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.
A blog that's funny is always a bonus. My apologies. Lovely Listings is a comical collection of all those things people think are fine to keep in their house while it's on the market, but don't. And then their house doesn't sell and they fire their agent because they think it's her fault. But it's not. It's the 60+ dolls they have displayed in their sunroom. This happened to me.
I've rented three movies in the last two weeks. Duplicity and Wolverine completely disappointed - except for the abs of one Hugh Jackman. But State of Play is a different film. Phenomenal cast and topsy turvy plot that keeps you guessing. Really. Reporter investigates the murder of a congressman's assistant and he discovers a big fat conspiracy. Jason Bateman alone makes it worth two hours of your time.
The Family Followill band (a.k.a. Kings of Leon) is quite enjoyable. I play this song, Closer, way more than appropriate. You should download them immediately. And legally.
