South Sound Staff Weekend Recommendations

Staying in this weekend? Yeah, us, too. Here are some of our staff’s recommendations for books; music; video games; and, apparently, lots of television.

“I’m re-watching The Office and also started Little Fires Everywhere — it’s totally riveting.”
— Zoe Branch, assistant editor of South Sound

“I’m currently reading a book, but its turning out to be a disappointment so I can’t in good conscience recommend it. I am, however, loving The Umbrella Academy on Netflix. Also, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist on NBC warms my heart.”
— Joanna Kresge, assistant editor of South Sound Business

“I’m reading a great sci-fi series called Red Rising by Pierce Brown. It is a fabulous escape at the end of each day.”
— Melia Wilkinson, account executive

Feel Good on Netflix is lovely.”
— Carlisle Huntington, intern

“The Criterion Channel — basically a curated streaming service of movies in the Criterion Collection — is on Roku now. So we’ve been watching some good artsy films, because my boyfriend is an extreme movie nerd.”
— Melissa McCarthy, digital staff writer

“I’ve just been listening to music, mostly Hellbound Glory’s new album, and working.”
— Jeff Burlingame, editor in chief of South Sound Business

“I have been binge watching Designated Survivor on Netflix.”
— Nikki Christopherson, sales and marketing concierge

“I’ve watched, like, three seasons of Seinfeld — it’s great background noise. I’m also currently playing Final Fantasy IX. It’s an old one, but I’ve never played it. So far, it’s really good.”
— Alex Schloer, lead designer

“I have been watching a cheesy show called Lucifer. I also watched The Stranger and I like Good Girls.”
— Lisa Patterson, editor in chief of South Sound
