[10/3] Recently Read, Watched, and Listened

Recently Read

Monstress, vol 5: Warchild, by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda – Wow, intense build up throughout this one. There are a few spreads where I considered finding a way to enlarge and hang on my wall (they were stunningly gorgeous).

The Best American Short Stories, edited by Roxane Gay – A really good and diverse (in character, genre, and writer) collection.

Uncommon Type, by Tom Hanks – Another good collection of short stories. I like the common thread running throughout.


Recently Watched

3rd Rock From the Sun – currently at s2 e2. More silliness because, well… that’s what is needed right now.

Taco Chronicles – vol. 2. I appreciated the treatment they gave to the “American Taco” episode, addressing head-on whether it is a “real taco or not” (which I think is a ridiculous argument). And while I watch this series mainly for the food porn and the fun personalities highlighted, I do really love learning about the history behind the specific taco types. I liked “Burrito” and “Pescado” episodes a lot.

The Foreigner (2017) – Who doesn’t like an old fashioned “old ex-special forces guy seeks revenge when his daughter is innocently killed by the IRA” movie every now and then?


Recently Listened

This week’s rotation included Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Yo-Yo Ma, The Ahn Trio, and Yusuf Cat Stevens.

[Single] “Impossible Weight (Feat. Sharon Van Etten)”, by Deep Sea Diver – I like the guitars riffs and overall rhythm in this one. Was a good pick me up for the week.

[Single] “Guanaco”, by Terror/Cactus – A chill, instrumental track that I played In the background while doing some work.

[Podcast] Extra Spicy: Barbecue That’s Worth the Wait – Other than stoking a strong craving for barbecue from Horn BBQ, this was a very heartwarming story about finding and following your passion.
