Stewie’s Picks: November 2018

It’s getting way chilly here in Black Rock, CT, and, well, I guess I have a baby now – so it’s been harder to get outside and walk around the block much. Therefore, I’m officially in homebody binge mode! Here are my picks of the things I’ve been obsessed with bingeing this month.

Make Your Body Work [Podcast]

I think I’m a little late to the party on this one (It looks like Dave was really active a few years ago?) but I’m getting a ton of insight and benefit from listening to the Make Your Body Work podcast, as well as checking out some of Dave’s full workout videos and the Lose 10 in 4 podcast (which I guess is more of a video series and less of a podcast, but what do I know? You do you man.) He doesn’t waste time chatting up a co-host or his guests and the editing quality is pretty good. It’s succinct and no nonsense but also chock full of fact-based and research backed insights along with interesting interviews with experts in the field. I’m curious what other nutrition and fitness buffs think but to my novice brain, it’s easy to digest and interesting. I’m making avocado toast on whole grain bread tomorrow in honor of what I’ve learned so far. 🥑😋 Post a comment if you have any other fitness or nutrition podcast recommendations or if you dig Dave’s stuff.

“Legends of the Summer” by Meek Mill [Music]

I didn’t realize I was into hip hop as much as I am, but this album has been my go-to jam for the past few weeks when I need to grind through work. I was definitely inspired to explore new rap jams (besides mainstream magic like Drake and Kanye West) on Spotify after working ComplexCon 2018… and having no idea who anyone is. Recommendations really appreciated here! Leave a comment below with other artists I should check out or links to your personal playlists. 🎧 I look forward to giving a listen.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse [TV Show]

This has consistently been my binge-worthy guilty pleasure every single season. There’s something about seeing what new roles Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk will cast the actors in that’s addictive. I also love seeing how older season’s storylines might intertwine, and what new fun and freaky supernatural elements make it into the show… that always makes it a must see for me every season. I was thrilled it was a Murder House and Coven crossover but the Murder House aspect felt small. I was hyped to see Dylan McDermott return even if his stay was brief. And I’m enthralled by the new blonde bad boy on the block Michael Langdon. He’s hypnotic and gorgeous… but I guess the son of Satan would be? Cathy Bates as always is a show stealer in any role – even as a Satanist robot. I also love Sarah Paulson in her multiple roles – she can pull off so so much. Taissa Farmiga, Billie Lourde, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy… gah I love all those witches so much! Feels like a warm hug seeing the gang back together. The Coven is back bitches, so cast a circle, step back, and let the witches do their thing. 🔮 Leave a comment if you’re as AHS obsessed as me.
