Books


For anybody who   loves mystery books, I would definitely recommend reading “And Then There Were None” by Agatha Christie. Other books I would recommend are “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison and “A Tale of Two Cities”. Toni Morrison is also due to be giving a reading at the National Gallery of Art in DC on Nov. 1st. She will be reading “The Fisherwoman” from Robert Bergman’s ‘A Kind of Rapture’.


Movies


Usually, I don’t cry when I watch movies, but “The Butterfly Effect”, “The Notebook”, and “The Pursuit of Happiness” made me breakdown like a baby. One of the movies with the best acting that I have ever seen in my life was “Batman: The Dark Knight”. Although Batman was supposed to be the main focus, I definitely think Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker stole the show. Other movies that really interested me , that  fall under the genre of romantic comedies but  have a twist, are “The Break Up” and “500 Days of Summer”. Also, I must say that I am a huge fan of Michael Cera, so any comedy he is in is likely to be hilarious.


New Stuff I’ve Tried


Lately, I have been becoming more and more interested in the genre of music that I refer to as ‘Jazz-rap’. Artists such as “Bert Matej” and “Loren Middleton and the Fifth King” are excellent examples of this genre. Many of these rappers are known as underground artists because of their sounds and often all too real lyrics, which discuss problems in the music industry, the rap industry, or in society. Often times these artists are not mainstream because their art is not about making the most money, or the catchiest beat for people to dance to in a club, but it is about creating the highest quality music.


On another note, not too long ago I was on vacation in Rhode Island.  I had the opportunity to try some of the best seafood I’ve ever had. I went to several restaurants in Newport and every single one I went to had very fresh seafood, not to mention beautiful views of the water.
