What Else is Happening?
🏈 NFL Combine
Fantasy football owners rejoice. The NFL Combine starts this week, ending the dull NFL news cycle that started with Julian Edelman shaving his beard and ended with a high profile arrest at a Florida massage parlor.
🌔 Apollo 11 Premiere
There aren't a lot of movies premiering this week, but one we’d like to mention is Apollo 11. It’s a new documentary from Todd Douglas Miller crafted from newly discovered 65mm footage and dialogue of the event.

Starting today, Viceland will be launching a new nightly two-hour live show recapping the day in pop culture. It will be hosted by a panel of up and coming performers: Marie Fraustin, Fat Tony, Sandy Honig, and Zack Fox.
🔌 Unplug Day
Do your best this Friday to disconnect from your digital devices, you’ll be surprised how productive you can be. The insta-fam can wait.
🏰 Leaving Neverland
HBO is releasing a two-part, four-hour documentary that was the most controversial film at Sundance this year. The film examines the claims of two men who say they were sexually abused by Michael Jackson. Critics found the film devastating and effective - everyone's going to be talking about this one.
🐟 Dr. Seuss Day
‘Oh, The Places You’ll Go!’ was the last book published by Dr. Seuss, ‘The Pocket Book of Boners’ being the first. Yes, you read that right. Between them are over 60 children's books, so pick one up this Saturday and give it a read.
