Media of the Week

Book

Why yes, I have been reading, believe it or not. I picked up “Ladies-in-Waiting: Women Who Served Anne Boleyn” by Sylvia Barbara Soberton last week. It’s nonfiction. I’m enjoying it. I’m learning new things! I heard about it on one of the two Tudor podcasts I’ve mentioned before. I think I’m going to give up on fiction books for now, unless it’s something epic.

Series

Los Espookys is back with a new season! I wish we had rewatched season one before we watched the first episode of season two, but we’ve already watched season one twice. I’m just glad it’s back. Bip bip.

Movie

A+ to “All About Evil” for using a knitting needle as an implement of death with actual knitting attached! This film started a little flat, and we were concerned we weren’t going to get through it. But Bob and I both love Natasha Lyonne, so we hung in there. And boy, am I glad we did! It got weirder and weirder — so slowly it was almost imperceptible until it smacked you in the face. At one point I announced, “I officially love this movie!” Jack Donner was a creepy delight. Natasha Lyonne’s progression into stereotypical Hollywood starlet made me cackle. Thomas Dekker playing it straight kept it all real enough. Cassandra Peterson because Elvira. If you love weird horror, you’ll like it. Hang in there!

  1. We are of very different tastes when it comes to reading and movies. I tend to look for things that will calm me down and/or lift me spirits. About 50/50 fiction and non-fiction. Never have been into horror, true crime, war or other violence genre as I feel I am surrounded by all of that every day. This said, I do occasionally read science fiction and other fantasies. I just finished Cate Contes – Witch Hunt and did enjoy it, though I am sure you will roll your eyes. 🙄 None the less, I enjoy seeing what you are up to.

  2. Hmmm… not for me either but that’s what makes us all unique and different individuals. The Ladies In Waiting sounds quite interesting. I might have to check that one out. Enjoy your day Alissa 😀

  3. Thanks for the cool recommendations! All About Evil sounds pretty awesome, and also YAYYY for season 2 of Los Espookys! The Ladies in Waiting book also sounds interesting. I need to check out the Tudor podcast you talked about still 🙂
