I love for people to tell me what they are reading, watching, or listening to. Well, not all people. Some people don't have good taste.
So several folks asked for a regular update on things I hear of or have experienced firsthand that I'd consider entertaining or intriguing or both. (I was surprised by that request too.)
So each weekend, I will post a readable, a watchable, and a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens next.
This book had me at Saturday, October 26, 1991... It flash-backhanded me to Memento (which you'll learn more about in a second - depending on how fast you read). Plus, time travel is the undercurrent of Lost, which I have a show crush on. Niffenegger has a way with pushing and pulling you in several directions and you keep turning the page. Thanks Sam for this great recommendation.
This movie is from 2000 and was written & directed by Christopher Nolan (who made Batman cool again). Leonard has anterograde amnesia which forces him to develop some mad skills. The film is told in two narratives, one of which gives you the same amnesia. Pushing and pulling. But you keep watching. It has one of the highest ratings on Rotten Tomatoes for a reason.
I don't remember falling for Mutemath, but I did - hard. This is the only band I was willing to stand in one spot at Workplay for 3 hours to see. Sadly, they do not put out material very often...but they're supposedly working hard for the money now in the studio. Good for them (and me).
I expect your own recommendations in the lovely comment area. Including you lurkers, whom I adore...
