It really bothers me that I don’t have anything to add here. Definitely something to remedy for next week.
The Mitchells vs. The Machines (2021) – This was a very fun and funny movie with a unique animation style (brought to us by the same animators behind Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse). While there isn’t anything new or groundbreaking with the story or plot, I loved that the overall message of embracing the “weirdness” that all of us have.
Star Trek: The One With the whales – kidding, of course. The Voyage Home is one of my favorites because it’s light-hearted and funny, letting us see favorite characters in a more relaxed and casual state. I fully enjoyed this rewatch, which also occurred mid-week and was a nice break from, well… reality.
This week’s rotation included Amy Winehouse, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Tank and the Bangas, Japanese Breakfast, Mitski, and Rachael Yamagata.
[Single] Crashing Into Daylight, by Hiperson – I keep coming back to this and eventually bought the album, “Bildungsroman”. I like it, even though I have no idea what is being sung (I’m getting mixed results when trying to translate the lyrics). You can stream the album on Youtube. It’s really good.
[Podcast] Hidden Brain: The Fake Bride – this story is f*cked up.
