murder: ‘I Don’t Usually Play The Naughty Girl’
From mentoring Villanelle to exploiting the Roy heirs on ‘Succession,’ Walter opens up about playing TV’s most delicious villains.


Hollywood: Who Was Hattie McDaniel, The First Black Oscar Winner Played By Queen Latifah?
With the new Netflix miniseries Hollywood, creator Ryan Murphy looked to revise some of the Golden Age of cinema’s wrongs by writing more hopeful storylines for real-life stars forced to battle racism and homophobia. Among the historical figures in the show is Hattie McDaniel, portrayed by Queen Latifah, who was the first black actor to win an Academy Award. Here’s what else you need to know about the Gone With the Wind star.
