It’s been a while since I updated everyone on what I’m watching, reading, and listening to these days. It’s a semi-rip off of the the monthly updates from TCM that features upcoming book and movie releases and events.
Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of Joni Mitchell. Specifically, I’m commuting from work to all the studio albums of Joni Mitchell from 1967 to 1979. Her music makes for a great soundtrack for the homeward trek. Her music seems to fit all the grey wintry days we’ve been having lately.
I’m currently watching all the Marvel movies in chronological order, starting with Iron Man. I’m up to Captain America: Winter Soldier, which I saw in the theater back in the day. Sure, they’re popcorn movies with lots of action, but they’re really well made popcorn movies.
I’m also watching the new adaptation of All Creatures Great and Small. While the original series was practically perfect in just about every way, the new series is a worthy remake. You can tell they had a much bigger budget and better production, and I like the fact that the new James Herriot has a Scottish accent.
I’m reading The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins. It’s a prequel to The Hunger Games series, set in a sort of post-apocalyptic world where Big Brother government reigns supreme. I haven’t gotten very far, but I like it so far.
Hopefully, there will be another update in a month or two. Or three. You can never tell with me.
