[12/12] Recently Read, Watched, and Listened
Minor Feelings, by Cathy Park Hong - The writer tells it like it is in a way that no other (that I have yet read) has, on behalf of Asian Americans and the issues and challenges that we face. I am still in awe, and plan to read this again.
Star Trek: Discovery - currently at s3 e9. “Georgiou has been snarling and sniping ever since, and while it always seems a bit weird that a fascist dictator who most definitely murdered people is hanging out with what are basically Science Care Bears, Yeoh is clearly enjoying herself, and it at least offered some tonal variation from the usual hugs-and-crying approach.” I loved this quote from the AV Club’s review of this episode.
The Mandalorian - currently at s2 e7. This episode was some great tension building (and sustaining) from start to end. It is interesting to think about elements of PTSD on all sides of the (Star) Wars.
This week’s rotation included Yo-Yo Ma, G.O.W.E., The Ahn Trio, Superorganism, and Rainer Maria.
[Single] "A Christmas Duel" by The Hives & Cyndi Lauper - A must listen each holiday season. Love this.
[Podcast] ZigZag S5 EP5: Changing Our Relationship to STUFF - it's both fascinating and ominous to consider how much stuff we generate and how much of it stays with us, even though we think we have gotten rid of it.
