Who Chose The Great Bear Sleeping Bag?

We called upon a distinguished panel of guests to take part in the 3rd Annual Life Elsewhere Holiday Gift Special and asked them to come up with three books and one non-book gift. The results are as diverse as they are intriguing and unpredictable. One guest selected for their non-book gift, a Great Bear Sleeping Bag. Can you guess who? Could it be frequent contributor and witty author, Mark Haskell Smith? Perhaps it was astute caricaturist and social commentator, Steve Brodner? Or maybe talented new British-American singer-songwriter Zuzu, who demonstrated in last week’s edition she has a cheeky sense of humor. Then there’s the erudite raconteur, Patrick O’Neil, a master of incorporating the unconventional into his tales. And, finally, did Robert Newman the esteemed creative director, widely recognized for his perceptive take on life, select the Great Bear Sleeping Bag? Find out in the next edition of Life Elsewhere.

Also in the program, we are very pleased to welcome back, renowned film and media critic, Bob Ross, who will give us his sensible overview of this year’s Holiday movie releases.

A Conversation With Zuzu

She is very proud of her heritage and wanted to make sure it was part of the conversation, “My father is half Iranian and half British, my mother is part Italian, part African American and part Native American,” she announces boldly, adding, “I think that’s a great thing!” Zuzu, an extraordinarily talented British musician speaks confidently with Norman B, on all manner of topics. She’s forthright and honest, disavowing any notion that she has to say or do what may be expected. Her music tells of her understanding of where influences come from, be it Robert Johnson or The Cocteau Twins. There is a maturity in her work, that harkens back to Soul and R & B, yet the results are truly now. She unabashedly references her parents and the music they played as she grew up. These are happy thoughts Zuzu embraces. With only a small sample of her musical abilities currently available, her debut album due out in 2016, is eagerly anticipated. Make sure you don’t miss Norman B’s conversation with Zuzu in the next edition of Life Elsewhere. Below is a sneak preview, with Zuzu talking about “people”.
