I knocked off one item this fortnight: I went to a pop-up shop! Which was very successful. I bought some things that worked for me and saw that one thing I wasn't sure about didn't.

List under the cut. )

I think one of the household repair items is going to be replacing some shades the cats have torn up. Sigh. Still working on other things and grinding away on those long-term items.

Books:
- none.

Movies/TV:
- Blade Runner 2049. Sequel to the original and better than it had any business being.
- Master Pancake Harr-athon Ford Fiesta. The clips were funny and I'm glad I did it but the Master Pancaked guys aren't as funny as my friends.

Music:
- The Budos Band, Burnt Offering. Another funky soundtrack to a movie I want to see.
- Carbon Leaf, Indian Summer Revisited & Nothing Rhymes with Woman. Bought these two live a while ago at a concert and I'm not sorry I did, but they're okay. I like their Celtic-tinged rock, but I feel like I've heard this a lot from other bands (cf Great Big Sea) with a stronger Celtic/trad influence and on the Celtic side, from actual hardcore trad people who know how to rock it up. Overall this is a band that's better live where their personality and the love of their fans shines through.
- Robert Smith, Telemann: Fantasias for Viola da Gamba. Solo viola da gamba. Really enjoyable early working music.

I never thought I'd find that icon this useful.

Books:
- Four Roads Cross by Max Gladstone. Another really really good book in this series. I'm now ready to jump to the new one.

Movies/TV:
- none

Music:
- Phantasm, Tye: Complete Consort Music. More Tudor-era court compositions for string consort. I feel like I'm eventually going to run out of new composers! I love music from this period and Dowland simply isn't enough.
- The Emily Askew Band, Alchemy and Ayreheart, Barley Moon. These two get a joint review because they're both very similar and really top notch: both focused on the blurring line between folk and early music and excellently performed. Ayreheart is Ronn McFarlane's group and Emily Askew's band is founded around an artist new to me, but I loved both these albums because they were tight and seriously played while bringing in the looseness of folk. It's the best possible combination of understanding the music technically and historically and having the looseness of live performance that doesn't always show up in the technical recitals on the early music circuit. More like this!
- Angela Hewitt, Scarlatti Sonatas, vol.2 I enjoyed the first one so much that I picked up the second as a pre-order. Same sprightly piano style.

Illness and drug side effects ruined most of the shows last month but I did get to see Ayreheart.

I think the only new ticket we bought was Black Violin; we're mostly settled for the near future since medical issues mean fewer shows for me right now. The upside is that I'm open to asking for seating accommodations for disability and that may mean some shows that I couldn't do otherwise will be possible.
