- First off, for anyone that can read Dutch: this blog post about the events in Cologne and the following controversy is well worth a read. Amelie has a valid point and the post has since been picked up by De Morgen.
- I finally got around to watching Control, the biography about Ian Curtis that came out in 2007. Definitely not a happy film as you can imagine, but as a Joy Division fan I'm glad I watched it.
- I also saw The True Cost, that documentary about the consequences of fast fashion you have undoubtedly heard about. It didn't necessarily teach me things I didn't already know, but it does give the victims of this industry a face and a voice and that's a very powerful thing. I would 100% recommend watching if you're into fashion. Afterwards I started reading into ethical fashion a bit more and I might do a post about it soon.
- After hearing so much about it I decided to kick off my 2016 reading challenge (with a target of 30 books) with The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I haven't been over the moon with the last couple of books I read in 2015, but this was compelling from the first couple of pages. I started reading without knowing what it was about and I really enjoyed it that way, so I won't summarize it. The only thing that I can say is that this is a good one!
- A couple of days ago Flume released a preview of his upcoming album Skin and it sounds even better than I expected. It's just short fragments of the tracks mixed together but I listened to it quite a few times already and I can't wait until the release.
