One Book, One Movie, and One Album Everyone Should Read, Watch, and Hear
Eh, no presh though. Live your life.
- •LolitaJAY-SUS. If 99% of pop culture is any indication, no one fucking knows what this book is about. Either that or it's just an unsettling coincidence the eponymous loooooooong suffering 12-year-old rape victim's name has become synonymous with "kid I'd like to fuck." Maybe we should all revisit?
- •Los Angeles Plays ItselfLos Angeles gets hilariously outsized amounts of hate. This absolutely delightful documentary presents a strong (and charmingly crotchety) counter argument that a lot of what's held against the city is actually an ungenerous misread of what makes LA singular and great. Oh, and it's also a casual reminder that three of the best films of their respective decades (Chinatown, Blade Runner & LA Confidential, preach) aren't just set here but about being here too.
- •Sam Cooke Live at the Harlem Square ClubThis is sort of a cop out, insofar as it's just music for anyone who likes music.
