I was too sidetracked this week to get into any recreational reading. But there is plenty on the list so, hoping to make up for it this coming week.
3rd Rock From the Sun – currently at s2 e10. Jan Hooks is amazing. Tommy falling for his teacher and justifying it because he feels he is really older than his body looks is classic. Sally’s constant pushback against the roles others push on her “because she is the woman” gets better and better.
Star Trek: Lower Decks – pure fun with plenty of callbacks to all of the other franchises. The season finale was very entertaining.
Fargo – currently at s4, e4 – This definitely has the same look/feel, pacing, and great acting associated with the show. I love the visuals, from the framing to the colors; it’s beautiful photography. Season 2 was amazing and still is my favorite season. This one is entertaining but, just not as good. At least so far.
This week’s rotation included Smokey Brights, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Caro Emerald, and Janelle Monáe.
[Single] “La Incondicional” by La Dame Blanche – I love the guitar juxtaposition against the beat.
[Single] “Turntables” by Janelle Monáe – I have no excuse for always forgetting how good her music is.
[Podcast] Death, Sex, and Money: Getting Real About Getting Older – A really good conversation to have, and more so as we realize what is really important to us while having to physically and socially distance ourselves.
