What I'm reading: Kristin Hersh's memoir "Rat Girl." I'm also a distracted reader, but really that just means it takes me forever to get through any given book.

Also: An absurd amount of year-end lists.

What I'm listening to: Ecstatic International's "EP" Just some fantastic (and danceable) post-punk from DC.

What I'm watching: My wife bats about .150 when getting me to watch shows with her. She knocked it out of the park with Yellowstone, though. I'm all in.

Who said anything about finishing books? I just start lots of them. :)

I've heard so much about Yellowstone. Really need to give it a watch.

Console Wars. That sounds great and is on my Goodreads TR list!

What I'm reading (always 3 to 5 books I'm actively reading*) πŸ˜‰:

I recently finished reading "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" to one of my kids. That was fun; I almost felt like I was 13 again and reading The Hobbit for the first time!

For myself I'm currently only reading non-fiction, including a review book: "Inventor of the Future: The Visionary Life of Buckminster Fuller". However, not long ago I finished Four Past Midnight by Stephen King. I read it for The Langoliers. I thought that novella was great!

What I'm listening to. Well, this year I got into the rockin' grooves of Ghost. Much of Ghost' music reminds me 80's hard rock and metal groups I liked, including Scorpions and Accept! πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ🎸

What I'm watching: no series but having down time the past couple of days afforded me some time to watch a couple of movies: "The Highway Men (Netflix)" and "Sunshine (sci-fi, 2007). I thought the former was good and the latter, great!

Happy New Year!

*Most of my reading is via ebooks from the public library, I often don't finish in the three or four week time period, but I renew them or place holds. Unusually enough (for a Stephen King book) I was the only one checking out Four Past Midnight! 903 pages. πŸ˜‰

Hello Kyle! Hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday.

My friend turned me onto Ghost last year, they're great! Very reminiscent of the 80s rock scene. Are you a Greta Van Fleet fan by chance?
