This new iPad Pro ad on Instagram just makes me wish Apple made a new iPod nano.

The Devil and Daniel Johnston – ★★★★

The Devil and Daniel Johnston

As a UT graduate, I of course knew of Daniel Johnston and saw his “Hi, how are you” on Guadalupe multiple times per week when in school. I knew he was an artist and a musician and I knew he struggled with mental illness, but had no idea just to the incredible details of all three of those facets of his life.

A heartbreaking story I should have watched years ago.

Rating: 4 stars

A Wrinkle in Time – ★★½

A Wrinkle in Time

I always thought this was one of my favorite books as a kid but I’ve now given it multiple tries as an adult and I just don’t like it much at all.

I have specific fond memories of The Chronicles of Narnia but none really of Wrinkle in Time. I’m starting to wonder if I actually liked it when I was a kid or maybe something about it doesn’t just work for me anymore.

Rating: 2.5 stars

What If…?: Season 2 – ★★★½

What If…?: Season 2

Not quite as good as Season 1 and didn’t quite stick the landing after the great Kahorri and the 1602 episodes, but still a fun mix of stories with some good through lines. Looking forward to Marvel pulling Kahorri into some other MCU stories/movies.

Rating: 3.5 stars

Foundation: Season 1 – ★★★★★

Foundation

Loved this. Not the fastest pace show but loved every episode and binged all 10 episodes in 3 days. Even stayed up late two nights which is super rare for me these days. Enjoyed the world building, character development, and the story reveals as well. Looking forward to Season 2 and also added Foundation and a bunch of other Asimov to my Goodreads backlog as well.

Rating: 5 stars
