Watch: Daredevil

It’s no secret that when it comes to the world of comics and things based on comics, I am primarily a Marvel girl. I love DC TV shows like Arrow and The Flash, and I’m really looking forward to the upcoming shows Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow. But Marvel time and again wins my heart. And the Netflix original Daredevil was no different.

Watch: Chef’s Table

fwx-netflix-chefs-tableJust this past weekend, I discovered a new addition to the seemingly endless content on Netflix. There’s dozen of fantastic shows & documentaries about food available on there, many of which are Netflix series, but this new original series really caught my eye. Then, once I watched it, it’s like my eyes glazed over and my stomach got all warm, I swear I was floating off the bed.

Music: Honeyblood

HoneybloodWelcome to my newest chick-punk obsession, Fangirls. I heard a snippet of one of Honeyblood’s songs in the background of a talk radio show, and spent the day trying to figure out what it was. Eventually, after calling the radio station and telling them the exact moment I heard this beautiful noise, they were able to point my towards Honeyblood. Best phone call I’ve ever made.

Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs

Fangirls.  I am really excited about this book.  I got it in the mail last week, instantly reread the first book (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), and read this book all within 48 hours.  I really enjoyed the first book, which is about a boy named Jacob finding out that all of the “made up” stories his grandfather used to tell him about children with peculiarities were all true.  In the first book, Jacob finds the time loop where Miss Peregrine and her wards still reside, living through September 3, 1940 over and over, for around 70 years.  When Jacob comes to their secret area, some really bad dudes (wights and hollowghasts) follow him, and eventually capture Miss Peregrine.  Luckily, Jacob and the peculiar children he has befriended save Miss Peregrine, and decide they must cross to the mainland of Whales to continue their journey.  That’s where this book picks up.
