Interrobang - Press Play

This is the ninth piece for interrobang, ?!, our arts+culture+????? column. A film review was first, odes to joy: sanna wani second, odes to joy: alfabet/alphabet by s. de meijer third, followed by a thank you note to a transit bus driver, and aunt jay pitter fifth. Spent a little time with marginalia of books, The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee, Ways of Curating, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Obasan, Joy Kogawa.

Context: Part of a collection called odes of joy. Launching our first 'book' soon as well as a call for submissions, this is in anticipation of that.

Consider Listening to:

The Last Bird by Zoƫ Keating or, Boyz in the Wood by Restless Leg Syndrome.

By the deep sea, and music in its roar:

The brain, specifically mine, is doing some funky things lately. A long lately. I imagine I've made something like 75 playlists in my life? Maybe more, probably more. But a huge number of those since Fall 02021. Certain that I'll come back to writing about them but here are a few below.

Some food for your listens/hears:
