BuzzSugar's Must-Haves for January

BuzzSugar's Must-Haves for January

Happy 2008 and welcome to BuzzSugar's monthly must-haves, where I show off a handful of the things I'm most looking forward to watching, buying, renting and reading. I'm hoping to start the new year off right with the following goodies.

To see why these six things are at the top of my list, just


  • 2008 Sundance Film Festival — Not so much a "must-have" as a "must-go," the lineup for the Sundance Film Festival this year has me drooling. I can't wait to be in Park City, Utah in a few weeks, getting a first look at the industry's best independent films.
  • The Magnetic Fields: Distortion — This album, out Jan. 15, is the band's first since 2004's i. While this album doesn't have an obvious theme, the two songs I've heard so far, "Three-Way" and "California Girls," hint at a new musical direction — with Stephin Merritt's acerbic lyrics blissfully intact.
  • 3:10 to Yuma — Though it didn't make the cut as one of my top 10 favorite movies of 2007, I pretty much loved every minute of the remake of the old Western film 3:10 to Yuma starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale. You can read what I loved about the movie, but you may as well just rent it when it comes out on DVD January 8 and see for yourself.
  • Cat Power: Jukebox — I can't wait to hear Chan Marshall's sultry voice take on a new set of cover songs on this album, out Jan. 22. Jukebox, Cat Power's second covers record, includes songs originally recorded by artists including Janis Joplin and Frank Sinatra, along with two originals. A deluxe edition includes a second disc with five bonus tracks.
  • Duma Key: A Novel by Stephen King — I don't totally love everything Stephen King does but that won't prevent me from checking out his next novel, Duma Key, which will hit bookstore shelves January 22. The supernatural story follows a disturbed man whose paintings take on a terrifying life of their own.
  • Cashmere Mafia — The buzz has been building since ABC picked up the show last May; now, Cashmere Mafia is finally getting its premiere. The show's first episode airs Jan. 6 at 10 p.m., then moves into its regular Wednesdays-at-10 time slot. In addition to giving us some relief from the writers' strike, it also sets up the battle (with NBC's forthcoming Lipstick Jungle) for the rights to be the heir to Sex and the City.

Cat Power is featured on the Movie soundtrack for "Juno," which I plan on picking up soon. The movie is great too!

Love the new Cat Power album - she is so amazing. I've met her, and she's really nice and funny, too. I feel the same way about Stephen King - I hate a lot of his stuff lately, but end up trying it anyway, just because he is who he is!

I am really looking forward to Sundance. There are so many great things to do. We've narrowed down our movie we just have to wrangle tickets!
