March 2018 Adventures


This playlist is mostly cushion around those two new Janelle Monáe songs. Damn.

Movie

Rebel Without a Cause: Special Edition**

The only movie I watched was Tommy Wiseau’s favorite film and the inspiration for much of his acting. I hate to admit that Tommy pretty much nailed his imitation. Maybe the writing is to blame, but this film is not what I expected–joke’s on me I guess.
James Dean

Books

I’ve already got reviews up for The Merry Spinster and I’ll Be Gone in the Dark posted here. They were both excellent books, and if you haven’t read them yet, you should really consider it.

In an effort to read more entertaining books, I also read two thrillers: A Dark Lure* by Loreth Ann White and The Woman in the Window: A Novel* by A.J. Finn.They’re both entertaining, somewhat formulaic thrillers. I listened to both as audiobooks, and had a little bit of a hard time acclimating to the second title’s very unlikable main character. But I got there. And A Dark Lure is on Kindle Unlimited, so that’s an easy sell.A Dark Lure and The Woman in the Window Covers

A (Late) Adventure

Ok, so this didn’t happen in March, per se, but I finally visited one of Oregon’s beloved flower farms: Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm. Every year I get fomo from seeing fellow Oregon-dwellers surrounded by tulips, daffodils, and any number of bulb-based flower. This year, I decided I wasn’t going to be left out. Enjoy a few pictures that I took with my Nikon below. And please be patient with me. I’m still pretty new to shooting in manual, and apparently I need a new glasses prescription because most of these *did not* look blurry when I first reviewed them.
