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.
If you like me (and I do not assume) then you might like one of my favorite blogs ever. The Pioneer Woman (aka Ree Drummond) writes about everything from remodeling a house, cooking mac-n-cheese, raising punk children, and living on a working ranch with all the smells that come with it. Plus, there's a great section about how she went from an LA lush life to farm livin' which rivals any romance novel out there (guys, please try to read the rest of this post before clicking on over...) And I wouldn't call her "favorite" if she wasn't funny.
I am, yet again, repeating a previous recommendation. Which means I must not want you to miss it. Kings on NBC is such a great show. The bad news is very few people have discovered that fact. I'm guessing it's the feel good competition from Extreme Home Makeover and the Amazing Race (a show I know I'd love if I ever took the bait) keeping people from a show I think God should intervene and save, especially since He's all up in it. I've taken the lead from my friend Scott and provided you a little Hulu nugget to guide you to the first well-done and movie-like episodes.
Folk Rock seems like an oxymoron - similar to sweet sorrow or illiterate librarian. But I'll tell you - I love it. There's nothing finer than sitting on my loveseat with a good book and some folkie acoustic someone overtaking the silence. One such someone I'm crushing on right now is Joshua Radin. If you watch television, then you've probably heard his music in the background of some pivotal scene. I love this song "Only You" and both of his albums. You can love them too.
Always hunting down your suggestions...
