One Book, One Movie, and One Album That I Think Everyone Should Read, Watch, and Hear
Thanks for the request, @dustinboone!
- •Book: Aziz Ansari - Modern RomanceA very interesting, insightful, and surprisingly scientific look at dating in the age of dating sites and apps. With the help of sociologist Eric Klinenberg he collected data from places around the world, like New York City, Tokyo, and Buenos Aires, to investigate different dating cultures. Oh, and it's also quite funny.
- •Movie: Hannibal Takes EdinburghA documentary that follows Hannibal Buress, one of my favorite comedians, around during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, produced by Judd Apatow. Hannibal stayed in Scotland for 28 days and performed every single day. What I really love about this is that you get a good look at his process as a comedian, both on stage and off. If you're interested in stand-up, this is definitely a documentary I would recommend. You can watch it on Netflix.
- •Album: Chance The Rapper - Coloring Book (it's actually a mixtape, but I feel like that counts as well)This is Chance The Rapper's third mixtape, and holy shit is it good. You can hear how much he has grown as an artist on this mixtape. Powerful lyrics, great beats, some lovely gospel infusions, and some great featured artists. Check out @JennyJLee's list of some of the best lyrics from the mixtape: https://li.st/l/3Fxeypi0WYQXonqyO8Eqg5
