[9/12] Recently Read, Watched, and Listened

Recently Read

  • On Being a Photographer, by David Hurn - reread this. I needed a good reminder.
  • The Cold Vanish, by Jon Billman - the author writes with a lot of heart and genuine care about the missing and their families. This book has forever changed the way I see missing person stories.
  • Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now, by Jaron Lanier - Well-written and well-researched. I haven't made any concrete decisions but I do know that I want to reduce my presence, and time spent, on social media in the near future.

Recently Watched

  • Star Trek: Enterprise - completed the series rewatch after a long few months. This is my least favorite of the franchise spinoffs. It wasn’t all bad; there were a few good moments and episodes. Season 4 was, as most say, definitely better than the previous three. 
  • Yellowstone - caught up on all three seasons. I like a modern western so, generally, I liked this.
  • Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) - Nostalgia can only go so far. It cannot replace plot and character arcs.
  • Black Panther (2018) - RIP Mr. Boseman.
  • The Social Dilemma (2020) - I think it's important that we become more aware, and that social media companies become more transparent, in what these platforms do and how.

Recently Listened

  • This week's rotation included Crimson Apple, Caro Emerald, Japanese Breakfast, and Ana Tijoux.
  • [Single] "NO news on TV" by Noga Erez - sheltering at home? This is a good track for that.
  • [Podcast] Frontyard Politics - I love listening to the stories around urban farming and their juxtapositions (as both metaphors and actuals) with our culture and society.
