Take Two

February 4, 2013

It’s been a while, but life gets in the way sometimes. Regardless we are back and in a new city to boot. Let’s catch up by enjoying one of my very favorite hobbies—re-experiencing pop culture. Starting today every Monday I’ll bring you a few of my favorite rediscoveries; whether they’re old blog posts, newspaper articles, web series, or television episodes.

Monday’s are always in need of a pick me up and I hope this proves itself as one. Let’s get down to it.

-Alyssa Rosenberg’s articles on Political Animals in Think Progress, Slate, and The Atlantic. I adore both Alyssa Rosenberg, The Atlantic, and soapy political dramas so it’s no surprise that I regularly bookmark Rosenberg’s articles so I can re-read them at my leisure. These particular choices have just the right amount of self-discovery, criticism  and political insight to make them worth a second look.

-Zap2it’s Carina MacLenzie’s examination of One Tree Hill character Brooke Davis. It’s always nice to relive the impact that pop culture can have on people.

-Mauren Dowd’s column as a meeting place for two very different presidents. In September 2008 and again inOctober  2012 Dowd gave Aaron Sorkin free rein to write fictional meetings between President Barack Obama and fictional President Jeb Bartlet.  Also worth a re-read Sorkin fan or not.

-This surprisingly powerful letter from former President Bush resigning from NRA membership in ’95.

-The Guild’s Do You Wanna Date My Avatar music video. How could you not watch again and again?
