Things We Love: Alive staff picks

From the April 3, 2014 edition


Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love”

After all these months of it being permanently lodged in my head, I still think “it’s the shit if I do say so myself, if I do say so myself.” #surfbort


Fantasy baseball

I know it’s like “Dungeons & Dragons” with sports, but I love it. Go, Space Monkeys!


Ted Mosby

Cool story, bro! I like the part about the blue French Horn.

Lauren K.:

Great Scott!

I love Think Geeks’ April Fool’s Day fake products, and hopefully some of them will actually become a reality. This year I hope the Flux Capacitor Car charger and the Das Can-in-Stein will eventually hit the shelves.


Cloud Nothings’ Here and Nowhere Else

It’s clear frontman Dylan Baldi spent some of the band’s time away absorbing the rawest parts of Nirvana’s In Utero.



Showtime’s dramedy about a struggling lower class family doing whatever it takes has gone especially dark — and excellent — this season, and should have a great finale Sunday. Also, Emmy Rossum!


Surly girl spinach dip

I got that s--- on speed dial. 


Dogs Only Medical Center

Best dog doctors there are.
