What to Doc: “Filmmaker Bing Liu searches for correlations between his skateboarder friends’ turbulent upbringings and the complexities of modern-day masculinity.” That’s how Hulu describes the excellent documentary, Minding the Gap. And it is those things. But more than that, it’s a small, human story of a kid who filmed his friends as they grew up together. Definitely worth a watch.

+ What to Doc: The other night, my son and I watched Grandson perform at the Fillmore in SF, and he killed it. Grandson is the hip hop moniker of Jordan Benjamin, a self-described skinny kid with a Jew-fro. His biggest hit is called Blood//Water. Check that out and more on Spotify. (Grandson is currently on tour opening for NextDraft-approved Nothing But Thieves, one of my faves.)

+ What to Book: Don Winslow just announced that the third book in his realistic Cartel series will be out in a few months. That makes this a good time to order the first two books and get yourself ready.
