This is a multi-media kind of post so I'm going to break it down for you.
Has anyone else checked out the new show on NBC called Believe? I watched the pilot yesterday while I did a nice weight workout. Gotta love a rest day from running, huh?
The pilot was good. Lots of action. A little predictable but also clever. I enjoyed the banter between the young girl and the lead guy. Honestly, it had the kind of energy I wish Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had. I had such high hopes for that show and it just let me down.
But, this show was enjoyable and worth checking out if you've got some room on your DVR.
And Hubs and I are going to see Grand Budapest Hotel this Saturday as part of his birthday celebration. I love Wes Anderson. In fact, I would say The Royal Tenenbaums is tied with Serenity as my favorite movie. Anyone see it yet? Is it good?
I just found out the third book in Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles, Cress, is out which makes me happy. I'm into post-apocalyptic young adult fiction so this is right in my wheelhouse. This series is a bit of a play on fairy tales. It's interesting and if you're into The Hunger Games, Divergent, etc. you might enjoy this trilogy. Speaking of that, why are books all trilogies these days? Just like, why does the last movie based on a series of books have to be separated into two parts? Stupid money making ideas.
What are you reading? Any suggestions on good books?
OK, I think I'm a bit behind on this but I simply love Bastille's Pompei. The beat is awesome, it makes me happy. I just did a little research on the group and they're British which makes them even cooler. I need to get their CD so I can add them to my playlists.
Any other tunes I need to get behind? I listen to a lot of NPR or books on CD on my commutes so I tend to be behind the times when it comes to current popular music.
