Not really listening to anything new, so instead enjoy this Christmas playlist that I’ve been making for the past 20 years!


  • It was a busy month with all the travel. We didn’t get to watch as much as we normally do
  • The kids and I traveled to Kentucky to meet cousin Lily for the first time
  • I also had a work trip to Savannah where I went on a Ghost Tour! and ate at an Edgar Allan Poe-themed bar!
  • Using the Dolphin emulator on an old MacBook Pro, I beat the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. I’ve queued up Twilight Princess, but we’ll see if I have the time in December to get very far
  • We’ve introduced How the Grinch Stole Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas to the kids. We subscribe to almost every streaming service out there and the Grinch isn’t on any of them! (So $10 was donated to the iTunes Movie Store in hopes of never having this issue again)

Finished in November:

Atlanta, Season 4: I was going to quip was “so there’s this condition, that’s human…”, but honestly that just doesn’t capture the breadth of what Glover was doing here. So instead, an observation: so much of this show is structured like horror and it’s very obvious as to why.

The Patient (Limited Series): The follow up from the showrunners of The Americans is exactly what you’d expect: a slow tightening of the screw until something has got to give. And then of course, one more turn for good measure.

Finished reading: Celebrities for Jesus by Katelyn Beaty 📚 While ostensibly about how the pursuit of fame hurts the church, you can pretty much sub in anything in place of “church”. The false intimacy promised by celebrity is a siren’s song

Finished reading: What We Owe the Future by William MacAskill 📚How do you appropriately weigh the needs of an entire population that doesn’t exist yet? MacAskill deftly digs through the layers and layers of ethics, philosophy, and practicality inherent to the topic

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story: can confirm, sufficiently weird
