More reading about Buzzfeed and Gawker, an underrated Denzel Washington mystery, and a good country-rock reissue
Greetings from Read Max HQ, and welcome to our weekly roundup column, in which I pick out some worthwhile and often overlooked books, articles, movies, and music to recommend to paying subscribers. This week I’ve got:
A roundup of pieces I’ve been reading about Buzzfeed, Gawker, and the end of the viral traffic era of web publishing;
an underrated Denzel Washington noir; and
a good country-rock reissue from one of the Monkees.
If any of that sounds interesting -- and if you want to support Read Max in its continuing mission of explaining the future to relatively normal people -- please subscribe below. Subscribers get access to these weekly emails and to the comprehensive Read Max Master Lists of Good Movies to Watch and Good Books to Read. If you’re already a subscriber, thank you.
I love to hear from readers who want to recommend a cool book or movie (or whatever!) to me, or from readers who are looking for specific kinds of recommendations. Just leave a comment or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now, the roundup. First, as always, a dispatch from the future:
