Beats & Books

Yes, there wasn’t a music post this week (or last week I think too) and book reviews haven’t been completed yet either.  Reason being is that I haven’t come across anything new that has inspired me and for books I am caught up in a series by J.R. Ward and it’s lovely vampire gothic erotica but I doubt anyone is very intersted in reviews on what is basically a romance novel.  All I can say is if you want a book series to get you hot and bothered then J.R. Ward is your lady.  I think I am on book 7 or 8…I lost count but It’s called Lover Enshrined and it’s great.  I know my husband loves it when I put down the book and jump on top of him to bite his neck and take him.  He doesn’t mind the effects of the books! LOL.

So music!  Songs that are inspiring me right now are a little dark and gothy
Mirah – The Garden

Also Apocalyptica featuring Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace – I Don’t Care (they don’t allow me to embed, so click through for their lovely song). I REALLY dig how they “play” the women like Cellos. Hot!

Blue Foundation – Eyes on Fire

Kristin Hersch – Me & My Charms

Random Bits of Happy

Rollerderby!  Duval!

*Thursday I popped into a Bealls discount outlet looking for one thing and didn’t find it but came out with a super cute 50’s style bathing suit, turquoise flip flops and two hair bands for under $35.

*Friday I spent the day in said bathing suit laying by the pool (thanks to a friend copying their complex pool key for us) listening to tunes and reading a book. An indulgent day that I savored.

*I went to my favorite used bookstore, Chamblin Bookmine, and bought the rest of a vampire series that a friend referred me to. The Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward has me hooked.

*I am finally starting to get called back on jobs that I’ve applied for. This is a relief just because I was beginning to lose hope that jobs were really out there.

*Our city’s Rollerderby is the bomb. They didn’t win last night but they invited the winning team to Starlite Cafe for the after party and showed the Tallahassee ladies how Jacksonville gets down. A good time was had by the girls and their fans(and friends!).

*I love summer TV programming. So You Think You Can Dance is on, this show makes me hella happy! Plus Weeds and True Blood!

B4 you go…xoxo
