What Else Have I Been Up To

There are two new posts of mine up on Tell-Tale TV!

The first post is a Pretty Little Liars review where the Liars try to figure out exactly what is going on in Rosewood. Isn’t that just the ongoing mystery? Sometimes I swear that town was built on a big Indian burial ground.

The second is an Orange is the New Black review featuring the return of one character and a comical amount of illegal activity in Litchfield. It dealt with some very heavy material. You have been warned.

My continuing coverage of both these shows will continue throughout the summer.

From the Blogosphere:

Clare Huston @ Art and Soul shares a recipe for Ice Cream Cone Cakes that took me back to celebrating my birthday in elementary school.

Esther @ Chapter Adventures talks about reading poetry and gives you some tips to help you get started.

Jenna @ Reading with Jenna discusses Dramoine and how that has affected her reading preferences.  It’s one of those ships that people seem to either love or hate. I have to admit I have a little soft spot for it.

Around the Internet

I have to say that I love Samantha Bee’s monologue about “Brexit” including a surprise guest appearance by David Tennant and lots of Doctor Who references. So whether you really just want a dose of Doctor Who jokes or you are ringing your hands over the November elections, you should watch it!

NPR posted this article about how personalities change over the course of our lifetime, usually for the better. So what I take away from this is 1) people do change and 2) all of those personality assessments I took as part of a job interview should be invalidated.

Check out this article from The Establishment (not that Establishment) about knitting getting political in Indonesia. Not sure I ever saw knitting as a political statement, but this kind of opens my eyes.

The New Yorker published a Shouts & Murmurs piece called My Twenties: A Retrospective by Catherine Mevs. I found it very amusing, as someone who is now just over halfway through her twenties.

The New York Times wrote about a mood-ring ingredient that is now in demand for cocktails. The butterfly pea flower contributes a color to cocktail offered at 492, a restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina.

This article on the wife of William S. Burroughs, Poet Joan Vollmer, and the shooting that led to her death. Leela Ginelle, for B*tch Media, gives an in depth review of how the shooting was used to enhance his mystique. Not cool.

  1. Thank you for featuring my post here! 🙂
    I’m really glad you enjoyed Eleanor and Park. It’s been on my to read list for a long time now. I’ve enjoyed the other books by Rainbow Rowell I’ve read, and I’m saving E&P for some time I need to read something cute.


  2. I love the layout of this week-in-review post! I often struggle with how to talk about things that don’t justify 300 words, but that I still want to mention anyway. I’m not a fan of Dramione, although I understand it in theory, but I love that to linked to it so I can better understand why it’s supported.
