Inspired by Gary Lum’s weekly post I thought I would start writing down what I’ve been up to, when I’m not travelling, other than work.
What photos have I taken?
I haven’t been out with my camera this week, but I do enjoy the Canberra sunsets during my evening constitutional #teamPixel
What have I been watching?
I finished She-Ra on Netflix early this week. The first season is only 13 episodes, so it didn’t take too long. It’s good. Better than average, and extremely watchable. I cared more about the characters by the end of it than most of the remaining characters in The Walking Dead, except Michonne.
There was a bit of an uptick partway through the most recent season of TWD, but it started to fall off a cliff, again.
I opened Amazon Prime Video on my TV and found they had The Night Manager. Mum had recommended I watch this ages ago, she’d even tried to give my standard-definition DVDs, but SD makes my eyes bleed.
It was one of the best things I have watched in the last year. A concise British thriller with Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie in dramatic roles, with correct accents. Highly recommended.
I’m still enjoying The Rookie. It falls into the category of ‘not Better Call Saul, or Breaking Bad, or Mr Robot, but enjoyable.’
I haven’t watched much Community this week, my usual before bed viewing to wind down. I’ve reached season 5, and it is not as strong as the first seasons. The first 3 or so seasons are some of the greatest comedy TV ever made, ever. But I think I am the target audience.
While the cricket was delayed in Adelaide by some reason I watched The Post. It was fine. Not the best movie, Spotlight as a movie in a newspaper office is better, but it was worth a stream, not a buy.
What have I been listening to?
What have I been playing?
Last weekend a few friends came over and we did our best to remain on speaking terms while playing Mario Kart on the Switch. We also completed 2 or 3 worlds in Kirby Star Allies. It was fun. A co-op game where we all had to work together to complete the levels. Super Smash Bros. arrived on Friday but I haven’t started it yet.
I’m still Pokemon Go-ing. I drove out last night across Canberra looking for a cubone. It took two lures and walking in circles for a while, but I managed to find one 🙂
My current favourite mobile game is holedown. I’m still chasing the bottom of the black hole.
