Entertainment: What to Watch, Listen to, and Read

Listen to

Ana’s Ears: Vampire Weekend. Modern Vampires of the City, their third album, is probably the best new release of the year. With a wide variety of influences from numerous genres, there’s something for everybody. Plus the lead singer’s Twitter is a great time for all involved.

Alt-J. Not just keys on a keyboard, Alt-J is an English experimental band with nonsensical lyrics and trippy music videos that tie in with their catchy music.

Not Blurred Lines. Please no.

Megan’s Ears: We Need Medicine by the Fratellis

Released: October 7, 2013

This Scottish band will sure to send a jar of sweet jams to you. The Fratellis sound like other popular bands such as the Arctic Monkeys, (“She’s Not Gone Yet But She’s Leaving” is a tricked out song where Jon Fratelli duplicated and perfectly internalized Alex Turner’s voice) The Kinks, and The Wombats.

Watch:

Ana’s Eyes: Breaking Bad.

Now that the show has ended, it’s the perfect time to catch up with Walter White’s meth-cooking shenanigans.

You’re Next. Although this movie appears to be a cliche horror movie, You’re Next is actually the anti-cliche horror movie and verges on a parody at time. It has equal parts of comedy and gore, and a heroine that isn’t a complete idiot.

Megan’s Eyes: The Living Wake

Mike O’Connell and Jesse Eisenberg are two peas in a casket. This movie is not the Social Network meets pizza delivery boy, but rather a beautiful piece on taking control of one’s inevitable demise.

What To Read:

Megan’s ReadLet’s Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris.

The titles says it all.
