Can you help me identify this artist?

Okay, this painter is a male, middle aged or older. I believe they are living in Paris but are American and their paintings look like candid snapshots, the paint seems to have a bit of “flash” but where you can’t quite see the subjects faces because they’re blurred. Lots are of nightlife in the 80’s I think…. Does this ring a bell? [more inside]

What's your favorite video of cherry blossom petals falling?

I'd love to see a calming video of cherry petals falling. I'd prefer no special effect (no slow motion), definitely no AI or generated imagery, ideally no people. Still camera is better than panning. Slow random meditative occasional petals are better than big gusts of petals. I will turn off the sound so audio is unimportant. Thanks!

What song is this, and was it in Arrested Development?

I just noticed that the song in this scene of Grey's Anatomy makes me immediately think of Arrested Development. Was it actually used there? I feel like it was one of their themes for pratfalls. For that matter, what's it called? Thanks!

Best of ‘Included in your (Audible) subscription’?

What is the best content on audible that is included with a standard subscription? So far, for example, I have found the complete Sherlock Holmes read by Stephen Fry, and a handful of shorts set in METAtropolis by some of my favorite authors, a couple Scalzis, the first Murderbot. What else should I look at (har har). Outstanding reader and outstanding content both welcome.

Action/comedy where ordinary woman is swept into adventure

Lately I’ve enjoyed the movies Argylle, Spy, and The Lost City. I think part of what I like is that they’re witty action/comedies that involve ordinary, likeable women going about their routine lives who are then suddenly swept into espionage or adventure. Can you recommend similar non-sexist action/comedies that I might like? [more inside]

How about you recommend a movie for ME this time?

Hi! I'm that MeFite who likes to recommend movies to people. A friend IRL asked for a highly specific recommendation that actually has me stuck. She asked for "optimistic, not-sad movies about robots for grown-ups." And you know what? Robot movies, it turns out, are usually pessimistic, sad, or for children. Frequently, they are at least two of these things. This request actually has me stuck. Ideas?

Women literary/intellectual figures

I was just reading an article about Susan Sontag, and was somewhat surprised to realize I've never read any of her writing. I also just recently read Joan Didion for the first time. What other significant women literary figures or public intellectuals have I missed out on? From any era. I'm not asking about women writers generally, but the kind of writers who create "culture" (in the old fashioned use of the term), about whom magazine profiles are written, and who are asked to comment on the zeitgeist. Anne Fadiman is probably another example.
