Then I made you a mix tape

by on Jun.10, 2011

I really liked Johannes’s Contamination mix tape, so I thought I’d make one too. Mine is longer, ’cause I never know when to quit and then I give you this tape and you’re like, “whoa, obsessed?”

Here’re some things I’ve been reading, watching, and cooking for the past week or so:

Timothy Schaffert The Phantom Limbs of the Rollow Sisters
Beverly Cleary Beezus and Ramona (copyright 1955, predicting The Feminine Mystique in flaw & treasure!, passage below*)
The French Lieutenant’s Woman
Suzanne Collins Catching Fire and Mockingjay
Black Bean and Sweet Potato Stew
Thai Coconut Rice Fritters
Banana-Bourbon Cake with Dark Chocolate Glaze
Susan Sontag Regarding the Pain of Others
Deep Dark Chocolate Cookies
Watermelon-Mango-Lime Popsicles
Mystery Science Theater 3000: Zombie Nightmare
Bret Easton Ellis Imperial Bedrooms
Lidia Yuknavitch The Chronology of Water
Roasted Red Pepper Olive and Parmesan Bread

And this:

*With gray thread Beezus carefully outlined the steam coming from the teakettle’s spout and though about her pretty young aunt, who was always so gay and so understanding. No wonder she was Mother’s favorite sister. Beezus hoped to be exactly like Aunt Beatrice when she grew up. She wanted to be a fourth-grade teacher and drive a yellow convertible and live in an apartment house with an elevator and a buzzer that opened the front door.
