It came about because last year I only wrote about things that made me mad, so I wanted to try to focus on something positive once a week. Also, I have a tendency towards wallowing in comforting rewatches when the world is shit, so another goal was for me to seek out things I might love. So far so good! January’s picks after the jump.

Week 1, Lion

Week 2, “Ten Meter Tower” (allowing Chrome to translate that page resulted in dodgy but decipherable subtitles.)

Honorable mention: “Getting Fat in a Healthy Way“, a film I saw at this year’s SciFi Fantasy Short Film Festival about the challenges of finding love in weak gravity. I had been nervous from the title, but it was lovely.

It’s not too late to join in, however you want. Instagram, Twitter, shouting into the void…the more positivity the better
