The Post About the Rabbit Recommends: January 2014

Each week or so I post things of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens after my recommendation. Ignore, embrace, debate. Earlier volumes of The Rabbit Recommends can be found here.

Last month, I loved much and loved it well. It's easy when the weather outside is frightful AND you're unemployed to consume a lot of stuff.

Sherlock Season 3: It's odd when an entire season of a show can begin and end in one month but when there are only 3 episodes it's doable. But they were good ones. You can watch this season on pbs.org and the previous two seasons on Amazon Prime.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: I didn't discover this gem until Tina Fey was a guest. Now I've binged them all. I adore chatting with people who are funny during regular conversation. Jerry Seinfeld is the king of this. My favorite conversations include Chris Rock, Seth Meyers, and surprisingly Alec Baldwin.

Taylor Swift Thinking She Won a Grammy and Then She Didn't.

I Have Decided: My pastor led a message series about the four best decisions you can make in 2014. It was surely goodness and mercy.

One Word 2014: My word for 2014 is "waffle." I ordered this necklace to stay focused. It's scented.

The Goldbergs: I recommended this ABC sitcom to everyone last month. If you were aware of the 80s, then you can watch any episode and be transported.

Writing Music: Camping out in coffee shops means musical inspiration that doesn't necessarily lead to dance breaks. Enter artists like The Album Leaf, Olafur Arnalds, Dustin O'Halloran, Explosions in the Sky, Goldmund, Christopher O'Riley, and David Jalbert. Here's a link to my "Writing Right" playlist on Spotify.

The Power of Habit: Charles Duhigg's NYT bestseller is worthy of your time. It forced me to think about how I can better accomplish my goals by taking a close look at my habits. It was a fast and fascinating read.

One Direction Auto-Tune: No video has made me laugh this hard in a long time. And I watch a lot of videos.

The Popcast: This month on our pop culture podcast, Knox and I tackled the Golden Globes, Grammys, Bachelor, Woody Allen, American Hustle, Miley Cyrus, Ron Paul, Scandal, True Detective, Drake, Anonymous Commenting, Richard Sherman, Anna Kendrick, Arby's and more.

Short Term 12: Not only the best movie I watched this month but in my top list of all time. It's the story of Grace, a supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers. The movie took South by Southwest by storm and is up for three Independent Spirit awards. It wrecked me in the best way.
