Welcome to the new weekly (hopefully?) blog installment where I get to tell you all the things I’m listening to, watching or currently digging.
For new tunes this week, the biggest is undeniably the latest from former One Direction-er Harry Styles. Harry has set himself apart from the other members of the band by going straight rock ballad. It’s a great track and a smart move to set himself apart from the other, now solo, members of One Direction, Zayn and Niall. No official music video is available yet (we all know that’s coming), but in the meantime, check out the official audio video and let me know what you think of the song!
As for viewing, I fell into the Netflix time-trap this week with a new show that I am recommending (a slightly sick sense of humor is required). The show? Santa Clarita Diet. It’s a Netflix Original Series staring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. They are married realtors living in a stereotypical, white picket fence type neighborhood in Santa Clarita, California. It all goes downhill when Drew Barrymore’s character, Sheila, dies and becomes a zombie. I know, I know… NO MORE ZOMBIE SHOWS!! But I promise this isn’t your normal Walking Dead-esque television show! To be honest, the Walking Dead can’t be finished soon enough. In Santa Clarita Diet, the character Sheila still looks and acts just like her old self, still sells real estate and has family dinners… but she can also only eat recently deceased people. So other than that, they’re totally normal! It follows how their family deals with the…um, situation? Viewer be warned, it’s a bit graphic, but it’s in a very over-the-top, comedic way. I breezed through all ten episodes in no time, and you should too!
