"Monocycle With Leandra Medine" A podcast by Man Repeller.
These episodes are very short, usually about 10 minutes long, but hit you with some truth, some reality and most often some humor. I pretty much love everything Medine (and Man Repeller) does, so this comes as no surprise.
Laugh, cry, think... listen to it.
I finished "Modern Lovers" on Saturday, so I am ready for my next book. I've got two sitting on my bedside table but cannot decide which one to begin first.
"All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr - "the beautiful, stunningly ambitious instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II."
"When Breath Becomes Air" by Paul Kalanithi - "this inspiring, exquisitely observed memoir finds hope and beauty in the face of insurmountable odds as an idealistic young neurosurgeon attempts to answer the question What makes a life worth living?"
Oatmeal cookies. Specifically "Alyssa's Healthy Vegan Bites."
I bought this pack of cookies on a whim from Publix. A week later I went back for two more packages. Full of oats, cranberries, nuts, cinnamon, coconut and more, they aren't too sweet and have been a perfect after-lunch snack they doesn't make me feel horrible.
They pair perfectly with an iced coffee with almond milk, too. I want to try the other flavors--dark chocolate almond sounds like something I would love.
Adidas SUPERNOVA SEQUENCE BOOST 8 SHOES.
A mouthful of a title.
About every six months I get a new pair of running shoes. This is not a shoe addiction thing, but due to the fact that I wear them out quickly. I have read that one should replace their shoes after 400 to 500 miles. I easily log 1,500 miles a year. Sorry, is this humblebragging?
Anyways, I got a new pair of Adidas recently, and though I have no brand loyalty, these are the most comfortable pair I have worn in years. I feel a definite renewed spring in my step, or jog. Plus, Adidas always look chic. I've always pined after the Stella McCartney x Adidas collaboration pieces.
On Saturday I saw the new Todd Solondz movie "Weiner-Dog."
It was funny, strange, disturbing, sweet and absurd. The story of various characters linked together by an adorable dachshund, the cast was superb: Ellen Burstyn, Kieran Culkin, Julie Delpy, Danny DeVito, Greta Gerwig, Tracy Letts and Zosia Mamet.
We saw it in a small, local theatre with a dozen or so other viewers, and the laughter from a particular group up front made me like it even more. The colors, typography and score were just right, too.
I am in perpetual want of more beautiful shoes. The Loeffler Randall newsletters have been taunting me lately. These creations are works of art. I'll let the images do the talking.
