August 2017

I spent August working on weeding my book collection at home, so this month is short on things that I liked. I got rid of two dozen books and still have stacks of books that don’t fit on the shelves.

This didn’t stop me from buying a new stack or rescuing 20 novels during Allston Christmas. Send help.

Books

Killing Rage by bell hooks
This one is going to get its own post. Required reading for anyone that wonders where all of this talk of white supremacy is coming from. Spoiler: It’s not new. It never went away.

Podcasts

Episode 73: Carry A. Nation by Criminal
I never learned about prohibition in the proper context. I was taught about little old lady prudes, not about women trying to fix a societal problem with men and improve the lives of women.

The Boom Boom Room by Ear Hustle
Ear Hustle is a podcast produced by men incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison. This episode stands alone well as look into marriage and intimacy in prison. You should go listen to everything they’ve produced, though.

The Black Tapes Podcast by Pacific Northwest Stories
The Season 3 premiere was underwhelming BUT Season 1 will forever live in my spooky little heart.

Music

Rainbow by Kesha
Have I mentioned that I love Kesha?

Melodrama by Lorde


I’m selling my soul to these acoustic videos.
