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.
The blog, How About Orange..., is one of my must-reads. Author, Jessica Jones, is a graphic creator of the best kind. She offers crafty how-to's, ideas, freebies and all-around inspiration. But with a modern twist. No hens. Plus, I like her even though the color orange makes me think of Jack Nicholson which generally makes me melancholy. Oh, Jack.
Jewel. I enjoy her unique sound and her crooked teeth. Her debut album, Pieces of You, hogs a lot of the space on my college mixtape. I mean, I stand in the rain and take my coat off because I'm crazy like that. This video is a delightful use of her talents.
I went to see one of my fave musicians Dave Barnes work out his comedy this weekend. 1. He was really funny. 2. As sad as I was that he didn't sing, he brought two great singer/songwriters with him. The first I'll introduce is Ben Rector. Great voice, great lyrics, and not great suspenders. But he acknowledged that. This song, When a Heart Breaks, is just a sample of a delightful catalog of music.
