The Post About the Rabbit Recommends v.6

Each weekend, I post a readable, a watchable, and a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens next. Earlier volumes can be found here.


I know it seems like an odd suggestion, especially since this children's book is about an abusive and codependent relationship. But who hasn't been in one those? The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein is without a doubt one of the most gorgeous stories about unconditional love. I have started giving it as a gift to all new mommies (who sometimes struggle with codependence - this probably doesn't help.)


The Closer on TNT is one of the only procedural shows I love. Deep down, I'm still that 9-year-old who sat in front of a huge TV at Grandma's watching our "stories" - As The World Turns and Guiding Light (while sipping sweet tea and eating a sleeve of crackers - no wonder I have an addition to carbs - thanks G-ma.) This show combines a phenomenal ensemble cast, a sassy Southern accent, and a dead body or two for a captivating 47 minutes. Watch 3 episodes online for free or pay a little for a lot of fabulous by visiting TV Guide.


Say what you will about Katy Perry and her affinity for smoochin' girls, but she sure can sing. I'm praying for her to unbreak her parents' hearts and return to singing about less insane topics and maybe even heavenly things. Does it count that she covers this song about God? Black and Gold from the
Sweetheart Compilation.

Time for you to comment. What's one artist I should be listening to? I share - you share. It's only fair.


  1. I'm going to have to contest the point about Katy Perry being able to sing. Did you see her performance during the Grammys? It was terrible! It might still be on youtube...

    ...right now I'm enjoying Ryan Adams and TV on the Radio...they have about as much Christian content as a jar of mayonnaise, but....its certainly more family friendly than "I Kissed A Girl." And I like them because I can listen to all their music for free on their myspaces. even the older cds. I think everyone should do that.

  2. Scott - I'll actually agree with you about her performance at the Grammy's. I'm going to claim it was the fruit she rode in on and being dressed as Chiquita Banana.

    I heart Ryan Adams for sure and was just intro'd to TVOR on The Colbert Report - they were excellent.

    I also heart free.

  3. My 5 year old loves The Giving Tree.  I feel sad when I read it to her though because it's a sad story, at the same time I feel weird because S.S. wrote for playboy and also wrote 2 (maybe 3) of my favorite Johnny Cash tunes which deal with death and drugs and a boy...named Sue.

  4. I'm glad you wandered around my blog awhile and that you landed on a shared recommendation! Plus, you shared facts I didn't know existed but I'm certain you didn't make them up.


Don't be afraid if I chase your rabbit comment...
