Recently read, watched, and listened


It may sound weird but, I intentionally avoided reading a lot, this past week. I wanted to keep my mind clear and I wanted to keep myself from "hiding" behind books instead of getting out to enjoy my week off. While that didn't quite work out as planned, it was still quite nice (to be lazy).

I do have quite the reading list ready to go for 2019.


A Wrinkle in Time (2018) - Argh! It almost ruined the book for me, it was so bad. So bad that I added the book onto my reading list so that I can refresh how good the story really is. Such wasted talent (cast) and opportunity for this movie to be epic.

The spare time that we had, this week, we spent trying to clear some more recordings from the DVR. That experience just made me realize how bad the majority ofd television shows are. So many recycled storylines and cliches.


Bear Brook (podcast) - My wife and I listened to all of the episodes on our drive (from Sacramento to LA), on Christmas Eve. It's fascinating though, the "jumpy" timeline made it difficult for me to describe to others.
