Geekosaur Weekly #8: Model Trains and Bluegrass

I’m here again with another Geekosaur Weekly! This is a shorter edition, due to a very busy week, and some elbow and wrist pain today. But there’s still good things to check here, so keep reading!

Music

Today we have some bluegrass with Aoife O’Donovan, Sarah Jarosz and Sara Watkins. I’m was only familiar with Sarah Jarosz, but I think this trio presentation was quite nice! Good vibes and relaxing for the weekend.


New Fiction Books [Feb. 2021]

I haven’t been buying so many books recently, which I see as a positive: I already have more books than I would need for this year, so there’s no point in spending money just to expand my library. Although it’s nice to do that, it adds some level of stress overall, as I see that huge (mostly virtual) pile of books I want to read and are there, just waiting for me. I recently wrote about ‘backlog vs collection’ in the most recent Geekosaur Weekly issue.

Anyway, I want to share of what I’ve got recently, fiction books only.

Vinyl Record Pre-Orders [Feb. 15 2020]

This year I decided to invest a bit ore in my record collection and gradually expand it. I’ve been spending less on Uber Eats, and directing some of that saved money on music. Still, this is not a big list, as I don’t pre-order much. Maybe I should? Considering the price usually goes up after release, it’s actually a good idea.
