[10/17] Recently Read, Watched, and Listened
Still behind on my recreational reading. I spent the week doing a lot of research (and writing) for work. I did watch Alta's California Book Club live stream with C Pam Zhang, author of How Much of These Hills is Gold (which I loved). It was a great all-around conversation about what goes into crafting a novel like that.
David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet - If there's anyone who can give us a first-hand account of the impact we have made on Earth, it's David Attenborough. Through his “Witness Statement” we get a very intimate illustration and plea to better educate and more responsibly act.
Fargo - currently at s4, e4. Still on episode 4 because we're opting to wait for a few more episodes to queue up. The pacing is slow enough as is so, waiting a week between each episode is a little irritating. It definitely works better if we can bing a few at a time.
3rd Rock From the Sun - currently at s2 e16. Our weekly escape to silliness and laughter.
This week's rotation included Flor De Toloache, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Peggy Gou, and Van Halen (R.I.P. EVH).
[Single] “Build a Fire”, by Patty Smyth - classic Patty Smyth and a perfect road trip track.
[Podcast] The Dave Chang Show: Good Tortillas and California Politics: The Gustavo Arellano Experience - I like Dave Chang and Gustavo Arellano's individual perspectives on food culture so, listening to them talk to each other about a range of topics was fascinating.
