Before the Coffee Gets Cold, by Toshikazu Kawaguchi – currently in progress. I don’t have fully formed opinions on this yet but, I do really like the writing style.
Big Mouth – currently at s4, e10. Like I said last week, this has it’s moments and some of the metaphors are really well done but, it (the raunchiness and overall schtick) got a little old for me after a while.
Parks and Recreation – currently at s5 e1. Just a fun rewatch to veg out to.
This week’s rotation included Black Prairie, Sharon Van Etten, Def Leppard, and David Bowie.
[Single] “Comeback Kid” by Sharon Van Etten – Her single “Seventeen” from the same album is amazing but, this track is a very close second for me. I like how dark it is.
[Podcast] KCRW Good Food: Wine, foraging, balut, Brazilian food – I learned a lot through the segment on balut. It was nice to hear someone talk about it without categorizing it as “gross”. But the best segment in this episode was “In the weeds” and listening to Chef Natalia Pereira. She speaks like she’s writing poetry. It was beautiful.
Note: I will be posting this monthly, on the last Saturday of the month, moving forward.
