Quote of the Day: The play RED on discernment and significance...

"Everyone likes everything nowadays. They like the television and the phonograph and the shampoo and the soda pop and the Cracker Jack. Everything becomes everything else and it's all nice and pretty and LIKABLE. Everything is fun in the sun! Where's the discernment? Where's the arbitration that separates what I LIKE from what I RESPECT, what I deem WORTHY, what has... listen to me now... SIGNIFICANCE."
-- John Logan, Red (via Goodreads)

What we're listening to: Lea Michele's BRUNETTE AMBITION audio book. Sometimes it might be hard to separate Michele from her character on GLEE, but her new book is literally in her own voice. It's all about empowerment and beauty and is billed as "part memoir, part how-to, and part style guide". We're excited to check it out!
