CB: Rewind << January & Monthly Awards

Last week, when I was back to work and had almost no time to prepare for this week’s post, I had a small panic in regards to the first Commercial Break of February. But then it hit me (thanks to Sofia’s monthly recap), that I could just look back at my very successful January, with all its 23 posts (a record of the last few years on this blog), and wrap it up nicely before I really kick my birthday month into gear.

BlindSpot 2018, January: 2001: A Space Odyssey

When I set myself the task to watch 2001: A Space Odyssey, I knew I was going to be conflicted with my thoughts. There’s just something about classics that always rubs me the wrong way, yet, at the same time, I do see the beauty and sophistication in them beyond the images on screen.
