Yeah, she likes the concrete. I'm not too crazy about it either. She's influenced by Tadao Ando, and he's pretty big on concrete.

Nice retro fridge and stereo. And the concrete walls? Can't say I'm crazy about those due the sound reflectivity and the fact that they're cold and boring to look at. However, they will come in handy should the Big One (tm) get loose again. :)

Dunno ... concrete countertops were the rage here a couple of years ago. Sorta like the look.

After they've been polished and sealed? Otherwise they're a porous mess of caves just waiting for salmonella and friends to infect your food.

Yeah, it can be polished and/or sealed.

I guess some people like the look. I've seen it used a lot in recent years in retail spaces.

Now watching "Fortitude". Set in Svalbard. Think Bruce is in it. Detailed plot, weird stuff, mystery, opening had a guy being eaten by a polar bear, so you know it's good. Stanley Tucci is in it. And this guy.

Very interesting!

Not on Amazon over here yet.

I finished Sex Education (decent light fare) and started a new Ricky Gervais show called After Life (not sure yet, but kinda boring so far).

Started re-watching Brideshead Revisited. I forgot how well done it was. Not the remake, the original w/ Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons.

Definitely ruining my fantasy of running away a retiring in Svalbard. I'm a little surprised they haven't brought up the world famous seed repository in Svalbard. Guess that's not as exciting as murder and madness.

Watched the first three episodes of Umbrella Academy. It really is a much better type of Watchmen. More redeemable characters and less giant blue penises. They are definitely raising too many questions and not answering them fast enough.

My favorite characters are the corporate time travelling assassins who keep having their benefits and wages cut for not finishing their jobs on time. Cracks me up.

You have no idea where this show is going in the second season, assuming you have finished the first.
