#1 - WHAT IS THE ONE ALBUM (OR EP OR SONG) THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE THE VERY NEXT MUSICAL THING THAT EVERYONE PRESSES PLAY ON THE NEXT TIME THEY FIND THEMSELVES THINKING “WHAT SHOULD I LISTEN TO NOW”?
Mister Saturday Night’s run of 12-inches…this Brooklyn label is on fire. What I’d call classic house, though i’m sure they're some more bloggernoxious definition i’m unaware of.
And the new album by The Magnetic North, “Prospect Of Skelmersdale".
#2 - WHAT IS THE ONE MOVIE OR TV SHOW THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE NEXT IN EVERYBODY’S NETFLIX QUEUE (OK, DOESN’T HAVE TO BE NETFLIX, WE’RE ALL INTERNET ADULTS HERE AND KNOW HOW TO FIND ANYTHING ONLINE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER)?
Cracker w/ Robbie Coltrane. UK drama from the 90s. Coltrane plays a gambling sweaty chain-smoking pint drinking criminal psychologist. It’s set in Manchester. It’s dark.
3. I (AND BY “I” I MEAN “THE PERSON THAT IS READING THIS”) AM GOING TO THE BOOK STORE (OK, PROBABLY AMAZON) TO FIND THE VERY NEXT BOOK THAT I WILL BE PUTTING SOME EXTREMELY VALUABLE ‘ME-TIME' ASIDE FOR. WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU GET, IF YOU WERE ME (AND, I SUPPOSE, YOU HADN’T ALREADY READ WHAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO SUGGEST)?
The Panopticon by Jenni Fagan, anything by Ed Abbey, Lanark by Alasdair Gray.
#4 - WHAT IS THE ONE WEBSITE (OR JUST ANY OLD INTERNET THING: APP, GIF, SERVICE, WHATEVER) THAT YOU WOULD GET REALLY DOWN IN THE DUMPS ABOUT IF IT WERE TO SUDDENLY GO AWAY?
I’d miss Daily Kos, but seriously, isn’t the internet just a garbage fire?
#5 - AND FINALLY… PLEASE GIVE ONE COMPLETELY UNAIDED RECOMMENDATION THAT YOU THINK EVERYONE SHOULD START DOING / USING / WATCHING / EATING / THINKING / QUITING / ETC-ING TO MAKE THEIR LIVES A LITTLE BIT MORE BETTER AND/OR BEARABLE.
I like to jog and listen to the Two-Headed Nerd podcast. They are nerds. They got me back into comics after i took about 38 years off.
OK folks, there you have it. Things that Nate thinks you should consider incorporating into your day/life. Before you venture off to stare at the next internet trash bin in flames, go follow Team Love on Twitter & Instagram & Facebook and then go get lost in their HUGE selection of ace releases.
