If It Bleeds

In Bookstores

Stephen King is a name even non-readers should know. A number-one New York Times bestselling author, legendary storyteller and master of short fiction. Ring a bell? Yes? Good. In If It Bleeds, the author features four new novellas entitled Mr. Harrigan's Phone, The Life of Chuck, Rat and the title story, If It Bleeds. Each one as intriguing, frightening and shocking as the last. If you want an easy but engaging quarantine read, this page-turner is it.

Middleditch & Schwartz

Streaming on Netflix

If the current closures of comedy clubs, theaters and bars has left an improv-shaped hole in your heart, this is for you. It's a rare treat to see great improv that clicks, outside of a live venue, but Thomas Middleditch and Ben Schwartz have done it. They're taking their two-man live tour and turning it into not one, not two, but three separate Netflix comedy specials that perfectly blend the goofy and the brilliant.

Air Fear of God 1 “Triple Black”

Available at 10 am EDT

Nike and Fear of God's designer/founder, Jerry Lorenzo, team up to exemplify the future of luxury streetwear with performance innovation. Described as "comfortable on the runway as it is on the hardwood," the shoe exudes attainable opulence in the most subtle ways. The all-black colorway seems to add, rather than detract, from the signature features that makes this shoe so unique.
