[First Impression] 365: Repeat The Year

[Impression] Nobody Knows

SBS has seriously a streak of great dramas lately. Last year Fiery Priest smashed whatever award show it could, and during this season they have this and Hyena. I had planned to write a traditional first impression short post but then life happened and four episodes stretched into eight so here it is, I am writing an impression only, after the first half of the series.

BBC Great Barrier Reef with David Attenborough 1/3: Builders


This is not the new documentary, it's from the 2015, but underwater environment somehow has the calming effect, that's why I decided to watch and post pictures of it.
In this episode we saw haw amazing mantis shrimp can be it not only dances to entice the female (I approve), but also it has 16 photo receptors. A human eye has 3. So imagine what kind of spectrum of the waves it perceives. I am instantly jealous.
Also, lots of colors here are SHINee color - so you know they reign superior.

Saturday Poetry Corner 30: Dreams

Today - two little poems that hint at dreams. One is fairly explicit, one is a bit less. By Paul Laurence Dunbar.
Paul Laurence Dunbar [1872-1906] was the first African-American poet to garner national critical acclaim. Born in Dayton, Ohio, Dunbar penned a large body of dialect poems, standard English poems, essays, novels and short stories before he died at the age of 33. His work often addressed the difficulties encountered by members of his race and the efforts of African-Americans to achieve equality in America. He was praised both by the prominent literary critics of his time and his literary contemporaries. (after here)

[First Impression] Memorist

Oh, it has been a while I have seen a series with Yu Seungho, the last one being Imaginary Cat, but it was worth waiting for - judging from the first four episodes.
The fact I was on hiatus helped immensely, true.

Today's Throwback Thursday is to the year 1980.
Because I say so.

Quarantine Drawing Challenge

Since, apparently, the lockdown will last longer than 2 weeks, I'm starting the drawing challenge today. Yes, I called it quarantine not lockdown because of pure sound.
I will be updating this post, not create a separate one for each day.
