Bob Odenkirk, Colin Hanks and Patton Oswalt Take a Swig of Disco Demolition; Pressure Makes Diamonds Shines in Essence Magazine

The only thing that could make the legendary record-burning riot of Disco Demolition night more exciting? Tequila shots and Better Call Saul actor Bob Odenkirk. Odenkirk appeared on Comedy Central’s Drunk History on December 6 to retell the infamous story of the night that disco died, in between drinks, of course. As the author of the foreword for Steve Dahl’s account, Disco Demolition, there was no one better than Odenkirk to hilariously recount this tale. The story was acted out by Patton Oswalt and Colin Hanks, and resonated so strongly with comedy and music fans alike that it was quickly picked up in articles on SlateSPIN, and the Chicago Tribune as early as December 6. Rolling Stone followed up with an article on December 7 quoting Odenkirk several drinks in as he said, “[Disco Demolition] was like one massive tweet sent out by a generation of kids, and they pressed a button and said, “We don't like disco that much, OK?’”
 
Considered one of the most successful advertising executives in the country, Valerie Graves may seem like she has it all, but that wasn’t always the case. In order to launch her business career as an African-American woman in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement, Graves had to fight harsh criticism and discrimination. The story of her success as she pushed above and beyond those who would oppose her is chronicled in her memoir Pressure Makes Diamonds: Becoming the Woman I Pretended to BeEssence Magazine is set to highlight Graves and her book in a review in its January 2017 issue. BuzzFeed loved Graves’ story so much that they named Pressure Makes Diamonds one of “8 Memoirs to Read if You’re Looking for Inspiration This Holiday Season” in an article published November 15, adding that “Readers will see a new side to the advertising mogul and learn that nothing is impossible.”
