Maybe this is why we go to the movies, etc. What are you watching and reading these days? Or excited to see?
Thanks for reading. Connie on Ko-fi
[2-panel webcomic of a cartoon girl on a couch, cradling her heart like a child and saying, "Don't worry, I'll keep you safe from harm." The heading says, "Me, in real life." In contrast, the heading of the next scene reads, "Me, at the movies." The second panel is a drawing of the girl in a dramatic fantasy-action scene, hurling the heart directly into the mouth of a giant, menacing, fire-breathing dragon, with all her might. She yells out, "Take my money! Break my heart!! Make me FEEL SOMETHING!" Comic strip by Connie Sun, cartoonconnie, 2022.]
Police procedural mostly. NOVA, a science series on PBS. There is a real lack of dramatic films now.
Been re-watching a lot of old favourites on DVD, due to temperatures in excess of 107ºC. The Jane Austen film festival, round our way. Reading Asian classics in English, like The Story of Hong Gildong. Started Journey to the West but the translation I have is being very hard work. At night I find myself just re-reading the Phryne Fisher novels over and over.
Jane Austin always does it for me, whether it's reading the books, watching the mini-series versions on DVD, or listening to the audio books that are free online. (Karen Savage is my favorite reader.) Lately I've been reading Karen White books and watching the Upstairs Downstairs series on DVD. It's hot here in Texas, too, great weather for staying in!
I've been feeling the need to laugh lately.
I found an British game show "Would I Lie to You?". No prizes, just various Celebrities telling stories that may or may not be true. I find it hilarious.
Bookworm, my favourite reader is Nadia May. The first time I heard her read Austen I would have sworn it was Lauren Bacall.
Eric, we need laughter more than ever these days. I'll have to look that one up.
Thanks, Anna, I'll have to look for her. And thanks for spelling Austen right! The city south of me is spelled Austin, so I keep messing it up!
Just finished “Missing, Presumed” by Susie Steiner. Excellent.
