On the Dial



Brett: I saw 'Swiss Army Man' last week and to my surprise, it was really great. I had low expectations for the movie to be a cheesy, bro-loving, coming of age story, but it was more complex than that. You have to stick with it and get past the fart jokes to be rewarded with the progression of the story and twisted ending. The acting is solid and the concept itself is entertaining enough.

In preparation for Book Fort at Pitchfork Festival this weekend, I reached out to my friend, Cassandra, to give me the good good on the bands playing the festival this year. She is one of the hippest kids I know, so I trust her opinion on what's cool. Other than the acts I'd like to catch (Twin Peaks, Brian Wilson, Beach House, Broken Social Scene), she enlightened me about Whitney, Car Seat Headrest, and Porches. Whitney just played at 4th & 4th Festival in Columbus last weekend, where they then played a super rad after-party-house-show until 3 am. I'll be selling books most of the weekend, but will catch as many sets as I can. Come say "hi" at our booth and drink a beer dressed in one of our sick Two Dollar Radio k00zies. 


Eric: I didn't see any movies. I'm not going to Pitchfork this weekend. All I do is read submissions and drive the kids to and from summer camp. I've gone from a kid who played baseball hoping it would rain, to a parent whose kid plays baseball hoping it'll rain every night.

All exhaustion and negativity aside, we are working on a project that I'm pretty excited about. Similar to our movie production wing, it's a new, creative way of storytelling that incorporates our authors. More on that to come soon. It'll drop this fall.
