Still living and having fun in lovely Berlin, our fifth year ongoing. Work-wise, being in the right place at the right time in samedi. Kiddo 👧🏼 turned 4 this year (when did that happen? 🤯) and second one 👶🏼 is on its way (40% ready).

Similarly to “The Broken Earth Series” I read prior (which I cannot recommend enough), I had this one on my reading list for quite some time now. It’s not as lightly consumed as it was with N. K.

It’s non-violent, heartwarming and beautifully drawn story and you can catch it on Netflix 🍿
Lao Che is definitely my favourite polish band. Ever since I listened to Powstanie Warszawskie for the first time I knew that it’s something very special. This LP is still among my all time favourites and I think it’s still number one for me from their discography. That said, their next albums, and especially Gospel and Dzieciom, are all very high in my regard. Song of the month is definitely “Nie Raj” from their newest LP (Wiedza o Społeczeństwie). More…
