As you can see, I have once again neglected to regularly update this blog. I'm in school right now so it's honestly really difficult to do this when there are more important things going on, like homework, my jobs, and my comic work. BUT, I'm going to try to at least update my tumblr more often, just posting short little reviews of stuff I've read/watched/listened to. You can follow me there at maddlovesmedia.tumblr.com.

July Playlist: Hot Hot Hot

It's the first post of July (besides SGS), and you know what that means! It's playlist time! This month I was inspired by how goshdarn hot it is outside all the time, so I figured I'd beat the heat by making a mix that completely embodies melted popsicles and sleepiness and swimming in a lukewarm kiddie pool, etc. Enjoy! Also, one or two of the songs may be a bit NSFW, so listen at your own risk.

Upstream Color Review

My friend Hannah has been on my case to watch this movie for quite a while, and after hearing an interview with creator Shane Carruth on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn (here's a link to the podcast episode if you'd like to listen to it) I knew I had to stop putting it off. Then, lo and behold! The Netflix gods smiled down on us all and gave us Upstream Color on Instant Streaming. And can I just say, wow?
Note: spoilers ahead.
