Life Update: 7/25 – 7/31

This past week wasn’t bad–went to a wedding reception and the local farmer’s market, as well as Souplantation and a Thai restaurant–but it wasn’t very productive. Little bummed; if I’d only bought the SCBWI LA conference tickets as soon as I decided on going, I might’ve gone to that, but can’t win them all. You can lose them all, but you can’t win them all.

Oh, and I attended a limited release screening of BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE. I did enjoy it, mostly on the strength of the dialogue as a sensational showcase for Mark Hamill’s brilliance, though some inexplicable plot decisions and the even more baffling spotty quality of the animation were pretty disappointing.

BOOKS/MOVIES/MUSIC RECAP:

Read the soulful DEVIL AND THE BLUEBIRD by Jennifer Mason Black, a musical devil-at-the-crossroads YA that also touches movingly on the experience of LGBT and homeless youth. Also watched ROOM with Brie Larson.

It was a good week for music. New songs by Glass Animals, Springtime Carnivore, and Father John Misty. Also listened to some female R&B and “Telephone” by Mo Kenney. Also, the Hannah Montana Season 1 soundtrack. It’s catchy.
