Lazy Sunday Thoughts Are a Little Chilly
Brr! It’s a bit fresh out there! Finally feels like fall, which is nice since October starts this week.
Anyone going to watch the Blood Moon eclipse tonight? I’m going to try my night photography skills on the moon. I hope I get some non-blurry shots.
I’m almost done The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood which is one of the weirdest books I read this year. I don’t know what to make of it.
I have a review scheduled for Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling, the audiobook. Yay!
Monkalong is this Thursday! I’ve read my chapters. Have you?
Thought I’d share some interesting links I read this week:
So, Ryan Adams covered Taylor Swift’s 1989 and music critics somehow managed to simultaneously praise Adams and insult Swift. Anna Leszkiewicz gathers the worst offenders in her article The Mansplaining of Taylor Swift. Swift’s songs, which she actually wrote, are only any good if some dude sings them. I’m not a Swift Superfan, but I think she’s doing well for herself and these criticisms are both sexist and patronizing. Oh and I listened to Adams’s version and I was bored.
This is too real: How to Stock an Independent Bookstore. You’ll find the books at the back of my local chain bookstore.
In medieval Poland there was a connection between cholera and “vampires,” via Strange Company (lots of interesting links there).
I thought this video from Skit Box was really funny. Sometimes I put on some yoga pants and fluffy socks and call it a day.
