I’ve been getting alerts from Google that people are talking about this blog. I mean, every couple of days I get a new alert. At first I was all excited. I was going to be popular and sit at the cool kids table, finally, right? Well, not exactly.
It turns out this is not the dome that’s setting off all of the alarm bells and whistles and email alerts. It’s Stephen King and his book Under The Dome. Somehow Google thinks Stephen King and I have a lot in common. Wouldn’t he be surprised?
Apparently it is also a TV show. Who knew? Not me. I’m so behind in popular culture that it took several Google alerts about dome’s to make me aware it even existed. Anyway, I haven’t read the book or watched the show yet, but I am thinking about downloading the book and seeing if it’s any good. I used to read quite a bit of Stephen King when I was younger. I am not sure why I stopped. I think college put me on a nonfiction path that I haven’t been able to get off of for quite a while. I could use a good thriller/fantasy/mystery/dome book right about now. Have you read it or seen the show yet? Let me know what you think.
Other news for under THIS dome is that I have started making illustrations of my life. I got this really cool art book. I’m only about halfway through it, but I have already been incredibly inspired by it and have so many ideas swimming in my head. I think this book would lend itself well to art journaling too.
Another book that has caught my attention is this one:
I’ve always wanted to do a self-portrait series and now I am feeling really inspired to get going on it. This artist writes well and has included some pretty fun art prompts for the reader to tackle. I can tell I am going to have a lot of fun working through this book. Not to mention, it is filled with gorgeous art work too!
I was supposed to get my hair cut by a professional stylist, but I spent my money on art books instead. So much for keeping up with any sort of style. Good thing life under the dome doesn’t require any primping.
I hope you have an enjoyable weekend and read some really good fiction or get your hands on some beautiful art books. I’m pretty sure that’s what I’ll be doing (If Tiny-Small lets me).
