Added: A Tribe Called Quest

51. A Tribe Called Quest, We Got it From Here, Thank You 4 Your Service (2016) Seriously, has Tribe EVER put out a less-than-stellar album? This one just opens up with everything wrong with the world. There ain’t a space program for n*****s, so you stuck here. Yeah, basically. A line later, talking about our female President not […]

Added to the Music (continued) page: Run the Jewels

50. Run the Jewels, RTJ3 (2016) Just drop everything and listen to this. I’m late to the RtJ game, since I’ve been out of the states for a while and not really paying much attention to new music (she says as she adds entry #50 to her music recommendations page). But seriously, it’s hard to keep track […]

I tried Wild Fern’s Manuka Honey products

I am going to admit something: I’m not really one to pay attention to beauty products. I don’t read magazines and I don’t own a TV. There’s not a lot of advertising that reaches me lately, especially when you consider the language barrier: my Japanese sucks, so even the ads on the train don’t really […]

March 4: Stories of Your Life and Others

06. Stories of Your Life and Others, Ted Chiang (March 4) Remember that time when I wrote that I get impatient for movies to come out, so I go and read the book? Here’s another example of that. I was DYING to see Arrival. And it’s still not coming out here in Japan until MAY. MAY. I wrote […]

Feb 20: The Princess Diarist

05. The Princess Diarist, Carrie Fischer (Feb 20) After we finished Burial Rites, we really wanted to actually read something that we thought might be cheery. We never choose cheerful or irreverent things, but we thought this might be a good one. This one was ‘short’ by audiobook standards: only 5 hours! We did the entire thing […]

Feb 19: Burial Rites

04. Burial Rights, Hannah Kent (Feb 19) LOOK AT ALL THESE BOOKS! After we finished The Girl With All the Gifts, we had to listen to something else. So we chose this cheerful (true) story about the last woman to be put to death in Iceland. This story was beautifully written as well, in a more confessional […]

Feb 16: The God of Small Things

03. The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy (Feb 16) I most certainly did NOT read this entire book in one day while on my honeymoon. I had this one as an actual book and had been reading it for some time, while we listened to The Girl With All the Gifts together. I mentioned earlier that […]
