Homeland

Did you see Claire Danes grace the cover of Vogue this past month; appropriately, Homeland's third season, airs 9.29. Will you watch it? If not, then I highly recommend this show; such great entertainment!

Check out the trailer, and notice anything about that preview melody?

The Transatlantic Accent


Have you heard of the transatlantic or Mid-Atlantic accent? I first discovered it from Alice Walker and her '21 accents video', which led me here. A blending of American and British accents, this vernacular was not a regional accent but taught to actors and actresses. I just think it's so dreamy and old Hollywood, don't you?

Tunes: Just a Boy



It's a quiet week around here, but I hope it's been a good one for you.

Reflections


I'm in the final 50 pages of The Warmth of Other Suns. Just picking it up less than 3 weeks ago, I haven't been able to put down the 600 page book, but the final pages have me halting in my tracks with no desire to read the conclusion. 

Let me tell you why. The Warmth of Other Suns so beautifully narrates the lives of three African Americans from the deep South who migrate to Chicago, New York, and California in search of a better life; a life void of Jim Crow and prejudicial obstacles. The book has chronicled their journeys through marriages, babies, jobs, disappointments, and triumphs. In the final pages, you see Robert, George, and Ida Mae as deteriorating beings with their generation dying around them, and the present generation utterly unaware of the past.
