It took me a while to pick up Chris Bower’s Little Boy Needs Ride, but Bower is a reliably dark, funny, and compelling storyteller. This is Bower’s first collection of stories, illustrated by Chicago artist Susie Kirkwood, and I am fully prepared to laugh my weird ass off.

Watch:

Netflix just added the documentary “Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer” to their offerings this month, and considering the fact that members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Katya Nenasheva were arrested for doing a prison demonstration this week, it seems appropriate to get around to watching it.

Listen:

In Colour by Jamie xx of the band the xx is getting radically good reviews all over the place. It’s Jamie xx’s first debut album following some remixes, and apparently it’s “dazzling” and “glittering” and all sorts of other visual-aural synesthetic adjectives, and a dance album to boot, so no doubt a very good way to spend a Saturday night at home.

Make:

hair jewelry

I just shaved off most of my hair and asked my stylist to save it for me, so I’m going to make hair jewelry with it! I know, I know, these days it seems unhinged and potentially dirty to wear hair as jewelry, but hey, man, I paid a lot for the dye job that got cut off and it seems like a good and relatively rare art material. Besides, it was cool in the 1800s. I’m just bringin’ it back.
