Stuff I Recommend: September

No Name In The Street by James Baldwin

I read Notes of a Native Son recently as well, and while it was close to perfect, it didn’t quite enamor me this way this collection did. Baldwin is, at this point, in No Name, pissed about the sluggishness of racial equity in America, and it shows. His tone is approaching radical, but vivid memories on picket lines with other civil rights activists ignite any reader from any era, rightfully so.

Just Kids by Patti Smith

I haven’t finished this yet, and am about halfway through. Not only is it one of the most tender books I’ve ever read about friendship and young love, it’s also bursting with creative ways to consider memory and an inspiring look into the young lives of Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe. Truly a beautiful, special memoir.

Overjoyed by Half Japanese

the new LP from Jad Fair & company did not disappoint me. Released in a limited edition of white and blue spattered vinyl, the music suits the packaging- bright and pretty, punk but sweet. My favorite is “The Time Is Now.”

Archival Clothing

I’ve had a knapsack from Archival for the last two years, and it just keeps getting better with age. The durable canvas gains a beautiful patina, and the black fabric fades ever so slightly with exposure to sunlight each summer. The leather is getting softer and softer. It was probably the best money I have ever spent on myself. Other products I have from them are of equal quality and of superior design.

Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker by Three Floyds

My girlfriend adores IPAs, pale ales, and DIPA styles. She loves their bitterness and floral aromas. I too, enjoy them, but not quite on the fanatical level some beer drinkers do. CSB, from Three Floyd’s, however, is among the best I’ve had. With a complex malt backbone, pineapple and mango sweet finish and a generous presence of sticky, sugary hops, this is one of the craft beers worth your money.
