Multi-Type Advisory, Take 2

My first attempt at multi-type advisory was blogged here. Here's my second attempt.

We'll start with a CD this time. You know who's popular? Pink. I have her CD "Greatest Hits...So Far," released in 2010. Obviously, it includes her greatest hits: songs like "Get the Party Started," "Don't Let Me Get Me," and my personal favorite, "Raise Your Glass." Pink is loud, aggressive, and obnoxious. She's also strong, creative, and sincere. She and her music make no apologies for who they are, and seem to accept other people as they are as well, but encourages people to get out there and try things, to have a personality, and to live large.

Here are my pairing suggestions:

The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure by Rachel Friedman. Rachel had always been a good girl. She was a good student; obedient and safe. On a whim, she bought a ticket to Ireland and set off on a journey of self-discovery.

Even Cowgirls Get the Blues by Tim Robbins. A road trip book about sassy girls. What else need I say? Pink could be a character in this book!

Web Site:
Geek the Library - whatever you are into, the library has something for you. Just as Pink is who she is and likes what she likes, you can too. Whatever your thing is, geek it! Be it! Live it! Enjoy it!

Charlie's Angels (2000). Pink would make a great Angel.

Get Him to the Greek (2010). Pink is actually in this movie. She plays herself. This movie is funny, over-the-top, and party-laden. Perfect match.
