Since Annie gave you the run-down of all the things she’s currently digging, I thought I’d share my most recent faves with you as well, since, I’m sure, you’re just dying to know.
Florence and the Machine– I was slow to get into them, and I can’t say I love every song of theirs, but “Blinding” and “Heavy In Your Arms” did me in. “Drumming Song” and “Dog Days Are Over” are excellent work-out songs – I get so into the beat, I forget I’m jogging!
my Kindle– I was reluctant to jump on the eReader bandwagon, simply because I adore books (there’s just something about the feel of the paper in your hands), but after owning one for a few months, I’m totally a fan. The classics are free (I’ve now read all but one of Jane Austen’s beautiful novels and I’m saving Dickens for Christmas) and it’s so light and easy to tote around; it made traveling this summer way easier. Still love actual, paper books, but this is a great supplement.
Mumford & Sons– Annie turned me onto them over a year ago and it’s just not possible for me to get sick of them! “Little Lion Man” and “White Blank Page” are my absolute favorites, but I truly love every song on Sigh No More. In case you’ve been hiding inside of a mountain lately, check it: “The Cave” is crazy good.
Bill Maher– Real Time with Bill Maher is pretty much the ONLY news/current events program I can watch anymore because it’s the only one that isn’t totally full of shit. He has educated, interesting guests on who actually know what they’re talking about instead of just political pundits who make up “facts” and statistics like children pretending to be scientists. Bill Maher brings on ACTUAL scientists.
Sons Of Anarchy– I’ve been neglecting housework and sleep to watch it. I’m certainly not wishing the rest of summer away, but August 30th (the DVD release of season 3, which I haven’t seen yet) can’t get here fast enough! It’s turned me into a junkie – just one more…just one more…!
