It’s Favourites time! What did you get up to last month?
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a hilarious show chock-full of even better musical numbers. Here’s one of my favourites:
Aziz Ansari’s Master of None follows actor Dev Shah’s love life. Discussing race, gender, and the complexities of immigrating to America, Master of None is funny but thoughtful.
I wasn’t planning to enjoy Netflix’s reboot of Queer Eye. Ever since What Not To Wear folded in 2013, I was determined to not let any other makeover show take its place in my heart. But Queer Eye has beaten it fair and square. It has all the fun of a typical makeover show, with the added bonus of a charming, all-gay cast.
Ingrid Goes West is a weird, funny take on how Instagram affects us. The eponymous Ingrid is a young woman that obsesses over the lives of random, aspirational, avocado-eating ladies she finds on Instagram. Unsurprisingly, it all turns to shit. This movie was bonkers but also incredibly compelling. Go watch it!
I never thought a lengthy video of a man dismembering an entire tuna could be exciting. Yuji Haraguchi shows us how.
Kasey Golden draws all 150 pokemon from memory, in her own distinctive style.
Sacramento Koi made a documentary describing how they purchase koi from rural Japanese breeders.
Michelle Erickson, previous Ceramics Resident at the Victoria and Albert Museum, recreates an 18th century agateware teapot.
After about a year of skirting my mayoral duties, I finally came back to my town in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. The game is just as sweet and entertaining as I remembered. If you’re looking for a laid-back, slice-of-life game, this one’s for you.
Developer Hit-Point recently released Tabi Kaeru (Travel Frog). This precious game lets you pack your frog’s backpack with food and equipment as it travels across Japan. If you’re lucky, your frog will give you a lovely postcard, and some souvenirs to enjoy upon its return! Unfortunately, Tabi Kaeru is still entirely in Japanese, but you can find an English visual guide here.

Have a great March, everyone!
