Good Kids by Ben Nugent – a coming-of-age-loss-of-innocence tale about two people who made each other a promise in early days and now … The theme and voice reminds me a bit of “Adults” by Alison Espach. “Okay, we’re grown up … now what?”
Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan – a short story written by a Google futurist is expanded into a novel with (so far) no sign of stretch marks. Love of a girl, love of books, and love of computers, wrapped up in a quest for the ultimate. You can catch the short story on Escape Pod.
Boys & Girls by Alabama Shakes. Love this album. Bluesy rock goodness from Georgia. Right up there with peaches and REM.
77 by the Talking Heads. The debut of one of my favorite bands. "Psycho Killer." ‘Nuff said.
I’m nearly happy with the second act of the Mercury novella.
Snowgaritas – take your favorite margarita recipe and replace the ice with snow. A seasonal specialty.
Double Divas -- Two friends save relationships and keep the "girls" comfortable with their lingerie shop outside Atlanta. A series on Lifetime.
