Keeping Up (Vol. 47)

by Darren Paltrowitz

Here are some more quick picks for you, the loyal reader:

heideckerwood_nowhere_150MUSIC: Heidecker & Wood / Starting From Nowhere is the debut album from Tim Heidecker and Davin Wood, two folks best known for their work on “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” The album is largely inspired by 1970s soft-rock –- often referred to nowadays as “yacht rock” –- coming across as sound-alikes of artists like Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, and Seals & Croft. Therefore, a subtler form of comedy than Heidecker is generally known for. (heideckerandwood.com)

SHOW: The League I stumbled across this series when browsing through the Netflix Instant library as it starred both Paul Scheer and Nick Kroll. And wound up watching all 6 episodes of the first season in the matter of hours. The League is about a group of long-time friends involved in a fantasy football league, stopping at nothing with hopes of being the season's winner. Fans of Apatow-style comedy cannot afford to miss this series, which will soon be coming back with a third season.  (fxnetworks.com/shows/originals/theleague) 

TOOL: Travel Hacking Cartel – Accumulating airline miles means free airfares, and the Travel Hacking Cartel aims to get you on the road more for less. Offering a 14-day trial membership for $1, users can access a list of links and opportunities leading to airline miles and points for little or no money. Hotel and car rental offers are also included, and given the rapidly-growing subscriber-base consistently contributing their findings, the value is undeniable. (travelhacking.org)
