A curated selection of what we’ve been watching, reading, and buzzing about in the month of November. From saying goodbye to Daniel Day-Lewis to living in the new world of #280, here’s what this past month has brought us.

Just in case you forgot—or have simply decided to tune it out and live silently in denial—Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring from the world of acting. His last film will be the Paul Thomas Anderson-helmed flick, Phantom Thread. The trailer dropped and the release is imminent, which means DD-L’s last time acting will soon be thrust upon us. Best way to mourn? Watch the trailer (below), see the movie, do the same for every other film he’s ever starred in, repeat.

Time magazine has yet to announce their person of the year, but they did give us a list of the top podcasts of 2017. Their list features some of our favorites and offers up some new things to listen to.

Twitter unleashed the new 280 character limit on the world earlier this month, and people had some fun. Some highlights here, here, and here. #280.

Thanks to our client, Superprime, the Funkhaus content team got the chance to see two new films this past month: Kiku Ohe’s The Lines and the Malloy Brothers’ The Tribes of Palos Verdes. You can view the trailer for Tribes below and learn more about Ohe’s film here.
