YouTube Recommendation 

I don't know if any of y'all follow Andrew Huang, but he's now doing a thing where he's gone to space (?) and is living on a spaceship (??) to hunt down time crystals (???) but otherwise still just doing music production reviews and tutorials. It's great. youtube.com/watch?v=mlgkSrFq6h

Sarraounia (1986) is an excellent film showing African resistance to colonization. It's the kind of film we need so much more of, one that makes a good attempt at being historically accurate, is moving to watch, and engages the present through the past
