What entertainment have you been into lately?
I’m currently IN LOVE with Best Coast’s second album, “The Only Place.” It’s way less pop than its first record, but I’m OK with that. I relate to it so much.
I’m sad to say I’m NOT in love with Scissor Sisters’ “Magic Hour.” SS is one of my favorite bands of all time, but I just can’t get into it. Maybe I need to give it a few more listens.
A few weeks ago, I went to buy goodies at the Third Man Rolling Record Store when it came through Oxford, and they were blasting King Tuff’s “Was Dead.” Had never heard of him previously but I fell in love. Such an amazing, fun album. He just released a new one, which I hope to pick up soon.
I bought the Azealia Banks EP, “1991,” and I like parts of it but not the whole thing.
The Gaslight Anthem’s new single, “45,” is one of the best songs I’ve heard this year.
I saw “Avengers” twice, not only because I’m a huge Joss Whedon nerd but also because I just love that movie. It gets better every time I see it.
I’m reading the new Sookie Stackhouse novel, “Deadlocked.” Sookie, honey, normally you’re a little quicker to catch on... let’s get on the ball and solve this murder already, huh? OH: TRUE BLOOD IS BACK ON SUNDAY.
I watched most of “Hatfields & McCoys” but didn’t care to finish it. I dig lots of good action, but the violence in that felt gratuitous. The characters were so unforgiving and full of hatred, so it was hard to like them, root for them, anything, so I just stopped caring about any of them.
