Curious Stories from the Week
🎥 I took the Bird Box challenge…I watched the movie but I didn’t take to the idea like a cold “Ice Bucket Challenge.” Unlike some of my fellow humans, I did the usual thing and watched Bird Box on my couch with popcorn. Great movie, worth a watch. [Bird Box | Netflix] - Netflix issues warning about Bird Box Challenge.
🎥 All the episodes of Black Mirrors on Netflix had a baby, they called it Bandersnatch. Literally, a choose your own adventure…movie. Creepy and fascinating in how you control the story. Be warned, you need to watch it with your phone or tablet in hand to make your choices. [Bandersnatch | Netflix]
🎨The most interesting about artists is how they evolve. If you know who Hokusai is, you get major points. You might know of his famous “Great Wave,” which shows up in pop art and tattoos the world over. ⬇️

What’s with the name, Sunday Roast and Stories Mindfully Curated? Sunday is a good day to do a weekly review. A time to take stock in the past week and get ready for the next. Which is always done with a fine coffee beverage, hence the Roast part. Through the week I share articles and stories that mattered in the long-run, not bits that are of pop culture or political. My goal is always to seek information that is as unbiased as possible, interesting, or enriching. In other words, Mindfully Curated for you.
Did you enjoy this issue?
