I haven’t posted in over a week because I had shingles! It was a minor case, but what with one thing and the next, I just couldn’t get to The Aging Review. But I’m back! And skin has been on my mind, due to the bright red blotchy patch on my forehead, which, luckily, is now almost gone.
And so, after reading the paper, I thought I would write about the skin and exercise article in the New York Times (which, in short said that exercise is good for your skin, unless you’re exercising in the sun or extreme cold unprotected), but I got distracted by the great write-up Noah Emmerich, who is currently starring in The Americans on FX, received in The Observer. I went to college with Noah, and we recently re-connected. He was great then and is great now!
Noah’s career is really taking off thanks to a series of acclaimed performances, including in Little Children and The Truman Show, which both go a ways back at this point. Also, I was thrilled to read that he is still pals with Josh Malina, of Scandal. Theirs is, apparently, an example of enduring and mature male friendship, a welcome alternative to what TV and contemporary film would have us believe are the only options for guys. Go Noah! Go Josh! Go enduring and mature male friendships!
