* Providing the A's to the 5 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Q's today is    Levvy    — a singer-songer out of Portland whose been following up 2018’s nice ‘   Hit The Dance Floor Continental   ’ with even more niceness in 2019 (and most recent to drop ‘Got A Lot To Go’ can be found on the HI54 Mix CD ‘   NOT LOST / NOT FOUND   ’).

#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”?

This is a tough question, but I would have to go with Jassbusters by Connan Mockasin. The album is a collection of great jazzy tunes and it maintains a certain sense of humor throughout.

This album inspired me musically and also reminds me not to take myself too seriously every time I listen.

#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)?

Twin Peaks. Hands down my favorite show on television. David Lynch created a really special universe of characters and supernatural mysteries.

The show can be funny, scary, confusing, and everything in between. When I watch the show, coffee tastes better and I become a better person in day to day life.

#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)?

I have always loved 'Life of Pi' by Yann Martel.

The movie is great, but the book is better.

#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?

Youtube is a personal favorite. I haven't found another site that offers pretty much whatever I want to see at any given moment. From podcasts to sketch shows, it has everything. If it went away, I'd be sad, but I probably would be a much healthier human not spending my time on a lot of useless material.

It's as if Youtube is a collection of high end restaurants and fast food chains - there are quality, informative videos to watch, but there is so much more trash available to watch that it's hard to have self control when confronted with the McDouble of the internet.

#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.

Workout. It really sucks in the moment, but it really improves my body, sense of self, and overall attitude in life.

I hate gyms, but it's a sacrifice I make to function better physically and cognitively.


OK folks, there you have it. Things that Levyy thinks you should consider incorporating into your day/life. Before you log off and go get your heart racing out in the irl, make sure to follow Levyy on the Instagram and then give ‘Got A Lot To Go’ a listen below…
