‘Worth’: Film Review

As a child, when future TV host Fred Rogers would see scary images on the news, his mother would tell him, “Look for the heroes.” If Fred were a boy today, she’d add, “Look for Ken Feinberg.” Feinberg, the lawyer at the center of Sara Colangelo’s “Worth,” specializes in putting a price tag on human […]

How to Discover the Work You Were Created For (with Jordan Raynor)

Have you ever wondered how you can discover the work you were created for? This is exactly the topic we’re tackling in this article. I recently interviewed Jordan Raynor, the bestselling author of Called to Create, which I read a couple years ago and I loved it. And I had the opportunity of running into him at a Dave Ramsey event. Jordan just released his new book called Master of One, which we’re going to talk about some of the stuff in it. Without further ado, let’s drop in on th...

Senior Moments: It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and here’s why

The film “It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” brought actor Tom Hanks an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of the lovable Fred Rogers. For 33 years, young children sat in front of TVs to become a part of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” It was safe and secure, fun and friendly and modeled kindness, a bit like my neighborhood. Last weekend, a bad cold kept me from walking up and down the street with my neighbors, wine glass in hand, for the annual progressive dinner on our block. As I watch...

The First and Last Time Mister Rogers Sang “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” on TV

Including special shows, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood ran for 912 episodes and at the beginning of each one, Rogers sang “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” while putting his sweater on and changing his shoes. In the video above, you can compare his rendition of the song from the first episode (February 19, 1968) and the final episode (August 31, 2001). It would take a significant effort (and might actually be impossible because he sings the song at a different pace each time), but I’d love to see so...

The 50 Greatest Movie Moments of 2019

We don’t always remember entire movies – we remember the moments. We recall that one glorious shot. We think of that telling glance, that hilarious one-liner, that shocking action scene. Heck, we sometimes remember a great moment from a bad movie more often than an entire competent movie. And with another year in cinema behind us, it’s time to look back.

The First & Last Time Mister Rogers Sang “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” (1968-2001)

Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, the iconic television series that ran from 1968 to 2001, is a major childhood touchstone for so many. Raise your hand if you have a Pavlovian response to the familiar opening segment, in which Fred Rogers opens the front door to his humble living room set, heads to the closet, singing, to exchange his jacket for a comfy cardigan sweater, and then sits on a wooden deacon’s bench to swap out his street shoes for a pair of canvas sneakers. As per the show's website...

New Year’s Brunch, December 28 2019

Hello, friends, and welcome to the weekend. Ready for a New Year’s Brunch? I actually don’t have any items about New Years in the New Year’s Brunch. I just like saying New Year’s Brunch. It makes me feel sophisticated and cosmopolitan. Don’t judge. But it is still holiday time, so this week’s entries are all on the light side. Hope you don’t mind. Octopus jail-break.

Do Kids Today Still Like Mister Rogers?

Fred Rogers and his Neighborhood may seem to belong to a bygone age of slow children’s media, but when Mary Pflum Peterson introduced the show to her four children, she found that they engaged with the show like kids back in the 70s and 80s did. I asked my youngest two, as they obsessed over the fish, what was it about the show that appealed to them. After a beat, they gave me that look that parents will readily recognize, the one that best translates to “Isn’t it obvious?” “He likes kids, M...

Norman Fischer (poet, zen priest) – the only way out of the catastrophe we’re in

The other day on social media a friend asked what the heck is up with this Mr. Rogers revival. Why does everyone suddenly love this guy so much? Moments before, I had been listening to a new podcast about Dolly Parton, and her weird, almost saintlike ability to bring people together across cultural divides. In a moment of deep mistrust and cynicism, there's this hunger for people and things worth believing in. I've also got Bodhisattvas on the brain lately. In Mahayana Buddhism, Bodhisattvas...

Mr. Rogers Wasn’t a Saint, He Was One of Us

Last week, a friend and I went to see Last Christmas. It was sold out, which turned out to be a stroke of holiday good luck. We saw the Mister Rogers biopic instead, and I think it made us kinder. The filmmakers had recreated the show’s details perfectly. The busy piano theme that accompanies the trolley. The way Mr. Rogers changed shoes while he sang. The unexplained traffic light in his living room. The nostalgic effect was intense. Apparently I hadn’t seen much of Mister Rogers’ ...

How Makeup, Hair and Costume Designers Turned Tom Hanks Into Fred Rogers

“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” director Marielle Heller didn’t want Tom Hanks to wear any prosthetics when playing Fred Rogers in the biopic, which was inspired by the Esquire article “Can You Say … Hero?” by Tom Junod (played by Matthew Rhys as a character named Lloyd Vogel). Heller felt such measures would throw up […]

The Deep Fear That Makes Us Turn to Mister Rogers

I’ve spent a lot of time with Mister Rogers over the last three years as I researched and wrote my book about his life and faith. Throughout, I have been fascinated by the question of why we keep summoning him forth from memory. For decades, we have recalled Fred whenever something terrible happened in our world, sharing his comforting words and image on social media. Then, in the last couple of years, we’ve dug a little deeper, with documentary and books (and merch!) galore. This week, the fa...
