This week has been a lot of looking backward. Mostly in a bittersweet way, but nonetheless fueled by a fair amount of emotions. My playlist feels the same, from the poignant lyrics of “Treading Water” to the guitar in “U R,” I have a lot of feelings and they confuse me so I try and ignore them but then great songs come on and I don’t know whether or not to let them “Ruin My Day.” Usually, I just relish in it. Feast your ears on those, and your eyes on these.
Videos worth the minutes you’ll spend watching them:
- Shane Koyczan’s spoken poetry with violin counterpart will literally take your breath away.
- If you, like me, are still obsessed with Breaking bad, check out this fan-made time lapse of filming locations.
- Ylvis. Back. “Massachusetts.” Seriously, just laugh.
Links to love:
- Benedict Cumberbatch as all of the Disney Princes. As if I didn’t already have a fairy tale complex.
- The latest online store where I just wish for more money, featuring the “Vulcan in the streets, Klingon in the sheets” tank.
- The great mystery of the Dyatlov Pass, as reported by Atlas Obscura. I love these kind of mysteries.
- Valise Magazine, my new travel magazine, and a piece you might recognize on traveling to Reykjavik.
Until next week, expect a lot of overdue writing. My brain is full of things!
