Culture Creature: Gudetama, Ali Wong, West World and more


Here's some things I've been obsessing over/enjoying lately:

  • Have you seen this Gudetama game?! I'm obsessed with it and shake my head at how much time I waste tapping an illustrated egg on my phone screen. You should play it! Leave your ID number in the comments and I'll friend you!
  • I started listening to The Daily Zeitgeist upon a recommendation from a friend. It's a thoughtful and entertaining way to stay up to date on the news.
  • Stilling trying to catch up on West World and avoiding any spoilers!
  • I finished Terah Edun's Blades of Magic and I am already starting the next one in the series. I recommend it if you like strong female protagonists, magic and action.
  • I loled so hard at Ali Wong's latest stand-up special on Netflix, Baby CobraAll you mom's out there will love it, too.
  • And finally, I'm obsessed with this painting (to the left), "Mother and Child" by Xi Pan and wish I could find a way to buy a print from the artist.

Catching up on my shows

I need to catch up on my TV. Well, I guess I don’t need to, but I’d like to catch up. It gets tricky when you have a one year old running around and your TV tastes don’t always coincide with your significant other’s. We have the technical capabality to watch TV in two different rooms, but we only watch TV at night (and sometimes during nap time on the weekends), and with Lazy Baby still sleeping in our bedroom, the TV in there isn’t much of an option. With all that said, here’s what I’m trying to watch when I can these days.


Jessica Jones - Season 2

Started this when it came out, but Mr. LL lost interest (read fell asleep) in watching it. So, it’s taken a back burner until he gets deep into his online gaming and I can have the TV to myself.


Santa Clarita Diet - Season 2

Almost done with this one, actually. Mr. LL will watch it, fall asleep and I just keep watching. He doesn’t seem to mind…too much. ¬.¬


Handmaid's Tale - Season 2

I haven't even started this new season yet and I keep forgetting about it! Then someone at work will start talking about and I have to run from the room with my fingers in my ears, screaming to avoid spoilers.


Westworld - Season 2

Ok, this one we ARE watching as it comes out on the HBO Go app. So, at least there’s that (though, I’m a big fan of the binge watch and now loath waiting for new episodes).


Altered Carbon - Season 1

I talked about this show in a previous post, but I haven’t finished it. I need to do that and soon, please.

Aggretsuko  - Season 1

I also want to give this new show on Netflix a shot. Have you seen it yet?

That’s all that is on my list right now. What are you watching? Do you have any recommendations for me?
