April’s favorite finds


“I just finished reading Every Day is for the Thief by Teju Cole, which is a novel told through the perspective of a young man that returns to Lagos after living in New York for 15 years. The idea of returning to a home that feels unfamiliar really resonated with me. The book also includes beautiful photos by Teju Cole interspersed throughout. Reading this book was a very meditative experience. Other favorites include Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Swing Time by Zadie Smith, Hot Milk by Deborah Levy, and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz.” - JOCELYN TSAIH

“The last book I read was The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin. I usually read essays and articles, but my favorite books are:
House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros, The McMaster Catalog, Earth Matters by Karen E. Milbourne, The River Between by Ngugi Wa Thiong'o, The Stranger by Albert Camus” - TAHIR CARL KARMALI

“The last thing I read was Anthony Bourdain's first book Kitchen Confidential. As a huge fan of his for the past decade or so, I was really interested to hear how it all started for him. Somehow, even though the book is almost 20 years old, it still feels incredibly fresh and relevant.” - ADRIAN VIENI


“I love Noughts and Crosses, just as it was very revolutionary as a novel growing up, it tackled race and class and it was just so different to see those themes in a young persons novel. “ - YIIGAA

Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson - a new friend of mine gifted me this after we both completed a self development and learning course. A really beautiful, short fable on changes in life. It was one I read over a few times before moving to Copenhagen from Sydney.” - OLIVIA CHYLINSKI

“I'm reading the Bardo Thodol which is known as the Tibetan book of the dead. But don't be fooled by the strong title is more fun and hopefully helpful than you might think. And afterall, wanting or not, sooner or later... My all time best could be C. G. Jung autobiography, where the father of psychoanalysis narrates his incredible discoveries during life and defines his legacy. Mind boggling at least.” - LUCA TOMBOLINI

“I recently finished The Society of Singularities - On the Structural Transformation of Modernity by Andreas Reckwitz - a sociological study about our post-modern society and how it praises individuality and pseudo-authenticity. “ - CHRISTOPH ZOUBEK

Rebel Without a Crew by Robert Rodriguez. It's Robert's journey that starts with him making money as a human guinea pig in labs to fund his film "El Mariachi", a film which he did with only seven thousand dollars, a borrowed crappy camera, and a few friends as actors. It's funny reading and very very inspirational.” - DIEGO FABRO

“Obviously I have a huge collection of children’s books and I suggest all adults to read a good fairytale once in a while. At the moment I am very drawn towards children’s books that are interactive in a way that the child participate throughout the reading. When I read the book ‘Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus’ I thought it to be a real funny and genius piece of work. I am a great fan of all the books by Hervè Tullet.” - LUCIA GAGGIOTTI

“The last book I discovered is ‘Homo Sapienne’ from Niviaq Korneliussen. This book is about the current Greenlandic society far from the stereotypes of «The Great North». It is a very interesting book in which we discover the life of 5 young adults in the capital of Greenland Nuuk.” - CAMILLE MICHEL

'“The latest book I discovered (well really more of a short story) was The Damned Human Race by Mark Twain. My favorite book of all time is probably The 48 Laws of Power.” - ALEX CADE

“Right now I'm reading Becoming Supernatural written by Dr. Joe Dispenza. I love books about astrology such as Relationships & Life Cycles.” - ALJA HORVAT

Real England: The Battle Against the Bland by Paul Kingsnorth is my current read, it talks about the globalisation of England and the previous, current and future status of English culture and what is happening to its relationship to the rest of the world. It goes on about pubs a bit too much for me but there is definitely interesting conversations in there.” - SIMON MARTIN

“My last one was the classic The Picture of Dorian Gray from Oscar Wilde. I really enjoyed Freedom from Jonathan Franzen, and I'm a big fan of the beat generation, so books like Howl (Allen Ginsberg), On the Road (Jack Kerouac) or Junkie (William S. Burroughs) will be always on my lists.” - FÁBIO MIGUEL ROQUE

Otherwise, i spend an unhealthy amount of time on instagram.” - ADRIAN VIENI

It's Nice That, Juxtapoz, Sight Unseen, booooooom” - JOCELYN TSAIH

Yelp - because I like going to cheap restaurants” - TAHIR CARL KARMALI

“I have a Robovac and smart scales which both have apps so I use them often to clean my home and keep track of my weight, BMI, bone mass etc. I really love Shazam too for letting me know the name of music I hear around me and then just everyday task apps like my banking app and Gmail app.” - MICHAEL PYBUS

The Favourite was a big one for me this past year, as well as Roma, Blackkklansman and Spiderman: Into the Spider-verse. But hands down my favourite movie I've seen in ages was Good Time. It was really tense, grinding, and moving, and had incredible performances from Robert Pattinson and the director/co-star Benny Safdie.” - ADRIAN VIENI

Wong Kar Wai and Christopher Doyle working together are pretty close to perfection on Fallen Angles, In the Mood for Love and Chungking Express. Also, You the Living or any film by Roy AndersonPaolo Sorrentino's The Great Beauty is quite magical. These are my favorites films and directors, but I wouldn't say they are recent fresh findings. I'm very open to recommendations!” - DIEGO FABRO

Paris Is Burning (1990) I always had hopes of being a big star. But as you get older, you aim a little lower. Everybody wants to make an impression, some mark upon the world. Then you think, you've made a mark on the world if you just get through it, and a few people remember your name. Then you've left a mark. You don't have to bend the whole world. I think it's better to just enjoy it. Pay your dues, and just enjoy it. If you shoot a arrow and it goes real high, hooray for you.’ - MICHAEL PYBUS

“I have too many, in terms of one day what I want to make, I love gritty British film, one that always sticks in my mind is Kidulthood. It was one of the first films of its kind that focused on Youth in London mood areas that film hasn’t really focused on before, including young some non. professional actors of ethnic minorities or working class backgrounds in a school that was in rough area and how everyone was effected. Although it may not of been completely accurate, and there may be themes that are problematic, I feel like it was a stepping stone for things like Top Boy now, and inspires something that I definitely want to create in the future , something honest and real focusing on youth London mood but love, giving a voice to People. “ - YIIGAA

RuPaul What’s the Tee with Michelle Visage Podcast - For any creative person out there wanting a professional career I highly recommend this podcast. RuPaul is a master of marketing and reinventing himself to maintain his relevance to culture. To hear him talk about his experiences with Michelle and guests trying to unpack what it takes to achieve success and then hold onto it is so enlightening.
