The Shins, at the Fox Theater Pomona.

I had a pretty good weekend, and I’m looking out at a week of hard work, hangouts and hopefully a superbloom. Not too bad, Zo. Not too bad.

Here’s what I’ve read lately:

1. Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s workout routine is hardcore.

2. This story about the Bahia emerald and its curse is a wild ride from start to finish.

3. The myth of California style.

4. The way Donald Trump eats and orders his steak is actually really important.

5. Google needs to rethink its whole featured answer snippet idea.

And a bonus: Missing Richard Simmons is an A+ podcast.

See you later.

Can't go to LACMA without visiting Matisse's "La Gerbe."

Can’t go to LACMA without visiting Matisse’s “La Gerbe.”

Before we get to the main event, I’d like to share one piece of wisdom that has served me well throughout my life: It’s better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you’re a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.

Here’s what I read this week:

1. Up close and personal with Donald Trump and his supporters.

2. The Fantastic Roald Dahl.

3. Should famous artists’ social media profiles be saved and archived?

4. Marie Kondo and the war on stuff.

5. This is an incredibly well-written and thoughtful feature on Chili’s.

And a bonus: A photo essay on a 600-year-old salt co-op in Peru.

I hope you’re having a wonderful summer, and that you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

4. The most important sentence on this article about Instagram’s switch to an algorithmic feed: “Our current version of the internet lives and breaths off a currency of human attention.”

5. The craving for public squares.

And a bonus: This David Bowie gifset made me laugh. What a dude.

Have a wonderful weekend.
