Latest From the Library

Donald Glover, the Triple Threat

Tue., Jan. 17
Recently, actor Donald Glover won two Golden Globes for his new TV show Atlanta, which is one of my favorite TV shows that debuted last fall. Glover is a man of many talents. In addition to acting, he's also a rapper and goes by the moniker, Childish Gambino. Back in December, Glover released his third album called Awaken, My Love. This album is vastly different from his previous albums, Camp and Because The Internet. Glover is known primarily as a rapper who sometimes sings but on this album he doesn't rap at all. It was a surprising change, but it works.

Whispers of a Good Friend

Tue., Jan. 10
This past Christmas, the world lost George Michael, which capped off the list of great musicians who left this Earth in 2016. As a kid, I grew up listening to George Michael because my father is a fan of him. I heard "Father Figure," "One More Try" and "Praying For Time" a lot over the years. I know that Michael had his share of personal issues, but I don't want to focus on that. I want to focus on his music and how it made me feel.
