Connecticut musician Dan Barrett's expansive discography as Have A Nice Life and Giles Corey exhibits his talents in capturing depression, mortality, and all aspects of human despair across a multitude of genres.

CT Recommends: ‘Shrink’

A show filled with Chicago-based improvisors from the iO and Second City, “Shrink” is an eight-episode series on the NBC/Amazon comedy streaming network, Seeso, and it’s the best show I’ve watched since “Atlanta.”

The breathiness of Lana Del Rey, the jazzy upbeat of Zooey Deschanel, and a devil’s-in-the-details touch that’s all her own, Angel Olsen’s album is one to dance around your room alone and maybe have a good cry to.

‘All the President’s Men’ deserves a rewatch

Though the book is far more detailed and exact, the 1976 film–starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford–expresses the paranoia of the era in all of its creeping eeriness.

CT Recommends: Simongamer987

The irrepressible YouTube star offers viewers a glimpse into his world through crazy antics and a unsettling dynamic with his cameraman.
