Justin

World Cup memes

From Robin van Persie’s flying header to the Luis Suarez bite, this World Cup has been made infinitely better with gifs and snark. Thanks, internet!

Brad

Blackberry Bourbon Fizz

This Thug Kitchen recipe has become my go-to summer drink. Smash blackberries. Add bourbon and Reed's ginger ale. Then chill.

Alyse

The Lego Movie

I'm a little late on this, BUT I just watched it and it was awesome. So awesome that "Everything is Awesome" is stuck in my head.

Lauren K.

Cupcakes!!!!!

Specifically, peanut butter fluffernutter cupcakes made by Alyse and my friend Christy for my birthday!! Best surprise at work ever!

Andy

Antlers’ Familiars

This gorgeous album is far more alien and unfamiliar than its title would have you believe.

Jesse

Rectify

This underrated drama, currently airing its second season on the Sundance Channel, is about a man released from prison (19 years later) when his life sentence is vacated. It’s utterly brilliant, and Season 1 is streaming on Netflix. You’re welcome.

Abernathy

June 2014.

Get Right. Hank3. Pride. ComFest. In that order.

Meghan

Antibiotics

Because science and medicine are good.
