You’ve gotta…

Listen…it, it’s been a week huh? There really isn’t much to say about it that has not been said yet. So, take the weekend. Relax, listen to the new Kings of Leon album on your coffee run Saturday morning, watch a pretty funny new show (Mascots) Saturday night, do some heavy reading on your favorite dark poet, eat some fall themed chili and open that bottle of wine. It is time for some #SelfCare right? Also, don’t turn on CNN, just don’t. It’s not worth it anymore.

There’s one album that you need to hear this week, even if you probably won’t end up liking it the first time through. It’s a grower. Lot’s of love for the new Luke Cage series on Netflix, but since we’re still suckers for the true crime genre, we’ll be checking out this new documentary instead. Also, love him or hate him, you need to read this Obama interview. Since it’s finally starting to feel like fall, why not try to make your own cider donuts? And last but not least, a fall beer that has nothing to do with pumpkin. You’ve gotta…
