John Vanderslice Guest Editor on Magnet all week!

3hhs_17510001

If having taste isn’t half the battle, but the whole war, then John Vanderslice is a true conquerer. You will come across very few people with such an open mind and expansive palette.

This week, you can read about some of JV’s favorite things (kinda’ like Oprah’s, but not really) via Magnet’s weekly guest editor series. In his first post, he writes about the exceptional French film, The Class. One might think the story of an inner city school and its new teacher  (To Sir, with Love; Dangerous Minds, etc.) has been exhausted, but this is a tremendous film, and only the beginning of JV’s suggestions!

Also check out the Q&A with JV on Magnet, in which he discusses his latest album, White Wilderness and collaborating with Minna Choi and the Magik*Magik Orchestra, living in the Golden Age of music, and how he now approves of Bill Gates.
