Recent Media Favorites: Television, Music & Books

Entertainment

I’m an admitted home body, I love being at home but I also liked having the option of not being at home when I wanted. With what is gearing up to be a long, long winter ahead & having even more quiet time at home, I have definitely been consuming more than my fair share of media. Books, music, television, movies – sometimes I have the radio on while I am reading a book – madness, I tell you. Really anything that will distract me from shopping online, eating or watching the news ๐Ÿ˜›

Wonderful Jungle Free Regular

I missed out on this classic during my youth but have made up for these past few weeks. It’s just fun, wholesome, 90’s entertainment. Sarah Michelle Gellar was such a teen queen & David Boreanaz is still my ultimate dream boat. I’m a big fan of Agent Booth in Bones & didn’t realize he played such a major role in Buffy. I don’t get why the vampires are all so hideous but I have enjoyed every episode so far. I think I might check out Charmed next as I never watched that one before either.

I am a repeat offender of watching comfort shows instead of checking out new ones, I am trying to break this habit. The Office takes me back to college & my dorm mates hunkering down to watch new episodes when we had spare time. Even though I’ve watched so many of the episodes dozens of times, they still crack me up. I think that my favorites are the Christmas episodes but I will elaborate more on that during Blogmas ๐Ÿ˜›

Wonderful Jungle Free Regular

This show has been surprisingly tough for me to get into even though I have a keen interest in the royal family. Not the newest generation, my interest stops with Diana but Queen Elizabeth & Princess Margaret are some of my favorite royals to read about. I felt inclined to dive back into the show when Gillian Anderson was announced as Margaret Thatcher – I cannot wait to get to the most recent season.

New folk, old folk, all the folk. I’ve been enjoying The Decemberists, Simon & Garfunkel, Joan Baez, The Traveling Wilburys, John Denver – you name it, I’ve been rocking out to it. The Mariner’s Revenge Song has been my favorite to drive around & scream sing too. Also, I can’t carry a tune so I mostly scream sing everything ๐Ÿ˜€ The live version of My Back Pages sung by most of the members of the Traveling Wilburys has also been a repeat. I never understood the chorus but it makes a lot more sense to me in my adulthood.

This series is so good! I had the first book on a recent To Be Read & am so glad that I did. It’s not as good as the world of Harry Potter but it is still a very fun & if you have any interest in the darker, youth fantasy genre I would recommend checking it out. I have been listening to the series on Audible & I think the narrator is fantastic all around but would definitely pick up a hard copy too. The storyline of cursed children is dark but the main character is saved from her demise & that’s where the adventure begins.

I have a lot of time on my hands so if you have any recommendations, let me know! I’m not looking for anyting super heavy right now but open to most anything else ๐Ÿค

  1. Omg Buffy was my jam growing up! I was still really young though when I watched it so would be interesting to go through it again. There is nothing like the series and honestly, I kinda like that the zombies are hideous looking unlike the ones now that are so stylised ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I have not watched The Crown but I am willing to watch it for Gillian Anderson’s role as I love her.

    1. It’s such a fun show! You should rewatch it, pretty enjoyable โ˜บ๏ธ They’re definitely different – they look like actual monsters! I agree, monsters are too chic these days.

      It’s good…I think what weirds me out a little is that lots of the characters are real people who are still alive. Also this season includes Princess Diana โ˜น๏ธ Yes! Gillian Anderson is amazing, love her too!!
