Not too long ago I discovered The Front Bottoms and according to last.fm I’ve listened to their songs 1,279 times in the last three months. I’m not sure if that fact packs enough of a punch until you see that my second most played band, Why?, has only been played 631 times in the last three months (which is still a lot!) Yeah, so needless to say, I’m super into them. I wish I could recommend just one song but I love everything. Give them a listen for sure!
Also, Spotify recently added a feature where they make you a little playlist of music they think you might like at the beginning of each week and I’m a little embarrassed to say I look forward to getting my new playlist every Monday. It’s ridiculously accurate. I’ve discovered lots of new artists and songs I enjoy. Nothing that will become my new favorite but it’s super helpful as someone who does get stuck in patterns of listening to things. It’s fun to hear things that I actually enjoy and don’t have to search hard for.
I’ve been on a movie kick lately. I have HBO GO on my apple tv and I think I’ve basically watched every movie on it. Sewing does that to me. If I’m sitting in front of my sewing machine, I am watching a movie. A few that I’ve enjoyed recently for the first time : Feardotcom, Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter is Dead, Gone Girl, Hell Baby, Inspector Gadget, My Favorite Martian, Neighbors, and The Other Woman. Inspector Gadget, and My Favorite Martian are both things I feel like should have been part of my childhood but some how I missed them (or just don’t remember them at all) but they immediately feel like the kind of movie I’ll want to watch when I’m feeling under the weather. Please say you have a list of movies you like to watch when you’re sick too! My list include basically all Jim Carrey movies, Beetlejuice, and Jumanji.
As for TV shows Jeff and I are in the middle of watching Wayward Pines which is way weird. He’s read the books, which is why we started watching, but I’m still totally out of the loop with whats happening. I’m definitely enjoying it though.
Oh! Oh! Oh! And even though it was a little while back it’s worth mentioning that if you’re looking for a documentary on Netflix I recommend An Honest Liar. We actually turned it on because the movie we had just started was making a funny sound and we wanted to see if it was the movie or the tv itself. We switched An Honest Liar on and some how immediately got sucked in. I literally don’t think I’ve ever loved a documentary so much!
Adventure Time Puzzle Quest. Downloading this game was the biggest mistake… in the world. You’re battling characters while working your way through a map. Each one of your moves hurts the opponent a certain amount. You can use treasures you find to level up your characters. The reviews on the game are kind of mixed since it does have some glitches. Regardless, it’s way more fun than I was expecting! I downloaded it late one night while in bed because I couldn’t sleep and now I’m playing like every second I can. Sorry in advance if you download it and waste a ton of time.
I’m actually still playing Hyrule Warriors. I got it for Christmas last year, and somehow I’m still finding new quests to do? I purchased the expansion pack a few months back which was twenty bucks and it added about one billion more hours of game play. I feel like I’m kind of stuck now though. I need to level up characters I don’t care about before being able to beat levels that will unlock other levels but I still play regularly. I can’t say enough good things about this game. I wish all video games had this much content!
Aaaaand that’s that! What have you been listening to, watching or playing that’s worth talking about? I’m always looking for suggestions.
