#HungryHeart #MarchIntothe70s
Have been a little stumped on these lately, including today's. And meanwhile, I'm in an audiobook desert where I'm weeks away from my next audio hold. Listening to the last @ReadingEnvy episode solved both problems when @Bianca reminded me I've waited far too long to read a book about one of my favorite bands of all-time. And somehow it was available wait-free on Overdrive- which never happens! @Lizpixie @Cinfhen

Cinfhen Like how this post was a heavily influenced #BlameItOnLitsy collaboration😉 (edited) 8mo
Billypar @Cinfhen Totally: even before this post when a Sleater Kinney song came up on #NoFemmeber and both @Leftcoastzen and @saresmoore gave it strong recommendations. So yeah Litsy- I get it, I'm on it! 😋 8mo
Leftcoastzen Yay ! I hope you love it.She‘s multidimensional and whip smart . 8mo

ReadingEnvy Overdrive on audio I hope? I loved it so much. 8mo
Billypar @ReadingEnvy Yes- on audio (which is even more surprising that it was available now). Just an hour in and I'm already hooked! 8mo
gradcat @Cinfhen @Leftcoastzen @ReadingEnvy @Billypar Did any of you watch “Portlandia”? I loved her in that show. 8mo
Billypar @gradcat Only a couple episodes. I remember one sketch where Corin Tucker made an appearance with Colin Meloy and James Mercer as members of a band called 'Echo Echo' 😁 8mo
Leftcoastzen @gradcat I have seen a few seasons but not all of Portlandia, I love Portland!Carrie also directed episode 2 of Shrill on Hulu. 8mo
gradcat @Leftcoastzen I don‘t know about “Shrill.” I have Hulu—is it really good? 8mo
ReadingEnvy @gradcat yes! I'm from Oregon so it is a total nostalgia trip for me. And then the woman who was my high school classmate shows up in bit parts from time to time so that's fun too. Cacao! 8mo
gradcat @ReadingEnvy That is so cool! I lived on the West Coast for years and never made it up to Oregon—one of my great regrets, alas. It looks beautiful!! 8mo

I am Rosa Parks | Brad Meltzer

Florence almost always chooses a “Who Was” book for her bedtime story and Genevieve almost always chooses a Nat Geo book for her bedtime story. Tonight they BOTH chose Rosa Parks and earlier this week they both chose MLK. It gets a bit repetitive. 😆 But they have a #hungryheart for knowledge and justice and that makes me happy. #marchintothe70s

Crazeedi His children's books are great 8mo

Cinfhen I often wonder about that too. But my brother lives in NYC and those buildings blast that steam heat all winter long. Those apartments are infernos 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 (edited) 8mo

I had to do this one! I read this before I worked an author event at my library. I had never read anything by Jennifer Weiner but tried this based on a recommendation from @YummyLibrarian. I loved it and loved listening to and meeting Jennifer Weiner. Really great book! #hungryheart #marchintothe70s

#HungryHeart #MarchIntoThe70s When was that Springsteen concert again? Oh ,wait, look at the back of the shirt! I‘ve seen him a few times, I think this shirt is from a show in Oakland.He really gives his all on stage.Some picture sleeves from 45s...remember those?

Samplergal Have you read 8mo
Leftcoastzen @Samplergal I have not. Weird story, my friend bought it,read it , said she‘d loan it to me, said she wanted to read it again,then didn‘t loan it to me.😂I need to get to it. 8mo
AmyG I used to see him in the late 70‘s, early 80‘s. He always put on an amazing show. ALWAYS. 8mo

Samplergal @Leftcoastzen I would suggest the audiobook. He reads it. It makes a difference. 8mo
Leftcoastzen @Samplergal Thx! I will get that! 8mo
gradcat Nice post! 🥰 @AmyG Agreed—it was as if he really wanted you to get your money‘s worth—his shows went on for hours! (edited) 8mo

Crow has a wife (Tess) and kid in Baltimore. He‘s annoying as hell, but he‘s too much of a mensch to take a ride and never look back. #hungryheart #marchintothe70s

Heart of Darkness | Conrad, Joseph
post image


(Day 21 - #HungryHeart)

The title of Springsteen‘s album with the song “Hungry Heart” is “The River.” The lyrics of the song include a passage about a river flowing who knows where (anyway, the singer doesn‘t, or so he claims). All of this makes me think of the overused metaphor of the river as journey, or life. Naturally, Conrad‘s novel comes to mind, but also both Coppola‘s and Herzog‘s movies.

Cathythoughts Great choice ♥️👍🏻 8mo
gradcat @Cathythoughts Thank you for saying that...sometimes I get kind of out there with these songs! 😂 8mo
Cinfhen I love that Springsteen album 8mo
gradcat @Cinfhen 🥰 8mo
