The last two months have been a blur. Let me quickly summarize:
Top three things I read
How to Change Your Mind by Michael Pollan. This book made me want to do LSD. And if I do, I’ll now feel totally validated that there is a real, science-backed reason to do so.
Thick by Tressie McMillan Cottom. Smart, brutally honest, heartbreaking essays that will change your mind in some way or another.
The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas. An 8-book fantasy series that I flew through in the span of a month. It’s exciting, romantic, and thoughtful. Exactly what I wanted from a series about magic, evil kings, and epic quests.
Top three things I watched
Aniara. A bleak, all the way human answer to what could go wrong in space travel. You won’t be able to stop thinking about it.
Into the Inferno. Werner Herzog makes a documentary about volcanos. It’s exactly what you want it to be.
Billy on the Street. It just brings me so much joy.
Top three things I listened to
(Aside from PUP, because we already talked about that).
Alaskalaska – The Dots. So groovy and not like anything else I’ve heard before.
Elbow – Giants of All Sizes. This album transports me away every time I listen to it.
Velvet Negroni – Neon Brown. Chill and moody jams. The best soundtrack for a night alone at home.
