Television (Not a full list of what I watch):
(If you love to talk television, hit me up on Twitter and we can share feels together!)
Big Brother US18: I ACTUALLY HAVEN’T WATCHED IT YET LOL. Good thing is that I’m not keeping track of the spoiler feeds this time around so I really don’t know what’s up in the house other than the knowledge of a few houseguests.
Descendants of the Sun: If you are someone who vouched for this show…we need to have a chat about how/why this show is good. The writing is super cheeseballs.
Game of Thrones S6: LYANNA MORMONT FOR THE IRON THRONE. But
Hotel Hell S3: Drinking game: every time Gordon Ramsay says “stop it” take a drink.
iZombie S2: Finally finished season 2! I love this show so much.
Orphan Black S4: Can you believe Season 5 is going to be the expected FINAL season? TATIANA FOR EMMY OSCAR EVERYTHING. But really that last episode was all PROTECT COSIMA THE BIGGEST CINNAMON ROLL OF ALL.
Reign S3: Okay, deaths and terrible romances aside, when Mary actually does shit, it’s interesting (e.g. when she’s en-route back to Scotland).
Scream S2: Really hoping the killer is someone who will actually surprise me…
The Mindy Project S4: Still do not ship Jody and Mindy.
Spotlight: This movie is an explosion of khaki everything. Also it makes me want to be an investigative journalist!
Mr. Right: Why did I watch this film? Anna Kendrick being Anna Kendrick. Otherwise, it was pretty bad.
Captain America: Winter Soldier: The problem watching this film for the first time is that since I already saw the trailer for Civil War, I’m basically spoiled with the knowledge of a certain character. Soooooo.
(Maroon bolded names link to the track for easy peasy listening)
Game of Thrones – Light of the Seven: YES…THIS FUCKING SONG. UGH. I bow down to you, Ramin Djawadi.
Jonas Blue – Perfect Strangers (feat. J.P. Cooper): Tropical house dance. That is all.
Martin Jensen – Oops: If you’ve ever played any video game in the 90s, this track is like an homage to it. Straight up robotic sex, no vocal backing.
Cash Cash – Broken Drum (feat. Fitz of Fitz & The Tantrums): A jazzy dance track.
Kapslap – Felt This Good (feat. M. Bronx): Still listening to this song since last month oh my. It is officially summer and I am happy even if the sun continually singes my skin.
Solano – Rise Up (feat. Bitter Kiss, Life in Colour 2016 Anthem): Life in Colour is a musical festival with lots of colour paint. This is the anthem this year.
Attom – Better: Super chill. Super groovy.
Ryos – Where We Are (feat. Karra): I’m electronic music trash.
A great book hauling month. Standard blogging month with the caveat that I’m probably a month behind all of my comments LOL. Damn, I suck.
