Things We Love: Alive staff picks

From the July 24, 2014 edition

Justin

Ab-Soul’s These Days…

It’s a mess at times, and, yeah, kinda bloated (that 20-minute “freestyle” is awful), but I’ve had this album on repeat for weeks and its faults have only become charms.

Brad

“Boyhood”

I didn’t think it could live up to the expectations. When it opens in Columbus in a few weeks, you’ll see that it does.

Alyse

“Orange is the New Black”I never thought I could be so emotionally invested in a prison show. I finished season two over the weekend, and now I want more!

Lauren K.

Tervis Tumblers

These magical cups are the perfect summer companion to homemade ice coffee and smoothies. Plus they come in a ton of designs!

Andy

Perfume Genius’ “Queen”

This song has me super excited for the new album.

Jesse

Brandie Posey and Brock Wilbur

These two comics stopped by the Tree Bar last Tuesday and absolutely killed it — as did locals Kamari Stevens and Laura Sanders. If either comes back, I’m there.

Abernathy

Top knots

The higher the hair, the closer to God.

Meghan

Kelly Moore Camera Bags

More purse than camera bag, it makes me feel incognito.
