What have you been watching lately?
Abstract: The Art of Design-- Wow. This is such a great show!! It highlights so many influential people. From Tinker Hatfield at Nike to Bjarke Ingels the world renown architect. I love seeing into the life and ideas behind so many interesting people.
60s and 70s--- Produced by Tom Hanks, this series had 5 stars for good reason. From the very first episode, I was hooked. Each episode of the show highlights an idea all the way through the decade. From the British Invasion, to Watergate, it pulls news clips and commentary from people who lived and experienced America. It is a unique perspective on history, that wasn't really taught in school. It is a compelling show, I would encourage anyone to give it a watch.
Minimalism-- This documentary will make you want to clean out your entire house and get rid of all the clutter. It is a unique way of thinking and I love the simplicity of it. My house is currently stuffed so full of chachkies and keepsakes, that its like an 80 year old grandma has been living here for 50 years. I love the idea of refining down your belongings to just what is necessary in order to find peace and calm.
Bright Lights, Brilliant Minds--This was an amazing series. It highlights the brilliance of 3 cities in three exceptional years, focusing on the minds of artists, writers, musicians and thinkers responsible for earth shattering discoveries. I kind of want to watch it again, and I hope they make another season.
The Little Prince--This was recommended by a student. She told me she watched it 3 times in one weekend. It was so sweet and a beautiful animation. I watched it with my husband and my niece and they both loved it too!!
The 13th-- Gosh. This is an enlightening documentary on the U. S. prison system. As much as I want a safe place to live and we've been bred to believe that 'lock up' is the best solution for crime....I wonder if some people are imprisoned unfairly.
This is my 'slice of life' blog.
