On A Few of My Favourite Things

Mister Buttons

It’s a bit too ear­ly to put togeth­er a year­ly recap, but I can’t think of any­thing else to blog about so this will have to do it. Just think of it as a list of rec­om­men­da­tions rather than a year­ly recap.

Book: Won­der When You’ll Miss Me by Aman­da Davis. This book is about revenge and leav­ing your dark past behind and start­ing anew (join­ing a cir­cus!). It’s heart­break­ing and hope­ful at the same time. I bor­rowed this book from our local library but I wish I owned it so I could re-read it any­time I want. It’s that good.

Movie: Young at Heart, direct­ed by Stephen Walk­er. This doc­u­men­tary proves that senior cit­i­zens, even the octo­ge­nar­i­ans, can rock-and-roll as hard as the rest of us. These senior cit­i­zens who belong to a cho­rus called Young at Heart will show you how to grow old grace­ful­ly with music.

Music: I can’t decide which band I like the most but Fleet Fox­es, Bon Iver, and Bower­birds are the bands that I dis­cov­ered this year and real­ly enjoy. None of them is Cana­di­an but I think I’ve writ­ten enough about Cana­di­an artists as it is.

If you have any books, movies, or bands/artists you’d like to rec­om­mend, please post it in the com­ment and I’ll check it out. Bor­ing post, huh? Hope­ful­ly I’ll be more inter­est­ing tomor­row, but prob­a­bly not! Hehe.

  1. After I’m done with my text­books, I plan to read Night (Ellie Wiesel), a sear­ing account of a man detained at a Nazi con­cen­tra­tion camp.

  2. speak­ing of chee­tos… I miss chi­ki snack balls bad (only rasa ayam)!
    …and I just found out today chi­ki is from frito­lay??

  3. I have such a huge pile of books wait­ing for me to fin­ish uni (well, not so much a pile as a huge book­case full) and I can’t wait — all I’ve read recent­ly is about ape “lan­guage”, abstract phonol­o­gy and stats!
    But at least I can lis­ten to music while I work, and I rec­om­mend Beth Row­ley — she’s my cur­rent study­ing music! The album’s called Lit­tle Dream­er, and it’s a huge grow­er.
