Sunday Shuffle #282

I started a post on the books I've read since my last big books post...but I've gotten distracted reading The Lola Quartet, so it remains unfinished as of now. Meanwhile, I hope everyone is having a good three-day weekend. Let's get to today's ten...

4. Heaven Only Knows/Mary Weiss (3) - I dream about you all the time
5. Tonight I Have To Leave It/Shout Out Louds (3) - Jojo come up to me
6. Yawny at the Apocalyspe/Andrew Bird (3) - Instrumental
7. My All Time Doll/Elvis Costello (3) - When I was away I needed you so

Summer Projects

I have a few ideas for consistent content this summer...
Fringe Fridays - I started watching Fringe this past season, its 4th, and have since acquired the first 3 seasons. Since the show airs on Fridays, I thought I would post about the episodes I managed to watch in a given week on that day. I hope to have a true introductory post up this coming Friday.
Unwritten Month - When I decided this spring that I was going back to consuming my comics in collections, I went back and bought all 5 trades of The Unwritten. I read the contents of the first 4 volumes as they were coming out monthly but the 5th volume is all new to me. As the story is fairly complex, I thought I would read each trade again and write about it. The 5 volumes collect 30 issues, so I thought I would write about an issue a day in June. Could be an interesting experiment.
Film School - This list of movies I haven't seen is quite long, longer than one might expect from a pop-culture nerd, but I've always put books, co…

Sunday Shuffle #281

I had a lot of events this past week - running my first 5K, attending a fantastic graduation party thrown for me by my wife and mother, getting sick, and more. There is more to come today and tomorrow with graduation and after that, things should start to settle back down with the end of the school year rapidly approaching. So, another week with just a Sunday Shuffle and plans to post more often starting later this week. For now, let's get to today's ten...

Sunday Shuffle #280

I certainly meant to get a post or two up during the week but my schedule was fairly busy - a band concert, watching season finales with friends, and a trip to Indianapolis for Butler's graduation all competed for my time. I do hope this week is a little better, though next weekend will definitely be a busy one. In any event, it's time for today's ten...

Sunday Shuffle #279

This should be the last of this run of only Sunday Shuffles and no other posts because I have finished my paper and now have nothing left to do but graduate from college in a couple weeks. I have so much to read and watch and write about that I almost don't know where to begin but I hope to post a couple times a week going forward. We are going to see THE AVENGERS in less than 2 hours and I can't wait. Meanwhile, let's see what pops up on shuffle...
