▶ Fascinating article about Bong Joon Ho’s brilliant film PARASITE:

“Bong’s blending of genres often involves special, sometimes contradictory demands on his music coordinator — in Parasite’s case, 37-year-old South Korean composer Jung Jaeil. For the film’s opening sequence, for instance, the script called for a piano piece that was “hopeful and very anxious at the same time.” Over months, Jung composed four versions, all of which were rejected by Bong. “After he passed on the fourth, I felt very depressed,” Jung remembers. Jung drank himself into a stupor and “just slept on my sofa.” The next morning, he woke up with a terrible hangover and began improvising over a narrow middle section of his piano. “I had basically lost all hope, but that was the version he accepted.”

Finally got around to signing up to KidsCan, a local charity project that helps support kids in need…

Apart from everything else wrong in the world, it is diabolical that kids can go to school with no food. My parents worked hard their entire life to support four kids and we never went hungry, ever. And while we sure can’t solve all the problems in the world, helping give one kid a better chance seems worthwhile…
Anyway this isn’t a humble brag – if you are able I genuinely encourage you to find a similar charity in your own country (unless you are a parent, in which case respect to you) But it amused me, one of the last parts of the sign up form asks is why you have chosen to support their cause… My answer: existential dread (also a good name for a rasta poet!)
