A new Mash of the Titans has dropped and I am loving it. You may remember me loving the 7th album, and when I found out the release date of the 8th I was so excited! I am pleased to let you know, the 8th is amazing!
I am particularly loving ‘Mama Did Something Bad,’ ‘Dividely,’ ‘Blurred Ice,’ and ‘It’s Gonna Be ME!’ All of the mashup albums are available for free, so there is no reason why you shouldn’t be out there enjoying the music ❤
When did May sneak up on us? I cannot understand how fast this year is going 😱 Next thing you’ll be telling me it’s Winter tomorrow and I that need to pull out the flannelette sheets and heaters – oh wait, a cold snap has hit and it’s already freezing ❄☃ Let it be known that I already miss summer 😭🌞
Years ago, when my partner and I first got together we were watching Star Trek: Next Generation and each remarked how we had never seen the original series, despite being fans of the show. This conversation soon evolved to us promising ourselves that we would one day make our way through the whole series in chronological order.
I hope everyone has enjoyed the month of romance themed posts ❤ I promise next month isn’t as focused on the genre, however you’re almost always guaranteed to find a romance themed post at least once a month. So hopefully you didn’t hate it too much 😋
Captain Underpants Series by Dav Pilkey.
Okay, so I haven’t read these books since I was a kid and eagerly awaiting each new publication. It recently came to my attention that my library had the complete collection on one of our eBook apps.
So needless to say, I borrowed them all and started devouring them over the course of this month. They’re just as great as I remember, so fun, and so excellently self referential.
The first month of 2019 has been good and bad. I managed to achieve a bunch so far this year in regards to getting blog posts up and ready as well as tackling my Netgalley ARC list. However, it’s been tough at work with a staff member who I worked closely with, suddenly passing away over the holiday break.
Unfortunately I was unable to attend her funeral as there were too many staff attending for everyone to be able to go 😢 It has made returning to work very bittersweet and I have found myself at times upset and short tempted while working with the public. So just remember everyone that library staff are people too and your behaviour does affect them.
*Looking at you snooty lady who wouldn’t take no for an answer when I wouldn’t sign her granddaughter up to the library (you’re not the legal guardian and didn’t have any ID – so no you weren’t entitled to a card just because) and angry dude who lost ‘two years of work’ when the 15 minute computer turned off when the time ran out (it totally gave you repeated warnings and yelling at me solved nothing). 😓😅 Rant over.
Moving on, below are some of the things I have been interacting with and enjoying over the month 😃
Brooklyn 99 – Season 5.
Omg, Brooklyn 99 just keeps getting better! There were so many amazing moments in this season, I can’t pick a favourite buuut stand outs were:
Rosa coming out as bisexual – that speech by Jake while he was pretending to be Rosa coming out to her parents had me tearing up. So great to see some bisexual representation ❤
The wedding vows – Man, I was emotional throughout the whole season but I was in tears and sob laughing during the wedding scene. ‘Your butt. Your butt is the bomb’ was so sweet and funny and just encapsulates why I love those two as a couple.
That interrogation episode – If you haven’t seen it check out the episode ‘The Box.’ Such an amazing episode!
Joel McHale, best known for his role in Community, heads back to his roots and hosts a weekly commentary show. The McHale Show offers humourous commentary on the news, social media, reality television, and as a new feature Netflix shows. Similar to his old show, The Soup, McHale delivers jokes, sketches, and even feuds with other shows.
The Soup was a show I watched every week and I was so sad when it came to an end, so the return of Joel McHale to a similar show is great news! I am loving the return of the show and Netflix seems to have given the writers and McHale more freedom. If you have a chance, you should check out an episode of the show. It’s always good to watch the episodes as soon as you can, they tend to be more relevant that way.
Aside from my Small Snippet of 2017, this is my first Small Snippet post that features a month in a little over a year and a half. Lots of things have happened in between and I have experienced a variety of different and interesting entertainments. However, starting off the year, my 2018 February has been a fun one.
I will start off by saying that I have no idea who the author of this book is, only that they have a YouTube channel. So with absolutely no background information, I can say that I absolutely adore the poems in this book. They’re funny, modern, and sometimes insightful.
It’s been a long time since I wrote one of these and in that time a lot of things have caught my attention. I thought I’d go easy on myself and stick to the three item format. So the below items have either been important throughout the year or are just vague enough for me to include.
I have an, at times, very embarrassing obsession with cartoons. While I may enjoy watching the shows, I’m not always forthcoming with admitting it to people. However with Home Adventures with Tip and Oh, I will shout my love from the rooftops!
Based on the Dreamworks movie, Home, the show expands the story, characters, and universe of the movie. Do not judge the cartoon by the movie, where Home was somewhat vapid and uninspiring, Home Adventures with Tip and Oh is a humourous and sweet show.
Once again we find ourselves with a large gap in between posts, and once again I offer the same excuse. I’m just so tired. Due to this posts often get put so way behind on my priorities, but fret not you’ll get random posts.
Last month was a bit of a blur for me but there were some stand outs amongst the noise.
Sia – This is Acting
I have always been aware of Sia, especially her early work within Australia, however her last album and this new one have grabbed my attention. Where 1,000 Forms of Fear was a evolution of her personal style, This is Acting is Sia hitting her mark. The album is solid from start to end, I can say that I am a fan of every song on the album and often find myself sneaking a headphone in and listening to it at work.
