"Star Wars Rebels"

The best Star Wars (moving-picture) thing to come out since I was in Underoos.


"All Hands" by Doomtree

A new album from the Minneapolis indie hip-hop collective is cause for celebration. I just wish I didn't have to go to Ann Arbor to see them live. #noohio


Faux Mac 'n' Cheese

Cheese. Butter. Spaghetti squash. Oh my yum!

Lauren K.


A scripted show by VH1. Yes, I know you're skeptical, so was I. But with its great soundtrack and silly fashion, it stole my heart.


Seventh Son's Oubliette

This oil-black imperial stout might be my favorite local brew.


"Cat's Cradle" by Kurt Vonnegut

Vonnegut has long been one of my favorite authors, and I can't believe I hadn't read this seminal work before. It's an amazing exploration of storytelling.


Blink 182

RIP seventh grade memories.


Nikon D3s

This baby is heavy, but worth the weight. Great resolution and a high ISO capability made this my favorite camera a long time ago. I call mine "The Money Maker."
