12:18 pm - Sunday Five Things, Post #69
1) I had not heard that Elvis Costello has written an autobiography! But he has! This Guardian interview has the scoop.

2) "Everyday I Write The Book." Will I ever get tired of that song? Survey says NO.

3) The style blogger That's Not My Age has linked to this brief interview/photo-story of professor of social work Lyn Slater and her style. Not my aesthetic, but cool as hell.

4) Should I see Crimson Peak? Cons: am wimp about horror films. Pros: it's supposed to be more Gothic romance (which I enjoy) than horror; Mr Tom Hiddleston. Am contemplating; anyone who's seen it should chime in.

5) Some days, it's soothing just to meditate on the wonder of Peter Capaldi's hair.

May your Sunday be full of far more than 5 good things!

In re 5, YES. All the yes. So very much yes.

Happy blustery day, L!

And a happy day beachside to you! May the Power of P Cap's hair be with you. :)

Hugs!

Roz saw it and said it was good and Del Toro rather than horror if that helps. I had to pass on it due to the lungs.

Hmm. That does help. I'll try to see it next weekend, then.

Hugs and healing, mate.

I wish I had time to see Crimson Peak this weekend. The only up side to this is that by the time I get around to seeing it, it might end up at my favorite neighborhood movie theater.

I'm looking forward to reading the Elvis Costello autobiography, but first I need to read the new Patti Smith memoir!

Yeah, I missed this weekend (mainly because I had to recover from the previous week).

Cheers, hugs, and cool books about rock-and-roll!

Oh that professor's style is indeed cool as hell. I want to be her when I grow up.

And I want to see Crimson Peak but it looks like I will have to go solo. Which I really don't mind - I don't have to share the popcorn that way. ;-) If only I can find the time. Sigh.

You could rock that style, my friend! I could see it!

Yeah, the time thing is keeping me from the movie too. Alas. Alas.

Hugs hugs!

I'd forgotten that "Everyday I Write the Book" was a song!

I'm such a fraidy cat, I hadn't even contemplated Crimson Peak as a possibility. Perhaps it is...

Didn't I put it on All the Mix-CDs back in the day? :)

I had written off Crimson Peak too, but the overwhelming critical and fan reaction is that a) it's Gothic Romance, Rebecca with more gore, and b) it's not that scary. So I am contemplating for next weekend.

Hugs hugs!

Cool links as always...

As for Sunday, does 12 hours of wading through a bookstore in Phoenix count? A sudden, whimsical drive down on Saturday (mostly) to get a jump on the other dealers who might want to cash in on the special sale prices led us through a rainstorm and a major truck crash delay over Donner Pass, followed by a wrong turn in the Nevada desert that sent us off down 395 along the eastern side of Yosemite (gorgeous, I'd never been along that stretch of highway) brought us to Blythe (sadly misnamed) by 10pm so we finished the drive on Sunday morning. And 5 minutes after we arrived at the shop, a friend and fellow dealer drove into the parking lot, having left southern Oregon (6 hours to our north) at least 5 hours after we left home.

It's been quite the adventure. The cat is glad we're home.

Oh my God, what a horror that trip must have been! Gaah!

It was actually quite fun most of the way and we saw parts of both states we hadn't seen before...far too much driving, of course.

hugs and happy midweek to you!
