This week’s theme is consumption, and we have four pieces by four very talented writers:
• Stephen Thomas Erlewine on Beck’s Song Reader, his album of sheet music;
• J. Pablo on Hood Chef, who uses his culinary know-how to bring his Brooklyn neighborhood closer together;
• Andy Hutchins on the racket of “parody” Twitter accounts, which make money off spewing retweetable banalities; and
• Jolie Kerr on how to make Stark & Dormy Balls, a dessert twist on the classic cocktail known as the Dark and Stormy.
