I’ve started this series that still doesn’t really have a name. The first post was called creative consumption and it began as a way of looking at what I’m consuming. Austin Kleon has a phase that he uses: “garbage in, garbage out” and so I guess I was wondering if it’s all garbage. Then the next post I titled watching/listening. That one was more of list and less judgmental. My list this time doesn’t have anything for listening so thus the title “lately.” :) So still no title or format for this blog series but I like the idea and I’m going to keep with it.
Mary Poppins Returns - loved it. We’ve been listening to the soundtrack and singing along and it makes me want to see the movie again.
A Series of Unfortunate Events - my kids LOVE this show. It’s one of those few shows that we all enjoy. I missed several episodes early on so I probably need to go back and rewatch the whole series.
Eighth Grade - I watched this while painting one day. How is this in the “comedy” category? I think it was the most uncomfortable movie I’ve ever watched. :|
Beautiful Boy - This was a beautiful book and an ok movie.
Golden Globes - I like watching the movie awards and so I’ll watch the Oscars too. I also like that Eli watches these with me. He knows so much more about the directors and the music and it’s just really fun to watch with him.
Chiefs football - of course! The fantasy football season is over but with the Chiefs in the playoffs, I still watch every NFL game. What an exciting season it’s been.
And my new addiction: Catan. Eli got this game for his birthday and it took about a week of playing it every night for him to lose interest. Thad and I are addicted. We have our own way of making it work for 2 players and we play every SINGLE evening.
I really this idea of choosing a musician to listen to for a week. I think I’m going to try that to get me listening more music and more variety. This week it’s Paul Simon.
