Quick Review: Willy’s Wonderland

Mirintala/ December 29, 2022/ Movie

This is going to be one of the rare cases where this is not a spoiler free review, but I really don’t feel spoilers ruin this movie. You’re not watching this movie for the plot.

Mirintala/ December 8, 2022/ Book, Media Review

I pre-ordered this book (in ebook form) as soon as it was available for pre-order.

Product Review: Who Gives a Crap? (Not Sponsored)

Mirintala/ March 9, 2022/ Product Review

I kept seeing ads for Who Gives a Crap, a company who makes sustainable household “paper” products out of bamboo: toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissues. I started with the toilet paper. The order came fast, and orders over $30 are shipped carbon neutral, so yay. I was a bit surprised to find the box was sealed with plastic tape

Product Review: Function of Beauty (Not Sponsored)

Mirintala/ March 2, 2022/ Product Review

I picked up the “shower bundle” in a boxing day sale. I figured why not. I’ve been considering trying their products for ages, so many of the people I watch on YouTube have been sponsored by them over the years, they sound good, and the sale was a good price. I didn’t get a lot of options with the sale

Concert Thoughts

Mirintala/ January 5, 2022/ Commentary, Writing

September 3, 2019 You don’t go to a concert for a perfect audio experience. If you want to hear the music the way the artist wants it to be, you get a studio album. There, they had more complete control over how it sounds. (To a degree, of course. But they know how it sounded when it left.) You go

Unearthing Myself

Mirintala/ December 15, 2021/ Writing

There’s nothing quite like the relief one feels upon learning they are not irreparably broken. To have someone reach out and lift that guilt from your shoulders, to say, “this isn’t a burden you need to be bearing”. There’s also a great comfort in being shown that you can do it, you’ve just been doing it the wrong way for
