This blog, however is important to me. I want to keep writing here, it makes me really happy. I am also going to something with the Bookclub as I have completely dropped out for a couple of months. I think I am going to do two books for a month.
So onto some links to some stuff that I am happy to share. In no particular order...
The Great British Sewing Bee, series four. I am really enjoying this series so far. It has gotten increasingly harder and some of the challenges are super crazy! Though the ski suit thing they had to refashion to make me giggle this week, if only for the outfit that Claudia Winkleman wore.
It's something that I really love and if you live in the UK you can find it on BBC IPlayer. That picture just makes me smile.
I found this podcast only just yesterday and I gobbled up more than ten in just two days. They talk about a pop culture and in a way I really love (plus it is run by librarians, be still my heart). It's something that I really recommend. You can find it here: https://bellwetherfriends.wordpress.com/
Talking of that podcast. There is where I found this really interesting article about queer women on TV. You can find it here: http://www.autostraddle.com/2015-queer-lady-tv-literally-everything-you-need-to-know-with-infographic-271508/
I also only found this website last night at around half 11. Still I want to dive in and read all of these books. I am so excited that there is a website about people of colour in romances. You can find it here: http://romancenovelsincolor.com/
Talking of romance with people of colour, I read A Bollywood Affair by Sonali Dev at the beginning of the year. It's so good. I happened get it on audio via my library and the narration was great. Read this book, it's really good, plus that cover is amazing.
I have a history of getting into things well past the pop culture being interested in it. I was looking at songs on Glee. What interested me about the two songs that I am going to post about are the arrangements. The arrangement of Smooth Criminal isn't fancy but those cellos I could listen to all day. Plus the voices are great. You can find it here:
This other song, it's amazing. This is the combination of Rumour has it and Someone like You. It's fantastic, those voices blew me away. You can find it here:
I also over the last month discovered the Phoenix Pack series by Suzanne Wright. I am not a huge paranormal reader but this series really hooked me. This has a lot of violence and there a quite a lot of sex scenes. I think my favourite of the series so far is Dark Instincts. I just love Roni a lot. She's my kind of heroine. I also like the cover. Again this is a book that is violent and sexy, so that might not be your thing, but it was definitely mine.
I, while surfing the internet came across this twitter account. If you are not following this, do it yesterday, @angryasianman.
It was through this that I found this article, that you can find here: https://www.buzzfeed.com/alisonwillmore/28-asian-american-filmakers?utm_term=.hy1Rd9gVZ#.emx8MqQWG
I was reminded through that article how much I loved that dance sequence in Step Up 3. Which you can find here:
And I will link last to this that I found via @twobossydames on twitter. This made me like Gina Rodriguez so much (Jane the Virgin is a really good show as well). She gave her golden globe dress to a fan to wear to her Prom. You see the whole story here: http://www.vulture.com/2016/03/gina-rodriguez-sends-fan-golden-globes-dress.html#
I am going to end this by recommending this song and this specific arrangement by The Wailin' Jennys. The Parting Glass is such a good song. There is something about listening to something that is just pure voice. I could not stop listening to it when I first found it. You can find it here:
