Things We Love: Alive staff picks

From the February 20, 2014 edition

Justin:

“Atomic Bomb” by William Onyeabor

Much mystery surrounds the Nigerian musician, but this song might be the catchiest I’ve heard about a mass-killing device.

Brad:

PolyFauna

Radiohead's app is just a flat-out work of art: simple, immersive and oh-so-trippy.

Alyse:

Igloo Letterpress class

Three glorious hours learning, setting type by hand and printing with Nikki. Type nerd heaven!

Lauren K.:

Tea Time

The Cambridge Tea House is a wonderfully cozy place to have brunch and pretend you are in Downton Abbey. 

Andy:

Superdreamer Records

The newborn local label just released its first two albums — courtesy of Comrade Question and Psychic Wheels — and both rip.

Jesse:

“The Raid: Redemption”

The action (using Indonesian martial arts-style Pencak silat) in this film is breakneck fast and intensely badass. The upcoming sequel can’t get here fast enough, but the original is a must-see for action movie fans.

Abernathy:

“I am Divine” screening at Strongwater

Just when I thought I couldn’t love Strongwater and the Columbus LGBTQ community any more, they give me this beautiful gift.

Meghan:

Robert Mason's greeting cards

Thoughtful and funny, always unique.
