Our First Guest Post!
Anyhow, here is our first Guest Post, from the eminent Sophie Brookover, an official Mover & Shaker. Welcome, Sophie!
Yummy Yummy, by The Wiggles -- Entry #4,985,933,324 in the endless parade of kiddie music I'm experimenting with. Mostly, my daughter listens to whatever my husband & I like, so she's been on a fairly steady diet of Johnny Cash, Velvet Underground, Belle & Sebastian, and Bjork for the last 9 months, but we cede the point that eventually, she'll want her own stuff. So I'm previewing the Wiggles for her.
Good Night & Good Luck -- We downgraded our Netflix plan to the cheapest one available, so we're using the library's DVD collection like mad. Free = good. Added bonus: Clooney! Mmmm, Cloooooney.
I Hate Myself and Want to Die, by Tom Reynolds -- subtitled "The 52 Most Depressing Songs You've Ever Heard", and yet promising chuckles galore between the covers, this is a must read for any music-a-holic. Bonus trivia, courtesy of Marcus: the title is apparently one that Kurt Cobain wanted to use for Nirvana's album In Utero.
Gilmore Girls: Complete 5th Season -- I'm 11th in line for this, so we're netflixing what we can while we wait.
The Stolen Child, by Keith Donohue -- I heard a piece about this on NPR and it sounds right up my alley -- fantasy, child-swapping, grief, longing, tinges of magical realism. Yum!
