on the radar

I was all ready to post last night and then...blam-o.  The power went out.  Awesome.  Thankfully it came back on about 3 hours later.  It didn't get too hot and humid in just 3 hours.

Anyway, here are a few things on my radar lately....

The Two Towers.  I'm watching it yet again.  I realized this time why I love it so much.  The Rohan.  Edoras. Eowyn and Faramir, two of my favorites, enter the story.  And how  Aragorn and Arwen's story is shown in flashes.  It's so beautifully shot and makes me want to immediately blow all my savings and go to New Zealand.

Snow White and The Huntsman.  I can't wait to see this one.  Chris Hemsworth is quickly becoming a favorite.  (ps...did you know his little brother is Gale from The Hunger Games?  Crazy, right?!)

Valtari.  Came out this week. My copy is on it's way at the moment.  Vinyl addition.

VSCO cam.  I'm addicted to this app.  The website explains it as "less as more" and it is.  The filters are perfect.  And the amount of editing you can do in your phone is just amazing.  I'm loving it and taking lots and lots of photos just so I can play with it more.

Reading.  I've been reading some Story Girl, one that I have actually never read.  I know.  An L.M. book I haven't read.  It's a miracle.  And then reading House of Dreams, or at least the last 4 chapters because I just needed to read the part about Captain Jim finally reading his Life Book.  And then the ending of Little Women.  I never tire of Laurie and Amy's chapter at the end.  

Newsies, the musical.  I think it's hilarious that Broadway is oooooing and aaaahhhing over it right now.  As a crazed fan of the 1992 movie that the critics hated, I just can't get over all the attention the musical is getting.  I want to see it.  To compare, of course.  But I bet it won't be as good as my high school self remembers the movie being.

Bed time.  It's here.  I'm tired.  It has been a long week.

Night, all.

How did I miss this post? Whew... Little Women is possibly in my top 5 favorite books of all time. Maybe top 3.
