Make a MOVE this weekend
From “Tiny House Builders” to “Lemonade,” here’s what MOVE recommends for your weekend.
The perfect recipe for a good movie: a cute guy, strong females and the exact plot line of “Frozen.” OK, well, maybe not, but the formula seems to have worked for “The Huntsman: Winter's War.” The film came out April 22 and has debuted to mixed reviews. Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t recommend it, but no one can ignore the Thorific beauty of Chris Hemsworth. If you want to see another Hemsworth gem, stay in and check out “Love and Honor” on Netflix, featuring Chris’ little bro, Liam.
Show to binge
What is the deal with tiny houses? I get the general idea, but when people pay $60,000 for a house the size of my mother’s closet, it just doesn’t make sense. Beyond the general nonsensical nature of the high price tag, it’s very fun to watch people attempt to find a tiny house, only to complain about how cramped the house is. “Tiny House Builders” just premiered on Netflix, and with only a few episodes, the show gives a great introduction to the entertaining tiny house movement. You’ll be building yourself an overpriced pint-sized paradise in no time. (Or just buy a regular house; it’ll literally cost you the same amount of money.)
When Beyonce drops an album, everyone listens. “Lemonade” premiered late Saturday night, and it is certainly worth the money, whether you buy it on iTunes or get a Tidal subscription. In the visual version of the album that accompanies the iTunes purchase, Serena Williams makes an appearance and Beyonce slays with unforgiving lyrics like “You ain’t married to no average bitch boy,” “Keep your money, I got my own” and “If you try this shit again, you gon’ lose your wife.” The entire album is an R&B masterpiece, and who can deny Beyonce’s flawlessness?
“Hamilton: The Revolution,” a book by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter, came out April 12. Affectionately referred to as the “Hamiltome,” the book encompasses the behind-the-scenes of “Hamilton” the Broadway show that has been taking the nation by storm. Miranda wrote more than 200 footnotes for the book, and with his witty, inspiring humor, nothing is better. If there’s a million things you haven’t done, put this book at the top of your list.
Wine and recipe
Nothing is better than apple crisp and Sauternes, a sweet French wine. It’s always fun to impress your friends with fancy cooking and a great wine. (Plus, apples are a fruit, so you can definitely tell your parents you’re being somewhat healthy.)
“When life gives you lemons, you probably just found lemons.” Funny man Bo Burnham is coming to MU at 8 p.m. tomorrow in Jesse Hall, and tickets are $20 for students and $35 for the public. The show should feature a lot of inappropriate jokes and satirical songs, so it’s a great event to go to with friends.
MIZZOU FRIENDS: I've seen Bo 3 times so I obviously recommend going to this tomorrow!! https://t.co/Wn1XXmgjn3— Jacey Schank (@jaceyschank) April 28, 2016
Country singer Kacey Musgraves is coming to play at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday at 9th Street Summerfest. The event is a “rain or shine” concert and the outdoor vibes will definitely bring on the sweet taste of summer. Musgraves is a pretty big deal, as she’s pretty much a country darling with an armful of ACM Awards, so this is a fun event for everyone in CoMo. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the show.
