[11/28] Recently Read, Watched, and Listened


I finished Southland, by Nina Revoyr (from last week) and it was excellent.

The Moment it Clicks, by Joe McNally - Reread this as a refresher, paying more attention to the lighting techniques that he peppers throughout (that I glossed over the first time).


Fargo - currently at s4, e10. One of the better episodes of the season though, still just waiting for this arc to end. Visually, everything is still really stellar. It's just that I don't have any stake in any of the characters and the story feels simultaneously disjointed and cliché.

Star Trek: Discovery - currently at s3 e7. Tilly is a great character and all, and the crew has been through a lot, but I don't find it realistic that she would be chosen to be the ship's 2nd in command. As an Ensign. With little to no command training.  

The Mandalorian - currently at s2 e6. Yeah, that was good. Really good.


This week's rotation included David Bowie, AKMU, Tokimonsta, BoA, and Led Zeppelin.

[Single] "Blackstar" by David Bowie - I've been listening to his album a lot, this year. Every track is good as a stand-alone but, if there's any contemporary album that needs to be listened to as an entire album, it's this one.

[Podcast] The Walk-In, Episode 16: "The sky was the limit" with Toni Tipton-Martin - Elle Simone Scott is a great podcast host and each episode has taught me something very new. This was a great conversation between her and Toni Tipton-Martin.
