Hump Day Homework: Let's Stay in Bed...

Need an excuse to spend the day in bed?  Well here are three hauntingly good reasons to do a little daydreaming... 

Watch: Elvis and Anabelle (2007)

Beautiful, funny, and haunting - these three words best describe this underrated masterpiece of a movie.  The trailer suggests that the love story between the young mortician and the pageant queen is a comedy, the premise of said pageant queen dying, coming back to life, and falling in love with the mortician makes it sound like a horror movie - but what the movie actually is is a love letter to life so beautiful it'll make any Nicholas Sparks romance look pale in comparison.

Read: Jeffrey Eugenides: The Virgin Suicides

Read Me
Oh the nights I spent in my playhouse trying to unfold the mystery of the entrancing Lisbon sisters... The narrators of this haunting but tender story about growing up, try to recall (and make sense of) a family tragedy that disturbed their quiet home town, Grosse Pointe, Michigan, during the 1970s. A book like this comes along once in a 100 years. It's the unique narrative style, the mystery that extends to the the narrators, that pulls you in, and will haunt you for years to come. What really happened? We will never know but neither will anyone else, and there's a strange comfort in that.

Listen To: Joshua Radin: Underwater 

Listen to me
The guy who brought you Paperweight has a new album out, and that's all you need to know. 

Peace, Love and Serendipity
