HERE WE GO:
Tune of the week: I have been alternating between Roosevelt’s “Sign” and Pilotpriest’s “Don’t Let The Dark Times Get You Down” all week long.
Book I’m currently reading: I just started The Boys Club by Erica Katz and it is Wolf of Wall Street but with a female lead and so far is very good.
Tune of the week: I am all Run the Jewel’s “RTJ4″ all the time. Currently on repeat is “the groud below“, which samples Gang of Four’s 1979 song “Ether.”
TV show I recommend: I know I’m behind with this but I’m currently watching The Last Dance, which now that it is on Netflix is 100% a series everyone needs to watch, as it is both inspirational and I think a really important look at sports history (or actually just history in general). Also I keep calling it Save The Last Dance in my head because I am stuck in 2001.
Movie I recommend: Before Sunrise is now on HBOMax and is absolutely one of my favorite movies ever to watch and re-watch and watch again and ask yourself the forever question, WOULD YOU GET OFF THE TRAIN WITH ETHAN HAWKE IN VIENNA? Yes. Absolutely.
Something I’m excited about: All month long we are celebrating National Black Owned Business Month with a series of instagram takeovers on BYT’s instagram live and the lineup is very special and features some incredible businesses. See the full lineup here.
Chief Creative Officer of our sister agency, Exactly (and new mom).
