On the 90s, the 70s, and the New Hotness
A show I love to rewatch: Daniel Knauf's 'Carnivale.' Though the show only lasted 24 episodes, it provides a lot of rewatch value - you can discover new elements and details all the time. This is a very visual show and a layered show, with little exposition, meaning a lot of things that are never explicitly spelled out.
"Silo" on Apple TV+ is incredible right out of the gate.
Kate Hudson’s Penny Lane in “Almost Famous” is among my all-time favorite movie characters. Cameron Crowe's adventures with Rolling Stone, and his journey to make the film, are fascinating tales of hustle and heart.
Okay, gotta slam my High five for the Almost Famous reference. I also am the progeny of an estranged father. I mistakenly assumed my childhood connection to him through music,yep 70's, was the foundation of our one-sided relationship. But I digress... Almost Famous is a FANTASTIC FILM. I cannot explain how transformative this film was to my collegiate self. I love this movie and now have to show my kids to enrich their cinematic education. Thanks for the little push.
My favorite show to rewatch is The Good Place. My kids love it too! Also, Schitt’s Creek. (surprise! 😂)
I really like watching the seasons of the Office with Steve Carell. I’ve also watched Rick and Morty a couple of times. Pickle Rick episode at least 4 times. Oh Deadwood is a good one to watch again.
Reading: Forbidden beat by SW Lauden. Yes, still. Hoping to finally finish today.
Watching: My son's last season of club soccer before he graduates.
Listening: Last night, I listened to Jim Ruland read from his latest book. It was fantastic. Also spinning Beat Happening's "You Turn Me On" record.
I'm amazed there hasn't been a film about Oppenheimer until now. Can't wait for this upcoming trip to the Temple of Nolan (as my children put it). And yes, I'm equally excited for Dune Part II (I am a big fan of the book, and loved the last film).
Also, I rewatched Point Break recently, so I'm looking forward to the next part of your article. :)
