Side Notes December 20th

Updated: Dec 20, 2019

Side Notes is a weekly round up of everything and anything that catches our short attention span over the past week, coming to you live and direct every Friday.


Film

Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker

Apparently, it’s not that good. 2/3 of the Part Wild Collective are bang into Star Wars, I just kinda like it. The final instalment (until they decide to make more) is now out but now that the Star Wars universe is expanding it just doesn’t even seem as special to, even, me – the casual Star Wars fan.

Environment

Australia is on fire

Today it hit 49 degrees C and 2/3 of the country was over 40. Coal mines evacuated, homes being lost and the Koala population being wiped out. While in Australia, Fraser Island I believe, I learned that the indigenous method, still carried out to this day, is controlled burning of the bush so there isn’t fuel for the fire when the temperatures are high. Australia must soon become pro-active rather than needing this reactive way!

Pearl Jam - Live at Hyde Park July 10th 2020

Eddie Vedder celebrates his 55th birthday next week, and he still has the most beautiful, soul-shattering voice you’ll hear. Here’s a reminder, oh, and a little known band called The Pixies are supporting!

...and finally...

Merry Christmas from Part Wild
