3 Suggestions on a Saturday Night

We made it to the weekend! In Portland, we have suffered through a terrible heat wave for the second week in a row. I'm very grateful though that we have made it to the weekend because this also means we have a break from the heat wave. It's actually raining right now! I thought a fun feature on my blog would be three suggestions on a Saturday night. Most of these are actual things I experienced this week, so hopefully something will catch your eye!

Alright, here we go:

1) My Saturday Night Reading Suggestion: The Fat Lady's Low, Sad Song by Brian Kaufman. I'm taking more of a chance on Indie reads lately and this one took me by total surprise. I'm not a baseball person at all or even really a sports person, but if you are interested in a book that talks about team camaraderie, good humor, and great characterization, you should read this book. It took me by total surprise and I'm so glad I read it (check out my review here).

2) My Saturday Night Movie Suggestion: Vertigo (1958). Are you a Hitchcock fan at all? I watched this recently and it took me by total surprise at how good it was. I took a Hitchcock class in college and many classes were spent watching Hitchcock movies, which was really cool. If you aren't really into old movies, I'd say give this one a shot. It really makes you think and the ending itself is a conversation piece.

3) My Saturday Night Song Suggestion: I have a radio app and while I don't think to listen to the radio, I have been lately and caught a song that I really liked. The song is called Feel It Still by Portugal. The Man and wow it was so good! I think this makes a fantastic gym song and the singer has an unusual voice. Give it a listen:


So tell me your reading suggestion, movie suggestion, or a song you just found recently that you want to recommend. Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Yes, I've seen Vertigo. It is very good, though I'll admit my favourites of his films are North By Northwest and To Catch A Thief.
