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:
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:
________ sehat/sante/: the freshest playlist
towards joburg sunrise: made as I cycled towards my South African broski for a sunrise bicycle ride and muslim homies meet-up
sehat ki taraf: translates to 'towards health'
un kiiiii taraf, sunnn get it: made for someone who does not know of Shad(rach) Kabango and his music or someone who knows it VERY well
vers abha: towards abha
de abha: away from abha
dutch haus: just thinking about de nederlands
skate routine: bits and pieces to loop for my eventual skat8r boi performance
phir milan ki taraf: towards reunion
towards anchors and roots: towards staying in one place
ramadan ki taraf: ramadan specific, sans lyrics
tsu tunkl: towards health for a dear friend
towards southern shores: Nova Scotia bb
meanwhile in n-ecosse: Still Nova Scotia, bb
anthems: ideally I listen to these every morning
Decatur, or, Round of Applause for Your Step-Mother!: cannot remember
