Why aren’t you reading This Recording?

Oh, This Recording, how do we love you? Let us count the ways. 

[This Recording is our favorite destination for in-depth arts and culture essays. Famous for meaty articles with tons of great pictures, they are, simply put, our high school crush times a dozen.]

Anyway, we promised counting.

  1. You guys remind us of Mojo, in that you cover whatever you feel like. Not just whatever topic sends you the most press releases.
  2. The insane amount of Orson Welles articles you’ve written. [a short sampling: here; here; here; here ]
  3. Vladimir Nabakov’s correspondences.
  4. That story about how Audrey Hepburn was really sad.
  5. The making of Bonnie and Clyde.
  6. You managed to make Barbara Streisand fascinating.
  7. The State!
  8. Your celebration of some architectural photographer we’ve never heard of but now love.
  9. That story about Mia Farrow and Sinatra meeting. [Bonus, we forgot how adorable Mia was back then.]
  10. These weird Bowie pics are worth the price of admission, but the story is just as good.

We bet you didn't think you'd see Bette Midler on Ziggy Stardust's lap today, did you?


Seriously, it’s Friday, you’re not getting any work done. Get lost in This Recording.
