Hump Day Homework: Reading English

The 3rd Hump Day Homework assignment this month - I think this whole weekly thing might finally be working out....

Listen To:  Ron Pope: Atlanta

Buy Me

It is no secret that I love Ron Pope (love meaning "can't go a day without listening to him")  - But Atlanta is by far his best work yet. Words cannot describe how awesome this album is, so just follow the link and get yourself a copy....

Highlights:  Tears of Blood and  One Grain of Sand, ...especially Tears of Blood, you can almost taste the Whiskey...  

Watch: An Education 

Watch Me

It might be because I'm a sucker for the 1960's, my girl-crush on Carey Mulligan, or the fact that I'm an English major myself (I can relate...)  but I'm in love with this movie.  I saw it for the first time this Sunday and am already craving a rewatch...

Read:  The Innocents

Read Me

I saw this  on the Juicy Couture Blog of all places, but it doesn't matter how I found this, all that matters is that I did. The Innocents is  a new  interpretation of Edith Wharton's The Age Of Innocence, that takes the characters from 19th century New York to modern day London and turns Countess Ellen into a Ellie, a 22-year-old model who returns home after being expelled from Columbia University.

If you're a fan of Wharton's novel, then this is a fun treat, but even if you're new to it you might enjoy Segal's take on the scandalous family drama.

Peace, Love and Sunshine


  1. We're def.gonna have to agree to disagree on that movie, lmao -- but I adoooore Ron Pope. :)

  2. RON POPE!!!!!! Our Song...I played it for Carson (and then repeated it like 300 times!)

    I haven't seen An Education (I just saw Never Let Me Go) but I really want too!
