Happy 2020 and Year of the Rat! I’m doing this list a little later in the month than usual. What have you been up to lately?
Reading: Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder by Caroline Fraser.
Audio: I just realized that WNYC’s “American Standards” has a streaming channel. How did I not know this?!
Video: Season 3 of The Crown. Some really outstanding actors in this season, including the ones who portray Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
I haven’t written anything over the past couple weeks, due to the gloomy weather, fatigue from a lingering sinus infection, and sadness over Gaia’s passing. So I’ll ease back into things with this monthly round-up. Feel free to share your own doings in the comments!
Reading: Debbie Harry’s memoir, Face It. Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women (for the first time in…a long time!).
Audio: Annie Lennox, A Christmas Cornucopia
Reading: Just started Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, because I’ve never read it and I’m preparing for a trip to Savannah.
Audio: I recently watched a documentary about the Laurel Canyon sound of the mid-60s. It was a mediocre sort of film, but now I’m listening to various bands from that era and remembering how much I love The Byrds.
Video: Waiting for The Irishman to come to Netflix…
