This was a excellent production. It called to mind some of the ideas discussed in The Lady Vanishes on Revisionist History as well as all nationalist rhetoric in the US surrounding WW II that I learned watching Oliver Stone's fantastic documentary on Netflix.

There really is nothing simple about the human mind. We all have our filters through which we observe and interact with the world. But, I can't help being sad at how blind we choose to be at the most basic of truths.
What did the Trump campaign, and the voters it mobilized, have in common with Fascism, not only in Europe but in America's own dark past?

I'm a new fan to the TV show Shameless, and I just love this show inspite of myself. It is aptly named, but I can't help feeling emotionally attached to the characters while laughing and shaking my head at them. S1 E8 had me dying as Frank tried to steal from a blind man, and in the same episode the whole neighborhood empties a meat truck of its contents. This show is hilarious.

Love this song!!! It's the song you need on the last lap of a run, to draw out that last ounce of energy and feel like a star athlete as you pound the pavement. Or, at the gym doing deadlifts. It's on my coding playlist, it's gotten through one of those Murphy's law days.

Okay, one more listen then I'll stop.

I finally started reading Harry Potter. Yes, its like I've been living on another planet not to have read them by now. I bought all the books one after the other for my youngest brother to encourage his reading at the height of the Harry Potter fever, and I'm happy to say it worked. He's an avid reader now, though mostly of fantasy fiction and manga.

I was on a cruise recently (my first) on the Norwegian Escape out of Miami, and one of the many games organized was a Harry Potter trivia game. And I realized that not only did I not finish watching the series, I also couldn't remember enough to score even 10 points on the quiz. So, I've been rectifying the situation and dusted off my Kindle DX and am reading my way through the series.

I'm actually already on Book 3 :)

I discovered Revisionist History after watching a recent interview Malcolm Gladwell gave on CBC regarding the possible outcome of the US elections, and I wanted to listen to the first episode of his podcast to learn more. I've really really enjoyed listening to all of Season 1... there are really fantastic perspectives that look deeper into issues that touch our lives in one way or the other. I'm so glad I stumbled on this podcast. This episode was especially thought provoking for me. We like to throw around the word sacrifice to feel good about ourselves, and listening to the kind of serious circumstances where the word really applies kind of put me to shame.

Listening to this interview made me miss Canada big time. With the news cycles in the US constantly drawing battle lines between Blacks vs. Cops, Trump vs. Muslim immigrants, Democrats vs. Republicans, I realize how lucky I am to have immigrated to Canada when I did, where our current Minister of National Defense is a practicing Sikh.

I remember listening to the last part of the interview on CBC about these events a couple of months ago. This article is a fascinating and amazing read.
