So ... how's YOUR week been going?
It's been an absolutely bonkers week of news and announcements, and if you're like me, you're exhausted, overwhelmed, sad and maybe even a touch scared about the state of the world – and we don't even have sports or just about anything else as a distraction since seemingly everything's been cancelled or postponed. So let's take a break for just five minutes and let the soothing sounds of NPR, Packers fandom and a handsome British accent take us away.
Former One Direction member and current pop star Harry Styles recently dropped by NPR for a Tiny Desk concert performance that'll run on Monday – and I'm sure that'll be nice, but we're not here to talk about that. We're here to talk about this interview between Styles and NPR's Stephen Thompson about why the heck a British pop star became a Green Bay Packers football fan – and a legitimate one at that, complete with a tattoo of the Packers' iconic G. During the clip, you'll find out why Styles – decked out in an Aaron Rodgers jersey and a giant Green Bay hand – got that tattoo in the first place, his experience with Lambeau Field and the "Horse Collar" sausage, and you'll even get a "Go Pack Go!" from the pop idol.
But, most important of all, you'll get five minutes of not thinking about the words "coronavirus" or "outbreak" or "toilet paper shortage." And much like the Green Bay Packers, that's something we can all get behind.
Be sure to check out the rest of NPR's Tiny Desk performances and interviews on their website as well.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
