Adrian’s Monday Starter : 33

What I’m reading : Ugh I haven’t read anything new this week except for a bit here and there which usually involves the newspaper (the print version). I’m also trying to finish the wonderful Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari. And the 2018 Ikea Catalog arrived in the mail! Oh my. I don’t buy anything. I just pour over it for hours.

What I’m listening to: Getting There | Tell Me Something I Don’t Know

What I’m watching: You Already Have Everything You Need

A quote I’m pondering on: Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. — Barack Obama

Go see: Valerian — I know that many people including my husband didn’t like this movie. But I’m ok with it. I can’t say I “loved” it. I enjoyed it and appreciated what Luc Besson was trying to achieve. It is visually indulgent and pretty to look at. But the narrative is a bit of a let down. If you forgive the movie for that then it’s an entertaining epic. Maybe if Luc Besson hadn’t created The 5th Element then this might be amazing and have a higher than 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
