LISTENING
_

album Taylor Swift - folklore
A nice surprise!
album The 1975 - Notes on a Conditional Form
There’s no good reason an album can meander this much and still work in a single listen.
album Fiona Apple - Fetch the Bolt Cutters
Another surprise. Unrelated, I can't decide if I’m sad Fiona doesn't have a personal website or not.
album Harry Styles - Fine Line
My friend insisted I listen to this on her record player and dang if I'm now listening to it all the time.
album This tiny icon is for singles. I’m currently listening to Lebanon by J.S. Ondara on repeat
album Taylor Swift - Lover
I listened to this more than any other album in 2019
album Vampire Weekend - Father of the Bride
This one goes in a few more directions and I quite like it
album Decemberists - I’ll Be Your Girl
I really like where they went with this record. It breaks from their mold in just the right ways
album Vulfpeck - Hill Climber
I learned about this band because they have a typeface
album Tame Impala - Currents
This feels like lots of other things from the past blended together and tweaked through dreamy filters, and I'm more than ok with that
album Whenever I start to cook, I usually put on this mix called “Cocktails” Spotify


READING
_
book Shit, Actually
Lindy West
I super loved Lindy’s memoir Shrill.
book A Very Punchable Face
Colin Jost
Speaking of memoirs, this ones breezy and funny.
book Station Eleven
Emily St. John Mandel
I can’t remeber reading a book so quickly. Suprisingly uplifting considering the topic (an epidemic that wipes out 99%+ of the world)
book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
John Berendt
Dunno why I wanted to read this, but I know it is a favorite book of Casey’s. Thoroughly enjoyable. Makes me long to travel again, then again, so does everything.
book Stillness is the Key
Ryan Holiday
You know when you dog ear a page to come back to it? I’ve done this to every other page in this book. (Finished it, dug it)
book Creativity Inc
Ed Catmull
In the midst of this on the recommendation from a client. Enjoying very much so far


PLAYING
_

game Crash Bandicoot 4 PS4
Better than I could have imagined. There are enough updates to the game structure (and graphics) to make this outing a sheer delight.
game Ori and the Will of the Wisps Switch
Recently launched on the Switch. They reimagine many of the controls of the first game, but once they lock in. it’s sweeeeeet.
game Control PS4
Excellent third person action game, increidbly cinematic, story was fine, but the evolution of abilities is top notch. Took a while to finish, and though the story is weak, the mechanics and presentation are above average.
game The Last of Us Parts I & II PS4
I had put the first title down a quarter way through because I was stuck. But when the second part was ready to drop I finished it. Very few times have video games made an imprint as much as these combined stories. These games are hard, emotionally. But oh so worth it.
game Ori and the Blind Forest Switch
This Microsoft Studio game almost got me to buy an Xbox 5 years ago. It came out on Nintendo Switch last year and I didn’t know. It’s very Hollow Knight, but prettier.
game The Way of the Turtle Apple Arcade
Simple platformer, kid friendly, kinda mellow. Dig it.
game Dead Cells Switch
Also Metroidy, but leans Castlevania witha touch of Gauntlet thrown in and so much more.
game Hollow Knight Switch
Very Metroidy, or as they call this type of side scrolling game, Metroidvania. SUPER ENJOYED, until it got too hard and then I stopped playing. Still worth it.
game God of War 2018
Incredibly solid reboot (?) of the old PlayStation series. Could've been longer, but escalates and flows wonderfully.
game Super Mario Odyssey
I finished this and moved on, but it was a fun ride.
game Two Dots
After reading all the year end praise, I picked up a used copy and am preparing myself to get freaked out. (iOS)
game Limbo
I still haven't finished this game, but I keep coming back to it. (Multiplatform)
