Mildred Pierce, Galaxy Quest, Toucher le ciel

I can never be accused of lacking variety.

And yes, I watched these in this order but over the course of several days. It made sense at the time, but looking at them now, my head hurts. No wonder I’m crazy.

Swimming_in_the_Monsoon_Sea_selvaduraiA book we read in one of my classes. A well-done young adult novel that went over well but sent the message, “This class is a blow-off.” Basic teaching double-bind: make it challenging and students won’t do anything; make it easy and they won’t do anything. The choice is really between complaints or contempt.

This novel is good enough to stand up to a tougher analysis than I required. So it’s worth another shot perhaps.
