My media consumption in March 2024

Here's the list of some of the media I consumed in March 2024. Mostly, it's films, books, articles, and videos.

  • Stop Filming Everything You Do For Social Media. The title says it all - don't sell your life off so cheaply to strangers and corporations.
  • 5 reasons why desktop Linux is finally growing in popularity.. Linux has been my choice of operating system for almost five years, and apparently it is slowly gaining more popularity. It's good.
  • Book Recommendations by famous people.
  • 30 Movies So Bad, They're Actually Really Good. Yeah, The Room is the legend!
  • Bayon - Stell dich mitten in den Regen. I like this song from Bayon, a prog rock band from DDR.

  • How Milosevic's Serbia Became A Fascist State by Branka Magas
    "In a manner similar to the Fascist regimes in Italy and Germany, Milosevic’s too resorted to expansionism as a means for its self-justification and perpetuation. Appropriately, he chose the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Kosovo to announce to a crowd of hundreds of thousands that “armed conflict was not excluded."
  • Why The World Isn't Fair: Yuval Noah Harari on AI, Ukraine, and Gaza.
    In the latest episode of the GZERO World Podcast, bestselling author and historian Yuval Noah Harari delves into the transformative power of storytelling, the existential challenges posed by AI, the critical geopolitical stakes of the Ukraine conflict, and the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian situation.
  • The Covenant. During the war in Afghanistan, a local interpreter risks his own life to carry an injured sergeant across miles of grueling terrain. Not a bad one. 7/10.
  • Jerry and Marge Go Large. I could have easily skipped this one, but didn't. 5/10.
  • Sorry We Missed You. Now, this is a powerful movie about people who just don't get a chance to have a normal life. 9/10.
  • Where Did the Monk’s Haircut Come From? A Look at the Rich and Contentious History of the Tonsure
    According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the tonsure (from the Latin verb for “to shear”) began as a “badge of slavery” among Greeks and Romans. It was adopted “on this very account” by early monastic orders, to mark the total surrender of the will.
  • Gran Torino. Clint Eastwood still going strong in this one. And the soundtrack is amazing. 8/10.
  • The Perfect Circle. This Bosnian film about the war during the 1990s is about an alcoholic Bosnian poet who sends his wife and daughter away from Sarajevo so they can avoid the troubles there. However, he is soon descended upon by a pair of orphaned brothers. The brothers have escaped a massacre in their own village and have come to the Bosnian capital in search of a long lost aunt. The poet befriends the boys and together they try to survive the horror of the siege of Sarajevo. Sad and important. 8/10.
  • I read the book Kunsten at græde i kor by Erling Jepsen.
