ONE: An important read. “20 Years Ago, I Accidentally Struck and Killed a Cyclist.”

TWO: The Happy Movie looks pretty incredible. Must watch soon.

THREE: What Happens When Bookstore Employees Get Bored? This.

FIVE: Thanks to a most eloquent review by Bill Gates, I’ve added When Breath Becomes Air to my must-read list.

SIX: I’d tell you how many times I’ve watched this video, but I’ve lost count. “4-year-old girl swept off her feet by fierce Ohio winds.”

SEVEN: This book has received so much positive buzz, I couldn’t DL it fast enough when I saw the Kindle version on sale for $3.99. Not sure how long it will be on sale for. Have you read The Marriage Lie by Kimberly Belle?

Until next time, be kind to yourself. And each other.

Weekly Wrap-Up

It’s been awhile, but I’M BACK! Kicking things off again with my Weekly Wrap-Up.

Seven things that moved me, grooved me, or improved me. 

ONE: This? True love. You May Want to Marry My Husband is an amazing piece of writing by the incredibly courageous Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

TWO: I see an evil face in this burning tree. And while it’s giving me the creeps, I can’t look away.

THREE: Fascinating. Turkeys Circling a Dead Cat Are Probably Weary, Not Working Dark Magic.

FOUR: Squee! Hall & Oates + Tears For Fears Plot Joint North American Tour. I am SO THERE!

FIVE: Enough said. img_5218
 

SIX: Schitt’s Creek: The best comedy on Pop TV and Netflix. Do yourself a solid and watch it. Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Dan Levy, and Chris Elliott. Need I say more?

SEVEN: “Everything has a purpose.” Amen, Francisco Lindor. Indians’ Lindor inspired by sister’s cancer battle.

Until next time, be kind to yourself. And each other.

My Happiness

Maybe this will help someone. Maybe this will get me laughed off the Internet and out of town. I’m good either way. Really.

Let’s just say I’ve been supremely bummed since RSD as I’ve been unable to spin Elvis’ “My Happiness”, because 78 RPM.

Turns out, if I press both the 33 and 45 buttons, my TT spins at 78 RPM. I’ll let you do the math.

As you were. Or commence laughing at me. I’m good. Elvis’ sweet voice and every glorious pop and crackle are filling the room. My happiness…😍

Until next time, be kind to yourself. And each other.

Drum Experiment (Bir de Benden Dinle)

1 song. 19 drummers. 19 different interpretations. This is Drum Experience (Bir de Benden Dinle). Here is Daru Jones’ approach. Difficult to tell where Daru ends and his drumsticks begin. I just love to watch him at work. Overflowing with heart. Overflowing with soul. Daru is an exceptional musician.

Check out the other interpretations here

Daru is Jack White’s touring drummer and so much more. Find Daru online:

Until next time, be kind to yourself. And each other.

Music Can Help Heal

IMG_0049“Music is a vehicle. Let’s use it to get somewhere good.” ~ Kristine Jackson

And that’s exactly what Kristine does. This month, all proceeds from the sale of her latest single “Proud to Say,” are going to help with her 9 y/o niece’s medical expenses as she undergoes surgery for Trigeminal Neuralgia, a neuropathic disorder characterized by intense pain in the face.

Listen:

.99 download from iTunes.

Whether your support takes the form of a download, a prayer, or positive vibes sent to the Jackson family, it’s very much appreciated.

Until next time, be kind to yourself. And each other.
