Stay Home Club with Jill Kennedy: February 15-21

Happy weekend! With restrictions still in place, maybe you are looking for something new to spruce up your time spent at home. I’ve got some ideas for you below! 

[Listening] 

Thanks to a recommendation from our sister station, 95.7 ELMNT’s, station manager and afternoon news journalist, Matthew Bisson, I’ve been loving the new Arlo Parks record, Collapsed in Sunbeams! It’s vibe-y and sad, which are all the things I look for in music, truthfully. 2021 has had a slow start for releases, but I think this one is high up on my list. Check it out!  

[Watching] 

Ever let Netflix tell you what to watch next? They have a new random TV show or movie generator for those of us who can’t decide on something. So, I tried it out, instead of spending 20 minutes humming and hawing. Surprise, surprise, they chose a show for me that they have been heavily promoting – Superstore! It’s kinda like The Office, except in a giant department store called Cloud 9, with colours very similar to another big box store you might recognize. Starring America Ferrera, Ben Feldman and Mark McKinney, it offers a behind-the-scenes look into the department store and its workers. In a word, it’s hilarious! The episodes are short at 20-ish minutes and the plot is always fun and strange, but sometimes even a little dark. It’s easy to sink into the Cloud 9 universe. 

[Reading] 

Lisa Jewell is always putting out captivating thrillers, so I thought I’d pick up her 2020 release, Invisible Girl. It follows the intertwining lives of the Fours family, a young girl named Saffyre and a suspected sexual predator, Owen Pick. It promises lots of twists and turns and a great deal of trickery, which I feel like I’ve already succumbed to so far. I’d definitely recommend it! 

[Spending Time] 

Ubisoft released a Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune game simulator! Instead of watching these beloved gameshows, you can play them yourself with your family or a computer player. It’s another one of those frustrating yet obsessive games. I’m so tired of going bankrupt, but I love solving the puzzles! They are available on PS4 and Xbox One.
