A Good Book

Ann Patchett (did you read her latest, The Dutch House? Do it.) on why we need life-changing books right now. "This beautiful world had been available to me all along but I had never bothered to pick up the keys to the kingdom."

A Good Follow

We went down the David Byrne rabbit hole after his incredible performance on Saturday Night Live, which is where we discovered Reasons to be Cheerful. An online non-profit editorial project "that is tonic for tumultuous times", and we are not ones to ever turn down a good tonic.  

A Good Album

We dove headfirst into Fiona Apple's new album, "Fetch the Bolt Cutters" and while we don't consider ourselves critics in the least, we cannot help but agree with The New York Times in stating that it is a "is a bold, cathartic, challenging masterpiece."
