Welcome to the February edition of the gwern.net ML; the previous was January.

The purpose of this mailing list is to be a summarized version of the site RSS feed (which lists every patch), overlapping with my Changelog page, but in a push/notification medium rather than pull. It includes material from my Google+ & the LW media threads.

Fiction:

Film/TV

Film:

  • All Is Lost: if the WP description of a 1.5 hour dialogue-less film about a small-boat disaster & survival sounds like something you’d enjoy, you probably will; Redford does an excellent job and it is interesting to watch his character think & improvise and try to master the situations he finds himself in
  • The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: not nearly as awful and sentimental tripe as one would expect given the setting of a retirement home in India, and particularly interesting for depicting some of the struggles elderly people experience these days (not something I see much of).

Anime:

  • Silver Spoon
  • Uchouten Kazoku
  • Genshiken Nidaime (review)
  • Iblard Time
