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 fell for David Sedaris after falling for his sister, Amy. They're both too funny. You can't go wrong with any of his books of essays, but When You Are Engulfed in Flames is one of the best. It includes chapters on using album covers to scare away birds, dead bodies, and moving to Japan to quit smoking. I love when crazy things happen to wonderful writers. Everyone wins.
I've always had a hankering for fashion - although I wouldn't call myself fashionable. And you already know how I feel about magazines. So Vogue is much loved. I watched The September Issue this weekend and loved it just as much. It's a documentary about the making of Vogue's biggest annual issue and the reigning matriarch of fashion - Anna Wintour. It's the real-life Devil Wears Prada. And it's delicious.
This is also sort of a "watch." I love Glee. LOVE IT. And you might love it too after watching The Power of Madonna episode. If you're still not sold, I'll stop peer pressuring you. Or calling you. Or possibly being friends with you. This eppy featured 7 original performances of some of my favorite Madge songs, including the most beloved "Like a Prayer."
