Dear Zola Story, Stop Playing With Me

Thirty years, I gave y’all thirty years of my life waiting on this movie and when you released the trailer I got mad hype. My friend who apparently lives under a rock got addicted to the tweets and now we both waiting, as June 30th crawls achingly slow for the release. If y’all don’t hurry up…Is anyone else chomping at the bit to see this movie finally?! Via: A24

Daisy Jones & The Six

Just finished this book written by Taylor Jenkins Reid, it’s based on rock legends Fleetwood Mac. It’s about a bands rise to fame, despite behind the scenes tension and drug abuse. It’s as if the more contentious their dynamics, the better the music. Still, the success wasn’t enough to keep them together.

I’m assuming it’s based on the ‘Rumors’ era. Fleetwood Mac locked themselves in their studio with copious amounts of cocaine. John and Christine McVie were splitting up, she started dating one of the sound guys I believe, exes Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham hated each other, plus she started having an affair with the married Mick Fleetwood. Similar storylines play out in this book, which has been picked up as an Amazon miniseries starring Riley Keough.

I love the way the book delves into the creative process of making music, specifically songwriting. Would you give it all up if it wasn’t making you happy?
