Pop Culture Wednesday

This week is just another crazy ride of medication changes, so it only makes sense that I try to soak up the pop culture scene.

Criminal Minds:

I have been soaking this show up like a sponge over the last week! I've watched the entirety of Season 5!  I have had an obsession with cop shows from a very early age, and it apparently isn't stopping anytime soon - especially as my health is being so volatile.  I am moderately in love with Reed (FYI).  The whole show fascinates me though, to view what could possibly going on in the minds of some of the world's most hardened criminals.


This was ADORABLE!  I can't believe I have managed to go this long in my life without checking out this particular Woody Allen movie :).  He is cryogenically frozen and released into the most hilariously bizarre totalitarian society.  Also, I'm not sure if Diane Keaton has ever been more cute than in this movie.

Jeff Buckley:

This has been my CD of choice in my late night insomnia hours these days.  Jeff Buckley was a rare treat in the music world and GRACE is a mind-blowing experience.  Mojo Pin, Grace, Lover You Should Have Come Over, and of course his version of Hallelujah are enough to make my ears melt along with my heart.

What have you been watching and listening to this week?  I've been having a cry-fest, so I don't know whether to wallow in the sad stuff or try to force myself into laughter!  Recommendations please!

I've made it to season 3 of Farscape and season 2 of Pushing Daisies. I've watched so many movies I can't remember the names of them all. I did like an odd french movie called Amelie. I watched an old Diane Lane and John Cusak movie, Must Love Dogs, which I liked. Also saw Mrs. Whitmore. Nice piece of fluff with Brendan Fraser and Shirley MacLaine. Watched Confession of a Shopaholic. YUCK!! Horrible movie. Don't bother except the lead guy is cute. Can't remember any more. Brain isn't working well today. I always try to finish my day with Craig Fergeson. He makes me laugh.

Perhaps Antonio DeMasio's "The Feeling of What Happens" would be of interest to you. He's a magnificent writer and I learned a lot about myself and how people react from this book. I think you would get a lot out of it, Annie-Banannie. (I have a niece named Anna.)

I also have been watching a lot of Criminal Minds. (And totally agree with the Reed thing.) Also, Mad Men.

I found your blog by chance and enjoyed my visit. I am a huge Criminal Minds fan along with Top Chef, Project Runway and Grey's Anatomy.

This week TV shows I'm into are NCIS and SVU (as always). I watched the movie Salt yesterday and liked it. Amazingly I'm one of the few people in the world who haven't seen many Angelina movies but thought she was pretty cool. Right now I'm listening to Ella Fitzgerald. Such cool old music.
