20 Jun 5:32pm Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing – a comic reflection on life, mortality and tench
The Guardian
The two funnymen bond by the river as they recuperate from heart operations and contemplate life without biscuits I remember it well. Staring at – practically hypnotised by – the float, a little orange stick in the water, willing it to twitch. And then, when it does, that magical moment, not quite believing it. Did it really happen, or did I imagine it? It twitches again, bobs down and goes under. You pick up the rod and strike. Yes! Resistance, a connection via a thin nylon thread to a fish. We’re in. It is a childhood memory: I don’t do fishing much these days, but I know that if I went again, it would come rushing back, that heart-quickening thrill, interspersed by long periods of very little.

The Guardian
Extraordinary talents are missing from our musical lives. Ahead of a BBC documentary, the singer and presenter wonders why, still, we hear so little of our greatest female composers Classical music is still a man’s world. Female performers in the entertainment industry learn this early. As a soprano, my career has been defined by playing muses – roles such as

20 Jun 8:02am Are video games really addictive? | Marc Lewis
The Guardian
‘Gaming disorder’ is now a medical diagnosis. But evidence of real harm is scant, and even compulsive play can have benefitsI don’t have serious arguments with my kids very often. My 12-year-old twin boys are well-mannered and cooperative. But last week they had me spitting mad. I had to ask again and again, and finally to cajole, bribe, and threaten to get them to turn off their Playstation and get in the car. Their screen time wasn’t up yet, they shot back. I don’t care, I hissed: we have to go shoe shopping. But we’re in the middle of a game! Of course video games can seem addictive. Almost every parent, or adult gamer, appreciates that. So the fact that the World Health Organization (WHO) just added a “gaming disorder” diagnosis to the

The Guardian
From a washing-up scourer to a pile of crisps, the Japanese architect draws on the most unlikely everyday objects – while testing the idea of privacy with a glass-walled public toilet A cloud of white blocks leaps from a plinth, hanging in the air like an explosion in a sugar cube factory. Nearby, a great spiral of ribbons swirls across a model landscape, like a whirlwind of noodles caught among the trees. A host of other curious creations fills the basement gallery of

From Brooklyn Nine-Nine to Lucifer: TV shows have become unkillable 20 Jun 1:00am From Brooklyn Nine-Nine to Lucifer: TV shows have become unkillable
The Guardian
Where once cancellation meant the end for a TV series, now streaming services are ensuring a second life for all shows great or small. But some things should be left to rest in peace One of the best things about the current television climate is that shows don’t really die any more. They are cancelled, yes, but only for a matter of hours. Just when you have dug out your best mourning gown, bam; a competitor has bought the rights and dragged it back to life as if nothing had happened. Fox cancelled Brooklyn Nine-Nine, so
