There are so many amazing people on this list, but I’m only going to discuss a couple of my favorites. First, have I mentioned how awesome John Greene is? Like here and here and here and here and here and here and here? Well, it turns out I’m not the only one who thinks so. […]Read More Guess Who’s on Time Magazine’s Top 100 List?
I recently posted that Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s Kubla Khan is my favorite poem. Then I found this clip of Benedict Cumberbatch reading it. Although the cadence and pace are not the same as the way I typically read it, which is really similar to the way my college professors did, the change in pace shifted my […]Read More Kubla Khan Read by Benedict Cumberbatch
Wow, I totally meant to post this last week. Although, now that I think about it, today works better. On the heels of Saturday’s Imagine Dragons concert, it seems fitting to show off my fine city. National Geographic wrote an article, Tulsa: Tailor-Made for Music. I’ve raved about Cain’s Ballroom before, and I’m sure I’ll do […]Read More Tulsa Makes News for Music
I went to see more pretty things. You may have noticed in my post about the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa, I like art. Well, maybe it was in my posts about art shows that you figured that out, or maybe you just discovered that I lack self-control when it comes to art. I would like […]Read More More pretty things….Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
Are you a fan of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander? I am. Starz released a preview of their original series based on the novels. Right now, I don’t even get Starz, but if I can follow Claire and Jamie on screen? It could totally be worth it! Watching this, I remember how much I love these books! I think […]Read More Outlander on Starz Preview
I got a text just before we arrived at Circle Cinema for the Nation Theatre Live broadcast of Coriolanus starring Tom Hiddleston as Caius Martius Coriolanus and Mark Gatiss as Menenius. “It’s packed already,” the text read. Truthfully, I wondered how my friend defined “packed”. Every show I’d seen to that point had filled maybe half the […]Read More Coriolanus
I get these Daily Rumpus emails by Stephen Elliott, and Saturday he linked to this video on The Rumpus site. The Gap by Ira Glass came at a good time. Reading over the short stories I’m working on, and recent drawings left me with the it’s-all-crap feeling. All the creative types I know suffer through […]Read More For Those in Doubt…Including Me
Oh, the things I come across on the internet. Today, I found a link to all kinds of amazing things people have built with LEGO’s…hmmmm…I have some building to do! ‘Til next time, JessicaRead More More LEGOs!
Recently, my Facebook feed has been inundated with content and videos from Upworthy, and I watch some of them. For the most part, I realize that these are a time suck. Maybe I get a bit of good news or get outraged over an injustice, but on the whole were they really worth my time? […]Read More Oh No…I’m Getting Ideas Again
Recently, I attended a private party at Pinot’s Palette, a place where you make a little art while you drink a little wine. A co-worker organized a party and invited us to bring some people and join in for an evening of painting and wine drinking. This was not my first trip to Pinot’s Palette. Some of […]Read More The Imperfections Are Where the Love Lives
