Things We Love: Alive staff picks

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Justin McIntosh

Our dearly departed (for another gig) former editor was too humble to let me do this last week, but who's going to stop the new interim editor, Justin? He was a great boss, a great person and a great advocate for Columbus. -Brad Keefe

"Luckiest Girl Alive" by Jessica Knoll

Ani FaNelli seems to have the perfect life until details of her dark traumatic past resurface. Intriguing and riveting, this is the second book that I've been unable to put down this summer. -Alyse Kordenbrock

Wilco'sStar Wars

The Chicago rockers recently released their new album for free online with no warning, a fitting introduction to what might be the most freewheeling, unshaven collection of tunes Jeff Tweedy and Co. have released in ages. - Andy Downing

A double-Amy double-date

There's no better way to spend a lazy Sunday than checking out two amazing movies featuring Amys. A back-to-back screening of the Amy Winehouse documentary "Amy" and Amy Schumer's fantastic comedy "Trainwreck" was a perfect way to end the weekend. -Jesse Tigges

My new mac-and-cheese yellow Moleskine notebook

Office supplies shouldn't give me this much joy. -Abernathy Miller

Saint Motel

You probably know their song "My Type," but their full length and EP are full of gems. One of my favorites is "Benny Goodman" from Voyeur. GIVE ME ALL THE HORNS, PLEASE. - Meghan Ralston
