Stuff We Dig Vol 64



“Molly’s Game”

Go inside the celebrity-filled, high-stakes world of underground poker in “Molly’s Game,” which tells the story of Molly Bloom’s famous poker games in L.A. and NYC that attracted celebrities, pro athletes and millionaires. The film is based on Bloom’s own true story told in her book and brought to life by Aaron Sorkin, who is most famous for TV shows like “The West Wing” and films such as “The Social Network” and “Moneyball.” This is his directorial debut. It stars Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”) as Bloom, plus Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Michael Cera. (In theaters now)


“The Post”

One of the most famous journalistic moments in history is the basis of “The Post,” the true story about The Washington Post’s decision to publish The Pentagon Papers and the pushback with the Nixon administration. And it features one of film’s most famous casts. “The Post” is directed by Steven Spielberg and stars Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, three icons who are working together are as a trio for the first time. The rest of the cast is great too, as Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Alison Brie and Zach Woods. (In theaters Jan. 12)



“High Maintenance”

HBO has embraced the quirky show following a marijuana delivery man in New York City and now “High Maintenance” is getting a second season. The show, which is a no-frills, boundary-pushing look at life, started as a web series that grew popular enough for HBO to give it a shot. “High Maintenance” doesn’t conform to TV norms, however. The shows aren’t 30 minutes or 60 minutes. They’re between five and 12 minutes, each with a different set of characters, the delivery man — known as The Guy — is the only constant. (Series 2 premieres Jan. 19 on HBO)


“Drunk History”

If you’re not watching “Drunk History” at this point in your life, why not? This Comedy Central jewel is a brilliant idea executed to perfection. It retells important (and even not-so-important) moments in history — but the guest storyteller is drunk, so the stories may not be 100 percent accurate. The show features a number of guests and Season 5 will include Seth Rogen, Jack Black, Method Man, Weird Al, Joel McHale and lots more. (Premieres Jan. 23 on Comedy Central)



Ty Segall

Prolific rocker Ty Segall returns with a new album in 2018 — because what else would you expect from him? Segall, a garage-rock staple, is stretching his sound on “Freedom’s Goblin,” which has a little bit more soul and funk than his previous lo-fi work. Hailing from SoCal, the 30-year-old Segall has a number of bands and side projects beyond his main hustle, so he’s a busy dude. But “Freedom’s Goblin” sounds like it might be his most complete and compelling album yet. (Available Jan. 26)


Big K.R.I.T.

Here’s hoping you didn’t miss one of the best hip-hop albums of 2017, but if you did, allow us to help you correct that. Big K.R.I.T. dropped his long-awaited double album, “4eva Is A Mighty Long Time” in October, but it’s starting to get more of the attention it deserves a few months later. Simply put: If you dig OutKast, you’ll dig K.R.I.T., whose Southern hip-hop style is a direct descendent of Big Boi and Andre even though he hails from Mississippi rather than Atlanta. It’s soulful, funky and honest — something different than the same ol’ trap music that dominates the south. (Available now)


Glow in the Dark toilet paper

If you’ve been in the bathroom in the dark at night and struggling to find the toilet paper, then we have the best possible solution: Glow in the dark toilet paper. Or if you’re just looking for a great gag gift, this will also work for that. You just might feel guilty flushing it because it looks so cool. (Available now on Amazon)


Monster Mushions

Here’s a great way to show someone you care about them — turn their face into a big ol’ pillow. That’s what Monster Mushions does. You can submit a hi-res photo of someone’s face and they’ll turn it into a 23-inch by 15-inch custom pillow. This seems like a gift that no one would ever forget, even if they’d want to. ($33.69 on
