Books that I was reading this week ~
Loonshots: How to nurture the crazy ideas that win wars, cure diseases and transform industries by Safi Bachall
39/50 books ~ 1 book ahead of the schedule. However, I dropped my challenge down by 100 books so am I really ahead of anything.
Other than that I haven’t really had the interest for reading lately. Which has also reflected heavily on my blog. It’s not that I don’t want to read but I can’t seem to pick a book up either. And then I don’t care that much what you guys have been reading either.
What else. It’s October! When did that happen. I love October though. You have Halloween, Pumpkin spice Latte, Octoberfest, leaves turn gold… a great time of the year.
I organized a meetup yesterday for Joker. What a phenomenal film! And spoiler alert! Phoenix did something unimaginable playing that part. It provoked so many thoughts. I thought of how we had this school stabbing in Kuopio couple of days back and everyone described the perp as quiet and gentlebut bullied throughout school. So it’s not that far off from reality. Before, I used to think that it must have been this single bad life event that finally caused Joker to go insane. But here, we it was one bad thing and these bad things just kept piling up. How fragile our system is and how fragile the people are. Also that this world is average at best and Gotham is less than average. Nothing works and of course people have a hard time navigating in this kind of a world. What a plot, the portrayal of what it’s like to go mad. So dark and very heartbreaking. I decided to go to see it again next week. If you only goes to movies once a year, this is the time.
How’s your week been?
