5 Podcasts You Should Listen To

February 16, 2017

I only recently started listening to podcasts on a regular basis. I tried several times years ago and couldn't find one I liked. I need something to hold my attention. If I start to drift, I'm out. I mostly listen in the car and occasionally listen at the office. Here are 5 podcasts I'm currently loving.


1. Congratulations
This is a brand new podcast from comedian Chris D'Elia. If you love Chris, you'll love this podcast. It's just him talking about random things. I could seriously listen to him talk about a paper sack. Everything he says cracks me up.


2. My Favorite Murder
I discovered this podcast about a year ago. It's two female comedians discussing all things murder and true crime. Sometimes they get the facts right. Sometimes they don't. But they try, and it's funny. It's my absolute favorite. Warning: It's not for the faint of heart. And they cuss like sailors.


3. Harry Potter and the Sacred Text
The hosts read Harry Potter books as though they're sacred text and relate the words to every day life. It's extremely positive and uplifting. I love the joy I feel after listening. My only complaint is that both of the hosts have annoying voices. Maybe it's just me...


4. Prinze & The Wolf
I just started listening to this podcast. I follow comedian Josh Wolf on Twitter. He has several popular podcasts, but recently started this one with buddy Freddie Prinze Jr. There's no theme. They talk about anything and everything. I laugh a lot, so I give this one two thumbs up.


5. Real Crime Profile
This is the exact opposite of My Favorite Murder. This podcast takes a serious look at true crime. Numerous experts weigh in on all kinds of cases, old and new. They discuss killers, trials, evidence and theories. It's just like listening to the Investigation Discovery channel.

2017 Grammy Fashion, Best Dressed

February 13, 2017


LEA MICHELE in Cavalli Couture
The picture doesn't do this look justice.
She looked phenomenal on tv.
I love the pink eyes.
And even though the skirt is sheer, it's not too much.
I just love this and think she looks great.


CHRISSY TEIGEN in Roberto Cavalli
I will always love a great black dress.
This one is just different enough.
It's sexy without showing a lot of skin.
And I do adore Chrissy.


DEMI LOVATO in Julien Macdonald
Hair.
Makeup.
Dress.
Flawless.
I think this is the best I've ever seen her look.


CARRIE UNDERWOOD in Elie Madi
She looks amazing in this shade of red.
She also looks sexy without showing too much.
Sometimes less really is more.


ADELE in Givenchy Haute Couture
She looks amazing!
Her makeup is always on point.
And this green looks so good on her.


Can you believe that 4 of my 5 choices are unlined dresses?
I can't either.
It's like someone finally got the memo.
You can do unlined without the girl looking straight up naked.

2017 Grammy Fashion, Round II


JOY VILLA
Girlfriend actually wore a Pro-Trump dress to the Grammys.
If it was a marketing ploy, it worked.
Her album sales are apparently way up today.


MARGARET CHO
I would never have recognized her if her name hadn't been under the photo.


MAREN MORRIS
1. I can't stop singing her song 80's Mercedes.
2. This could have been cute if it weren't missing part of the dress.


KATY PERRY
I like her blonde hair and makeup.
But the dress is horrid.


ELLE KING
Fun Fact: Her dad is comedian Rob Schneider.
Is it wrong of me to think the dress doesn't go with her tattoos?


GIRL CRUSH
I don't know who she is or what this is.
I mean, come on!


TWENTY ONE PILOTS
I like these guys a lot.
I'm taking my son to see them on March 4th.
It'll be his first concert.
We're both very excited.


TIM McGRAW + FAITH HILL
They both look great.
I love her in red.


JAY-Z + BEYONCE
I like her dress, but would have liked it even more with less cleavage.

2017 Grammy Fashion, Round I

I watched the Grammys aside from the first 20 minutes and last 20 minutes. I was mostly bored and disappointed. I did enjoy both of Bruno's performances. I also enjoyed the speech given by the guys from Twenty One Pilots. Beyonce's performance was fine, but a little too over the top for me. What else? James Corden is adorable. The Bee Gees tribute was horrible. I puffy heart love Adele. ♥


You'll quickly notice a theme from the evening.

Cleavage cut-outs + boobs


JENNIFER LOPEZ
I like this color on JLo.
And I love the heels, clutch and jewels.
She's done it all, so it takes a lot for her to impress me.
This was just ok.


TINASHE
She's really pretty, but her boobs are distracting.
It does not look good.


CELINE DION
It's a pretty green, but the dress doesn't suit her.
And she should have worn her hair differently.


HEIDI KLUM
I don't care how great your legs look.
A dress shouldn't be this short.
It's a top without pants.


HALSEY
I have no words.
Well, I do have one.
Terrible!


TORI KELLY
She looks fab in green.
So pretty!


LADY GAGA
Yes, it's a bit much.
But it's Gaga.


KAT GRAHAM
She usually wears dresses that are a bit out there.
I quite like this one.
Pretty.


RYAN TEDDER
He's so cute.
And I love his voice.
But that tie is way too skinny.


JOHN LEGEND
He looks good, but I'm not digging the matchy bow tie.


NICK JONAS
He looks ridiculous.


CEELO
He looks like a character from Star Trek.


CHARLI XCX
I don't like the dress, but she looks fab in red.


RIHANNA
It's not bad, but I don't love it.
I think it being a crop top ruins it for me.
