    BEST OF 2017: Erin Waller, Library Director

    Our “Best Of 2017” series will be a bit different than most. Rather than having the staff write about things released this year, we’ve elected to allow anything they’ve listened to/played/read/watched this year that they’ve enjoyed. Favorite programs we’ve hosted also might make lists as well. Our first installment comes to us from our director, Erin Waller.

    Baskets (FXX)
    One of the least “talked about” but best television shows being presently made. Louie Anderson gives one of the best performances ever on the small (or big) screen by portraying the mother (!) of a failed, classically trained clown (played by Zach Galifinakis). This is definitely for fans of strange, black comedy, but is so sweet and emotionally resonating.

    Beth Ditto- Fake Sugar (album)
    Beth is my Arkansas girl. She is Gen X from a small AR town—Just like me! So, we, like, see the world the same way. This is her debut solo effort, after her long-time band, Gossip disbanded around 2012. Pretend Lady Gaga and Paul Simon had a musical baby—that’s what this is.

    Dirty John (podcast)
    If you like long-form podcasts of a true crime nature, this is your next stop. Dirty John tells the tale of career con-man, John Meehan. That’s all I’ll tell you…just go along for the ride.

    Search Party (TBS)
    A really well-made and interesting television series starring Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development). It’s like Nancy Drew meets Gossip Girl —Imagine Veronica Mars as a vapid Brooklyn Millennial. It’s a mystery show, but it’s really about the search for honesty and truth in the ego-centric and uninspiring world of 20-somethings.

    Missing Richard Simmons (podcast)
    Another great long-form mystery podcast. Not true crime, more pop culture…but a mystery none-the-same. If you haven’t heard, Richard Simmons, the loud and colorful fitness guru of the 80’s and 90’s has become a recluse in recent years. The host was a friend and wants to find out what happened to Richard. I learned a lot about Richard Simmons I didn’t know and it made me really love him.
