There’s no doubt you might have noticed I spend a lot of time watching films. Back in the day I would post monthly recaps of all the films that I’ve consumed. These days I prefer searching out good old classic. Films are the only category that I have overall favourites: Breakfast at Tiffany’s (because I’m a sucker for romance) and the entire Scream series (mostly the first one because of the inner film criticism that I could talk about for days – that I have spoken about for days). Ghost-face is the love of my life.
This week I’ve also seen How To Train Your Dragon 2 and that new X-Men in theatres. And on my to-watch list are Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and to force Coen to experience to glory that is The Mexican.
While I may be a Creative Writing and English Lit student I’ve fallen
into a horrid habit of not reading outside of my necessary reading list
during the semester. Since I’m technically on my break (still one
daunting essay left to finish) I’ve started reading again. I’ve re-read Harry Potter one because it’s the literary equivalent of the love of my life and I’ve just started Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
I spend all of my time playing Suduku, Spider Solitare and Space Inavders. My whole family, Coen inclusive, are all massive MMORPG players but the closest I’ve ever gotten are the classics. It’s strange when there’s so much pressure to play games in your home, you end up not finding them fun. Plus, they’re great for…
Listening to Podcasts
I never thought I would get into Podcasts. I’m still a newcomer to the realm. If you have any suggestion I automatically need-to-know-please. My favourites are Welcome to Night Vale and The Drunkenpeasant’s Popdcast (though I can’t stand anything they say about Feminism, that’s just a warning).
Looking up Vegan Recipes
The kind of recipes I love seem to be far and few between. Vegan? No more than four steps? Limited amount of chopping? Less than three ingredients? Moderately healthy? If so, we have a winner. Recent trials have been this Paleo Curry Cauliflower (though I use Peanut oil rather than Coconut oil) and general attempts at battling sweet potato.
Much faster to read than novels, and considerably cheaper! Coen bought me Cody Weber’s new poetry collection (that comes with a PDF of his ridiculously lovely photography). He’s a YouTuber if you weren’t around the last time I mentioned him, and has some lovely poerty, political and life video’s up on his channel, Saturnine Films here. His work, poetry, music and photographs, are being sold ridiculously cheap. But if you don’t like Travel Poetry – I know of lot of people, myself included, don’t – you won’t like the Postcard From… collection that I bought. Though, I have some favourites: Darwin and Friends. Most of his work is a dollar.
I was also emailed by that writer I reviewed here to review his book of poetry. I’ve only skimmed over a few. But after this semester of poetry I couldn’t believe his incredible ability at rhyme schemes. They seem perfect for children. Check it out here, it’s only a dollar.
I think I have sufficiently spoken about nonsensical things for long enough. It’s time for you to tell me your favourites. What do you do when you aren’t doing the things that you always, well, do? Did that make sense? You get the picture, I’m sure.
