Your Creative Calendar: 71 Things To See, Hear, And Read This January

Emoji prayer hands up that we’re in for some damn good entertainment in 2018—and that it starts right now.

Your Creative Calendar: 71 Things To See, Hear, And Read This January

If you were to arise on the first day of the new year and, like the mayor of Punxsutawney searching for groundhog tunnels, check out the day’s pop culture news for a hint of what’s to come this season, the prognosis would be pretty bleak.

You’d have probably seen that YouTube’s own Logan Paul, sibling of #8 on the Thirst List Jake Paul, filmed a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest and put it online. It was a whole thing—and a deeply unfortunate first entertainment-related story of 2018. But let’s not allow the very recent past to be prologue. The year ahead need not be as dark as a viral star doing forest forensics just because that’s what kicked things off. Plenty of fun awaits just this January, including Taraji P. Henson kicking ass in Proud Mary, new hypnotic audio weirdness from tUnE-yArDs, and the return of both High Maintenance and Drunk History to TV. Have a look at everything else easing you into the new year below in Fast Company‘s creative calendar for January.
