Today, with it being the second to last day of the month, I thought I’d look back at the month of February, in terms of what I read, (we) watched, and listened to this month. So here goes:
- Fortune Favors the Dead by Stephen Spotswood
- Stolen Focus: Why You Can’t Pay Attention–And How to Think Deeply Again by Johann Hari
- Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman
The best of the three was Stolen Focus, with the other two, okay, and I might or might not continue each series. They both were okay, but nothing I felt like I had to get the next one right now.
- Atlas of the Heart: Mapping Meaningful Connection and the Language of Human Experience by Brene Brown
- Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own by Eddie S. Glaude Jr.
- Atomic Lobster by Tim Dorsey
- The Afterparty (Apple)
- Animal House (DVD)
- CODA (Apple)
- Forgetting Sarah Marshall (rent)
- Ghosts (the British version) (BBCAmerica, HBO Max)
- I Am Not Your Negro (Hulu)
- I Love You, Man (rent)
- Old School (rent)
- The Righteous Gemstones (HBO Max)
- Somebody Somewhere (HBO Max) with
- The Seventh Seal (HBO Max, TCM)
- Tacoma FD (HBO Max, TruTV)
- The Tragedy of Macbeth (Apple)
All of the series, we’re in the middle of or at the beginning. The best two of the month were CODA, deservedly up for an Oscar, and I Love You, Man, which was, and is, a hidden comic gem with Jason Segel and Paul Rudd.
- Around the World in 80 Days
- The Good Place
Sometimes with so many other things we want to watch, there’s just not enough time and with these two, that’s the case. Kim already has seen The Good Place and said it’s really good, as have many of you. I’m just not “feeling” it, I guess. *another shrug emoji* Same for Around the World in 80 Days (which Kim hasn’t seen yet either). Maybe some day, but not right now.
- Once Twice Melody by Beach House
- Summer of Soul (…Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Various Artists
Out of the two, Summer of Soul is essential listening and is the documentary, essential viewing.
So to recap, my favorites from the month:
How was your February? What did you read, watch, and/or listen to? What were your favorites of the month?
