Media Madness Monday: An Orphan Returns

Pin It

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

Orphan Black is back! After getting hooked on this show during a Christmastime marathon, I could not wait for it to return. The season premiere did not disappoint. Alison is such a bad ass. She’s the most underestimated clone. She and Felix had some fun moments. I’m liking Art more and more too. Him and his itty bitty gray beard. I hope he helps Sarah find Kira. And that ending. Wow, that ending! Can’t wait for next week!

Yes, girl, I was that excited too!

Tunes

Ingrid Michaelson has a brand new album, Lights Out. I’m debating whether or not to buy it. I think I need to listen to a few more sample before I decide. I’m waiting for Lykke Li’s new album coming out in May. Do I wait or buy Ingrid’s now?

Podcasting

On Stuff Mom Never Told You, Caroline and Cristen talked to Dr Anne Helen Petersen about the history of Hollywood gossip. Back in the day, as well as today, there were celebrities who were very good at controlling the conversation about themselves. Women and Weed was interesting too. Did you know Queen Victoria was prescribed it for cramps? (She didn’t smoke it-as far as we know!) That was a really long but educational podcast.

 

On the Web

Okay, one book related thing. Flavorwire has a list of 50 books under 200 pages. I’ve added quite a few to my list of wants. Have you read any of them? I’ve read a few. Just because they’re short doesn’t mean they’re easy. *cough*MrsDalloway*cough*

Any new and interesting items to share?

  1. Nothing thrilling to share, just a shared extreme enthusiasm for Orphan Black. I was SO EXCITED to have it back on Saturday! I can't wait to see what they do with this season, and I hope it involves more clones. (cause you know, Tatiana Maslany doesn't have enough to do already)

    1. More clones! It was a good start, I hope it continues that way.
