looking forward to april

This week I went to North Dakota to spend some time with my brother in a city called Wahpeton.  Small cities always fascinate me because I live in such a big city like St. Paul.

I also started listening to an audiobook based on the Seinfeld show called Seinfeldia. It gives a lot of neat facts about the show's writers and producers.  It tells you interesting things about the sets of the show and how one of the restaurant's was based on a real life Greek restaurant in NY which the show renamed it:Monks. I was surprised to learn:
  •  The Seinfeld show is very popular! ( now you must understand I was about nine or ten when this show first aired)  
  • Seinfeld went a whole year, never missing a day, to go and see comics in New York. (learning trade secrets)
  •  Producers decided to film the show with three cameras instead of one; bringing in a live audience, similar to how films were staged in the 50's.
  • There also dozens of websites for Seinfeld trivia.



Well that's all for this week folks, I hope you have a good week.

  1. I have to admit that I don't watch the reruns, but I loved Seinfeld when it was originally on, it was funny in a refreshingly honest way. Never heard of Seinfeldia though, that's something I should check out.

  2. I would love to read Bobby Kennedy's biography. I do enjoy anything about the Kennedys. This week, I loved The Editor, which fictionalized Jackie Kennedy Onassis as an editor.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. I've never watched Seinfield, but I remember when it was very popular! I find the Kennedy's fascinating. Bobby Kennedy's Biography sounds like a good read/audio. Have a great week!

    1. Yes, there are so many things that became popular after that show, like Junior mints and restaurants in NYC.

  7. I find both Kennedys fascinating, but both stories have such sad endings. It just breaks my heart to read about people killed in the prime of their lives...

    Have a great week and happy reading!
