* Providing the A's to the 5 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Q's today is Jordan Prince, an American singer-songer based in Germany with a lovely new album '12 Songs For 12 Friends' dropping soon, a taste of which you can sample here.

#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”?

Right now I'm really into Sam Evian's song "Need You," Henry Wolfe's song "Someone Else," and anything by Courtney Barnett, Phoebe Bridgers, or S. Carey. Oh, also this new group called NADINE has a killer debut out.

My friend Vivi has tried to get me into this band Brazilian Girls for ages, and it finally worked! So I'm really into them right now as well.

#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)?

Well, I'm re-watching American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson, so I'd recommend that.

here's still some films I haven't seen that I'm dying to see like Ladybird or The Shape of Water. Greta Gerwig is incredible.

#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)?

Three books I'll always recommend to anyone: The Brief, Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz (this was really my friend when I moved abroad), Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins (the classic enlightenment book you read by chance in college), and Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler (one of the best recommendations I ever got from a girlfriend).

#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?

Right now I'm pretty addicted to the my Podcasts app. I listen to more stories and news than music some days, so it would definitely be a bummer if that disappeared.

#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 don't really give advice because it's hypocritical of me to do so haha! I don't do much of anything the right way. But I will say it's good to learn how to be the jackass in certain situations. When someone you trust is telling you you're wrong, don't worry if being wrong makes you embarrassed for a minute or a few hours... in the long run, it's more important that you respect the person who was brave enough to tell you something, and try not to repeat the mistakes they called out.
