What I'm Into (September 2015)

What I've been reading...apparently not much.  That's sort of lame.  Not sure how that happened, I didn't even notice till now.  Anyway, I read Broken Monsters, Sound of Broken Glass, Fourth of July Creek, and I'm about halfway thru Finders Keepers.  That leaves Death on Demand, Among Others, and Until You're Mine in my basket, but I gotta be honest, it's not looking good for Until You're Mine. I still have a bad taste in my  mouth from that stupid Second Life and the lame Girl on the Train, so I have no real desire for Mine.  Then again, I sure did love Good Girl.

Anyway, I've got my next books all mapped out at different library branches: One Good Turn (the follow up to Case Histories), Raven Boys, Fingersmith, Girl With all the Gifts, Life Intended, Grave Mercy and Ready Player One.

What I've been watching...so much.  As always.  Finally got back into Scandal (season three, so NO SPOILERS) and I finally finished Eleven's episodes of Doctor Who.  Not gonna lie, I cried when Amelia and Amy showed up.  Still hate Clara.  I watched Twelve's first episode and I liked it enough, but I still hate Clara.  And I'm not a fan of Madame Vastra and Jenny.  And I already know who Missy is.  But still.  I'm excited. Plus, Twelve has already uttered what might be my favorite line EVER.

Nick and I watched Daredevil on netflix and we LOVED it.  Like, LOVE loved it.  All caps.  It was campy and fun.  I kept wishing he'd use PEEKABOO like from Honey I Blew Up the Baby as his catch phrase.  Wouldn't that be hilarious?

PEEKABOO

Nick didn't think so either. But Matt Murdock? YUM.

I went to the movies for the National Theater Live (non-live) screening of Coriolanus and felt like a dummy for not really understanding the dialogue but I think I got the gist.
Plus Loki without a shirt.  What else do you need? He's so fucking badass.
They're doing Hamlet with BBC Sherlock in two weeks, actually live this time, and I'm gonna go see that one too.  I feel like I should go to the actual theater since I do live in London, but I can go to the movie theater alone, it's only ten pounds, plus Hamlet sold out in like less than thirty seconds.

What I've been listening to... last weekend a girlfriend and I went to the Kerry Ellis and Louise Dearman show at the Prince Edward theater and it was absolutely MIND BLOWING.  I knew they were amazing (Louise was Elphaba when I went to see it with my parents, and Kerry came out when we went to see Proper Glinda at the Royal Albert Hall last year) so I was mega excited, but I was a teensy bit worried bc when Nick and I went to see Proper Elphaba...she wasn't that good.

But this?!?! This was amazing.  I'd use the phrase knocked my socks off without feeling foolish.  I cried twice.  And Kerry Ellis was massively pregnant and still sounded amazing.  In fact, I went in thinking I preffered Louise, but mid way thru the show...it became a pretty tight competition.  I still can't decide.  They're both just amazing.  AMAZING.  So naturally, I'm listening to their cds nonstop now, and hunting youtube for clips of them together at the show.  BLEW MY SOCKS OFF yall.  BLEW MY SOCKS RIGHT OFF.


What I'm looking forward to... we've got Imagine Dragons coming up, then Monsters and Men.  And then I somehow didn't know that Mumford is coming in early December (it's bc I'm not speaking to them bc their new cd is too different.  You know how I feel about different) so I didn't get tickets right away (you fool) and now they cost a fortune.  Like over a hundred pounds per, for terrible seats. SO.... I'm waiting.  Maybe they'll show up on tickets for troops.  Otherwise, I'll just be rocking out in the kitchen.  To their OLD cds.  It hurts my heart because I love them so. But two hundred pounds PLUS another what, hundred for a sitter? I just can't justify that.  I mean, they're not the Killers. It'd be different if we didn't have Monsters and Men coming up.  If for some reason someone put a gun to my head and made me rank my three favorite bands, it would go Killers, Monsters, then Mumford.  So I'm sad, but not too sad.

And tomorrow, I'm going to see the Martian and I'm so excited I don't even want to talk about it.

What are you into this month?

As always, linking up with Leigh Kramer.
