David Bowie Memorial

I was devastated to learn of David Bowie’s death a week ago. In the meantime, I’ve been watching lots of his videos on YouTube, and listening to his albums, starting with the oldest one, on Spotify. Here’s a collection of links found/shared on FB.

Orphan Black (TV)

Orphan Black – Season 2 – Great show. Very complex story. The lead actress, Tatiana Maslany does a superb job as all the various clones. Each one is very distinct. In the second season we meet new clones, learn more about the Proletheans and the Dyad Institute, and end it with a whole new list of questions. As any good show with a central theme of mysteries, conspiracies, and murder should.

Online Class

I’ve taken this free online class. It was fun and it’s active again now for new students. I’ll bet I know a few people here who will enjoy it.
