Semper Femina – Laura Marling [ALBUM]
Lots to listen to with this album, and I’ve been listening closely this past week. Thanks to my friend Josh for recommending this one to me.
Wayne Moss is one of those guitar players you didn’t know you knew. As one of Nashville busiest session players, his contribution to popular music is massive. For example: “Pretty Woman,” “Only Daddy That’ll Walk The Line,” and Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde. Thanks to Barry Walsh for giving me a copy of this book.
Well done origin story of the new Ms. Marvel character, passing the title over from Carol Danvers to Kamala Khan. I’m about halfway through the book as I write this, so I can’t give it a full review, but so far I’m digging it.
I just love Solnit’s writing. This book opens with a great essay about that question women get asked all the time – and the assumptions behind it. I think I’ll be gifting this book a lot.
The Handmaid’s Tale [TV SERIES]
I’m almost finished reading the book, but I couldn’t wait to start watching the show. Because the show adds so much more to the story (most notably: you get to see things outside of Offred’s perspective), I think going between the show and the book works well.
