Culture Consumption: May 2016

Happy June! May was over in a flash, but that’s because I was working my two SEKRIT PROJECTS. One, you already know about: Calico in Conversation! The other, well, stay tuned…. in the meantime, my brain always needs a break from the day job and SEKRIT PROJECTS, so here’s all the culture I consumed in the month of May!

Culture Consumption: May 2014

It’s that time again! Amazing how fast the time flies, but once more, it’s time for another Culture Consumption. As always, I’ll post a list of what I’ve read/watched over the past month, and in some cases, provide some commentary. If there’s anything you’re interested in or curious about, don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments, and I’ll be happy to talk further!

May was a better month than April, when it comes to reading. Granted, it still sucks in comparison to my old productivity, but given all the stuff on my plate, I’ll take it.

Making Me Laugh (and Cry)

As you all well know, I watch a lot of television. I’ve already spoken about a few shows already (Continuum, Cougar Town, Homeland, Justified, and The Walking Dead), and now that the main television season is over (mostly), I think it’s time to tackle a few more. Please note: this is not, nor is it meant to be, a critical examination of these shows. These are NOT reviews. Rather, I’ll just be sharing my reactions to the shows listed below. And because Game of Thrones will be ending its second season in a few weeks and my hubby and I are catching up on Vikings, today’s installment will focus on comedies, including the series finale of The Office.

So, if you’re interested in hearing about the following shows, keep on reading! No spoilers, I promise! 🙂

Community, season four
The Big Bang Theory, season six
Modern Family, season four
New Girl, season two
The Office, season nine
Parks and Recreation, season five
