  1. Friends Recommend – Ben Ferguson

    February 27, 2013 by Kaitlin

    It’s baaaaaaaack. After months of the darkness and coldness and flu-infested subways that are a New York winter, I present the return of the podcast. Or my podcast, anyway.

    Even though I met Ben Ferguson more than halfway through my time in college, he somehow seems to occupy a space in most of my Davidson memories—the fun ones, at least. In school, I kinda thought of him as a little brother, but now, since he’s the New York pro, I more often end up coming to him for advice rather than the other way around. This boy knows his way around New York; specifically, which bars in Williamsburg serve chicken fingers (he’s from Alabama, y’all).

    This is us in…2006-ish?

    I was super into slicked back hair and triple chins. Ben was into looking like he was 12 when he was 20.

    I was super into slicked back hair and having a shiny forehead. Ben was into looking like he was 12 when he was 20.

    Now we’ve got much better hair, thank goodness.

    We fancy now.

    Ben’s a voracious consumer of books and movies and music, and a superb writer, so I was eager to hear about his picks. He went with some things grounded in the heartbreaking realities of human existence and other things that function on a different level entirely (so long for now, Powder).

  2. February 2013 Playlist

    February 1, 2013 by Kaitlin

    January went by in a flash. A freezing, blustery, you’ve-got-to-be-kidding me flash.

    Thus, I didn’t get to spend quite as much time really crafting and cultivating a list as I would have liked. Fortunately, I have friends who do put forth that kind of time and effort towards discovering new music, and I’ve shamelessly stolen some of their suggestions for this list. There are also a bunch of songs I Shazamed in bars around New York.

    Or during episodes of Girls.
