It’s that time of the month again to talk about all things Pop Culture that are making me happy this summer.
Orange is the New Black– are you kidding me? This is the greatest TV show I didn’t know I’d love! The Lost style flashbacks are great, and a more honest than expected life in prison is pretty interesting. I have 2 episodes left, and I will be so sad to have to wait for more!
The Newsroom– I made it through Season 1 of the over the top preachy-ness from Sorkin, and was praying he’d learn from his mistakes in S2. The Season premier was a disappointment, but it’s getting better, and I’m buying every kid on my Christmas list Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile this year.
Under the Dome– I need to stop watching this show, but it’s summer and there’s not much else on. Some of the story lines are ridiculous, but the two kids who seem to hold a key to the dome keep me coming back for more.
I haven’t seen a ton of movies lately, or really often, but I have kept Pitch Perfect on the DVR and seem to be watching it about once a week. Sorry if you catch me singing Party in the USA.
A couple weeks ago my brother came to visit and we had a date to go see The Way Way Back. It was AWESOME. stop what you’re doing and go see it. So funny and sweet and watching Steve Carrell & Amanda Peet being awful was an interesting change. Sam Rockwell makes every movie better I’ve decided.
I’m still reading Someone to Run With and hoping to finish it by the end of the month. I got a Kindle for my birthday and have a long list of books to read. I’m so grateful for the KCLS ebook library! It will save me TONS of money.
I also got The 5th Wave for my birthday from my dad. He wouldn’t stop talking about it, and I’m excited to read it!
Oh! And I got Y The Last Man (also from my dad) for my birthday. Such a great concept for a graphic novel, and I’m definitley intrigued to keep reading this series!
Not much new here- the Justin Timberlake & Jay-Z concert was AWESOME! There’s a new Civil Wars album out I need to pick up and start listening to on repeat, and I’m excited for The Lumineers concert in September!
So what are you reading, watching, and listening to this summer?
