The Most Extraordinary, with Questlove [Sponsored]

By

You know Questlove. You, like us, probably love him: The Roots drummer, Tonight Show band member, DJ, author, and activist is an admirable and thoroughly lovable guy. With all those monikers, we figured Questlove was the perfect DJ to turn mundane, sad desk lunches into extraordinary Lunch Breaks. He’s spinning both #PerrierLunchBreak parties in NYC, and we tapped him just before his most recent set (made extraordinary by Perrier® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water) to find out his dream lunch date, tunes, and venue. Hint: turns out Questlove Dreams of Sushi.

‘Parks and Recreation’ Season 7 Episode 7 Recap: “Donna and Joe”

By

Even with the plotline centered around Donna’s wedding, the season seven midpoint of Parks and Recreation was action-packed for more than just the Meagles. Jen Barkley shows up and goads Ben into running for Congress. Tom and Lucy take a leap, even after Ron inadvertently screws it up. We finally get a good look at Leslie and Ben’s kids, with Rachel Dratch (!!!) as their overwhelmed nanny, Roz. It’s revealed that Jerry/Larry/Terry is actually named Gary (please say this marks the end of this joke). Questlove shows up as Donna’s estranged baby brother, Levondrius, and smashes a vintage microwave on the dance floor, giving Donna the touch of drama she craved for her wedding. Truly, “Donna and Joe” had it all.

D’Angelo’s ‘Black Messiah’: An Instant Classic That Mixes Politics, Love, and Artistic Triumph

By

Black Messiah, D’Angelo’s first new album in almost 15 years, doesn’t feel like the tortured manuscript of a man struggling with doubt and questioning his self-worth. Instead, it sounds like the result of a world-weary artist’s maturation. It’s warm, inviting, smooth — and at times, exceedingly real about the world we live in now. D’Angelo records sound like every soul and jazz record you’ve ever heard filtered through the experience of the black man in America at the turn of the century. Black Messiah is no exception.
