Unfortunately nothing to report here for the week. The good news is that some new books arrived (in both physical copy and library ebook form) so there’s definitely some work that I need to do.
Star Trek: Discovery – completed season 3. This was a solid season finale. Fun and entertaining. I just wish that the stories leading up to it developed more over the course of the season. I do like this series 9though it may seem the opposite sometimes). I like the characters, too. I just wish the episodes and writing took different directions, especially with more focus on character development and taking the time to develop out more detail in the overall world building. We’re 900 years into the future from the rest of the Star Trek universe that we know! So much potential there! Discovery and her crew should be (IMHO) positioned more as a fish out of water rather than the single savior of the Federation and the universe.
This week’s rotation included Beirut, David Bowie, The Black Crowes, Prince, Ana Tijoux, The Coathangers, and The Notorious MSG.
[Single] “Temple” by Thao & The Get Down Stay Down – I think I’ve spotlighted this one before but yeah, it’s just that good. The lyrics… just, good.
[Podcast] Death, Sex, and Money “Just Ask Us: Your Stories About Life After 60” – I’m really appreciating the honesty in what is being shared. There’s a lot to lear here not only about aging but what is to be valued, what I real versus imagined, and how we can do a lot better to prepare ourselves (and those around us).
