Hey there! How are you all doing? I know lots of people are chained to their TVs tonight to watch the Super Bowl (not me).
Maybe some of you noticed that my Friday feature the Bookish Buzz hasn't been posted these last couple of Fridays. I just haven't been feeling it lately, which started me thinking about dropping it. Sometimes I like posting all those links but lately it feels more like work. A few times over the many years I've been doing them, I thought about quitting but always came back to it. I'm not sure about this time. I think I might be done with it. There are so many other places for readers to find links.
I'm considering just posting a few links with my Sunday posts, if I find anything interesting or want to comment on something. Let's try that now.
This new series on Australia Culture Blog caught my attention with a mention of Portishead. I just rediscovered the 1994 album Dummy by the band recently. Nikki Lusk paired The Watchtower with the album. Have you ever thought of pairing albums and books? For me, if I listen to a new song or album while reading a particular book, I'll forever associate one with the other. For example, I listened to a lot of Susanne Sundfør while reading Ash last week. Susanne has an ethereal voice perfect for fairy tales, especially fitting is White Foxes.
Speaking of music, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross is scoring the Gone Girl film. They also did the score for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. It's seems as if they have a thing for books-to-film!
As for reading, I finally finished Possession and will have my thoughts about it up tomorrow. I hope you check it out. I had fun writing it. I also listened to the audio of The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon. It's spooktastic! I'll have a review up for that in the next week.
Enjoy what's left of your weekend!
