[9/19] Recently Read, Watched, and Listened
The Disaster Tourist, by Yun Ko-Eun, translated by Lizzie Buehler - a quick but very good, entertaining, read.
Away (2020) - This falls apart (for me) in the first episode, when you quickly realize that there is a lot of drama for the sake of having a lot of drama. The conflicts are jammed in there, not coming naturally. I want it to be good because I like the actors but…. it’s a struggle to get through the episodes.
Parasite (2019) - There isn’t anything I don’t like about this. The writing, cinematography, acting, editing… everything is perfect.
This week’s rotation included Japanese Breakfast, Rainer Maria, Rage Against the Machine, Megadeth, and Incubus.
[Single] “South Gotta Change” by Adia Victoria - I like the rhythm and beat but like the lyrics even more.
[Podcast] Criminal: Kids on the Case - This whole episode gives me hope for youth in general, and for who these kids (in the episode) will become.
