I'm watching There Will Be Blood with my parents tomorrow night, I could watch it over and over again. They haven't seen it so I'm excited to watch it with them.
I'm trying to read Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. I've read the first four pages about 7 times, it keeps putting me to sleep so I have to read it all over again the next night then I fall asleep again!
My best mate Alice Ansara just made a beautiful but harrowing podcast series about the bushfires in Australia this summer, it's called From The Embers.
I've been listening to the very quiet Yawny Yawn by Bill Ryder Jones, Adalita by Adalita who is an Australian singer-songwriter, playing quite minimal electric guitar music with vocals, and then also Life Without Buildings has been pepping me up too, a Glasgow band from the early 21st century. Quite a lot of yelping. Probably very 'love it or hate it'. I think all these choices are 'love it or hate it' actually!
Maybe watching my boyfriend's film The Rover at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, being at that festival was so crazy and fun, I was very proud of him.
