Delivering Happiness, by Tony Hsieh. A re-read. There’s been a lot already written about his tragic death, his mental state, and other circumstances around it. It’s all very sad and a very stark reminder that some of the most creative and well-meaning people have demons that we will never really truly understand.
Star Trek: Discovery – currently at s3 e10. I want so much more of the main storyline and so much less of the Mirror Universe but, I will say that this was a good send off for Michelle Yeoh.
The Mandalorian – currently at s2 e8. That green lightsaber… when it appeared, goosebumps.
This week’s rotation included The Gauraldi Trio (the “A Charlie Brown Christmas” album), Rachael Yamagata, Rainer Maria, The Doors, and Depeche Mode.
[Single] “On Melancholy Hill” by Gorillaz – I’d sometimes play this track on the train ride home (while living in D.C.) as a way to unwind, which may or may not tell you something about my time there.
[Podcast] This Is love, Episode 30: Cheers – I remember seeing Gerald Stratford’s first viral tweet but didn’t opt in to follow his account. This conversation was very sweet; he is a very kind man. I’m now following him on Twitter.
[Podcast] Proof: Sizzler and the Search for the American Dream – Loved listening to Cecilia Have-Jin Lee and her siblings talk about their childhood, and learning about America through TV dinners and trips to Sizzler.
