Weekly digest (1/28/11)

Lordy, where has January gone?! And yet Friday, I’m always happy to see your face.

  • Read it. I’ve been lugging Keith Richards’ autobiography, Life, on BART. I’ll write more next week about it, but, fact: it’s fun as a barrel of rum (and totally worth the shoulder strain).


  • Saw it. Parks and Rec deleted scenes!! (Now that it’s officially back I might post less about it. Maybe).


  • Heard it. KEXP (90.7 in Seattle) is my favorite radio station, and I listen to the Roadhouse weekly. Check out this great Roadhouse podcast, full of American roots music and you’ll get obsessed too.



Weekly digest

  • Read it. Besides Drinking at the Movies? In the middle of Street of Crocodiles. I have Keith Richard’s biography staring me down, so I’ll be reading about that soon.
  • Saw it. PARKS AND REC IS BACK!!! That is all.
  • Heard it. Mad turned me onto a Spanish artist called El Guincho, a worldly type of electronica. I was reminded of everyone’s favorite study abroad soundtrack, Manu Chao, and I mean that in the best way possible.

Weekly digest

  • Read it. I’m in the middle of Isak Dinesen’s Seven Gothic Tales and I’m very much in love. I’m hoping to have a post up next week, but I don’t even know if I can do credit by it. Highly recommended for the literary, romantic/gothic types.
  • Saw it. Frak me, I finally started watching Battlestar Galactica last weekend and it’s been all I can do to not stay home from work and binge on it. I sure hope all the seasons are on Netflix watch instantly…
  • Heard it. I bought the Oxford American Southern Music Issue this week! Always a great read, but even better is the music. This issue (#12!)’s theme is Alabama. A sliver for your listening pleasure, The Gosdin Brothers:
