March’s lion has yet to yield to April’s lamb. Between the earth and a slate tapestry of winter clouds, life goes on in the five boroughs.
The March edition of Miscellaneous — Athletics’ no-frills round-up of the cultural items that inspire us each month — features a countryside jaunt through the screen adaptation of Anthony Trollope’s 1858 novel Doctor Thorne, a kaleidoscopic glimpse into the mind of David Bowie at the Brooklyn Museum, and some genre-defying psychedelia from Canadian rocker U.S. Girls. Pull on your wool socks, turn up your collar, and seize these cultural treasures from the jaws of the lion of March. You’ll be glad you did.
Stay tuned for more editions of Miscellaneous in the coming months.

“My soul, guard against pomp and glory.
And if you cannot curb your ambitions,
at least pursue them hesitantly, cautiously.
And the higher you go,
the more searching and careful you need to be.”
— From “The Ides of March” by C.P. Cavafy (1863-1933)
