Picture Me Reading Roundup (I)
On the blog this week:
Things have been busy with work, our long commutes have meant less time and energy for bloggy stuff. We are trying our best to catch up but we are way behind, even on our own memes such as Project Disney!
Literary Soundtrack: Persuasion (with swoon worthy pictures)
Weekly Highlights (Stuff I think is awesome):
I have been enjoying the new Sleepy Hollow television show the last few weeks that is has been on, it’s gothic aesthetic and the verbal sparring between the two leads I find really endearing( yes I totally ship them.) It doesn’t hurt that I really like the male lead, who played Mr. Bingley in Lost In Austen. The actor is really quite dashing but as Quinn pointed out it is odd that in episode three he is still wearing his civil war uniform, not that we are complaining. It does have very much the feel of Buffy Season one in that I don’t think it has hit it’s stride entirely yet, but I like the direction it is going. This week I have found some really cool fan art on pinterest that I think is worth checking out.
Speaking of awesome art I absolutely love this artist who has done fan art for Fangirl and Eleanor & Park. I think these are totally amazing! I like the kissing bits too!
As well I have been listening to the soundtrack to the musical for Daddy Long Legs ( one of my all time favorite books) by Paul Gordon. I didn’t realize the full version was on Itunes until Charlene posted about it this week. I have the older version with Paul Gordon singing the Jervis part, though I think he has a nice voice the more polished version that is available now is even better. I wish I could have seen this on the stage! Here is a clip from a production:
I was in the mood for something Dark and spooky! So far I am enjoying it, it even has a reference to Jane Eyre in the first few chapters!
