Sketchy Recs: What to Do This Weekend: 25-27 September

I turn 24 on Sunday. I figured, why not suggest some of my favorite media for you to enjoy this weekend? Whether or not you can actually find most of these is a horse of a different color.

Film: Rosemary's Baby - the greatest film ever made.

Film: My Fair Lady - if I had my way, there would be mandatory viewing of the Ascot Gavotte sequence every day for everyone in the world. Someday...

Film: Dumbo - the crowning jewel in Disney's animated output? I think so.

Book: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood - the smartest dystopic novel you'll love, hate yourself for loving, be afraid of reading, yet refuse to put down.

Book: Zombie by Joyce Carol Oates - perhaps the greatest novel ever written about perversion, serial killing, lobotomies, and sex zombies.

Book: The Conjure Wife by Fritz Leiber - the first, and greatest, heart-stopping twists in modern horror literature. It's breathtaking. When the bookjacket says watch out for page x, they mean it. It's a suckerpunch and really unprecedented in literature.

Have a great weekend everyone!
