Take a shot everytime Moomintroll says 'Strike me Pink!'...😆
So many adventures! I admit to being slightly baffled by my library's choices about this series, the first in hardcover, the next only available as an audiobook, but maybe it was a licensing/price thing. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality 2/? While I think part of the Moomintroll series appeal is supposed to be the art, I'll give kudos to the English narrator for an entertaining array of voices providing its own 'colour' for this audiobook. That being said, the Silken Monkey was a little grating. 😬 5d
Robotswithpersonality 3/? I guess this also went from being a picture book series to middle grade novellas, because the first was 50 pages and this was nearly 200? I'm not actually sure my library has the full set, but I'd be happy to pick up another as a palate cleanser. 5d
Robotswithpersonality 4/4 I thought there was going to be a bit of nonsense about gender norms associated with its mid '40s initial release, but on balance I'd say the Snorkmaiden rose above any notions of shallow, empty-headed materiality when in a crisis, and the rest is just young and old people (especially your own siblings) saying crap about girls even the young reader knows isn't true.

Bookwomble Tove Jansson didn't follow gender norms in her life, nor in her writing 😊🏳️‍🌈 5d
Robotswithpersonality @bookwomble Queer pioneer! ☺️ Based on the bit of poking around I've done so far, it sounds like her bio would be a great read. 4d
Bookwomble @Robotswithpersonality She was 😊 I've had the tagged biography for eight years, as well as a volume of her letters, neither of which I've read yet! 😳 Hopefully, I'll get to at least one of them before too long 😏 4d
Robotswithpersonality @Bookwomble Bio stacked! I admittedly have a much better track record with memoirs than full on biographies, but knowing it's under 300 pages makes it more likely I'll read it! 😅 (edited) 4d

“It was a funny little path, winding here and there, dashing off in different directions and sometimes even tying a knot in itself from sheer joy. You don't get tired of a path like that, and I'm not sure it doesn't get you home quicker in the end.“ 🚶🏼‍♂️☺️

I am adding four more colors to #Pantone24: Mushroom, Northern Droplet, Charlock and Watercress. I have eight more colors to go but those will be more difficult I guess.

Can we do #TuesdayTunes on a Thursday night?? This just came up on a Spotify-curated playlist, and I could smell that school bus seat vinyl and that particular teenage muskiness. Man…took me straight back to high school. Hadn‘t heard the song in years!

So good!

BarbaraBB Of course we can! I didn‘t know this The Verve song but am listening to it while typing this. I love it when a song brings back such memories! 1mo
BarbaraBB Still listening and what a good album! I only knew them from their biggest hit here, Bitter Sweet Symphony, which I didn‘t like much. 1mo

Megabooks @BarbaraBB yes! This was an album I bought back then for their single, but I like the rest of the album much more now than BSS; although the orchestral background is still great. I associate that song with the final scene in Cruel Intentions, which was my college roommate‘s favorite movie so I saw it A LOT! Many good memories with her! 😁😁 1mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB I‘m definitely a nostalgia listener, but I‘m picking up some great new songs too lately. 1mo
Megabooks @vivastory the lyrics definitely hit harder as an adult than they did as a teen. 1mo
BarbaraBB I‘d love to know what you‘re picking up these days and hope you‘ll continue #ThursdayTunes 😜🥰 (edited) 1mo
TieDyeDude This song is new to me, but I like it! Similar orchestral arrangement to BSS. Is that throughout the album? 1mo
Bookwomble @TieDyeDude Yes, it is. I'd recommend Richard Ashcroft's solo albums to you, especially Alone With Everybody and Human Conditions. Song for the Lovers from the former has a great orchestral introduction 😊 https://open.spotify.com/track/7a90gal9tr3yS8bEXUvu8D?si=-O-28vPQSKOgNjSPsyRh4A&... (edited) 1mo
Megabooks @Bookwomble thanks for chiming in! And recommending another artist I‘ll check out! I hope you try the album @TieDyeDude 👍🏻 1mo
Bookwomble @Megabooks You're welcome. Richard Ashcroft is the lead singer and main songwriter for The Verve, so if you like them, you'll like him 😊 1mo
Megabooks @Bookwomble I am SO BAD at knowing the names of band members! 😂😂 even bands I‘ve enjoyed for years I‘d have trouble naming them. 1mo
Bookwomble @Megabooks You only know if you know! 😊 1mo

bookwyrm7 I was wondering when this would come up. I completely agree, some things didn't age well. I think there should be a balance between what is removed and adapted, but we should definitely strive to reduce the racism as much as possible. I think that Pipi will still be a great story without certain parts, so it would actually make it better without taking anything of value from it. 2mo

bookwyrm7 Should we all come together, buy it, and turn it into a library? I say we should! 2mo
TheBookHippie @bookwyrm7 that would be best yes!!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️ 2mo
mrp27 Very cool but I must admit I hated that version of the movie. Totally on board with the library idea. 2mo
