[10/17] Recently Read, Watched, and Listened


Still behind on my recreational reading. I spent the week doing a lot of research (and writing) for work. I did watch Alta’s California Book Club live stream with C Pam Zhang, author of How Much of These Hills is Gold (which I loved). It was a great all-around conversation about what goes into crafting a novel like that.


David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet – If there’s anyone who can give us a first-hand account of the impact we have made on Earth, it’s David Attenborough. Through his “Witness Statement” we get a very intimate illustration and plea to better educate and more responsibly act.

Fargo – currently at s4, e4. Still on episode 4 because we’re opting to wait for a few more episodes to queue up. The pacing is slow enough as is so, waiting a week between each episode is a little irritating. It definitely works better if we can bing a few at a time.

3rd Rock From the Sun – currently at s2 e16. Our weekly escape to silliness and laughter.


This week’s rotation included Flor De Toloache, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Peggy Gou, and Van Halen (R.I.P. EVH).

[Single] “Build a Fire”, by Patty Smyth – classic Patty Smyth and a perfect road trip track. 

[Podcast] The Dave Chang Show: Good Tortillas and California Politics: The Gustavo Arellano Experience – I like Dave Chang and Gustavo Arellano’s individual perspectives on food culture so, listening to them talk to each other about a range of topics was fascinating.
