But I digress.
Here’s just a sample of what to get into this weekend.
Three things to watch
‘Goliath’ Season 4
“Billy is not the type, I am not the type, who likes the idea of big corporations telling us how we should live our lives,” Thornton told me. “I’m really happy that that was the final season because I think the evolution worked out perfectly.”
The final season of “Goliath” starts streaming Friday on Amazon Prime.
‘Dear White People’ Season 4
If ’90s music is your jam, you are going to love this season of “Dear White People.”
Because with this show, you have to expect the unexpected.
It’s streaming now.
It’s streaming on PBS.
Two things to listen to
Diddy is not just making the band, he’s also still making music.
“Off the Grid Vol. 1” follows his 2015 mixtape “MMM” (which stands for Money Making Mitch).
More of an entrepreneur these days, the rapper born as Sean Combs, of course, founded Bad Boy Records and launched superstars like Mary J. Blige, The Notorious B.I.G., Faith Evans and Lil’ Kim.
His new tunes are out Friday.
This one is out of this world.
“Star Trek” legend William Shatner has a new spoken word album coming out.
Oh, and it features a cut with Joe Jonas, whose new label is releasing the album.
It drops Friday.
One thing to talk about
Is there anything harder these days than trying to talk to kids?
Between them being buried in their phones and tablets or the fact that, honestly, you just aren’t considered very cool as far as they are concerned, it can be a challenge.
That’s right, pop culture can be both fun AND practical in your everyday life.
You heard it here first.
Something to sip on
The hashtag trended on Twitter this week, fueled by outrage when no performers of color won in any of the major acting categories.
Any of the calls for better diversity in Hollywood can seem complicated because it seems like the nominations and awards should go to the best performers, right?
In a perfect world, yes. But this world is far from perfect, which is why we must stay checking that the playing field isn’t so incredibly uneven that talent is overlooked.
