Button Sunday

This post was overdue. Blame Flickr and WordPress. Or Mercury could be culpable, too, and it’s always fun to blame things on a planet other than our own.

One of the groups I watch on Flickr is Wardrobe Remix. I like seeing how “regular” people put their fashion together and where it comes from, especially the people who are able to do so much with thrifted pieces. I’m using their format from now on to give credit (and links, where possible) to those who give me things that later show up on this blog. For example:

Coffee cup–Timothy J. Lambert

Meanwhile, tell me in comments, please, what are you reading? I’m reading Gail Levin’s Lee Krasner: A Biography.

I put “regular” in quotation marks, above, because I find everyone extraordinary. I’m just noting the difference between the people who post their photos to this group and famous fashionistas.

  1. Just finished Jeffrey Ricker’s Detours *****
    Currently 1/3 of the way through George R. R. Martin’s CLASH OF KINGS ****
    And next up (Dean) Miranda James’ FILE M FOR MURDER

  2. Had a marathon read of The Hunger Games trilogy over the weekend a couple of weeks ago. Recently finished Pity The Billionaire by Thomas Frank, the same guy who wrote What’s The Matter With Kansas (which, if you haven’t read, you must); and Red, a short story collection edited by Kris Goldsmith. Both were giveaways from either Goodreads or LibraryThing. I heart free books.

    Currently reading Kim Stanley Robinson again. I’m a glutton for punishment, I guess. But The Years of Rice and Salt has such as intriguing alternate history premise involving my favorite disease, I couldn’t resist. What if the Black Death in the 14th century had wiped out 99% instead of 25-33% (depending on which source you read) of the world’s population, leaving Europe desolate and the majority of survivors in Asia? Asia settles the rest of the world…

    Two more freebies from Goodreads/LibraryThing are waiting: Losing Clementine by Ashley Ream; and A Vacation On The Island of Ex-Boyfriends by Stacy Bierlein.

      1. That’s why I read it, too. I’ll go see it once the initial crush is over. But I can’t wait too long. Movies don’t stay at our multiplex more than a couple of weeks, maybe a month. I missed the new Robert Downey/Sherlock Holmes movie because of not paying attention. *pout*

        1. Yeah, I probably won’t try opening weekend. But that is an advantage of living in a huge city–stuff is almost always playing somewhere.

  3. Well, I’m not to be trusted in a record or CD store. If I had my way, I’d buy the whole store. Last year, I added my parents’ “Dial M for Music” by Ferrante and Teicher to my collection after quite a lot of cleaning.

    Reading? Nothing non-work-related-or-grad-school-related. But, people at work have been totally obsessed with hunger games though I can’t say why. I’m not keen on the film. I’ve been getting the urge to re-read Wicked despite the fact it took me a year to get through it the first time, but that may be because I’m staying at a hotel with 57 channels and nothin’ on*.

    This month’s Wired magazine caught my eye, and I felt it worth mentioning. because it has a cover story about a spy centere in Utah and Facebook going public.

    * except repeats of The Wizard of Oz, Green Lantern and Star Trek Generations which seems oddly placed for St. Patrick’s Day except for that last bit about a saucer totally demolishing the forest of a planet and no shots of The Federation planting trees, but rather a sense of just leaving it all behind them.

    1. I started reading Wicked once, but I think it belonged to someone else and I had to leave it. Maybe I should try again.
