Little Fish
I'm still a bit saturated after that End of Year "Film a Day" marathon. As a result, January has been a bit lean on that front. But the website is a certified vault (modest much)! Here's one from the archive.

Based on the sci-fi short by Aja Gabel, this right here is a remarkable love story that packs a punch – tender, bleak, tense yet brimming with the vivacity of life and the power of hope. ‘Little Fish’ is a provocative, impactful and deeply affecting film that will leave you in tatters as it reaches its climax – as much as it sets out to absolutely destroy you, by the end of it, it manages to put all those tiny little pieces together, lifts you up and makes you whole again.

"Emma and Jude, a married couple, find themselves torn apart when Jude gets afflicted by a virus that triggers memory loss. While she tries to come to terms with this, she also loses other loved ones."

The Three-Body Problem Trilogy
by Liu Cixin
Oh my my. Stay away from all the blurbs - they're all pathetic and will never be able to capture the marvellous essence of what "Three-Body" truly sets out to be. Liu's behemoth is probably the best work of hard sci-fi out there, that will genuinely blow your mind - and continue to do so after you turn that final page. This has to has to has to find place on your TBR this year!

"P.S. Weiss and Benioff are back with an adaptation in March folks. You've got a month and a half to get through the first book! Here's the Trailer."

Artist Highlight
Green Day
It's been a while since Green Day released something as monumental as "21st Century Breakdown", let alone "Dookie" or "American Idiot". With "SAVIORS" the band seems to have found a perfect blend of the aforementioned albums. From lung busting anthems to acoustic ballads, "SAVIORS" truly is a return to form and a thrilling, energising blast from the past!

Unless you've been living under a rock, there's no way this bad bunny has averted your attention. The AI Pocket Monster - Rabbit R1 - is some exciting tech, but this isn't what this post is about. From whimsical drool worthy Dieter Rams inspired products to other worldly field accessories. Enter Teenage Engineering.
