Karl Ove Knausgaard’s “My Struggle: Book Four”

Everyone, it seems, is struggling with a little Knausgaard fatigue. But not me. I’m just as enthralled by the fourth book as I was the first three.


Meg Myers

I’ve been beating the drum on Meg Myers for about a year now, but if you saw her set in a sold-out Basement on Monday, you know why. You also won’t likely see her in a venue that intimate the next time she comes to town.


Luna Lovegood Poodle

I told you she's my best friend! She turned three this week!

Lauren K.

Quest Bars

They make a great quick breakfast. They have 20 grams of protein and are actually tasty. 


Happy hour on Zoe’s patio

Half-off drafts and plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy this spring weather.


“Mad Men”

There’s no other series like it, and it went out on a perfect note. Don, Peggy, Roger, Joan and everyone — even Pete — will be missed.


Rob Halford

He trademarked the phrase “Metal God” for Christ’s sake.


Cats on Synthesizers in Space

It's exactly what it sounds like, and it's the best "follow" I have ever made on Facebook.
