J: Week 16 (Randomness)

I know, I know, this week's post is very late. The truth is that I just haven't really known what to blog about. Five years ago I never thought I'd be saying this, but I honestly just don't watch that much TV anymore. And I don't have as much time to read as I'd like, few movies interest me, and music always has and always will kind of overwhelm me. But I wouldn't say that I've totally cut myself off from pop culture - here's just a random selection of things that I've been enjoying or that I'm looking forward to.
  • The Veronica Mars movie - Obviously, I contributed to the kickstarter!
  • Before Midnight - Third in the series after Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, which are some of my favorite movies of all time. SO excited for this.
  • Tegan and Sara's album Heartthrob and Frightened Rabbit's album Pedestrian Verse.
  • In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larsen. Almost finished with this book. It seems I've been on a non-fiction kick lately...
  • Next up on my audiobook queue: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein and The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater
  • Top of the Lake - I started watching this Sundance Channel series and thought it was really interesting but fell behind. Would like to finish it up before I move since I'm not planning on having cable TV at my new place.
  • Mr. Selfridge  - Same story, started watching this latest Masterpiece Classic series but fell behind. At first I was like, Jeremy Piven in a period piece? But he's actually really quite good.
  • Pop Culture Happy Hour - Apparently I like listening to people talking about things I don't watch or read or listen to.
  • This American Life - Still try to catch this every week. Dr. Gilmer and Mr. Hyde was a really interesting recent one.
