Books:
- What Happened, by Hillary Clinton. I thought this was a fascinating book. a memoir of an interesting time (ha ha) from a person who was there, and some great policy and life prescriptions. Haters can step off.

Movies/TV:
- none

Music:
- Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Luciferian Towers. I'd never actually listened to the grand ancestors of post-rock before and yeah, they're everything I love and don't love about post-rock. I previewed the whole album on NPR streaming and I think I'm going to get it when it comes out.
- Cut Copy, Haiku From Zero. Liked this one so well with its lovely 80s sounds that I pre-ordered it before it was finished.

101 in 1001 report

immlass: (break the monotony)
Did not actually complete any tasks this time though I have a bunch that are coming due.

List is under the cut. )

While going to the state fair is still on my lifetime bucket list, it's clearly not happening this year, so it got punted (it looks like it'll be too late to fall within 1001 days for next year, though I'll laugh if we go in an off year). Because of health issues I'm pushing down on the number of reps I'm doing on those items. I'm generally moving slowly on all things except rpg-related ones, and I should probably switch an item to cover that. I also need to write about some things, not just because of the numbers but because I've got Harvey and other stuff I need to unload about and I haven't gotten to the place where I can write about them yet.

immlass: (clockwork owl)
Books:
- Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst, by Robert M. Sapolsky. Still poking at this but set it aside in favor of the other.
= What Happened, by Hillary Clinton. Amazing and heartbreaking so far.

Movies/TV:
- none

Music:
- Joseph Shabason, Aytche. Electronic jazz thingummy that will be good working music.
- Lal & Mike Waterson, Bright Phoebus. Seminal early 70s folk album I bought for Michael's sake. I'm not crazy about the Waterson vocal style and never have been, but the production on the reissue is nice.
