Vietnam doc makes Ken Burns, Trent Reznor partners – Richmond Times-Dispatch: Music

Really excited for this one. I’m a bit of a documentary nerd anyway, so naturally Ken Burns is one of my loves. But to have a Ken Burns documentary dealing with the primary issue this Nation faced during my childhood, the Vietnam War, paired with the music of the era soundtrack created by Trent Reznor, is going to be nothing short of amazing.

The article states that this will be a 10-part series and is scheduled for this fall. I’ll post more when I learn the actual schedule. Can’t wait.


Ken Burns and Trent Reznor would seem two unlikely collaborators, but both describe their recent work on the upcoming PBS documentary on the Vietnam War as among the most satisfying of their careers.

How to Spend Less so You Can Travel More | Travel + Leisure

I’ve been coming across this story in various articles across the internet as many people seem to be intrigued with the idea of something like a “spend nothing” year. But for travel bugs it could very well be the thought of actually saving for that “bucket list” trip we’ve all dreamed of that might encourage us to be willing to do something many consider extreme.

This article helps you figure out a less extreme way of perhaps saving just enough for that dream tip. Give it a peek if you think you could use some guidance on figuring out the easier things to cut back on.

Tip: put some photos or travel brochures of your dream location all around, on the fridge, in the car, on your desk, for inspiration!

One woman saved more than $20,000 in a year by cutting most of her spending. You can do it, too.
