Listen Up: Episode 25, DIY Books You Might Actually Use and the Shows Genuinely Worth Your Teevee Time
On this week’s episode of A Few Things with Claire and Erica, we’re discussing two acronyms on our winter agenda: DIY and TV, mainly because you can do both in sweatpants. First we’re rounding up our favorite instructional books to motivate you to make something...or even just to fantasize about being the kind of person who dyes her own clothes. Then we turn to our own personal TV guide, Danielle Nussbaum, quizzing her on the new shows worth committing to, programming for some Thanksgiving family time, and why the new Shonda Rhimes is...Shonda Rhimes (ok, that last one’s kind of a no-brainer).
Episode 25: DIY Books You Might Actually Use and the Shows Genuinely Worth Your Teevee Time // LISTEN
Let’s talk about: TV shows to watch while you’re DIY-ing.
The post-listen link-dumpage:
+ Do It Yourself: 50 Projects by Designers and Artists, for sleek-and-simple projects from masterminds like John Baldessari and Ladies & Gentlemen Studio.
+ The Modern Natural Dyer, for a super-interesting introduction to dyeing with plants and produce.
On TV shows, old and new...
+ Scream Queens, for the campiest (verging on offensive...so tread carefully) show you’ll ever watch.
+ On Hulu: Casual and Difficult People, which is like a modern Will & Grace starring Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner. The service is also now home to The Mindy Project, and we’re giving the new, edgier season two thumbs up.
+ On hardware: Apple TV, so you know which shows are on iTunes, Hulu, and Netflix (yasssss).
+ Coming soon (maybe): Murder Town USA, set in Claire’s hometown (eek!), but at least it has Jada Pinkett Smith playing a power lady?
