ICYMI: Weekly Roundup

This week on i listen. i watch.:

  • Turns out Kat is a lot like Dexter Morgan, but that’s not so bad: “There is a certain rugged handsomeness and contagious politeness to me. Oh—and I’m incredibly humble and modest. I can’t believe I almost forgot to mention those qualities.”
  • Amanda rounded up covers of the Smokey Robinson classic “You Really Got a Hold on Me” and recommended the new Nickel Creek song.

Around the web:

  • Fans of folk, bluegrass, or Americana, check out the incredible new album by Hurray for the Riff Raff is streaming over on First Listen.
  • The current season of Psych will be its last.
  • Way back when Heath Ledger was cast as The Joker, I was disappointed Paul Bettany got passed up. Obviously, I was wrong, but now we may get to see Paul as Vision in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
  • Opening this week: The Lego Movie, The Monuments Men, Vampire Academy, A Field in England, A Fantastic Fear of Everything, and more.

Have a happy weekend, and always remember: “The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you’re uncool.”
