My Addictions

It Movie-d Me
The Women (1939)

"The Women (1939)" (George Kukor)

The original is awesome; do not even bother to watch the remake. The dressing room scene between Joan Crawford and Norma Shearer? Best catfight EVER!


Ear Wax
Tribute

"Tribute" by John Newman

First heard Love Me Again on Suits and had to find it. Ended up buying the entire album. Think Elvis meets Adele.
