It’s been another hot minute but I’m back with an epic Commercial Break! In other words, I’m here to give a quick update on my boring life and list all the things I’ve seen and read. Honestly, it’s been so long (my fault completely) that I will most likely forget like half of what I’ve done. Which, considering the quarantine, isn’t much to begin with. Oh, the irony of life. Plus, while I’m writing this list, it’s like a sauna in my room due to the heatwave and my brain is no work no more. That being said, enjoy this crazy long Commercial Break!
Here’s a quick post for you all this Friday! Me, Sofia and Nik have finally gotten a sort of rhythm going and have put out the 80th episode of Across the Universe Podcast. It is about the end of the world, sort of, because that’s literally what’s happening around us. We recorded this a few weeks ago and it’s apparent that the situation has gotten worse. Despite of that, the lessons and reminders from this episode are still very much valid!
Way back in February, when I had a lot of time on my hands, I wrapped up January like a champ. Then, I sort of forgot about it and now I’m bringing the wrap up back. In other words, I’m wrapping up the entire month of June – from movies to shows to books to songs! With a bit of commentary on each of the things I saw, read and listened, and links to possible reviews and such. So take a look at everything I experienced in June, and apparently, there was a lot!
In this week’s Across the Universe podcast episode we discuss Summer blockbusters we are excited to see with Katy from Oh So Geeky. In theme with that, I’m bringing you five movies I most likely won’t see this summer. May it be uninteresting, may it be a genre I’m not spending my ticket money on, you name it. Sometimes movies simply don’t call out your name, and these five haven’t even whispered to me.
Having such a dejá vu moment with this week’s Thursday Movie Picks theme. The reason, back in December our Across the Universe Podcast topic was exactly the same – movies about movies. So I’m going to cheat a little and post the same list again. If you want to hear more of my thoughts, and find out what other’s picked, feel free to listen to the podcast.
Another month has passed, and I’m still trying to get my groove back. Somewhere back in February I lost it, and now March has passed – and I’m still a little lost. Let’s hope April brings a little clarity.
Yes, it is Tuesday. Yes, I usually post Commercial Breaks on Monday but not this week. Partly because I totally overbooked myself on Monday and didn’t have time. Also because I didn’t have anything to write yesterday, but now I do!
Last week, when I was back to work and had almost no time to prepare for this week’s post, I had a small panic in regards to the first Commercial Break of February. But then it hit me (thanks to Sofia’s monthly recap), that I could just look back at my very successful January, with all its 23 posts (a record of the last few years on this blog), and wrap it up nicely before I really kick my birthday month into gear.
Last week was weird, and by weird, I mean horrible and shit but wonderful at the same time. Lower back pain is no fun at all, and even while sitting and not moving much, it hurts and you are constantly feeling discomfort. Meanwhile though, I spent my days watching movies with Sam Rockwell, and doing some light-reading, so it was actually like an enjoyable discomfort..?
Last week was another successful blogging adventure, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I had a short work week, but I did have to do other work-related stuff on the weekend, so I still didn’t have much free time on my hands. That’s were my newly found organisational skills come in handy. Girl has been scheduling posts like a madwoman, and honestly, I’m more surprised that you are, that I have pulled it off for two weeks now. I’m surely going to mess up soon.
