Quokkas! It has been a while!
We at Team No Award are just super busy right now — with work, with family, everything. We’ve been struggling to find/make time to write quality blog posts. Or even really mediocre ones.
Accordingly, we’re moving to a sporadic posting schedule until further notice. You should follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook if you want a heads up about new posts.
My main memory of the BSC movie is seeing an ad for it and remembering when I was younger and enjoyed reading the books. But anyway…
(I loved the adaptation a lot, but it has a weird blind spot when it comes to race, and that’s replicated in its use of Nina Simone’s music for white lady business. The music supervisor does not discuss that at all! But his other choices are really interesting. I especially liked the use of “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” in one episode, when Kylie Minogue’s fertility and procreative ambitions have been the source of so much public discussion throughout her career.)
