  • Still playing Zelda. Still just messing around and not really trying to beat it.
  • I’ve been listening to Maggie Rogers latest album on near repeat for the past month. The first album was good, but this one is great
  • Alamo Drafthouse is running a second-month-free deal for their Season pass (i.e. their version of MoviePass). We got it for the next two months to knock out all the summer movies!

Finished in June:

Silo, Season 1: I’m thrilled that TV has found its way back to high-concept SciFi. Severance and Silo are worthy successors to Lost

Mrs. Davis, Season 1: There’s so many ideas here that range from current events (AI) to all-time philosophical questions (Christianity’s effect on society) to the intimately personal (what do our parents owe us?). Packaged in the most absurd way possible. My score: seven falafels out of five stars

I Think You Should Leave, Season 3: in a world that’s becoming less and less comprehensible, this is the only show that makes sense

Ted Lasso, Season 3: the show still hits all the beats you want, but with more seams showing. A strength has always been making these characters feel real. But this season (especially for Keeley), they sometimes felt like pieces on a chess board: positioning them for some move later on in the season
