What I’m Into Right Now – June 2018

June… it’s a month for changes! My kids lose the rigid structure of their school, sports, and dance schedules… and that means our family schedule loosens up a bit too.

It gives all a chance to slow down and relax a little bit… and it gave me a little time to think about the following list of things that I’m currently into.

What I’m Into Right Now – June 2018

Alone – I just got through the first two seasons of this History Channel television show on Hulu and love it. It puts 10 survivalists into the wilds of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. They each are on their own… literally. There’s no film crew. They each document their struggle to survive and thrive.  The last one standing wins 500K.

I’d like to think that my survival skills could get me by for a couple of days… but I don’t know that I’d last that long by myself. I need social interaction.

The Waitress Original Broadway Soundtrack – I loved this show when my wife and I got to see it last year. You can read my review here. Now, my daughter is thinking about doing a dance solo to one of the songs from it next dance season. I’ve been listening to the soundtrack thinking about how I might edit the music for her.

Strawberry Shortcake – This one’s a family favorite! Strawberries are plentiful… and a great bargain right now making this a great treat. In case you missed it, my oldest and I created a video showing how we make strawberry shortcake.

Ice Cream – Soft serve, scooped, ice cream sandwich… doesn’t matter. I love’em all and warmer weather means the perfect opportunity to enjoy them all.

Cargo Shorts – Yeah, that’s right. I said it. I love cargo shorts. Makes sense. I’m a Dad. So glad that you don’t have to dress up to be on the radio.

What I’m Into Right Now – May 2018

How is it already time for another one of these? Feels like it was just last week that I did April’s round-up of things I’m into… and now here it’s time to share what has my attention as we enter May.

What I’m Into Right Now – May 2018

Girl Going Nowhere – I’m a big fan of this debut album from Ashley McBryde. It’s a great one from start to finish. You can read more about it in my review here.

Adobe Sessions – This Cody Jinks album is a few years old but it’s a great one. For anyone complaining about “pop country” I would recommend checking out this album. It’s been on repeat in my headphones as I’ve been doing yard work. Can’t wait to see him do some of these songs in concert later this month.

Sneaky Pete – I’ve already worked my way through season 1 of this Amazon Prime Exclusive show and just started season 2. This show features identity theft, interesting family dynamics, and some mystery. You can read the Amazon description here.

Spending time outside – Finally, the weather has turned and it’s been nice to be outside. I’ve enjoyed doing some Spring yard work, getting our garden ready to plant… and GRILLING!

YouTube Comedy Clips – Part of my job requires me to do a little data entry each day. It’s not difficult but requires concentration. I usually like to listen to something while working on it and recently I started listening to comedians on YouTube. Mitch Hedberg, Steven Wright, and Demetri Martin are some of my favorites.

Twelve Albums That Mean Something To Me

Awhile back I got tagged on Facebook with something that was making the rounds. It was a ten day, ten album challenge… where you share the albums that “really made an impact and that you still listen to, even if only now and again. Post the cover, no need to explain.”

Knowing myself I knew that coming up with my list of albums and then remembering to share them one at a time over ten days would be tricky. I’d probably forget around day five or six and might not even finish.

I decided there was something I could do, though. I could share them all in one blog post. And as long as I was breaking the rules I figured I’d break another one. Instead of ten albums, I’m sharing twelve.

Look’em over and see if any of my favorites would also make your list.

What are some of your favorite albums?
