Linda Recommends

I haven't posted in a few weeks and it's a slow Friday, so I'm going to do a round-up post. Consider this sort of like my Must List (sorry EW):

Music: She & Him Volume One: Even though this album was released on Tuesday, I feel a little late to this party. Still, better late than never. She & Him is one of my favorite actresses, Zooey Deschanel and singer/songwriter M. Ward. Aside from the Beatles cover (or covers, depending on whether you consider "You Really Got a Hold on Me" a Beatles song), it's quite an endearing album--wistful, folk-y, with a hint of 60s girl groups. The best part, all the tracks are available on the duo's MySpace.

Live Music: Juanes La Vida Tour. You can read a review I wrote of his album on the middle of this page. He really knows how to get a crowd going.

Television: Since I don't have a TV yet, I'm addicted to, a website which offers full-length television episodes and films for free. I'm currently on the first season of Doogie Howser, M.D. I watched it sometimes when I was younger, but I think a lot of it went over my head, and it's much better than I remember. And thanks to the internet, I was able to watch the return of How I Met Your Mother, which included a brilliant line that probably only I enjoyed, "That's not so Raven."

Theatre: Macbeth is transferring to Broadway and I was lucky enough to see it at BAM. There's nothing I can say that the rave reviews haven't said, except seeing Patrick Stewart live is almost as cool as seeing him in Extras.

Food: For breakfast, I'm addicted to Nature's Path Organic Toaster Pastries, especially the Cherry Pomegran™. So much better (and better for you) than Pop-Tarts.
