In this exquisitely creepy French TV series, people long dead return to a small town with no memory of their deaths. Hard to place into one genre as it evokes so many emotions. Scary, thrilling, and intriguing!
Brighten the Corners by Pavement
An awesome reissue of one of Pavement’s beloved albums with added outtakes and radio session recordings. A more thoughtful and melodic album than their others.

Shadow Divers: the true adventure of two Americans who risked everything to solve one of the last mysteries of World War II by Robert Kurson
Shadow Divers follows two deep-wreck divers who find a World War II German submarine off the New Jersey coast in 1991. The diving is extremely dangerous, the journeys to Europe to determine the origin and identify the sub’s crew members equally compelling.
Danger UXB is an engrossing 1979 British TV series about a team of unexploded bomb defusers in World War II London. Anthony Andrews (Brideshead Revisited, 1981) and Judy Geeson (To Sir, With Love, 1967) star.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
British version of an action-filled, mind-twisting story. It provides more detail than the American version.
I think that the original foreign movie described more detail about the story than the English language remake. It is so action filled!
In honor of Earth Day, Wall-e is a movie everyone should see. It is a heartfelt love story, while also giving a glimpse of what our world will look like in the future if we don’t take care of it, or ourselves.
Heartbreaker by Ryan Adams
Listed as one of Rolling Stone’s top 100 albums of the 2000’s, Heartbreaker is a gritty country-folk album that exposed Ryan Adams as one of the top songwriters of his generation. My favorite tracks are: Oh My Sweet Carolina and In My Time of Need.
