In this feature, Daily Arts writers will give their endorsements
for the arts you need to experience to help you deal with current events.
The final "Twilight" movie is coming to theaters
and with that, the saga dies. Or does it? There's no
better time to revisit this generation's paramount
example of literary abstinence porn, a fantasy-
based endorsement of evangelical "family values"
and traditional gender roles that's guaranteed to
leave you wondering - about the plot holes, the
wooden characters, the juvenile writing and -of
LITTLE, BROWN AND COMPANY course, its inexplicable popularity.
FutureSex/LoveSounds - Justin
You know those albums that just kind of change
everything? In the R&B realm, that album is Justin
Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveSounds. The blend of
electro noise with JT's falsetto achieves one of the
most elegant intricate sounds heard in pop music in
the past decade. He really did bring sexy back. And
perhaps it's time to bring it back again. Where's our
new album, Justin?!

"Where has Bernadette
gone?" asks Semple, author of
the hit series, "Fifty Shades of
Grey: the Un-coaled Story,"
including bestseller, "This
One is Mine." "Where'd you
go, Bernadette" is the true
story of a girl on the run,
based on the Amelia Earhart
mystery, now escaping to
stores near you.
LIT TLE, BROWN AND COMPANY
Look, chances are, unless your parents had
fantastic genes, you'll be coming down with a few
colds in the near future. But instead of dreading the
time, think of it as a prime opportunity to catch up
on a few movies. 2011's "Moneyball" is a feel-good
underdog story, with a stellar cast: Brad Pitt, Philip
Seymour Hoffman and Chris Pratt make this an
upbeat, entertaining film.
The CW only casts the most beautiful humans
alive. "Arrow," the new drama series inspired by
the characters and storylines of DC's Green Arrow
canon, is no exception. The women are beautiful,
the men are chiseled. But "Arrow" offers more
than just pretty faces. The series brings comic
book tales to life with florid fight sequences and
punchy characters. Yes, it's very CW, but it's also
:w very DC. And they make a surprisingly great pair.
