Things We Love: Alive staff picks

From the December 12, 2013 edition

“Frances Ha” on Netflix

Noah Baumbach + Greta Gerwig = “Ahoy, sexy!”

Brad

Awards campaign for James Franco in "Spring Breakers"

An active "for your consideration" campaign dubbed "Consider This Shit" may actually get Franco's unhinged white rapper from Harmony Korine's wacked-out movie Oscar consideration. That's pretty cool.

Alyse

Radiant Orchid

2014 is going to be beautiful thanks to Pantone's Color of the Year.

Lauren K.

Repurposed jewelry

The necklace I got at Holiday Hop Popup Shop by The Heirloom Tomato. She takes apart vintage jewelry and then makes new jewelry out of several parts for a very unique piece. 

Andy

Year-end lists

I never tire of year-end lists, whether it’s the A.V. Club summing up its least essential albums or Spin naming its favorite albums of the year (even if it’s wrong about Kanye).

Jesse

Strongwater

Franklinton’s newest hangout is quite the fun spot for a drink (try the habanero- and pepper-infused rye) or to see some live music. This is My Suitcase’s final show was a raucous night of merriment Saturday.

Abernathy

Snow leopards

They are cuddly and eat from bottles sometimes.

Meghan

Pam’s Popcorn

Her Chicago-style popcorn is my kryptonite.
