I’m about to start The First Bad Man, but I’m waiting for a day when I can devote some serious time to it because I know I’ll just want to drop everything for it. I just started I’ll Meet You There and I already love it. And today I finished Show Your Work and I really enjoyed it. Austin Kleon went to Miami, so I feel that vague sense of pride you get when someone impressive shares your alma mater.
I mean, does anything other than the Sleater-Kinney album really matter right now? I listened to it tonight while baking cookies and H. asked, “Is this Taylor Swift?” because, well, I listen to a lot of T. Swift. I also really love this song by Tobias Jesso Jr. that Alex told me about because I have a TYPE when it comes to songs and everyone knows it. Oh, and I listened to that Sophia Grace song and got it stuck in my head for a week, but I’m going to spare you.
We saw Selma today. I haven’t seen any of the other Oscar nominees because I generally only watch a movie once it’s about 10 years old, but I can’t imagine any of them are as relevant to our world today. The signs the protesters were holding could’ve been signs from a current protest. It was a difficult movie to watch, but it was really beautiful and incredibly emotionally affecting. Also, as you probably know, Oprah is in it and I love everything Oprah’s ever done.
We also just finished the first season of Broad City (I know, I’m behind!) and I love Abbi + Ilana + Lincoln. We started Broadchurch yesterday and I think H. underestimated my feelings re: crime shows because now we are GOING to finish it this weekend.
All day, every day.
