Things we Loved this Week 5/17

Dead to Me on Netflix Solid television with quality performances by Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini. The strongest laughs come from the darkest comedy. Every episode ends with a shocking plot twist. (Bob Lee)

@myhotelcarpet A pilot named Bill Young stays in so many hotels he has decided to document the surreal, tacky and downright bizarre carpeting. They get creative trying to stop stains from showing. Enjoy the weirdness. Instagram link. (Elise Thompson)

Jonesy’s Jukebox I have briefly met Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols twice and both times he was a total jerk to me, so I have intentionally avoided anything having to do with him. But you cannot deny the quality of Jonesy’s Jukebox, his 2-hour radio show on KLOS that starts at noon daily. There is so little originality on standard am fm anymore his show shines with classic 70s hard rock, glam, and deep cuts from various British artists. The interviews can be a bit long, but if your fantasy is to sit in the back of a club listening to two old music legends reminiscing about the bad old days, you’ll love them too. Website.

Fresh Bread with Bacon Butter and Tomato Jam at Little Sister. The French influence on Viet Nam is evident in their love for good bread. Little Sister in Redondo Beach serves up a warm sesame-studded load with house made bacon butter and tomato jam. It makes you long for another loaf, but the bacon butter is so rich, it’s probably best not to overdo it. Little Sister. (Elise Thompson)
