Antonio Honda Is The Wrestler Of The Year

Antonio Honda vs. a magazine

He fought a magazine. He lost a match by reading his own erotic fiction. He broke his knee at least 100 times. And he fought Kenny Omega in Omega’s high-profile return to Japan.

For these, and many other reasons, Antonio Honda is the 2019 professional wrestler of the year.

Sarah explained why in a piece for Fanbyte.

Parasite Is Brilliant Insight Into The Class War

Parasite

Parasite, the latest film by South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer), is a sometimes outlandish, sometimes horrifying and at all times brilliant look into the class war through the eyes of a poor family of four who become the domestic help for a wealthy family.

When Sarah saw the film at the Toronto International Film Festival the consensus among critics was mostly “holy shit.”

To find out why read her review of the film for Consequence of Sound by clicking here.

Death Of An iPod And The Comfort In Specific Objects

Recently Sarah’s beloved sixth-generation black 80GB iPod Classic died.

This wasn’t just a loss because of the difficulty in trying to find some new surrogate device, it was a loss because the iPod represented a specific type of comfort object for her.

Sarah explained why in a piece for Vox’s The Goods section.

Lulu Pencil Is Important Freelance Writer Representation

Lulu Pencil

She’s afraid of heights, weak and constantly loses, but Lulu Pencil is one of professional wrestling’s breakout stars of 2019.

The reason, in part, is because Lulu Pencil is actually a working freelance writer who wrestles on the side in Japan’s Gatoh Move promotion. And a creative class wimp who taps out to rest holds and constantly fails speaks to a surprising amount of savvy wrestling fans.

Sarah wrote about Lulu Pencil in a piece for Fanbyte.

Awesome Music Project Uses Feel-Good Stories To Fund Music Therapy

The Awesome Music Project

When the Awesome Music Project Canada: Songs Of Hope And Happiness book was released this fall it had two goals:

a) Share the 111 stories from people across Canada (including famous types like Sarah McLachlan and Theo Fleury) who explained how music deeply affected them.
b) Use money from sales of said book to support music therapy research.

The Awesome Music Project is fast expanding, though, with live events and books in the works.

I spoke to co-creator Terry Stuart about it for Samaritanmag.
