Happy Weekend! What’s been keeping you busy? For me, it’s been shovelling – I skipped the workout entirely to get the driveway looking spick and span. It didn’t totally work but I’m feeling accomplished. Besides that, it’s just the usual fare. I’ve put together a list of things I’ve been watching, reading, listening to and more, below!
After many recommendations from friends, I took the plunge on HBO’s Search Party. How exactly to describe it – it’s kind of like modern day Nancy Drew, except with four very unlikeable main characters. The show stars Alia Shawkat, John Early, Meredith Hagner and John Reynolds as they search for their missing college acquaintance, Chantal. There are clues and conspiracies and very odd characters along the way. Each episode runs about 20 minutes so it’s easy to jump right in. Check it out on Crave.
I’ve got my nose in a book again and this week’s is, J. Bradford Hipps’ The Adventurist, which tells the story of Henry Hurt. Henry navigates a tricky corporate world as the head engineer of a tech company in financial trouble and tries to find love, all while grieving the unexpected loss of his mother. It’s a down to earth read with some funny commentaries on the American South. I like it because, while it is fictional, this could happen to anyone.
2021 has been a little slim on new music, so let’s support the artists who are doing the most and performing their lovely tunes! ELMNT FM Toronto’s afternoon host, Julian Taylor’s performs this weekend on Passim Streams as part of the Black History Month performance series. It’s free to attend. Check it out here.
Ready to go back in time? Nintendo Switch users can now access NES and Super Nintendo game mods, free of charge in the Nintendo eShop. You better believe I got really into NES Ice Hockey from 1988, and relived my childhood by playing the original Donkey Kong Country from 1994. Oh, nostalgia!
