What I’m watching/reading: If you’re tired of all the political b.s. being thrown around lately, watch this first, then watch this, and have your faith in humanity reaffirmed…maybe…

Recently excited by: Apple’s random and sudden Music Memos app. I’m no musician, but there are songs I’ve been trying to figure out how to play and failed miserably, and this helped me figure chords I’ve spent hours trying to figure out.

Weekly bits: Lifeline, the game. It’s like Choose Your Own Adventure meets real time game play. Meaning that if your character goes to sleep for 8 hours, you can’t continue playing for 8 hours. It might sound like a limitation, but it actually makes it more fun.

Quote o’ the week: Reading’s for morons who can’t understand pictures. -Galavant

Song o’ the week: Annie Lennox – Fingernail Moon

What I’m watching/reading: just finished watching the first season of the Man in the High Castle. Gripping stuff and an interesting thought exercise on what would happen if the Nazis won WWII.

Recently excited by: I just started doing the 365 photo project, where I take and post a picture a day. I’m excited but nervous about whether or not I can keep this up, especially when 90% of my time is spent at a boring office job. It’ll be an interesting challenge to see if I can

Weekly bits: Wait But Why has a really long, really insightful multi-part article on Elon Musk that’s an incredibly interesting read. It goes into Musk’s ideas about the problems facing mankind and his solutions for our future. But it’s not just about Musk…the reasoning behind the whys of why he’s doing what he’s doing is must-read material for anyone else who cares about how to make an impact on the world.
Plus, stick figure cartoons!

Quote o’ the week:
What is it with people?!?

At best, people are assholes, at worst, they’re zombie assassins. -Jessica Jones

Song o’ the week: the Destroyer – Out of Babel
It’s like…death metal meets klezmer…death klezmer?

Inspired by Tim Ferriss’ “5-Bullet Friday“, here’s a list of what I’m currently enjoying, inspired by, and recommending to others.

What I’m watching/reading: This is a True Story. I just watched Kumiko the Treasure Hunter, which is based on a sort of urban legend that sprung up about a real-life story. This is a True Story is a short documentary about the story behind the story.

Recently excited by: a great BLTA w/egg croissant sandwich @ Blackmarket Bakery in Costa Mesa. Gotta add the egg!

Weekly bits: Trader Joe’s Pork Belly…slice it up, torch ’em or put ’em under the broiler for just a bit (they’re already cooked), and throw them in your instant ramen.

Quote o’ the week:

Then you will die stupid.
-Doctor Who”

Song o’ the week: “>Peter Gabriel’s version of Tom Waits’ In the Neighborhood
