Even more Christmas #music that doesn't suck...
Seasonal Shift by Calexico https://casadecalexico.bandcamp.com/album/seasonal-shift
Some of the biggest killers begin with the letter "C" and they all seem to be related:
- Climate change
(I could also add Christian Conservatives, but that might get me in trouble.)
I stumbled upon the new series "The Wilds" by accident and am glad I did. It's like "Lost" meets "Lord of the Flies" with teenage girls. What's remarkable about it is the diverse cast. There are TWO Native American characters and their inclusion doesn't seem forced. With such little representation on screen, it's exciting to see rez kids integrated so naturally into a story with other youth (#Aspy, #BIPOC, #Muslim, #LGBTQ).

And how did I miss this cover of Leonard Cohen's song "Avalanche" by Aimee Mann? These lyrics always catch in my throat:
"You who wish to conquer pain, you must learn what makes me kind; the crumbs of love that you offer me, they're the crumbs I've left behind. Your pain is no credential here, it's just the shadow, shadow of my wound."
Beautiful piece for this Cohen-esque time. "Cruelty and chaos were the default settings against which moments of fleeting grace stood as contrast." A tragicomedy. https://pitchfork.com/features/overtones/how-leonard-cohen-haunted-the-trump-era/
I thought it was a cute movie. As long as you lower your expectations to the Christmas rom-com genre, you will enjoy it (#lgbtq or not). https://www.autostraddle.com/happiest-season-review-kristen-stewart-and-mackenzie-davis-are-an-instant-holigay-classic/
