Sex, a cup of coffee the morning after, a quality bag of weed: as the Los Angeles R. & B. singer Miguel puts it, in a single from 2014, it is the “simplethings” that make life worthwhile. He seems to pursue the higher peaks of pleasure for their own sake, but throughout his new album, “War & Leisure,” Miguel wonders whether we can make an actual life out of moments of bliss.

One year after an estimated two million women marched across the U.S., supporters lined up in New York and scores of other cities for 2018’s #WomensMarch. Bettina Cruz Velásquez, fifty-five, is visiting from Oaxaca, Mexico, for a few days. “It’s a very symbolic march for women all over the world,” she said, through a translator. See our Stories for more scenes from the march. Photograph by @elizabethbick.

One year ago today, Donald Trump was sworn in as President. At the time, the balmy narrative was that he would grow into the position. But since then, the optimists have, for the most part, been proven wrong.

How has “Sesame Street” evolved since its move to HBO? Episodes now run a peppy half-hour, instead of the sixty-minute servings of yore. Elmo has a new sidekick named Smartie, an animated yellow phone, whose catchphrase is “Look it up.” And this season, the show’s 46th, brings a new franchise, “Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck,” where the charismatic blue glutton acquaints himself with the farm-to-table scene.

Don’t feel like cooking tonight? Why not try Werkstatt, a casual spot in Prospect Park South, where the leading New York chef Thomas Ferlesch cooks delicious Viennese fare. Order a big soft pretzel and then a tangy bratwurst or smoked Polish kielbasa, served on a heaping pile of sauerkraut and potatoes. For dessert, try the apple strudel or the Linzer torte, and, when one of the friendly servers offers up a mug of steaming glühwein to wash it all down, accept without hesitation.

The most notorious “America’s Next Top Model” moment—when Tyra Banks’s patience was tested by a contestant who seemed insufficiently devastated by having been eliminated—lingers as a perfect demonstration of the show’s conflicting desires. On one hand, Banks seeks to impart harsh lessons about an industry known for its superficial strictures. On the other, she expects to connect with contestants as a sort of rarefied fairy godmother, capable of inspiring rags-to-riches stories even as she dashes who knows how many dreams.

The Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan, who died on Monday, had a sublime recklessness to her voice that favored meaning over conventional prettiness. In the early nineties, she helped further the then-iffy-seeming idea that a woman could be both beautiful and ferocious. She appeared accountable only to some internal voice—which made young women like @amandapetrusich feel like they could be, too. Click the link in our bio to read more.

It was Richard Avedon’s photographs and James Baldwin’s text, in “Nothing Personal,” that made @hilton.als realize that current events can be art—that being humane is art. He wrote about what the book means to him in the introduction to a facsimile edition, which was recently released by Taschen. Read an excerpt at the link in our bio.

Make laundry day a little more fun with Sally Gall's whimsical photographs of clean clothes flapping on a line. Much of the wash looks rather anonymous, just streaming scarves or other bits of fabric, but the biggest blossoms are distinctly feminine: skirts that Gall invites us to look up. “I’m searching for poetry in the everyday,” she says.

Passive aggression reaches new comedic heights in “Miles for Mary,” which tracks the efforts of earnest high-school teachers to organize a fund-raising telethon in 1988 Ohio. Devised and performed by the Mad Ones, it takes place in the teachers’ lounge, and swiftly reveals the frustrations bubbling under a veneer of ingratiating politeness. See it at Playwrights Horizons, through February 4th. Photograph by @erichelgas for TNY.
