Collected Culture | 1: Stones, Roads, and Skies.

A few things that I've watched, read, ate, or listened to, that I think you should too! This series (or whatever it will become), is something I created to restart my blogging game, cause if you haven't noticed, I haven't posted in over a year. And trust me, I have a good excuse for why, but I'm afraid those excuses might convince me to stop blogging again (I'm that convincing, haha!)

Start Me Up by The Rolling Stones (1981)

Once upon a night, I started stalking The Rolling Stones on Wikipedia and Youtube, a little over a year ago. This was one of the first songs I heard from them, and I used to listen to it non-stop, so when it came on shuffle just a few days ago, history repeated itself, and I can't seem to stop listening to it now. 

Two for the Road directed by Stanley Donen (1967)

I've been watching more Hepburn films this summer, and trust me I never get tired of her. This has got to be one of my favorite films out there, mostly for it's cinematography (biased because they filmed most of it in Europe, and I'm a sucker for that continent) and it's story line!

Not only my favorite, but a favorite of my dad as well (says a lot cause he doesn't watch that much movies), this movie is timeless, and will take you to the beautiful places you'd want to visit.

Synopsis: A couple in the south of France non-sequentially spin down the highways of infidelity in their troubled ten-year marriage. IMDB

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson (2010)

Read this book in one sitting, and I definitely cringed, laughed and went downhill in those hours. It's such a great book, and although I couldn't really relate to the character, Lennie, with her loss, I could only imagine what she was going through.

Characters are on point, dialogues as well, and the plot twist at the end made me close my book and go full on 'WTF just happened?'

Hey, don't you ever get annoyed that present tense 'read' and past tense 'read' is spelled the same.
