Blankets: Recordings for the Illustrated Novel

Tracker's soundtrack for the graphic novel Blankets by Craig Thompson is one of my favourite albums to play in the background.

Music 2019.11.29-2019.12.05

This week I've been listening to albums with fantastic cover art, from some Matthew Sweet gems to some wonderful soundtracks.

Just Go Away

Unwoman has released a new covers EP, Just Go Away, with covers of David Bowie, Hole, Lana Del Rey and 4 others.

Run 2019.12.05

I had a slower run than normal, but was happy to get out two days in a row for the first time in too long.

Algiers – “Void”

It's always a thrill to get a new song from Algiers. The new single "Void" is fantastic and makes the promise of the new album There Is No Year in early 2020 even more enticing.

Run 2019.12.04

My run today was to another great Zombies, Run! mission, this one dealing with bees, grief and, of course, zombies.

Spitkiss is a game packed with whimsy and charm. It has simple mechanics but challenging game play and its framing story and visual flare are super endearing. The inclusion of polyamory and genderfluid themes is a wonderful aspect that enriches the game.

Spitkiss is a colorful and true one finger platformer that lets you enter into the lovely world of the Spitkissers, tiny creatures

Can’t help falling in love

I've loved Puuung's illustrations and animations for years, and was reminded of her second season of Love is in small things as episodes were updated to have Korean subtitles last night. The final three episodes of the season are particularly touching.

Run 2019.12.01

I fit in today's run around a grocery trip and got to experience a story featuring zombie nannies.

Stack Clean: Redline #3

I'm finally at the bottom of the stack of physical comic issues I had build up, and I have to say it's a relief. I'll be happy to go back to reading digital issues that I actually expect to enjoy.

Stack Clean: Savage Things #7

I wasn't sure what to expect from Savage Things, and was left cold by it. This issue, at least, is a fairly boring take on assassins trained from childhood to kill with plenty of tired tropes.

Music 2019.11.22-2019.11.28

This week I was listening to Cœur de pirate a lot. It's remarkable how well she is able to make incredibly fitting soundtracks like the one for Child of Light and super catchy pop songs.

Glow Christmas

Last night my family went to Glow Halifax, a Christmas experience at the Halifax Exhibition Centre. It was a lot of fun to see the light displays, hear live Christmas carols and take lots of photos with Celestine.

Library Socialism

Libraries are wholly wonderful projects and are models for how we could have access to most things we want and need.

Crash Test Dummies – Get You In the Morning

Every year around this time I start to listen to Crash Test Dummies more because the band produced my favourite Christmas album, Jingle All the Way... Ellen Reid was the unsung hero of the band, and the tracks where she sings lead are uniformly wonderful. "Get You In the Morning" is one track I keep returning to.

Run 2019.11.26

A recent update to Zombies, Run! seems to have introduced some awful bugs, so my run tonight was disjointed, with the app crashing mid-run, the tracking being off and my subscription being not honoured (leading to long ads each time I started or restarted the run).
