Things We Love: Alive staff picks

By Alive staff
From the January 23, 2014 edition

Justin McIntosh:

Thuuz Sports app

Rates games on how exciting they are in the moment, and alerts me when one’s worth tuning in. I rarely end up watching, but it’s nice knowing something crazy’s going down somewhere.

Brad Keefe:

Chef Marcus Meacham

We can't wait to see what the Wu Tang-and-bacon-loving Meacham has in store when Bodega returns from a one-month hiatus for renovations (but you can bet that it'll be better than a cheap grilled cheese).

Alyse Kordenbrock:

“The Book of Mormon”

Religious satire at its finest. Go see it when it hits Columbus in May!

Lauren Kuntz:

Private Eyes Watching You

Well not you … but you should watch “Veronica Mars.” Two out of two Alive employees recommend it.

Andy Downing:

Holly

The sophomore album from Nick Waterhouse is a fiery blast of retro-soul.

Jesse Tigges:

Philosophy by Rust Cohle

“True Detective” is brilliant and bleak, mainly because of Rust’s (Matthew McConaughey) existential beliefs: “I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution.” Right on.

Abernathy Miller:

Robert Burns Night dinner plans

I am not eating haggis though.

Meghan Ralston:

Satellite radio

I want ALL the channels.
