Reading The latest, (and last?!), Sookie Stackhouse book - Dead Ever After. I'm about a quarter of the way through it, and before I even started it I dreaded that it wasn't going to end the series the way I wanted it to, which bums me out, but now I'm pretty much convinced it won't end how I like. Although it could surprise me, of course. I'm sad it's the last Sookie book.
Watching The Great Gatsby. Okay... I know I'm in the minority here, but, I really liked it! I thought it was an interesting take on the book, while still staying pretty true to the story, (although not 100% of course). But I love Baz Luhrmann movies. I can probably recite every line to Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rogue. Singing included. I also have a deep love for Leo, of course, so I was pretty much guaranteed to like this movie even before seeing it.
Listening We saw The Killers last week here live, and it was an amazing show! It was a very fun, energetic performance. As I tend to do after seeing someone live, whether new to me or not, I've been enjoying their catalogue of music pretty much every day. It's like rediscovering their music all over again. My favorite that they did live was actually "All These Things That I've Done", which surprised me, since it wasn't one I particularly loved before.
Loving My Dad randomly showed up to my door a couple weeks ago with a Sirius XM SkyDock. I have been wanting satellite radio in my car for ages, especially since I can't stand half of what I hear on the local radio, and I long ago stopped burning mixed CDs for my car. It was a very welcome surprise! It's awesome because it plays through my iPhone, which I didn't know was even available, (and, bonus, it charges my phone for me while I'm driving around). So in addition to re-listening to The Killers, I've also been listening to lots of new stuff on that sweet little baby.
Anticipating Neon Desert Music Fest! It's on the 25th, so just barely more than a week away, and one of my favorite bands is playing this year - Dragonette! I'm so excited to get to see them play live again, and I'm looking forward to hearing all the other new-to-me bands that day, too.
