6. TV: Miss Representation
Jennifer Newsom’s movie, which premieres October 20 as part of OWN’s Documentary Film Club, explores the media’s responsibility for the under-representation of women in positions of power. Influential women in politics, news, and entertainment such as Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Katie Couric, Geena Davis, Rosario Dawson, Jane Fonda, Nancy Pelosi, Condoleezza Rice, and Gloria Steinem are among those interviewed.
5. MUSIC: With the Wild Crowd! – Live in Athens, GA, The B-52s
The very first official live album from the B-52s — Cindy Wilson and gay members Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson and Keith Strickland — was recorded last February in the band’s hometown of Athens, Ga., on the 34th anniversary of their 1977 debut live performance. The lobster-rockin’ set includes high-energy hits like “Roam,” “Love Shack,” “Planet Claire,” and many songs from the group’s most recent studio album, 2008’s Funplex.
