A weird, short documentary about Korean street food – starring Hugh Jackman and a flirty mayonnaise-fancying Deborra-Lee Furness #yum #whaaat?
Anthony Bourdain visiting a (mostly) pre-gentrified Brunswick just shy of 10 years ago. Remember how cool that was, when he was in town? Him and Matt Preston on the tram?! There was so much BUZZ and excitement about his visit, at the time. This one is not chipper, granted, and might make you misty-eyed, but you also will be glad that you “knew” him – and happy that we got to experience the world through his eyes, I think.
Hope you are having a brilliant Saturday, so far. Have you noticed my new favourite word is “brilliant”? It is. Just so you know …
PS: I’m also watching these less short things –
- Season 2 of The Bold Type (I already watched Season 1). It’s heaps of fun. (I am watching on Hulu, before people ask!)
- Life In Pieces, which is funny and light – great if you just need to tune out and have a giggle.
- For something NOT funny, but in fact thought provoking, sad, important and powerful, you might consider Hannah Gadsby’s brilliant, heartbreaking Nanette on Netflix.
