Happy Friday! It looks to be a rainy weekend ahead. What are you up to? I have some ideas to keep you busy!
Another day, another crime doc! This week I checked out The Ripper, which follows the story of the Yorkshire Ripper, a serial killer that terrorized the UK between 1975 and 1980. Not only is the story compelling, but it offers a real look at the ego and arrogance within the police force. It really got to me, it had me shouting and clapping at certain parts. Check out the four-part mini-series on Netflix.
When I’m feeling a lot of ways, which has been the case during this stay-at-home order, I read Haruki Murakami’s, Sputnik Sweetheart. It is the story of a young teacher who searches for a girl named Sumire, who he never confessed his love to years before, after she goes missing in Greece. It’s a surreal tale with stunning imagery, albeit quite sad. It’s a favourite of mine.
Billie Eilish dropped a new single called “Your Power” last week and it is everything! The song is a bit of a departure from her usual arrangements, with an acoustic melody threaded through it. The message is very blatantly about abusers who take advantage of underage women, making it a poignant topic in 2021. It’s the first tune off her upcoming album, Happier Than Ever, which is out July 30th.
I learned that garden centres are considered essential, so I made a stop there recently. I picked up some potted plants and soil to add some colour to my patio garden. I’m excited to keep it going this summer!
