The Year in Music Mondays

For the last Monday of the year, I decided to try to come up with the best of Music Mondays. It was a hard choice but throughout the year, one of the artists I kept going back to was Robert Duncan. His work on Castle is simple amazing and I really wish ABC would release the soundtrack. Here's two of my favorites.

Robert Duncan, ABC's Castle

And my all time Castle favorite

Gotta Love Jezebel

You can learn terrific new terms on the Internet. Today I learned about vampire tea bags. Please note that, although it is a rather hilarious article, this Jezebel post on is titled F*** You, Menstruation and is neither kid nor work friendly. (But just about every woman from 11 to 80 can totally relate.)

Other interesting links, author Scott Lynch answers (bitslaps) critics about how unrealistic his female characters are written. I've added Mr. Lynch to my teetering TBR based on his responses alone. :) via

Which also led me to, PSA: Your Default Narrative Settings Are Not Apolitical. There are some terrific links in that post as well. 

Enjoy your weekend. :)

Music Monday

Jar of Hearts
Christina Perri

My ultimate OTP (One True Pair) is Selina Kyle/Bruce Wayne. The only writer
I've seen actually do this awesome anti-heroine justice is Chris Dee with her Cat-Tales
What struck me with this song is how well it would fit Selina when she's finally 
had enough with the ubber moody Black Knight.
