Here are some things keeping my attention over the last month . Normally this is quite hard to do so these are the “cream of the crop” (a phrase I’ve never really understood, thus inverted commas).
I first heard of this book whilst reading an FHM magazine waiting in line for the hairdressers ( I know right ? – there was a line ). Anyway, FHM magazine had a little snippet on Cillian Murphy’s favourite books. I rather like Cillian Murphy’s face and so naturally I wanted to read all of what he was reading. This book was one of them.
If you’ve never been to the BFI Southbank, today and tomorrow would be a good time to go and see this documentary based on Franz Fanons’ book Wretched of the Earth. As far as I can tell, the last day to watch it is the 11th December and after that it’s 2001: Space Odyssey and trust me you don’t want to watch that. So go and see this instead.
I first heard this about 4 years ago and have been rediscovering the same albums over and over again. Not something I would describe as groundbreaking music but makes my mornings a little brighter , and I need all the help I can get with mornings so .. it’s good.
Also, for longer journeys I have just started with this..
I may have mentioned in other posts but This American Life is one of my favourite radio shows. I could listen to them talk all day without a single song being played in between.
Serial is a podcast where the writers unfold one nonfiction story over the course of a season. Each week gives out a new episode for , I’m guessing, as long as it takes until the writers get to the bottom of the story.
This season looks into the case of Hae Minn Lee who was (apparently) murdered by her boyfriend Adnan Syed in January 1999. I am one hour in and it’s getting interesting!

That’s all for now !
