Because I haven't watched enough TV for my usual monthly list. Books to come.
  1. Bananya
    Static
    Completely bonkers 3 minute anime series about a group of cat/banana hybrids. I can't even explain how great this is. Streaming on Crunchyroll.
  2. Space Brothers
    Static
    After 99 episodes I am finally done! Though the manga is still going so hopefully they will make more. This tale of two brother astronauts is so affecting and is full of real life space training exercises in Japan, Russia and the US. Might make my top ten TV series ever. Streaming on Crunchyroll.
  3. Picross e6
    Static
    I love Picross and have zipped through most of the puzzles in a couple of weeks. I even finally enjoy Mega Picross where the numbers span two rows.
  4. Fugazi
    Static
    Dischord Records just put their entire catalogue up for streaming at Bandcamp. I still don't have a proper setup for listening to my vinyl records so this is great. Fugazi were pretty life-changing for me and all their albums still sound awesome.
  5. Sashiko
    Static
    As mentioned here: Adventures in hand sewing. I finished my bunny, almost finished a second kit and have my own design prepped.
  6. Fire TV stick
    Static
    I can watch BBC iPlayer on my TV! I know, I was living in the dark ages. I just rejoined Netflix and apparently it's been so long they gave me another free trial. So much to catch up on!
  7. Melon and Grape giant Pocky
    Static
    Why are these only available as giant sticks? They're so good and not artificial tasting
  8. Norimaki senbei
    Static
    I finished reviewing my last Japanese snack box and these were a great find. Nicely sticky and savoury with a good crunch. You can get them from japancentre.com
  9. My citrus plates from Paperchase
    Static
    It may not feel much like summer here but they're helping me pretend. (Potholders made by my mum!)
  10. The Waverley
    Static
    The last seagoing paddle steamer in the world stops at my town twice a week during the summer and everyone goes to watch it arrive. When it leaves everyone on and off board waves like it's the Titanic. It's the best.
