Friday Five


Still from Ethan Newberry’s film Where Dreams Go To Die



I’ve been wanting to start a few different series-style posts where, week-to-week, there’d be a post dedicated to a similar theme. The first in this fashion is going to Friday Five, where I recap five things from the week that are worth checking out.
