Trying - Season 1, Episode 2 quotes

Trying - Season 1, Episode 2 quotes

The third series of Apple TV+’s comedy series Trying starts next month and I am so excited for it. I watched the show as it aired, and loved it, and then recently rewatched it again to prepare for the new arrival. And now, if you want me to be really honest, I’m watching it again to pull out the best quotes from the show because it’s just that good.

Wimbledon

Wimbledon

I’ve seen it before and thought it really wasn’t going to stand the test of time but actually it was better than I remembered it being. It’s cheesy and pretty far-fetched but it’s a gentle funny rom-com that does the job. I also really like the time capsule of Wimbledon we see here - nearly twenty years ago, there were no roofs, no Hawkeye, the website was different, rain delays just meant sacking it off and going home. Amazing.

Drink me

As always during the Apple Design Awards, this year I found myself downloading a variety of different award-winning and nominated apps. One of those was WaterLlama, which is an adorable hydration tracker featuring several animals, including the titular llama, that you have to fill up with logged liquids to reach your goal. This app was a finalist in the ‘Delight and Fun’ category and it’s easy to see why. You want to fill up the outline of each animal to reveal the final design and keep the creature happy.

The Lost City

The Lost City

There’s barely anything original about this movie - of course it has Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider comparisons, but also Romancing the Stone and more recently Red Notice and plenty of others in between. But it’s okay because it’s not earnestly trying to be anything but derivative and what it does do is be hilarious. Throughout. From start to finish. Sandra and Channing are brilliant together, Brad Pitt’s brief cameo is wonderful, and Daniel Radcliffe really grows into the role of the bad guy (with a beard). Loved it and didn’t stop laughing which makes it a top notch movie in this day and age.

Photo challenges

Photo challenges

This was a really interesting 30 day challenge for me. For the first week or so, it went perfectly, and then, of course, life got a bit busy and I started to lose the plot. In my head, ‘take a photo every day’ had become ‘take an amazing photo and post it to your website every single day.’ That, I think we can all agree, is much more challenging. So in the end it became a bit of a compromise.

Five things from Glastonbury 2022

Glastonbury returned in triumphant fashion this past weekend and it’s the first time I feel like I’ve been really properly involved - to the extent of even checking through the lineups and making a list of what I wanted to track down if possible. It wasn’t all available to watch from the comfort of my sofa, but I think I did the best job I could and caught much of the fun from the weekend.
