Last Call is The Takeout’s online watering hole where you can chat, share recipes, and bullshit the night away. Here’s what we’ve been reading/watching/listening around the office today.
Six consecutive screenings of Groundhog Day
How much would someone have to pay you to watch Groundhog Day six times in a row? We debated this around the (virtual) office water cooler thanks to a marathon at the Roxy Theater, a rad little independent theater in my town of Missoula, Montana. The Roxy will screen the movie six times on Friday, the real Groundhog Dog, and if you sit through the whole shebang—no naps, no phone, no book—you get a Cosmic-level membership at the theater, which entitles you to free movies and popcorn for the year. I still think I’d go batshit insane first. [Kate Bernot]
Rainbow by Kesha
If you were blown away by Kesha’s performance on the Grammys the other night, I strongly encourage you to check out the entirety of her third album Rainbow. She kicks off with the minimalist “Bastards” (as in “don’t let the bastards get you down”), offers some fun throwbacks to her old club lifestyle in cuts like “Boogie Feet” with Eagles Of Death Metal, and even holds her own against Dolly Parton in “Old Flames.” Sure, “Praying” is the inarguable high point of the album, but lately I can’t stop listening to “Godzilla,” which ponders what happens if you take a giant lizard to the mall. The album’s astounding diversity displays that there is so much more to Kesha, so if you are at all intrigued, Rainbow is worth a listen. [Gwen Ihnat]
