Well thank f***, it’s finally started feeling like fall. The leaves are finally changing (better late than never), the weather is turning gross, Halloween is looming…. And scary movies are on tv. What’s better than that??! (Just don’t say Christmas.)
-The Alias Grace mini series. (See below.)
-Dracula films on Sunday nights this month starring Christopher Lee. Campy at times with tons of bright red (fake) blood, but they are awesome.
-A demonstration of how Medieval people walked. Sounds like a drag, but it’s actually quite interesting. Apparently humans (depending on the region, that is) have gotten lazy at walking properly over the last Millenia.
The most beautiful thing to grace the Internet over the weekend. However, I did find out that this was created in August, so it’s been around for a bit. Also, I thought this was sung by Frank Sinatra, but nope! It’s actually sung by Matt Monro.
-The Carpenters’ “We’ve only Just Begun”. It randomly popped up in my recommended videos on Youtube a while back, and then I heard it on the radio in the car.
Alias Grace, by Margaret Atwood. So good! I only wish I could write as compellingly as Atwood can. I thought it would be dark and depressing (which it was at times) like The Handmaid’s Tale, but it had its happy moments, and it ended on a good note. I was watching the tv series along with it, and I was not disappointed with it either. Now I am finished, and once again without a compelling book to read. Hmm.
