Straight from Brooklyn, this week's High Five! is brought to you by Lawrence & Leigh:
Enter the Void is an AWESOME movie! Unfortunately, I can't tell you anything about it, because you'll just have to experience it for yourself. The film is visually stunning, very intense, long, and it says something about our time on earth. Tokyo, psychedelics, and the Tibetan Book of the End are major inspirations for this movie, to give you a hint.
This is a 1967 jazzy, spoken word album about colors. Each poem is about a minute or two long and it intricately describes one of Nordine's 34 favorite colors, from orange to ecru. Ken Nordine is the master of spoken word—and a hit at any party.
3. Adult Onesie
Who wouldn't want to wear a cozy, fleece/flannel body suit that has rubber dots on the bottom of the feet around this time of year?! The onesie is waaaay more functional than the Snuggie and it is so warm and comfy, it gives a whole new meaning to the words "leisure suit." Toddlers know what's up!
New York might be the "world's capital," but that city doesn't know shit about burritos. We flew back to our native land of California just for the mexican food (oh yeah...and to be with family for the holiday...). Since we arrived, we've literally eaten burritos every other day, in order to reach our maximum burrito potential. Listen, a person's got to do what a person's got to do! What is the best way to eat a deliciously made S.F. burrito, you ask? Curled up in a onesie.
What happens when you take an ordinary, thirty-something-year-old Japanese man and place him in extraordinary, fantastical circumstances? The clear fascination of the wildly imaginative author, Huruki Murakami. Murakami uses a basic template in various ways, in various novels, blending the line of reality and fantasy, human and otherworldly, and singular consciousness and universal interconnectedness to such an extent that readers often lose sight of what is real. Our recommendations include: Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World (a quick and consuming read) and The Wind-up Bird Chronicle (a beautiful novel that will have you savoring all 607 pages).
To celebrate the end of the nine to five, a Green Light Go staff member or artist will leave you with their short list of favorite things, better known as the High Five!
