This is out of topic, but I honestly didn’t know where to put it and I thought it was a good read to share. I tend to agree but I’m open to all opinions.
The problem of mindfulness: mindfulness promotes itself as value-neutral but it is loaded with (troubling) assumptions about the self and the cosmos

Overall, I think Peter Dinklage deserves one Emmy for what he’s done in the show. I wouldn’t award any other member of the cast, though I’d be okay with one or more nominations for Lena Headey and Diana Rigg. Maybe Charles Dance too. I don’t remember earlier seasons well so I prefer not to judge Sean Bean and Michelle Fairley’s performances.August 15, 2019 at 1:43 am #1203024716
I won’t believe it’s bad until I see it.August 14, 2019 at 8:48 am #1203023515
I enjoyed some of the songs, but overall as a complete album experience, it feels like something is missing when compared to 22, A Million.
Thanks for the feedback. I do agree that it’s inferior to 22, but only because that was a fantastic album. I think i, i sounds like a minor work in terms of creativity and audacity, but I also feel it (maybe for the same reason?) as very honest, perhaps his most honest effort so far.August 13, 2019 at 11:58 pm #1203023084

Thoughts on Bon Iver’s new album?August 10, 2019 at 4:45 am #1203018280
Thom Yorke has a better album than Suspiria, he has ANIMA. Thanks for the thread! I think this list has more to do with rock than with alternative album, but it’s a great start.August 8, 2019 at 2:39 am #1203015352
Antonio Banderas is wonderful in Pain and Glory indeed.August 6, 2019 at 12:50 pm #1203012854
So, second attempt to write this post. I just wanted to pop in to say that I’m finally watching the show, albeit inexplicably late since I was supposed to be one of the most excited fans around here. At least, I’m loving it as much as I hoped I would!
I agree that it’s light and entertaining, at least in a way; but I find it also sad and tragic at the bottom of it. All the characters or almost all of them appear pathetic to me; they have apparently comfortable lives but they struggle to find the meaning from them – sometimes they’re just too shallow, tragically and comically at the same time.
The show also feels as very “American” to me, right in its depiction of privileged people who can’t overcome a feeling of loneliness and emptiness; it reminds me of Hopper’s painting and Yates’ novels (although I’m definitely not an expert of this and my impression could just be wrong). It feels like a good and fresh example of this tradition.
So, what was everyone’s favourite episode and why? (Not too many spoilers please, I’ve seen the first five fragments)
