Sunday Favorites

Wow, my friend sent me "Prejudice", a funny song about redheads by Australian comedian Tim Minchin, earlier this week, and I have since tumbled headfirst in love with this guy! He's got a razor-sharp wit, raises serious social issues in a deceptively humorous (and admittedly often foul-mouthed) manner, and has got some serious piano and singing skills. His wordplay is just incredible, too, so if you're fairly open-minded and NOT easily offended, I highly recommend you look up some of his work. Above I've included a rare serious song by Tim. Perhaps it's a bit out-of-place considering that Christmas is over 7 months away, but to me this sweet message to his daughter is timeless and worth a listen at any part of the year. Hope you enjoy this and my other weekly favorites, and feel free to share some of favorite discoveries of your own in the comments below =D.

  3. I always love everything you share. (music and food) Thanks for taking the time to do that. You totally got me hooked on Game of Thrones too!!!

    1. Yay for getting a GoT convert! This season has been less cohesive in terms of story, but I believe that's due to the book itself. I think as the show progresses, it'll only get harder to keep the story tight as the author introduced so many different characters. Thanks for letting me know you're enjoying the favorites -- sometimes I do wonder if I'm just doing them for myself hehe.


I love hearing from you all! Please leave me a message if you have questions, advice, or just to let me know you stopped by. Your feedback is always very much appreciated. Thanks! <3 Xiaolu
