Monday Mix and Editors’ Picks

Monday Mix

After a week of midterms, just getting out of bed might seem like an impossible task. Ditch that double shot of espresso and turn on this playlist of pump-up songs instead, with heart-thumping, fist-bumping hits like Kendrick Lamar’s “I” and Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.”

Editors’ Picks

Film | Emily Holland, Culture Editor

This week’s pick: “White Bird in a Blizzard”

Based on a book by poet and fiction writer Laura Kasischke, “White Bird in a Blizzard” has generated a lot of buzz since premiering at Sundance this year. It’ll be nice to see Shailene Woodley back in a more character-driven role, after starring in some of the summer’s most popular blockbusters.

Music | Morgan Baskin, Assistant Culture Editor

This week’s pick: “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” cover by The Flaming Lips feat. Miley Cyrus & Moby

She may look like Big Bird in the video, but Cyrus has the pipes to make her cover of The Beatles’ “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds” more than just a throw-away pop track. And if this is what we can expect from the rest of the star-studded cover album, I’m already sold.

Lit | Tatiana Cirisano, Contributing Culture Editor

This week’s pick: D.C. Author Festival

The festival Saturday features over 70 D.C.-based writers and publishers like Washington Post journalist and author Neely Tucker, who will give talks, host readings and offer workshops.
