Some light packing before we move on…

Most important book I read this year:

Despite the fact I’m still reading it, The New Jim Crow is my filter for everything 2020. It feels like homework though…Black Homework.

The book I should be talking about here is The Nickel Boys. Another time…

My adventures in viewing and listening..

For the record:

Last.fm album plays 2020

I was particularly obsessed with the work of Abel Ferrara, specifically his movies with Willem Dafoe. That then morphed into a mild fixation on Dafoe’s work.

I finally started to explore the Studio Ghibli library. That was a wonderful way to spend time with my daughter.

For the record:

Letterboxd Highlights 2020

Like most everyone else, I found it necessary to distract myself with endless hours of television. That will be corrected.

I May Destroy You had the most impact on me, and is the one show that I will carry with me into the future.

I also can’t stop thinking about Ted Lasso.

I don’t have time for distractions. I’ve got too much to get done…

Adios, see you down the road.

I did a thing…

This Morning’s Unwanted Mental Wake Up Broadcast…

Show me the way to the next whiskey bar…

Great Dune trailer…

but this is the one that knocked my socks off…

Word of the week…

phenomenology – noun
The study of the development of human consciousness and self-awareness as a preface to or a part of philosophy.

As in: “The Tree of Life is peak Malick phenomenology.”
