LEGO White Noise – Spotify

A 7-hour album of LEGO ASMR might not be your cup of tea, but it’s exactly what I need right now.


Halt and Catch Fire Syllabus

This site features a curriculum developed around the television series, Halt and Catch Fire (2014-2017), a fictional narrative about people working in tech during the 1980s-1990s.

This is a wonderfully curated site all about giving you the best context around each episode of Halt and Catch Fire. I can think of few TV shows that deserve a syllabus like this. I can’t wait to dive into it.


From Cover to Cover

Jenny Volvovski redesigns book covers after she reads them. I love this idea.


Billie Eilish: Same Interview, The Fourth Year

For the last four years, Vanity Fair have been doing an interview with Billy Eilish where they ask her the same questions each year year. They first caught her in 2017, right before she blew up, so it’s amazing to watch the changes as she’s become one of the biggest pop stars in the world.


Laura Hudson live-tweets her readthrough of Ready Player Two

A hilarious thread from someone who hated the first book as much as I did. But what’s with the random, selective takedowns of pictures of her highlighted passages from the book? Who is the copyright holder in cases where it’s a photo of a book that only contains whole passages from other, better things?


Orthographic media

Robin Sloan:

Browsing Twitter the other day, I once again found myself sucked into a far-off event that truly does not matter, and it occurred to me that social media is an orthographic camera.

This has been stuck in my brain since Robin mentioned it because I think he’s hit the nail right on the head. I look at my Twitter timeline and see jokes and breakfast updates and outrage given the same space and importance as world-changing news events. No wonder we’re all so exhausted.
