Since we're a tight-knit little community here, I occasionally like to ask you about, well, life stuff! It doesn't always have to be about makeup. right? My blog, my rules! This week's question is a fun one that I hope you'll take a moment to answer. I love getting inspiration from you, so I can't wait to see your responses!
What are you watching, reading, and listening to these days?
Here's my response:
For current television, I'm obsessed with Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead (that season finale though!). I'm also waiting (impatiently) for the new season of Black Mirror to start on Netflix. For Netflix/Amazon on-demand stuff, I just finished watching the entire run of Gilmore Girls for the very first time (thanks to Kelly of Vampy Varnish, who urged me to give it a try) and I took it HARD when it ended. I literally didn't know what to do with myself and found that no other series on Netflix or Amazon could fill the void. I cannot WAIT for the revival episodes of Gilmore Girls to start airing on Netflix this year (have you seen the new on-set pics? If not, click HERE)! Although I'm so bummed that Sookie won't be a part of the new episodes.
I just finished probably my fourth re-read of A Confederacy of Dunces and also Wise Blood (I'm a huge fan of Southern Gothic). But I'm taking a break from Southern Gothic for a bit and I just now started Suite Francaise.
I always have Queens of the Stone Age on at some point in the day, and there's always an 80s New Wave mix or two on heavy rotation on my Spotify and Pandora, as well as lots of Yacht Rock and 80s & 90s R&B/Soul. But right now my boyfriend and I are kind of obsessed with the micro-genre called Vaporwave. If you've never heard of it, think 80s tv commercial jingles + elevator music mixed with vintage video game and computer blips, all distorted, twisted, and slowed down a bit. It's totally weird, but I find that it's both depressing and nostalgic (in a good way) at the same time. Not for everyone, but I'm loving it right now. You can check one of the many YouTube mixes HERE (warning: the thumbnail image of 80s artwork is slightly NSFW).
