I'm a media junkie, not just books, but TV, movies, music, podcasts, and internet nonsense. Every Monday I discuss something that's caught my interest this past week.
On the TV
Mindy’s Back! Yipee! I love Mindy Kaling as the perfectly imperfect Dr Mindy Lahari on The Mindy Project. With Mindy’s return to NYC, she ends up dealing with the consequences of her kiss with Dr Danny. Not sure where this is going to go. What is worse, waiting for a couple to get together or having them get together too early? The latter happened to Jess and Nick on New Girl and they’re already broken up.
I’ve only been downloading old music lately. This week I bought some old Garbage tunes and Pop Song 89 by REM (featured on Parks and Recreation this week). It still the ‘90s in my head.
As I was perusing the itunes page, I saw that Sarah McLachlan will have a new album out, Shine On (May 6, 2014). Hide your dogs!
Welcome to Nightvale, Episode: Cookies, begins with an update on the health of Khoshekh after last episode’s events. Poor Cecile is becoming more and more subversive, and hostile toward Management. It also featured an appearance by Intern Dana. Did you know she is voiced by Jasika Nicole, aka Astrid from Fringe?! I did not know until right now! I look forward to hearing more about her and The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home and John Peters (you know, the farmer?).
On the Web
One of my favorite websites is My Modern Met, a website highlighting some of the most creative art and photography projects around the Internet. I don’t have much opportunity to see art in person where I live, so I appreciate what My Modern Met does. It makes it accessible to everyone. Every week there are interesting posts, like this week: an Icelandic ice cave proposal, Underground Iran, and my favorite Vivian Maier. Vivian was a secret artist, a street photographer, who took furtive photos of the world around her. Her photography was recently discovered by accident and it is amazing!
Any thoughts on TV shows, movies, etc, you want to share?
