    I’m only up to episode 4 but I have really been enjoying this so far.

    So, the Hyundai commercial with Jason Bateman was pretty good, right?

    What books did you read in 2019?

    3. 1984 - George Orwell (Audiobook, read by Simon Prebble) It's hard to know where to start with this one, it certainly feels particularly poignant to experience the book for the first time with what's going on in the world right now. It's a depressing read and rarely does it seem that far fetched, which is the really scary part. I found the first half the most interesting, with all the world building and the plot moving along, while the second half is just relentlessly brutal, which makes sense, but man it's hard work. I hadn't realized quite how far the book has reached in to popular culture, things like the concept of room 101, I had no idea were from the book. It feels good to be slowly filling in the blanks of my huge back catalog. 4. Theft by Finding - David Sedaris (Audiobook, read by David Sedaris) This is my first David Sedaris book, although I'm quite familiar with his work having listened to him on various radio shows. t's probably a bit of a weird one to start with, as these are entries from his diaries, dating from 1977 to 2002. It starts kinda slow but as he starts to find his writing voice, it becomes a real joy to listen to and made all the better having him read it.

    Vegetarian / Vegan recipes

    Just one word of caution, the recipe says smoked paprika can be used instead of regular paprika, if you go that route, I would half the quantity used.

    Which classics have you still not seen?

    Have you posted your thoughts on Citizen Kane anywhere? Would be curious to hear what you think. I watched it for the first time earlier, in part due to this thread. I’m not sure what I think about the story, on the technical side I thought it was incredible and it’s beautifully shot. The last classic I watched for the first time was Casablanca and that really blew me away. I now consider it to be one of my favorite movies and not just in a ‘I can appreciate the impact it made when it came out’ kinda way. I was hoping CK would have the same impact and maybe it will in time or with a repeat viewing.

    What books did you read in 2019?

    3. The Time Machine - H.G. Wells (Audiobook, read by Kelsey Grammar) This was a freebie I picked up over Christmas in a promotion Apple was running. I was fan of the original movie when I was younger, or at least the opening 30 minutes or so, it got a bit too weird and creepy after that. Anyway, the book was enjoyable enough, I found the relationship between the Time Traveller and Weena a little odd to the point of being creepy and the story maybe lacks in subtlety, but it's a fun read all the same. The descriptions of the last days on earth were pretty cool and not something I recall being in the movie version.

    Speaking of mac n' cheese, I tried this variation the other day and it's really good. It's a dry mix which will keep, which you just combine with plant milk and it's ready by the time your pasta is cooked.
