During the Renaissance, cabinet of curiosities came into fashion as a collection of objects that would often defy classification. As a precursor to the modern museum, the cabinet referred to room(s), not actual furniture, of things that piqued the owners interest and would be collected and displayed in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Collectioun of Cunnynge Curioustes is my 21st century interpretation of that idea.

Watching

  • True Blood
    I can’t speak for the rest of you, but, this season blew big fat goat chunks. The tying up of the story lines, how it ended with so many of the characters, was cliched and overwrought. Thank fuck this show is over.
  • Rectify
    Beautiful, beautiful show. Beautifully written, acted, and directed. If your heart is not having the feels for Daniel Holden every week, something is fucking wrong with you. I cannot wait for season three to start next year.
  • Elementary
    I want to love this show, I do. Jonny Miller is superb and the episodes are compelling, but there is something missing in which I cannot put my finger on. The last five or six episodes have been hanging out on the DVR since May and I have no intention to watch them. With the new fall season to start soon, it seemed appropriate to ditch them and cancel the series.

Weekly watching: Outlander, The Bridge, Project Runway, The Almighty Johnsons, A Place To Call Home, Last Week Tonight with John OliverCosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey

What have you read/watched/listened to this week?

    Could not agree more about True Blood. I’m watching the new Sean Bean show, Legends. I like it. I’m excited about The Affair starting in October on Showtime. Still love the Voice, SYTYCD, and Top Chef. I have the new season of Ray Donovan sitting my DVR and can’t bring myself to watch it. I’m kinda meh about Elementary also. It seems interesting but not interesting enough for me to commit to it on a weekly basis. May have to watch Rectify after your review.
