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.
Read & Watch
I recently recommended To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, so I thought I'd recommend another Monroeville, AL resident - Truman Capote. I remember reading In True Blood in college on a whim. I also saw the movie Scream shortly after. I no longer invite fear into my life in such heavy doses. But if I could recommend the founding father of true crime novels - it's this.
On the same note - I watched Capote for the first time this week. Crazy good. Who knew the same Phillip Seymour Hoffman from Charlie Wilson's War and Almost Famous could transform so thoroughly? Now I know why he won the Oscar. Disclaimer: I watched it on TV so the R rating for bloody violence was slightly diluted.
My Minister of Worship - Shawn - asked us to suggest songs to him on a comment card in the AM service. I forgot to do that. So this is my suggestion - Restless by Audrey Assad. And to you, might I suggest the whole album, The House You're Building, with a side of a front porch swing and a glass of lemonade?
Recommending Disclaimer: I don't suggest anything because I get it free or because I have some sort of illicit relationship with an author or producer or musician. I save all of those questionable dealings for owners of Chick-Fil-A.
