This week on Missaligned, we discuss our April #MissalignedReads pick: Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. It’s a fictional young adult novel from 2006 that was turned into a movie in 2008, starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings.
Intro Song: “X Marks The Pact” – Boy Rex
We discuss our thoughts on Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, focusing on the characterization of the two titular characters, the involvement of playlists and music in both the film and book, as well as excessive usage of the “f-bomb.” Does this episode need a parental advisory label because of that? Maybe.
Our May Pick: Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!: The Story of Pop Music from Bill Haley to Beyoncé by Bob Stanley
Meghin: Lady Gaga — “The Cure,” Diet Cig — Swear I’m Good At This, Charly Bliss – Guppy
Deanna: Super American — Disposable
